    Mill Creek Entertainment is offering SciFi Japan readers a chance to win their new DVD sets of Tsuburaya Productions’ THE ULTRAMAN and ULTRAMAN 80. The sets feature audio of the original Japanese soundtracks with English subtitles. Episode guide booklets are also included.

    THE ULTRAMAN (ザ☆ウルトラマン, Za Urutoraman, 1979-80) is the eighth Ultraman television series and the first Ultraman anime show. The animation was done by Sunrise, the studio that has received international acclaim for their hugely popular MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM franchise. The show's hero, Ultraman Joneus, is a legendary warrior who hails from U40, a Star of Ultra outside of the Land of Light. Joneus made his first live action appearance in the 1979 feature film ULTRAMAN: GREAT MONSTER BATTLE (ウルトラマン怪獣大決戦, Urutoraman Kajū Daikessen) and was most recently seen in the streaming series ULTRA GALAXY FIGHT: THE ABSOLUTE CONSPIRACY (ウルトラギャラクシーファイト 大いなる陰謀, Urutora Gyarakushī Faito Ōinaru Inbō, 2020). This DVD collection includes all 50 episodes.

    The ninth series, ULTRAMAN 80 (ウルトラマン80(エイティ) Urutoraman Eitii, 1980-81) , was the first live action Ultraman show since the end of ULTRAMAN LEO (ウルトラマンレオ Urutoraman Reo) five years before. This 50-episode series follows Takeshi Yamato, a twenty-two- year-old young man who lives a double life. During the daytime, he is a rookie but popular science teacher at a junior high school in Tokyo. But after school and on Sundays he works as a member of the elite UGM (Utility Government Members), an Earth defense organization which tackles difficult situations such as alien invasion and attacks from monsters. When the situation gets out of control, Takeshi transforms into a 50-meter-tall mighty warrior, Ultraman 80 to save the day. 80 is often aided by Yullian, a female Ultra Warriror.

    Both sets will be available from retailers on September 14th for $34.99 each.
