2nd Logo (1966-1990's?)[]


Kokuei Company (1965)

Logo: We see a black screen, which then gets engulfed by live-action fire. As the fire covers up the whole screen, the same elements from before, but in the color black rises up to the center. The logo follows the Daisan Productions logo.

FX/SFX: The fire, the logo rising up.

Music/Sounds: A low-pitched, menacing theme that sounds like a dark ambient song (even if dark ambient didn't exist at the time).

Availability: Seen on some movies during the 1960's. Example is The Black Snow.

Editor's Note: The whole thing looks very infernal; no doubt that this will scare various people.
