A boy with a superhero obsession collides with an alien in disguise
and picks up what he thinks is a free calling card. Using a phone
booth he trys to call his classmate/girlfriend and ends up
transforming into an exact duplicate of her. Then, while walking
over to her place, he's mistaken for her and kidnapped for ransom.
Eventually, with the help of the alien, he escapes, makes it to
another phone booth with his girlfriend and transforms into a
powerful Ultraman type superhero to defeat the bad guys. A
refreshing change from the usual bump-n-bodyswap common in japanese
TSF stories. I wonder if it's an intentional take on the old
Superman changing-in-a-phonebooth concept and the old Shazam
boy-becomes-superhero idea. Set up nicely for an ongoing series,
but unknown if that happened.
