The other day, one of my readers kindly shared the information on the Ultraseven shows held in Hawaii in 1975 in the comment section on this blog.
As the linked articles were so funny and worth seeing while they convey the atmosphere the shows had back then, I hope you will take a look at them and enjoy!
Although I have known that Ultraseven was aired in Hawaii in those days, these articles were such a fun thing.
It was when books with detailed information on the Ultra Series for adults started being published here in Japan in the 1980s that I learnt about the fact though it was just briefly referred to in those books.
While I was a senior high student then, I didn’t imagine at all the Ultra Series would gain this much popularity even outside of Japan (and I’m now running a blog on it in English!) at the time.
The information of one of the books told us that the English version of the Ultraseven theme song was sung by Masato Shimon.
Masato Shimon was a representative singer of Japanese tokusatsu and amime TV shows in the 1970s, and he’s known to have sung the theme song of Kamen Rider, tokusatsu hero series that have been so popular along with the Ulraman Series.
And, excitingly enough. one of the articles mentioned above shows him on the stage of an Ultraseven show!
Last but not least, I always appreciate comments from readers that let me know what I have never known or seen.
Many thanks to you all!!!
