Ultra Q Coming To DVD From Shout Factory August 13th!

From August Ragone / Shout Factory

THE TRUTH CAN FINALLY BE TOLD... Had to keep mum for over a year-and-a-half, but ULTRA Q is coming to DVD in the US from Shout! Factory on August 13th! Eiji Tsuburaya's seminal 28-episode science fantasy series, which spurred the creation of ULTRAMAN, is finally receiving its long-overdue release in North America! As with previous Japanese releases from Shout!, I wrote extensive liner notes on the making of the series, which will *not* be in a booklet this time, but rather on one of the actual discs, itself (which you scroll through to read). This essay contains numerous facts about the development, production, and even the lost English Dubbing, never before published in English! But, it's the fans who make these things happen — so please support these releases from Shout! — if you don't support them with your dollars, the bean counters will be lead to believe there is no market in the US for these films and teleseries! So, order "ULTRA Q: The Complete Series" today!

(More After The Break)





“For the next 30 minutes, your eyes will leave your body and arrive in this strange moment in time…”

In the world of Ultra Q, the very fabric of nature is warped into a state of unbalance, and all manner of strange phenomenon and unearthly creatures threaten the very future of mankind! On the scene are a world-renowned scientist and his young friends — a female photojournalist, an aviator, and his co-pilot — who investigate these supernatural menaces. When sheer military might is futile, the intrepid team comes to the rescue, armed solely with their ingenuity and scientific prowess to quell these malevolent forces and restore the balance of nature.



The precursor to Ultraman, Ultra Q is a seminal science-fantasy television series in the monstrous mold of The Outer Limits and The X Files. As deeply ingrained in Japan’s pop culture as The Twilight Zone is in America’s, Ultra Q is available for the first time ever in its entirety on DVD! Eiji Tsuburaya, , the visual effects wizard behind Godzilla, Rodan, and Mothra, creates a spectacular cavalcade of bizarre beasts and mass mayhem in each and every episode of this wildly popular series. Never before broadcast in North America, Ultra Q stars Kenji Sahara (Rodan), Hiroko Sakurai (Ultraman) and Yasuhiko Saijo (Son Of Godzilla).
