After being mortally wounded in a monster attack, grocery man Seiji Hokuto and medical girl Yuko Minami are revived by (and given two Ultra Rings, with which they unite into) a new Ultra-being, Ultraman Ace.
After being brutally maimed by evil aliens, Dan Moroboshi (Ultra Seven) takes under his wing a fierce young Ultra-like being from L-77, and christens him "Ultraman Leo," to continue his mission to defend the Earth.
The title "Ultra Seven" was originally going to be the title for a proposed sitcom by another company about cavemen, much like The Flintstones (1960). See more »
The 1985 English-dubbed version done in Canada by Turner and Cinar features an entirely new animated opening sequence (along with a new synthesizer soundtrack). After the TPS (Turner Programming Services) logo, there are animated images with the Ultra Garrison logo (spinning around Earth, from which two Ultra Garrison mecha fly), an silhouette of Dan Moroboshi (wearing the sparkling Ultra-Eye glasses, which transform him into Ultra Seven in the show), which transforms into Ultra Seven. After that, there is a burst of light, followed by the "Ultra 7" logo, which is enveloped in black when an animated Ultra Seven flies into the screen. This is then followed by the show's weekly episode title (in yellow text against a black background), right before the episode begins. The same silhouette of Dan Moroboshi is flashed for commercial breaks, and the image of Ultra Seven (after the Dan silhouette is transformed) is featured during the closing credits. See more »
Ultra Seven, bring good memories to me, I liked it more than Ultraman
I loved this TV show "Ultra Seven"(1967-68) when i was a kid, I saw it before knowing Ultraman was the original, but for me Ultra Seven is much better, It was cool, he transformed by wearing a pair of "sunglasses", and he didn't have the time limit that Ultraman had. Unlike Ultraman, Ultraseven can make himself, giant, normal, or miniature in size. And he had a very cool weapon, a very sharp "boomerang-blade" on top of his helmet.
And the stories were very nice written for a show mostly done for kids (writters: do not under estimate kids) and "Gozilla" fans. Some of the shows were very impressive for me,I had to turned off the TV when he made himself miniature and entered in the nose and lungs of a girl to save her life, well I was a kid. The show was filled with good drama, acting, lot of monsters, space gadgets, and cool monster-kicking action. I think they made a remake of Ultra Seven in the late 70's but I'm no sure, I just say it because the second time I saw the show,the stories where the same but it looked different than I remembered (maybe it just the memory of a 6 year old to blame), it does not matter any way.
I think Ultra Seven and Ultraman inspired the Power-Ranger series (not my favorite show), but if you like them do not miss the originals, they are fun to watch.
