With the release of an über-affordable Ultraman: The Complete Series DVD collection from Mill Creek in 2009, many of us hoped that it would only be a matter of time before "Ultra Seven," the popular 1967 follow-up to "Ultraman," would also punch its way into the American marketplace. And now, according to August Ragone, author of Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters, this long hoped for collection is finally coming! December 2012 will bring fans the eagerly-awaited release of Ultra Seven: The Complete Series, a six disc collection from Shout! Factory. This striking boxed set will include all 48 episodes* of the Ultra Seven TV series in the original Japanese with English subtitles. Also included with the discs is a 24-page booklet on the making of Ultra Seven written by August Ragone, and a...special surprise bonus?! The release of Ultra Seven is slated for December 11th. Pre-orders can be placed today with the good folks over at Amazon.com($34.99 SRP). So grab a purple crayon, kiddies, scribble this baby down on your 'wishmas' list, and make sure to stay on Santa's good side from now until December 25th. If you can do that, then it's highly likely that Christmas this year will be incredibly mer–ultra.
