    ■What Is ULTRASEVEN?

    In 1967, ULTRASEVEN was broadcast following the conclusion of ULTRAMAN.

    In the early days of special effects TV series, the young staff who created ULTRA Q and ULTRAMAN demonstrated their growing talent by producing many acclaimed episodes of ULTRASEVEN.

    Monsters whose home planets were destroyed in an arms race, invaders who shook the trust of the people of Earth, aliens who reined destruction upon Earth, lifeforms that may have lived on Earth long before humans... several episodes are still relevant to modern viewers.

    Throughout the story, Ultraseven fought many aliens, but he, too, was also an alien.

    Like Ultraman, he loved the Earth and mankind. Now that the world is in turmoil, it is time for his return.

    He is an immortal hero, the Ultraman whose name is "Ultraseven".
