Best of the Ultraman series
5 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This by far is the best produced of the Ultraman series (that's been running for over 45 years in various forms).

The quality of the Ultraman series varied from series to series. First two were supervised by the late Eiji Tsuburaya himself, and the episodes, and the monsters that appeared had high quality to them. After Tsuburaya's death, quality meandered with some episodes being good to great while others were mediocre.

In this series, quality of special effects, and the story came together making it the best Ultraman series that I've seen. This is probably due to the involvement of talented directors like Shusuke Kaneko, and Akio Jissoji.

Many of the episodes pay homage to the characters that became famous in the original Ultraman series like alien from planet Baltan, monster Red King, and Gomorra. Stories pays homage too with Akio Jissoji reprising his famous scene that takes place between the alien from planet Metron and Ultra Seven over the Japanese style dinner table, this time with Ultraman Max in Seven's place. Koji Moritsugu who played Moroboshi Dan, aka Ultra Seven makes cameo appearance as an archaeologist doing the same gesture to put his eye glass on as when he put the Ultra Eye on as Dan. Susumu Kurobe who played Hayata in the original Ultraman series appears as the head of DASH. He cowers when he sees Zetton, the monster that defeated the original Ultraman.

There are so many funny scenes that are noticeable only to the ones who've seen the previous Ultraman series. This combined with the high quality production, makes this series enjoyable to watch even for adults.

By far Ultraman Max is the highest quality Ultraman series made to date, and is a joy to watch.
