Description

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.
