Maybe everyone already knows about this but it's new to me:

Tokyo-based production group Gaijin Channel is producing a new on-going documentary web series covering Japan’s traditional special effects films, including Godzilla, Gamera, Ultraman and more.

Around the world these films have become infamous for their bad dubbing, campy monster suits and miniature buildings, and arguably provide the definition for the word “cheese”. Yet with a history of over half a century, the monsters and heroes of these unique special effects productions have become an integral part of Japanese popular culture. Why do they remain popular in today’s age of CGI? Why are they still being produced? And how much do we really know about them?

Almost as good as Japanorama. Check it out!
To watch Anime is life. All else is merely waiting.
