Well, I came across this website with a lot of Ultra Series info and triva and behind-the-scenes stuff, eg. Kaiju suit designing. I think the info there can be added to many of the pages here. Maybe even good enough for an entire "behind the scenes" section on pages. Maybe. There's actually so much stuff on the site I can't add all on my own cos im busy...so anyone who wants to help...please go explore this site http://tokusatsujapan.info/Read more >
Some thoughts/interesting stuff about Demon's kaijin in Triple Fighter
- Darkman: Sent specifically to track down the 3 Planet M aliens who escaped, for some reason Demon needed to hunt them down.
- Geran: Another attempt to kill them, he sprayed gas from his hands that somehow trapped the fighters in another dimension... He was the only kaijin to make Triple Fighter's Timer blink. The blinking was weird as they switched the colour of the timer on his chest and cut the film to make it seem like it was flashing.
- Doctor Apache: Sent to use the "Killing Machine No. X14" It was revealed to be a bomb that could destroy Earth. So did Demon want to invade or destroy Earth??
- Bararan: Sent to kidnap a professor Yamamura and to steal his secret of "Positron Ray…
Tsuburaya has broadcast all episodes of Triple Fighter series on youtube, an now that I've watched the whole series, here are some thoughts.
This series revolves around 3 Aliens fron Planet M(the three Fighters) fighting against Demon and his kaijin, who had previously destroyed their planet and seek to conquer Earth. The fighters have the ability to merge into Triple Fighter (character). Well, i've always liked obscure tokusatsu, and Triple Fighter is one of them.

The special effects are weird at times, for example, when revived Black Killer, Black Thunder, and Kumoderan merged, there was a huge smuge and then Blooder a…Read more >
Go! Orange Fighter Opens the Mind's Eye--Mirror Kaijin Mirage Appears
Episode 20 of Triple Fighter (series)... Mushroon headed Mirage somehow causes a truck driver carrying some junk and toys to crash with his reflection powers. Lily went to help get the truck back up and helped tow the truck until she almost crashed into "herself". So they simply filmed someone in the helmet in front and the SAT Buggy driving forward
Later, the kaijin fought with Yuji amd Tetsuo for a while and then disappeared. Later, when Mirage appeared to attack Lily, the truck guy disappeared, causing her to later think that he might be the kaijin(That's what I think happened). Lily sort of refused to tow the truck guy anymore...but then they run into more Devila (Why …Read more >
A random episode review for Triple Fighter! Large Tornado of Revenge! -- Temper-Joe Appears
Episode 21 of Triple Fighter is rather unique out of the series. The kaijin, Temper-Joe, apparently was friends with Barbeeboo, and wanted to get revenge of Triple Fighter after he was killed. I used to think this series was just kaijin after kaijin each week with no connection to each other...but nah...

Temper seems to be crying out "My friend Barbeeboo!" from what I understand of the Japanese. He's really frustrated and sad about his friend's death that he's bashing Demon's sacred rock walls...The flashback scene of BBB's death seems re-filmed. I don't think the scene was like that in Japanese Archepelago episode. The explosion was very far from wher…
