“Monsters are tragic beings; they are born too tall, too strong, too heavy, they are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy"-Ishiro Honda
Seabozu is an odd monster to begin with for the Vault, but I’ve chosen him because he embodies the meeting of the camp aspects of monster films and the more serious side.
Appearing in an episode 35 of the original Ultraman series titled, “The Monster Graveyard,” the kaiju Seabozu is unlike any other being faced by Ultraman. The Science Patrol (the protagonists in this procedural show) stumble on the Monster Graveyard while taking a stroll through space and are informed that it is the home of all the kaiju dispatched by Ultraman. It’s a distorted region in space-time we are later told, and the souls of the kaiju go to this realm where their bodies are then reconstituted and they live in a state of perpetual…peace? Bliss? Confusion? It’s unclear, except that Seabozu is content being there.
