In current Japanese verisons, Episode 12 "Yûsei Yori Ai wo Komete" ("From Another Planet with Love") has been banned since 1970, because the episode offended irradiated survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The episode featured the Spehl Aliens, whose planet was destroyed by radiation, so they come to Earth to extract fresh blood from humans to restore their bodies. The episode was directed by Akio Jissoji, written by Mamoru Sasaki and guest starred Hiroko Sakurai (who played Yuriko Edogawa in "Ultra Q" and Akiko Fuji in "Ultraman"). However, the Hawaiian English version included the episode, as did TPS/Cinar's Canadian English dub, under the title "Crystalized Corpuscles."
TNT aired the episodes in early February of 1994 (as the Cinar version was produced in 1985, but never aired until then), with some of the episodes cut for violence (ie. mostly when Ultra Seven uses his "Eye-Slugger" head-boomerang to hack the weekly monster to pieces). Other episodes miss endings, such as Episode 30, "Trial By War" (Japanese title: "Glory For Whom") and Episode 32, "Sharpshooter Showdown" (Japanese Title: "The Walking Planet").
