First things first...I've seen some of the audio comments (English dubbing intercut with Japanese subtitles) made for this release and the one back in 2006. Think of your favorite syndicated show. You know having watched the original that some scenes get cut in syndication. Now, think of Ultraman in that same vein, only it was already in "syndication" when it reached our shores way back. So, when the complete, original episodes are released on DVD, they include original, Japanese-only scenes which WERE NEVER DUBBED IN ENGLISH. However, to be a complete episode, they are still inlcuded.

Now, on with the review. After occasionally catching a Power Ranger show a few years back, I knew that I would need to steer my young son clear of this influence (the kids are always fighting and sarcastic with each other.) Anyway, my comment in seeing the "power" rangers would be, "Ultraman could defeat these guys." My boy became curious as to who I was talking about, and when the Ultraman DVDs were released back in 2006, I was able to show him.

Talk about the memories that this show rekindles. The first time the show's theme song began to play, I got chills. I was immediately taken back to my grandmother's house in rural Pennsylvania (we didn't get Ultraman in Texas in the '70s.) I watched a few episodes with my son and I could still recall some of the details in the story line that I hadn't seen for thirty years. Over time, I have managed to find Ultraman action figures that my son loves, and even a beta capsule that makes the familiar sound.

I bought this latest release because over the three years, nephews have managed to scratch the older DVDs. Now, each one will have their own set for Christmas (hard to beat at this price.

Format: DVD
It is true that if you already have the previous, two box sets, (Volumes 1 and 2), then this full collection is not needed, BUT, if you are an Ultraman fan from way back, then this new collection is well worth having if you don't already own the previous, two volume collections.

I think it is amazing that this set is even available. This is quite enjoyable for me, having seen these episodes on broadcast TV, way back in the 1970s.

This collection is a bit of a labor of love, perhaps more so than it being a major commercial studio release. So, at times it may seem rough around some edges, yet, I say again, it is a wonder that these episodes are even available, and even more complete than they appeared on 1970s TV in the USA, nearly four decades ago.

A lot of creative talent overlaps the Godzilla films of the 1960s and 1970s, so if you like those Godzilla films, then this TV series is pretty similar. It leans to the more kid-friendly aspects of the Godzilla films.

The only thing you should be warned about is to not be confused by the added footage that never appeared on TV in the USA. Imagine if the DVD makers of this set were able to round up all the deleted scenes that were cut from each episode, well, they have! But, instead of putting them on the DVD as a Bonus Feature, separate from each episode, they have done it better by restoring these cut scenes and footage right back into their natural continuity of each episode. Here's the catch: this restored footage was never dubbed into English for TV in the USA, so there is no English dialog recorded. The DVD makers had to just use the original Japanese language audio with English sub-titles for these extra scenes.

I don't mind. It is easy to get used to it, once you understand the situation.

This review is for the Complete Series 4 DVD set released in 2009, not the 6 DVD set released in 2008. Since this is my first Ultraman DVD set, I am not sure if the quality suffers be squeezing all episodes from 6 DVDs to 4 DVDs.

The DVD case is a double-wide DVD case, but there are no spindles/holders. The 4 DVDs are each put in a black paper sleeve and are stacked on top of each other. The sleeves don't move around because they are "held" in place by a square shaped molding on the inside of the DVD case.

I was very surprised by this packaging because I have dozens of DVD television sets and have never seen a set packaged like this. For the price (I paid $10.99 free shipping), I am okay with it, but just be prepared that is a bare-bones budget set.

5 stars for the show, 3 stars for the packaging.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
As someone born shortly after the show finished, I saw the episodes as a child in syndication in Detroit in the late 70's on WXON (TV 20). I have observed various incarnations of the "complete" series both here and on various other web sites, but never at less than $10. When I saw this box set, I knew I had to add it to my order.

My review:

Packaging: The four DVD set comes in a single plastic case, the four DVDs inside are protected from scratches by being further packaged in CD envelopes (I actually like and appreciate this!). The case did arrive to me (all the way in Afghanistan) with a corner cracked (no DVDs were damaged). One hit to Amazon for a crushed box that had no filler inside (popcorn or airbags).

DVDs: The 39 episode series is from the mid-to-late 60's, so I expected very little quality increase from the episodes available on YouTube. I was surprised to find the quality of this set was actually excellent! The main menu features the title song (in Japanese) and a short clip of Ultraman. You can change the available languages from Japanese (default) to English. The final DVD has bonus interviews with the dub & voiceover actors and a nice slideshow of the monsters.

The episodes are shown in their entirety. This means that when certain scenes were clipped in the U.S. dubbed version, they appear in the episode (not dubbed, but in Japanese with English subtitles). This is where some people are not happy with the series. I did not mind it at all, as it happens very infrequently. I do remember, however, that some of the scenes were actually dubbed and I viewed them as a child on TV. I don't know what happened to the dubbed scenes, but I am still happy with the final product.

At less than $10, how can you go wrong? The episodes are all here and now I am interested in seeing the "other" Ultraman series available at Amazon.
