Redman (レッドマン, Reddoman) is a Japanese tokusatsu television series. A Kyodai Hero programme, featuring the titular hero growing to immense size and fighting similarly sized monsters. Originally broadcast as 138 five-minute segments as part of the children’s variety show Ohayo! Kodomo Show on Nippon TV, it was produced by Tsuburaya Productions. Redman was initially aired between April 3, 1972, to September 8 of that same year. In 2016, Tsuburaya Productions uploaded the series to its official YouTube channel.
It is similar in many ways to Tsuburaya Productions’ other Kyodai Hero programmes, particularly the Ultra Series, with all of Redman’s foes being reused Ultra Series monsters. The titular hero, described as a peace-loving alien from Planet Red in the Red Nebula, has a reputation among fans for the level of aggression he displays in fights, earning the fan nickname of Red Phantom Killer (赤い通り魔, Akai Tōrima). Redman’s original premise, similar to that of various other Tsuburaya Kyodai Heroes, is that he is an incorporeal alien being who, upon escaping the destruction of Planet Red, bonds with Officer Sakomizu of the Scientific Investigation Agency (SIA) and must protect Earth from evil spirits that are able to revive fallen monsters from the dead.
