Tsuburaya Productions announces ULTRASEVEN IF STORY, To be released this fall


The Legacy of Dan Moroboshi (Kohji Moritsugu) and Ultraseven lives on to this day, 55 Years later we have been celebrating their legacy in countless Ultraman shows and films, but a new concept film will explore a future where what if Ultraseven DIDN’T save the Earth from invaders?

Tsuburaya Productions announced earlier today that they would be releasing a new 7-minute concept film titled Ultraseven IF: The Future 55 Years Ago. Dan Moroboshi travels through time and space, encountering a future where Ultraseven never existed. There was no one to stop the invaders on Earth.


Kohji Moritsugu and Yuriko Hishimi will be reprising their roles. Kohji will portray both Dan Moroboshi and Jiro Satsuma, and Yurijo Hishimi will portray Yuriko Hishimi. In this journey into time and space, Tsuburaya Productions confirmed that Dan and Yurijo’s journey into time and space will be using a form of digital technology described as virtual human. The film is part of Ultraseven’s 55th Anniversary and will be released in the Fall of 2023.

The sun was sinking towards the western horizon, and darkness was approaching the industrial area on the bay shore. A silver wing that flew from nowhere crash-landed on a deserted beachside. It was the Ultra Hawk 1 that crash-landed due to a time paradox created by Alien Pegassa to prevent an accident that occurred 55 years ago.

Earthlings that survived by deciding to destroy Pegassa City that interfered with the Earth’s orbit. An alien that lived in solitude after the city of its species was destroyed.

And Ultraseven, an extraterrestrial who loved and lived on Earth. Each world line intertwines, and after 55 years, a story of the future where they encounter comes around.

In 2023, Dan Moroboshi will come crossing time and space.
