Mill Creek Entertainment announced that it will release on Blu-ray a brand new restoration of Ultraman: The Complete Series (1966-1967) and Ultra Q The Complete Series (1966-1967).
What’s the story?
ULTRAMAN, a giant alien from the Land of Light in Nebula M78, enters Earth’s atmosphere in pursuit of an escaped space monster. In the skies above Japan he accidentally crashes into a Jet VTOL piloted by Hayata, a member of the Science Special Search Party (SSSP), an international research and defense agency that protects the world from monsters and aliens of all shapes and sizes. To save Hayata, Ultraman merges his life force with the dying human and vows to stay and fight for peace on Earth. Now, whenever the Patrol faces a threat too great for them to handle, Hayata transforms into Ultraman to save the day!
A bit of background
ULTRAMAN was Tsuburaya Productions’ first color series, a sci-fi action adventure drama that dominated the ratings during its initial 1966-67 broadcast run in Japan. The show was quickly licensed for release in America, airing in syndication for nearly two decades. Colorful, fast-paced, and packed with memorable heroes, creatures and incredible special effects, ULTRAMAN was the foundation for a phenomena that continues to this day.
Mill Creek Entertainment’s Ultraman: The Complete Series is available at Amazon.com.
