The brilliant Shout! Factory have just announced, having given us superb complete series releases of ULTRA SEVEN and JOHNNY SOKKO AND HIS FLYING ROBOT, that the complete ULTRA Q is coming our way too, scheduled for the thirteenth of August!
““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 toUltraman,Ultra Qis a seminal science-fantasy television series in the monstrous mold ofThe Outer LimitsandThe X Files. As deeply ingrained in Japan’s pop culture asThe Twilight Zoneis in America’s,Ultra Qis available for the first time ever in its entirety on DVD!Eiji Tsuburaya, , the visual effects wizard behindGodzilla,Rodan, andMothra, 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 Qstars Kenji Sahara (Rodan), Hiroko Sakurai (Ultraman) and Yasuhiko Saijo (Son Of Godzilla).”

I personally am ecstatic. An English-friendly ULTRA Q release is an absolute dream, and something I thought I’d never see.
I (almost) hate to keep spamming the ladies and gentlemen of this fine city of Tumblr with my musical ventures, but I spent way too much time to not
yell at the top of my lungstype as hard as I can about it as much as I can!
