Ultraman Wiki

Two Big Monsters Close in on Taro! is the seventeenth episode of Ultraman Taro.


Kotaro is visiting Mt. Okuma, where frequent volcanic eruptions have begun to trouble the villagers. Are they a portent of things to come? Kotaro is concerned as well, and he visits an earthquake research center, where Kenichi’s friend (Takeshi’s father) works. Later that night, when Takeshi cuts a watermelon, a larva of an ancient monster, Kemjila, emerges from the flesh and blinds Takeshi with its spray. Meanwhile, another ancient monster Birdon, is awoken by another eruption. Worse yet, it senses that its old prey, Kemjila, has woken as well!
