Did You Know?


Originally, "Ultra Seven" was not going to be related to the original Ultraman: A Special Effects Fantasy Series (1966) TV series, but was intended as an alternate version. Initially, months before that series ended production, Tsuburaya Productions pitched to Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) an idea for a new sci-fi adventure called "The Ultra Garrison" ("Urutora Keibitai"). The project then evolved into "Ultra Eye" ("Urutora Ai") about Dan Moroboshi, an esper alien from Planet R. He was born to an alien father and a human mother, whom he went to Earth in search for. Upon coming to Earth, Dan joined the Ultra Garrison, and became the driver of the Garrison's Supercar. But unbeknownst to anyone, in times of crisis, Dan transforms into his R-ian form, known on Earth as Redman. Almost identical to Ultra Seven, Redman's Capsule Monsters were to be monsters that were originally from Urutora Q (1965) and "Ultraman" (Red King, Antlar and Peguila). With several changes to the plot (including the hero's homeworld being the Land of Light in the Nebula M78, just like Ultraman), the show began production as "Redman" ("Reddoman"), the same working title that "Ultraman" had used. Casting auditions were held in June. Episodes 3, 2, 6 and 4, in that order, were produced in May of 1967. Just before Episode 1 next began production, the series title was ultimately changed to "Ultra Seven," with Episode 1 being the first to bear that title. All references to Redman in previous episodes were dubbed out. Post-production was completed in September, and the show finally premiered on October 1, 1967, competing with Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot (1967) and Kaijû Ôji (1967), and earning a 30% rating.

Crazy Credits

The Hawaiian English-dubbed version follows the same exact formula as the Japanese version's credits, complete with the same crumbling sand and silhouettes (with the translated "Ultra Seven" theme song), but the show's title (complete once the "crumbling sand" effect was finished) had a black "ULTRA 7 SEVEN" superimposed. Alternately, there was also a growing colorful "pinwheel kaleidoscope" effect, with a ghostly blurred/ distorted "ULTRA SEVEN" finally taking shape once the red "7" darts into place from the camera.

Ultraseven: The best seriate Japanese of the gender !!
27 February 1999 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Very good tv series. The best seriate Japanese of the gender, in my opinion and the best of the "ultraman". The character's transformation in ultraseven for the placement of the "special glasses" is brilliant!
