The Toei Tokusatsu Fan Club app service announced at an event on Saturday that Toei and the Tokusatsu Research Institute are producing an original live-action kaijū show titled Series Kaijū-ku Galace (Series Monster Ward Galace, spelling not confirmed). The show will premiere on the app in early spring 2019.
Ryōtarō Kogushi of the Tokusatsu Research Institute is directing the show, and Hiroshi Butsuda from the same company is the supervisor. Kaori Kanako, who wrote scripts for the Kaitō Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger film, is writing the script for the show. Hideki Tajima from Ishimori Pro is in charge of kaijū design, Tomo Hyakutake is in charge of kaijū modeling, and Hidetsuna Kuwabara is the sound designer.
Toei will reveal the show's cast in late November.
The Toei Tokusatsu Fan Club app service allows users to stream more than 200 titles in the Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, and other tokusatsu (lit. special effects) hero shows. The service also features special programs and columns, early access to reserving attendance at events, and limited goods. The app launched in 2015 and the service costs 960 yen (about US$8.60) per month.
