Yuzo the Biggest Battle in Tokyo (特撮喜劇 大木勇造 人生最大の決戦,   Tokusatsu Kigeki Ōki Yūzō Jinsei Saidai no Kessen, lit. Special Effects Comedy - Yuzo Oki: The Biggest Battle of a Lifetime) is a 2022 Japanese tokusatsu kaiju comedy film written, directed, and produced by Yoshikazu Ishii.[3] Executive produced by Team Better Tomorrow, the story is centered around the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It premiered at the Kansas City Underground Film Festival on September 23, 2022,[2] with a Japanese theatrical release by Cinemago following on December 9.[1]


In the year 2020, the world is threatened by a new coronavirus. The impact of the virus is not only on health but also on the economy, and Yuzo Oki, who was enjoying his remote life, is easily laid off.

Somehow, he manages to find a new job, but what awaited him was a crazy group of people, including a money-grubbing president, a fitness instructor with no members, a garbage thief who only collects waste, a gambling salesman, and a man who stays inside a stuffed animal. However, after being pushed around by these selfish people, he gets desperate when he is dumped by his girlfriend.

Just then, a lifeform from outer space comes into contact with Yuzo's crazy co-workers and fuses with their madness, creating an explosion of energy that plunges the city into chaos. The only person who can save the city from this crisis is Yuzo. Having been thrown into the depths of disappointment, he now rises to the occasion.[3]
