Ultraman Leo is the 7th entry in the legendary Ultra franchise. It originally aired on Tokyo Broadcasting System during April 12th, 1974 – March 28th, 1975. It ran for a total of 51 episodes.
The synopsis of Ultraman Leo is as follows:
Ultraman Leo comes from the planet L77 of the Leo constellation, and takes the human form of Gen Ohtori. Ultraseven appears to fight a new foe, Alien Magma and his two “pets”, the Gillas Brothers. Ultimately, Ultraseven is greatly overpowered and his leg is graphically broken by Black Gillas. Ultraman Leo drives off the foes, but Ultraseven is confined to his human form because of his injuries and due to the Ultraseven being damaged when he attempted to transform. Dan Moroboshi then maintains his role as Captain of MAC (Monster Attack Crew). Gen is a gymnastics teacher on the side and joins MAC to defend the Earth. Gen and Dan regularly train together, allowing Ultraman Leo to learn many moves in human form
