Tsuburaya Production30th anniversary work[2]..For the company, "Ultraman 80This is the first full-scale special effects TV series in 12 years since[3].. The catch phrase is "Your passion called the hero.'[4].


As an element that characterizes this work, Khan Digifer materializes the monster created by Takeshi Todo.PC communicationTransfer to a computer or home appliances and let them rampageProgramIs not even known to the general public at the time, destroying the world and resulting in turmoil in the real world.むンタヌネット,Computer virusThere is a setting that anticipates the rise of[5][Annotation 1]..Since all the battles are happening in the computer, only four people, Naoto, Ippei, Yuka, and Takeshi, know the existence of monsters and Gridman, until they are recognized by the general public in episodes 4 and 25. Not known at all.

The setting that the main character who transforms into a hero is a 14-year-old junior high school student is rare as a special effects program, but those who support it and those who are hostile are all 14-year-old boys and girls, and the whole story is drawn from the perspective of young people There is.Naoto and Takeshi are classmates, and although they have acquaintance with each other, they are completely unaware that they are in a hostile position until the end of the game.

"Ultra seriesIn Tsuburaya special effects works such as ”, the giant hero did not change its appearance significantly, but in this work, a new element is included that the mechanic who supports the hero is transformed and united in a shape like armor. Ta[5]..In the Heisei Ultraman series that will be broadcast later, "Ultraman Tiga』Since the type change, the setting of" changing the form according to the situation "has become customary, and experimental elements have been brushed up and incorporated.

On the technical side, some were digitized, but most video recording and video effects were analog.First of all, it is rare for a special effects work at that time, which was mainly filmVTRIt is taken by the method[3],Over-baking of filmThe strict restrictions on video composition caused by[Annotation 2]That was innovative.VTRBy becoming a methodCCD cameraIs now available, and the opening video of going through the model is possible[8]..Video composition andMotion control cameraEtc., the advanced technology of that time is fully utilized[5][7][9]However, the method of shooting costumes and miniature models has not changed, and it was the latest technology at that time.Computer graphicsThe use of was limited to a part.Until the 13th episode, the color tone was conscious of the film, but after the 14th episode, it was changed to a brighter color tone.[3].

Most of the staff who participated in this work are young, except for directors and photographers, and many of them later became the main staff of the Heisei Ultraman series.[10][11]..In charge of shootingShinichi OokaAnd production progressHiroyasu ShibuyaStates that the experience of this work was utilized in the Heisei Ultraman series etc.[12][11], The first work "Ultraman Tiga], The video composition technology established in this work is fully utilized.

Planning process

Toy makerTakara(Currentタ カ ラ ト ミ ヌ) Is "Cyber ​​police cybercop』(1988,TohoProduction/NTV series) As one of the plans for multiple different directions of the second special effects live-action route1989Was planning a huge hero work "Cyberman"[13][14][15][16]..This project was completed at the internal examination stage, but a support robot is scheduled to appear from the reflection that "There was no large product at Christmas time in'Cybercop'", and "Two support mechas are armor for the hero. At this point, the concept of "combining with each other" has also emerged.[Annotation 3], These "superhuman union concept" of this workTemplateIs said to have become[17][14][15]..The setting of the computer world is also a further development of the electronic image of "Cybercop".[13], It is said that the main reason is that the atmosphere can be deceived on the screen and the set can be reused, and there was also a situation where the miniature of the work affiliated with Bandai could not be diverted.[18].

After that, the TV anime "Super Electric Robot Tetsujin 28 FXThe project of this work started in the summer of 1992 as a huge hero work "Big Man" by another development team of Takara who was in charge of[3][13], Kazumitsu Akamatsu of Red Company who participated in the planning of "Cyberman" joined as the person in charge, and the skeleton of "Gridman" was completed.[19]. AndBrave series"Super Electric Big Man" was created as the second installment of "Super Electric Robo Tetsujin 28 FX", a toy for Tetsujin No. 28 FX equipped with a "super electric" gimmick using a sensor and a microcomputer circuit.[14].. The title of "Big Man" comes from the fact that we were particular about making it a giant hero for the convenience of providing support mecha.[13], Was used up to the decision design and the scenario stage of episodes 1 and 2.[17][3]..Initially, it was planned to be broadcast on NHK, but it was said that it was broadcast because NHK presented a fantasy-oriented one with a girl as the main character.[19][18].

Initially, it was considered to order production from Toho through the connection from "Cybercop", but Tsuburaya Productions was selected because of its track record in giant hero works.[17]..Then, Tsuburaya Productions and Yomiko Advertising Co., Ltd. decided to combine the concept of "Cyberman" mecha and weapons with "Bigman", but the name was changed to "Gridman" due to trademark registration. Tata[16].

Tsuburaya Productions was considering a new TV series of the Ultra series as a work commemorating the 30th anniversary of its founding, but it did not come to fruition, and this work was positioned as a work commemorating the 30th anniversary of its founding.At that time, Tsuburaya Productions and TBSUltraman FestivalAlthough a certain relationship was maintained due to such reasons,Ultraman 80The Cold War with the management continued due to the conflict over ”, but he cooperated fully with the production.FujitsuWith the support, it became possible to acquire broadcast slots.[20].

