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.
Originally, "Ultra Seven" was not going to be related to the original Urutoraman: Kûsô tokusatsu shirîzu (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.

I have to say this is the best of the Japanese gender of all time! The bad monsters the cool sunglasses and Ultra 7 the greatest Japanese superhero of all time. Dan Moroboshi puts on these sunglasses and turns into ultra 7 awesome! It goes perfect along with cartoon planet! The best episodes that you have to see are: shrubs from space terror of the lake Island in the sky Brilliant! The show was part of the ultra man series the started with ultra Q you must watch these characters face these odd looking monsters. Every Friday night on TNT and then cartoon planet afterwords. This show was the best of ultra man series said by most critics.
