Hachigatsu wrote:ULTRA SEVEN does have a "Color Timer" of a sort, the Beam Lamp on his forehead. I believe this gimmick was only used twice on the series, IIRC. In those days, no one cared about strict continuity. Originally, ULTRA SEVEN and ULTRAMAN weren't related at all. This changed with Episode 38 & 39 of RETURN OF ULTRAMAN. It didn't matter, because this was long before the advent of home video, and they didn't even believe that there would be re-runs of these shows twenty years down the road. A lot of the mythology also came from the editors of children's magazines during the '60s and '70s, who had carte blanche to write whatever they dreamed up — some of it was eventually absorbed as canon. This is why the later series exist in different universes. ULTRAMAN TIGA and ULTRAMAN DYNA are set in one Universe. ULTRAMAN GAIA, ULTRAMAN MAX and ULTRAMAN NEXUS are each in their own separate universes. ULTRAMAN MEBIUS returns to the '70s Continuity, and this is the universe in Ultraman Zero resides. Now, with the second film in the Ultraman Zero trilogy, BELIAL'S GALACTIC EMPIRE, they've introduced the fact that there are Multiverses, and so the Ultra Beings in those different universes can cross over — thereby allowing Tsuburaya be to team up Ultraman Dyna with Ultraman Zero, etc.
The first time we travel to the Land of Light is in a two-part episode of ULTRAMAN TARO (1973), as well as in a few episodes of ULTRAMAN LEO (1974), and about ten years later in the theatrical feature THE ULTRAMAN STORY. As for the Dual Identity issue in the original series, Hayata was killed and Ultraman possesses his body to keep him alive, and so that he can have a host on Earth. At the end of the series, when they separate, Hayata has no memory after their first meeting (in the US version, they are both aware throughout the series).

Looking forward to the third film in the trilogy, ULTRAMAN SAGA, due to open in Japanese cinemas this coming February — the first Ultraman adventure produced in the miracle of 3-D! http://www.ultramansaga.com/

That could help, too.We (Hi no Tori) plan on doing that, which by the way, we are looking for someone with some audio editing skills. We have the TNT version, which is the best visually/video wise copy I've seen. And we have a cruddy visually Japanese version with Japanese audio. So our plan is to edit on a 'normal' OP sequence with a 'custom' ep title on it and run the TNT video with Japanese audio edited onto it to make it the best possible version and keeping it 'Japanese original' looking as possible also. So if you think you may want to help us with that... that would be super cool. We are on ep09 at the moment, so it won't be long before we're onto 12. If you're interested, just shoot a msg or answer here or whatnot and I can give you some links/video's to play around with.
