The original Ultra Fight was a series of short movies that aired between 1967’s Ultraseven and 1971’s Return of Ultraman. Consisting of digest episodes, and newly filmed episodes, the series both took Tokusatsu clips from the original Ultraman and Ultraseven, as well as filming new fight scenes with the character suits. Both types of episodes featured live commentaries, a signature element reminiscent of professional wrestling. Though decades have passed Ultra Fight debuted, it still has an enthusiastic following. Shin Ultra Fight is a revived version of Ultra Fight, supervised by Shinji Higuchi, the director of Shin Ultraman.
This is the final entry in the Shin Ultra Fight series available on UC.com, but worry not, Shin fans! Shin Ultraman is coming to DVD and Blu-ray later this year. For more coverage on that, stay close to Ultraman Connection.
