July 10th is the official Ultraman Day in Japan! Today, the final episode of ULTRA Q was pre-empted to show the “Birth of Ultraman” TV Special, introducing kids across the country to the Science Patrol, the first Ultra Monsters and of course, Ultraman himself. Check out the special in its entirety here!
Fun fact: In Episode 10 of ULTRASEVEN, the MOTW, Alien Icarus, has flapping bat-like ears. However, if you look really closely, you’ll notice that the ears are manually being flapped by a guy standing behind the suit actor! See for yourself!
