NEGADON: The Monster From Mars / Studio Magara - 2005
I picked up this little Japanese gem over a year ago after reading a review about it. It is a computer generated short movie that's about a cargo-spaceship that crash-lands on the streets of Tokyo and it unleashes a giant monster from Mars. It's up to Dr. Narasaki and his mecha robot Miroku to save the Earth...
I've spent most of my life visualizing various space scenes, I get turned on with images like this one of a space station orbiting the Earth because of how realistic it looks.
I've got a little sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button over by our crashed up space capsule, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's a sample of... NEGADON!
This is Dr. Narasaki, a distraught scientist who lost his daughter in an accident during an experiment in the lab. He's also the creator of an awesome giant robot called Miroku.
Here's the space cargo ship returning to Earth from Mars as it explodes.
The pieces from the cargo ship crash into Tokyo (what else) and the Negadon monster rises from the explosion only to start destroying everything around it!
Dr. Narasaki decides it's time to bring his robot, Miroku, out of moth balls, and, it isn't long before he locates the monster with his robot sensors.
Miroku has a special drill bit that is made from the strongest metal ever made, a handy device if you have to go up against something like Negadon!
Dr. Narasaki decides he needs to take the fight into space, near the Moon, where he can grapple with the thing without destroying any more of Tokyo.
After following Miroku into space, Negadon activates its deadly weapon, ready to fight!
But, Dr. Narasaki has other plans, you can hear him in the sound clip cursing the Hellish thing.
Miroku attacks and the drill bit grinds its way through the creatures brain, then the doctor hits a button that explodes both of them into oblivion! A bitter sweet end to this tale... Eegah!! is back tomorrow for a special 4th of July post, be there!!