Sales of toys were strong, but due to production budgets, etc., all 39 episodes were completed.[24][21]..The audience rating was 2.9% for the first time and 9.5% for the final time, which was a significant leap forward.After the end of this work, Takara had a plan for the next work with Takeshi and Grid Knight as the main characters.[24][23][13], Both sponsors and broadcasting stations showed disapproval, so this development was postponed.This idea was later developed and inherited in the magazine serialization "Denkou Chojin Gridman Demon King's Counterattack".[21].

As a sequel project different from the story with Takeshi and Knight as the main characters, Tsuburaya Productions set the stage two years after this work.Dengeki Superman Gridman F (Fighter)』Also exists in parallel[21][23][22]..Alexis Kerib, the emperor of the demon world who has renewed the characters other than Ippei and leads the five monster army, started invading with a high school girl named Akane Shinjo as a puppet, and Hibiki who is a classmate of Ippei who entered Tsutsujidai Technical High School. I was planning a story about a boy named Yuta fighting with Gridman, but this was also put into storage.[23][22]..Some names and settings are the TV anime version of "SSSS.GRIDMAN』Incorporated as a homage[25][22].

The energy body "Hyper Agent", which has been chasing the Demon King Khan Digifer from another world Hyper World, has become two-dimensional, borrowing the appearance of the CG character "Gridman" drawn by Ippei as the guardian deity of junk. What you did[23][36][30][16][37]..A person who is always a dignified hero.However, in the 17th episode, he sometimes thought that the hackers who accessed the junk were direct people, and apologized for the detour by stealing Misumi's data.Combined with Naoto who was sucked into the computer world by the access flash emitted from the acceptor[37], A three-dimensional gridman is formed[36]..After that, by letting the whole body get the energy from the crystal converter, it becomes huge to 70m.[37].

Since Naoto is one and the same, Naoto's injury and loss of fighting spirit also affect Gridman.

Immediately after uniting with Naoto, it is life-sized, but by incorporating Yuka's enormous program, it becomes enormous to the same size as a monster.
Energy lamp[35][36][37]
It usually glows blue, but when Gridman's activity energy decreases or the linked junk is powered down, a blinking and warning sound informs the limit of activity.
  • The warning sound is sampled based on the synthesizer sound.[39].
Grand Acceptor[35][37]
It has the same shape as the item "Acceptor" for Naoto to merge with Gridman, and when Naoto merges with Gridman, it stays in Gridman's left arm.There is no combat power because it was not installed at the beginning of materialization[37]..Its Special Move Grid Beam is launched from here.

There was also one act in which Yuka was usually in charge of entering the code, and Ippei could not be dispatched because he misspelled it as "GRIDOMAN" (Episode 31).
The armor part of the initial suit used for special shooting of the promoter material was painted in metallic silver, and the crystal on the chest was also transparent.[40][36]..The shooting suit had a lot of reflections, so the armor was repainted in a matte gray, and the eyes and crystals were translucent.[40][36][41]..The mask is a new rubber-like material for up and FRP for action.[41]..Since the mask and body are stained and painted from the middle, the condition differs depending on the shooting time, and the action mask is also slightly stronger than the up one.[41]..For the armor of the limbs, the laminated urethane foam is scraped off and synthetic leather is pasted on it.[41]..The eyes had tracing paper and a small light bulb inside, but since they hit the eyes of a suit actor, they were removed for still photography.[41]..There was a black line on the neck from the design drawing stage, but it was buried after consideration[36].

Naoto said in front of the junk, "Access flash'[34]And press the blue button in the center, Naoto becomes a suit for the computer world and is sucked into the junk and merges with Gridman.Even after Naoto merges with Gridman, he stays in his left arm and shoots a deadly ray.Grand AcceptorBecome[37]..You can also call Gridman inside the junk by pressing the golden button at the top.
In episode 22, the computer at the excavation work site was used for coalescence, but Gridman used too much energy to summon Naoto to the junk, causing a power-down earlier than usual.
In episode 30, Gridman fired rays from both eyes against Naoto who was manipulated by Jubagon's compliant rays and refused to combine, forcibly activating the acceptor and forcibly combining.[44].
  • At the scenario stage, it was called "Cyber ​​Breath"[28].
  • Rounded to fit safely on the child's arm[19]..The toy is one-third the size because the one used in the shooting is a duplicate of the prototype.[19].
  • There are three ways to assemble the hands, one with Oo bending the elbow of the left arm at 90 degrees and pushing the acceptor with the right hand, and Muraishi's intention to stick out the left arm forward and bend the elbow at 90 degrees. Some of them are cross-shaped arms that are used in the toy version of the acceptor commercial.[45][Annotation 9]..Of the role of NaotoMasaya ObiTestifies that the way of transformation has changed slightly for each director.[46]..In order to make the union bank and the daily drama part consistent, the costume was inserted.[36].

Grid Kinesis[44][47]
