Not made for theatrical release, this movie was produced by Rim Publishing (Rimu Shuppan) in conjunction with the 30th Anniversary of the manga/anime series Eitoman (1963), created by Kazumasa Hirai and Jirô Kuwata. It was screened exclusively at Tokyo Dome for live concerts and talk show events, with live pyrotechnics and lasers that were synchronized with the action onscreen. The movie was not a commercial success, and Rim Publishing became bankrupt as a result.
The music in the original Japanese version was composed by American jazz musician Carole King. The American dub completely replaces King's score with a new electronic score by Mike Kennedy.
