Undoubtedly one of the most influential anime TV series to be broadcasted on Japanese public TV, the Ultraman series was originally premiered and televised by TBS (Tokyo Broadcast System) from October 1967 to September 1968. Ultraman played the role of guardian of the earth from Alien invaders in the series, leading a double life between a member of the Science Patrol agency and Ultraman. The show was a smash hit, leading to countless spinoffs and tributes.
This T-shirt pays homage to the Monster Attack Team (MAT), a special organization from the Ultraman series that battles monsters. Comprised of the Ultraman Seven and the Ultra Guard, the MAT fends off monsters thanks to the arsenal of the Special Expeditionary Corps'. One of their gadgets, called the "MAT Vehicle", gained popularity due to its futuristic appearance and classical atmosphere. SDA's designers pay homage to the show that they grew up on, a classic icon of early Japanese anime culture. Bridging the gap between Japanese sensibility and a classic TV show, the T-shirts will each be shipped in an original metal green tea can.
