Ultraman is one of the first superhero in Japan since 1966. It's another great Japanese pop culture that drove deep into the heart of most Japanese.

Kamen Rider is the next Japanese pop culture to Ultraman. If Ultraman is Superman in Japan, then Kamen Rider is Batman in Japan.

In the 70's there was a whole series of Japanese bookshelf games based on various manga artists' art. This title was based on art from Akatsuka Fujio. He was very prolific and a lot his manga were made into TV programs.

It's a retheme of a Korean card game. The new theme is from a hot Japanese anime "Sword Art Online".
