SEVEN! SEVEN! SEVEN! - The Complete ULTRASEVEN Series Arrives on Blu-ray on December 10th!

Growing up, ULTRASEVEN was the last of the classic Ultra-series that I saw a few episodes of, so it is with great excitement that I announce Mill Creek's upcoming Blu-ray release of this show! Featuring a new incarnation of everyone's favorite red and silver space giant and his variety of special abilities (like the deadly Eye Slugger, Emerium Ray, Wide Shot, and Ultra Psychic techniques!), this show also introduced us to the "Capsule Monsters," a trio of kaiju that can be called upon to save the day when Ultraseven's human host Dan Moroboshi (Kohji Moritsugu) is incapable of transforming! If any of that fanboy rambling piqued your interest, then please continue onward Vault Dwellers!

Synopsis: In the Age of Interplanetary Wars, Earth is in danger from those who would threaten its very existence. From their massive underground complex near Mt. Fuji the Ultra Guard, an elite unit of the Terrestrial Defense Force, stands vigilant as our decisive first-line of defense. But unbeknownst to his teammates, Dan Moroboshi is secretly an extraterrestrial aiding them in their fight to preserve the future of humanity. Dubbed Ultraseven, he aides the Ultra Guard in fighting back alien hordes that would doom the world to conquest.

A far greater threat emerges, though, as Ultraseven sees the consequences of his power: can he maintain his soul in the face of constant violence, even when that is necessary to protect his newfound friends?
