Mill Creek Entertainment announced that pre-orders for Ultraman Leo‘s North American Blu-ray release are now being accepted on Amazon.com.
Ultraman Leo is the seventh installment in the Ultra Series, airing from 1974 to 1975. The story begins with Ultraman Leo, who comes from the planet L77 of the Leo constellation. After it’s been destroyed, he takes the human form of Gen Otori. Ultraseven appears to fight a new foe, Alien Magma, and his two “pets”, the Giras Brothers. Ultimately, Ultraseven is greatly overpowered and his leg is graphically broken by Black Giras. Ultraman Leo drives off the foes, but Ultraseven is confined to his human form because of his injuries and due to Ultraseven being damaged from a transform attempt. Dan Moroboshi then maintains his role as Captain of MAC (Monster Attacking 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.
The Ultraman Leo’s North American Blu-ray release set will go for $45.99 while the limited edition SteelBook will go for $55.99.
