Lots more Ultraman series premiering on DVD!



Announced today as part of Ultraman Day! We're getting one a month near the end of this year: Tiga on Oct. 5th, Dyna on Nov. 2nd, and Gaia on Dec. 7th. All three series are 6-disc sets with a $34.99 MSRP and include their specials as well. Dyna and Gaia also include their theatrical movies. These series were produced in standard-def, so there's only so much to be gained if you're holding out for Blu-ray releases there. Hopefully the movies will resurface in HD at some point, though. Due to music issues, Tiga: The Final Odyssey canít be licensed outside of Japan.

These are in addition to the two Ultraman series coming out on September 14th:



Ultraman 80 has an HD remaster that's currently airing on Family Gekijou, and there've been HD masters of The Ultraman for a good, long while (long enough that they may need revisiting). But Mill Creek wasn't supplied those, and they probably won't surface on Blu-ray until there've been releases in Japan, which AFAIK isn't on the radar. So this is the best we can hope for in the immediate future.

Re: Lots more Ultraman series premiering on DVD!

I bought a few of the earlier Ultraman series: Ultraman, Ultra Seven, The Return of Ultraman, Ultraman Ace, Ultraman Taro. I've been meaning to get Ultraman Leo. But I still have to watch all of these and I hesitate to get any more until I learn something about them. Which are the good ones? I prefer the 1960s and '70s series anyway.

Re: Lots more Ultraman series premiering on DVD!

Iím in a similar boat. Iíve bought the Showa-era series through Taro but havenít watched past Return yet.

Of that bunch, Ultra Q is my overall favorite, even though itís more of its own thing and lacks any of the Ultra-folk to come. I love Ultraseven, despite its mostly lackluster aliens. Weirdly, I think the original Ultraman might be my least favorite so far, even though it has the best monsters and my favorite team of monster hunters. I have a feeling Iím going to love it a lot more with a second viewing (if Iím ever able to make that happen!).

I havenít gotten to Ace, Taro, or Leo yet, but the impression I get is that the last two in particular are rough-going.

And Iím almost completely unfamiliar with more modern series, but Iíve heard many, many good things about Tiga.

If you want to check out more Ultraman for free their YouTube channel has a bunch of English dubbed stuff including the recent Ultraman Z (though I think they remove episodes) and the YouTube only minis which are basically every single ultra character fighting together.

also the tokushoutsu channel on Pluto airs Ultraman a lot, usually one old series and one new series at a time.
