UltraSeven Talk Up!

The series has finally launched on DVD, I just got my own copy, and man I can't wait.

Discuss your journey into this classic series here, if the mods don't object. I figure, with this being a rare official release, it deserved its own thread.

watched first episode, definitely has a different feel to it than Ultraman did... going to watch a couple more episodes to see if I'm going to like it

You should definately watch the Targeted Town with Metron, or The Courageous Battle, or the Dark Zone.

They each give a great look at the series from different points. This is of course ignoring the most obvious two parter to look at, King Joe's introduction.

Yo Burkion, left you a profile message; thought you'd get a laugh out of it.

But yeah, got my set yesterday morning (Well afternoon technically since, I got the mail when I came home)

....I'm digressing and, I am on episode 7 already. The only thing I'm mostly disappointed in is that: [hide]The enemies from episode 3 got destroyed. I was hoping their "We'll be back!" would amount to something but, nope.[/hide] Other than that, been very peachy.

[hide]I don't know if it was intended, but I found that scene pretty funny. You're like "Uh-oh, Seven's going to have to face these two weirdos again in a later episode," but, no -- he flies out, blows 'em up like it's nothing, flies away, episode ends. :laugh:[/hide]

[HIDE]I like to think that Seven does this on purpose some times. He has quite a few enemies that, in any other series, would escape and terrorize him again. They never make it that far when Seven's on duty though, MURDER FOR ALL.[/HIDE]

[hide]Seven will deal with their siblings in the much later 1994 tv specials.

One thing I adore about that two parter.

King Joe was a Zetton level threat, and in any other series, that would have been a huge goddamn deal for the hero. He would have obsessed over it, or commented on how powerful it was, or worried, or even shown the slightest bit of interest that this enemy was stronger, tougher and more powerful than him AND immune to his special attacks.

UltraSeven?

**** that, punch it in the face, then fight it to a stand still for hours.

Seven is hardcore yo.

...that and the drowning of enemies that so much as annoy him.

For the people that own the new DVD, where have you been buying it? Online? I've been looking at different stores in my area and I can't find it.

[hide]I think my favorite part in it is during the start of part 2 when UltraSeven gets up off the ground and pretty much goes:

"Err, my head. That was ....awkward"
*shakes head* "What was I doin--? Oh yeah!!"
"CANNONBALL!!" :laugh:[/hide]

I don't know about its availability in stores. I imagine it'll show up in a few places at some point. I got mine online through Shout! Factory.

Episode 38 is just such a great super hero story, let alone an UltraSeven one.

It may arguably be my favorite episode just for all the elements going into it.

What happens when UltraSeven is seriously injured, pushed against a wall, facing an enemy more powerful than himself AND seemingly invincible, with lives on the line all over the goddamn place?

If this was literally any Kamen Rider, they'd complain about their injuries, talk about how powerful the enemy is, maybe train their way into a new power or find some weakness in the robot.

UltraSeven chooses to be fucking amazing instead.

So is this set actually legit, or is it a "legal bootleg" like the previous Ultraman sets?
I suppose it depends on how you look at it. Shout! Factory licensed UltraSeven through Golden Media Group so it is not directly licensed through Chaiyo. However, Golden Media Group procured UltraSeven through Chaiyo. So, regardless of how you look at it, the ultimate source is Chaiyo. For a more detailed description of all of this, check out kpa's post over at Toho Kingdom from a few months back.

It's not licensed through Tsuburaya, so it will always be a bootleg in some people's eyes.

Because of those idiots in Chaiyo, we won't have an Ultraman revival ever since this pretty much funds their court cases. And seriously, between not seeing the show for a bit longer versus waiting for a far superior set with an adapt/dub to boot, I'd take the latter.
