Red Shadow Saves the Day by Loneanimator Red Shadow Saves the Day by Loneanimator
Japanese TV show "Kamen no Ninja Akakage" from 1967 had superhero ninjas, kaijus and magic. What more could you wish for?

There was even an anime version back in the late eighties.

Yes, and I think the anime has by now eclipsed the live-action version, which isn't as well-known anymore.

There are English-dubbed compilation movies made from this series, which might be more accessible than watching it in Japanese without subtitles (though subtitled is surely the best).  NINJASCOPE was done in Hong Kong by the usual suspects, while the other two which I cannot remember titles for were Filipino-English dubbed as faux sequels to WATARI.  There was a BCI release of them several years ago.  I know you're not in the U.S., but it was this. --> www.amazon.com/Red-Ninja-3-Fil…

You really captured the wonky charm of the show in this piece!

It seems quite a few of these old TV shows were made into compilation films. It's not the best way to view the material, but if you can't find the original show..
Glad you like my little version :)

Thanks! Japanese TV shows and movies are always very colorful, so they're perfect for fan art.

"Kamen no Ninja Akakage" was the first live-action Tokusatsu TV show in color, so it should be better remembered. But it's been kind of overshadowed by a later anime version.

Crazy stuff, in a way that makes you go "of course that would happen!" :)

I know one of the suits from this Toei show was the giant frog suit from Magic Serpent.

So many people just can't stand having monsters in their neighborhood. Discrimination lives. Sigh.

Well, I can't speak for others, but I always have my magic ninja sword on stand-by.

 I don't know about anyone else but a few beautiful damsels wouldn't be entirely out of the question, would they?

I saw stuff on YouTube some years ago, but I can't find anything at the moment.
