The Showa era (昭和時代), is the period of the Japanese history that identifies the years between 1926 and 1989, under Emperor Hirohito, the Japanese people have lived tragic events like the WWII, and very happy moments like the so-called “Japanese Miracle”, when the economy grew three times faster than other major nations without any help from foreign countries. But Showa era is important also for the pop-culture side, indeed this can be considered as the “golden age” of the Kaiju Eiga, and the Tokusatsu TV series.
Some of the most Japanese pop-icons has been created during period such as Godzilla, that in the first movies it was portrayed as an evil, destructive monster – a perfect metaphor to represent the power of the atomic bomb – and only with the release of “Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster” (1964), he became the heroic monster who battle against other titanic creatures to keep safe the Japan.
After the big success of Godzilla, Eiji Tsuburaya, the co-creator of the giant monster, founded his own company and created one of the most franchises in TV industry: Ultraman. During the years many other studios like as Daiei, Shochiku, Nikkatsu, and Toei has entered in these new genres of sci-fi creating characters like Gamera, Daimajin, Guilala Gappa, and Kamen Rider!
