This July 10, 2020, Tsuburaya Productions will be celebrating Ultraman Day with exciting announcements and offers! As the Ultraman franchise continues its quest to become a worldwide phenomenon, this will be an unforgettable holiday for anyone who has ever thrilled to the adventures of the Giants of Light.
On July 10, 1966, one week before the first episode of Ultraman aired on TV, a special promotional event named Ultraman Eve: The Birth of Ultraman was filmed in front of a live audience at Suginami Koukaidou Hall in Tokyo, and broadcast all across Japan. Ultraman, Ultra Kaiju, and members of the Special Science Search Party all appeared on the stage with Eiji Tsuburaya, founder of Tsuburaya Productions and the special effects grandmaster whose creative vision helped create these characters.In memorial of the first introduction of the Giant of Light to public eyes, July 10 is celebrated as the Ultraman Day each year in Japan. With Ultraman’s return to North America and around the world, this year we are celebrating this iconic superhero along with millions of fans across the globe!
Fans can take part in the celebration by visiting Shu.Watch from 10 AM to 2 PM PDT (or 1 PM to 5 PM EDT, please check your local time zone). Also, by visiting the Ultraman Galaxy website you can get additional fan information and purchase exclusive Ultraman Day products at the new Ultraman Galaxy Store, which will launch the same day. Fans in North America can purchase exclusive T-shirts, blankets, towels, and mugs for a limited time. Mill Creek Entertainment, publisher of many English-language Ultraman Blu-rays, will also release the exciting super-collectible Blu-ray, The Birth of Ultraman, which will be available to purchase online on DeepDiscount.com! Don’t forget to come to the ULTRAMAN OFFICIAL YouTube Channel for a special message video from Ultraman.
