When the world is threatened by alien invaders and giant prehistoric monsters, there is only one agency equipped to handle the situation, The Science Patrol, an ultra-sophisticated police force equipped with high-tech weaponry and spacecrafts. Led by Captain Muramatsu, the team defends the planet from the unknown. Unbeknownst to the team, one of their members, Hayata, has the ability to transform himself into the giant superhero from Nebula M7B, Ultraman, when all their weaponry and skills can't stop their foes!
Created by special effects wizard Eiji Tsuburaya (Godzilla, Mothra), the 1960's television series Ultraman remains one of Japan's most beloved science-fiction exports. Airing between 1966 and 1967 with a total of 39 episodes, the live-action series followed a high-tech police force and their alien superhero Ultraman as they battled to save the Earth from invading aliens and monsters. This collection presents the complete series in original un-cut and re-mastered editions. Special features include English Subtitles, U.S. Opening Credits and interviews with the English dub team of Peter Fernandez, Corrine Orr and the late Earl Hammond (the team that also voiced the English version of Speed Racer).

The episodes don't appear to have been remastered in any way. The audio and video look the same as it did when I was young. The video is scratchy, and at several points there is a low hum in the audio line. You can watch it in Japanese with English Subtitles, or you can turn on the English audio track.
The last disc has a 23 minute interview with the American voice cast. It seems to be recorded with a 1980's handheld camcorder. Shaky and bad quality but it's really nice to see it if you're a fan. The fact that they even added it tells you they cared about the product. It also has the American intro as a separate file. (The intro that plays with each episode is the original version.)
Overall, it's a good purchase and I don't regret buying it. Personally I think the audio/video imperfections make it a little better.
Note: I converted each episode to an MP4 file and loaded them into my Plex Media Server so I can watch them on my TVs, phones, tablets, PCs, and laptops whenever/wherever I want. If you do something like this (or if you backup your discs to ISO files incase they get scratched) it's good to know that the data label for each disc is: ULTRAMAN_DISC1, Disc 2, ULTRAMAN_DISC3, ULTRAMAN_DISC4. The second disc was mislabeled at the factory.
The DVD version is good, the discs are stacked on top of each other though. There are a few cool special features on it and there is both English Language and Japanese with English subtitles.
Overall, I would recommend that you pick this up, it's a fun series and any Japanese monster movie fan will like it.
