Despite ZAT’s support, Ultraman Taro is mortally wounded while fighting Birdon. With the Ultra hero out of the way, Birdon kills Kemjila and devours it. Seemingly satisfied, Birdon flies away, leaving ZAT and the other survivors in the wreckage with their immobile hero. All hope is not lost, however; when the children pray to God to rescue Taro, Zoffy descends from the heavens, coming to his successor’s aid. Zoffy returns Taro’s dead body to the Land of Light so that he can be resurrected.
Ultraman Taro Volume 5 features episodes 18-21.
