There are lots of attractions in the Early Ultra Series.
For example, the characters such as Ultraman, Ultra Seven and Ultra Kaijyu are excellent.
Lots of fans are charmed with the splendid design and modeling.
In the Early Ultra, the character design was done primarily by Toru Narita.
Both Ultraman and Ultra Seven were designed by Narita.
Toru Narita (September 3, 1929 – February 26, 2002) is a designer and sculptor born in Aomori Prefecture.
In spring 1965, he became a contract employee of Tsuburaya Production. And he served as the art director for “Ultra Q”.
For “Ultraman”,” Ultra Seven” and “Mighty Jack” (1968, Fuji TV) he worked on the design of the monsters, regular mechanism and Ultra heroes.
I think the success of Ultra Series owes a great deal to Narita’s work.
Narita participated from the middle of the ultra Q.
