Some more translated text from what I imagine is a news page...


Decision version of "Mystery Disk UFO" Magazine published by Mr. Anno in the release band Comment, talk event is instantaneous
It is on sale May 6th.



 Material collection of SF special effects drama masterpiece "Mystery Disk UFO", also known as "Mysterious Disk UFO Complete Data Collection" will be released by Yoizumi company. It is scheduled to be released on May 6, and the price is 3800 yen (excluding tax).


 The staff of "Thunderbird" gathered again, the same work of precise special effects video is highlighted. Unlike "Thunderbird" where the character was a doll, it is characterized by screen combining special effects and live-action actors. It was broadcasted in Japan from 1970 to 1971.

 "Complete documentation" contains several interviews with the surviving staff by Stephen Lalibie. Steven got funds from Cloud Funding in 2015 and produced a new episode of "Thunderbird" in the same way as in the 1960s. Also, in addition to the large number of first-time steel photographs posted, posted commentary on works by Yasushi Kishikawa who also has names as editors posted. It is a book of fan donation (SUISHO).


The work is also known to have had a tremendous impact on Japanese creators. Among them, it is famous that the opening of white characters on black background and the depiction of Earth Defense Organization "SHADO" to repel UFOs later influenced the opening of "Neon Genesis Evangelion" and the organizational image of Nerf.
