Whom were the early Ultra Series intended for?
It is not ony children like me but also for families.
It was the time of dawn when TV sets were spreading in homes.
The living room called “Chanoma”started to have a TV set.
The whole family sit in front of it and watched the programs together.
Without the current apparatus of various kinds, it was a great deal of amusement.
The early Ultra Series were also watched by family members.
And they were intended to be enjoyable for all of them.
There are words and phrases in the drama which should be difficult for children to understand.
But they were not avoided.
The production staff thought fathers, mothers or grandparents watching together with children would teach the meaning to them.
I myself remember I asked my mother watching “Ultraman” together about the meaning of the narration “Solar energy sustaining Ultraman decreases rapidly.”
With this narration, the Color Timer on the chest of Ultraman begins to blink.
The Japanese words used in the narration were too difficult for me to understand.
The narration was kind of stately in a way.
My mother explained the meaning and I understood it.
Drama which the whole family can enjoy.
That was the concept of the early Ultra.
Really good old days, aren’t they?
