(I've posted this in the discussions already but I'm going to post it here as well for anyone who didn't see it and is interested, especially as time is running out on the campaign)
Back in the 1970's, Toho created a TV show called "Zone Fighter" about a family of alien refugees who survive the destruction of their homeworld when it's destroyed by an evil race of aliens known as the Garoga and their army of kaiju they've created or recovered. The family manage to create a new life on Earth, but spring into action to defend Earth when the Garoga arrive to try to conquer it - with the family's eldest son Hikaru able to transform into a kaiju-sized warrior to battle the Garoga's various monsters.
While the show itself is compared to "Ultraman", Zone Fighter has the advantage of not only been set in the Godzilla Showa Era timeline (inbetween "Godzilla vs. Megalon" and "Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla") but also includes Gigan and King Ghidorah in the show as villains on separate occasions while Godzilla appears as Zone Fighter's ally on different occasions.
Sadly until now, the show's episodes have recieved little or no English Subtitles, while it's chronology in the Godzilla Showa Era timeline makes the show highly sought after by a lot of Godzilla fans. This Indiegogo campaign is hoping to change that by having all the episodes of the series translated into English for western audiences - with the (flexible) goal set at $500.
So far, $320 has been raised but there is less than 9 days left to go before the end of the campaign.
