Trivia

Creator/producer "Eiji Tsuburaya" intended "Ultra Seven" to be the final Ultra Series. It was indeed the last Ultra Series to be supervised by Eiji. But because of the series' success, Tsuburaya Productions started on a story draft in late 1969 titled "Zoku Urutoraman" ("Ultraman Continues"), which was a direct sequel to the original Ultraman: A Special Effects Fantasy Series (1966) (In it, the characters from the original series would return, and Hayata, once again played by "Susumu Kurobe" , would find a successor to the Beta Capsule). But Eiji had passed away early the following year. The proposed story was ultimately reworked into Ultraman Returns (1971), although Tsuburaya was also going to use it again in 1988 (during the then-popular Ultraman boom). See more »

Crazy Credits

This was the first English-dubbed Japanese TV series in Hawaii (in 1975). Produced by Tsuburaya's Hawaii branch, it was dubbed by the Commercial Recording Company in Honolulu, and the voice talent consisted of several students from the Speech Department of the University of Hawaii. See more »

An ultra-cool "Ultra Seven"
15 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Ultra Seven" appears to be the overall best entry in the entire "Ultra" series, which began with "Ultra Q" and achieved massive popularity with "Ultraman." Fan coverage seems to confirm the belief that the third entry in the series, "Ultra Seven," is indeed the best. The stories often focused a lot more on characters and story than previous entries did; they also probed a number of social and ethical issues relevant to contemporary society - not just Japanese society but everywhere, with the overall intent being an introspective examination of who/what we are as a species. The entire "Ultra" series focused on the adventures of alien superheroes saving Earth from all threats, terrestrial and extraterrestrial. This incarnation finds the intergalactic space traveler Ultra Seven assuming the form of an injured mountain climber, and thus becomes the human Dan Moroboshi (Koji Moritsugu), the honorary seventh member of the Terrestrial Defense Force (TDF), which protects Earth from all forms of extraterrestrial menace (and whose ranks include two cast members from "Ultraman"). The focus of any of the various "Ultra" films were the creative kaiju/daikaiju monster designs and showdowns, courtesy of Eiji Tsuburaya (1901-1970) and his company Tsuburaya Productions (which was also behind the hugely popular Showa-era "Godzilla" film series).

Ultra Seven is now my second-favorite Japanese superhero, behind The Guyver.

10/10
