Every single series, every single movies, all of it!
Which reminds me, if that's the case, then what about these three Ultra Seven episodes (From a Planet With Love, Super Weapon R-1, and Revenge of 300 years)?

I'm not sure about the other two (which I think were removed from circulation after the 2011 earthquake) but I would be very much surprised if "From a Planet with Love" is released, even for a North American release. It's caused too much controversy (unintentionally) and TPC has too much to risk to include it. This is their first opportunity to license all their shows outside of Japan and I don't see them taking any risks to jeopardize it in some way.

I'm sure Super Weapon R-1 will be included. To the best of my knowledge, it was only removed from rotation after Fukushima (Which I find pretty stupid considering the episode preaches AGAINST that very thing), but was still on the Blu-Ray set and everything. Plus, Gyeron returned in Ultraman Geed a few years back. I wouldn't get your hopes up for From Another With Love, but I guess it's not entirely impossible (It did after all get dubbed by Cinar and aired on TNT). But I don't think Revenge of 300 Years will be on there considering it was never even produced.

Yeah, about that, "Revenge of 300 Years" did made that episode but because of that incident, the actress who played Anne told Tsuburaya Productions to never aired that episode, which they all agreed.

Yeah, I don't think that's true (You have to realize the Ultraman Wikia primarily uses Google-translated sources, which can of course get lost in translation somewhat). I guess they STARTED filming it, only to cancel after Hishimi's injury, but I seriously doubt they filmed an entire episode (Effects and all), only to never ever air it.

There WAS a short feature narrated by Yuriko Hishimi that told the episode's plot with some reenacted footage made in the 90s, but that's it.

Agreed. Thankfully the actress didn`t get killed or anything. I can only imagine the incident was probably super traumatic so it`s understandable why the episode would not continue production or just be removed. I think we can do the best by respecting those wishes.

Should some episodes be cut, such as From a Planet With love, I think we should respect the wishes and not get bummed out that the set has some very minor things missing.

Super Weapon R-1 is probably my favorite UltraSeven Episode, other then the one with Narse.

I don't agree at all. No studio has any right to remove an episode from existence after it has aired. It was bullshit when Tsuburaya did it to U7 and it's bullshit now that Fox did it with The Simpsons. If people are offended by the episode, they simply don't have to watch it. It's that easy.

They haven't removed it from existence, they simply don't circulate it themselves, which of course is well within their legal rights. :roll:

TPC actually pulled the episode because Spell-seijin was labeled "Hibaku-seijin" (A-bomb survivor alien) in later merchandise for the series. The objection was over using "hibakusha" (a word describing the group of people who survived the atomic bombing at the end of WWII) to describe an alien monster. As far as I know there was no mass objection to the content of the episode itself, just this branding of the character, but it was enough for TPC to pull the show and avoid using the character ever again.

No they don't.

There was an entire argument over this back in the 80s when Ted Turner wanted to colorize all B&W movies.

Don't watch it. No one is putting a gun to anyone's head telling them they have to watch the episode. Also, there are far darker episodes to Ultra Seven then someone dying from radiation.

People should not have to have their entertainment hijacked because someone got offended.

Now okay, I get pulling it from TV airings 50 years ago due to its subject matter. What I'm talking about is it not being released on DVD or BD despite being 50 years ago.

Yes. That's exactly what happened. The ones who suffered from nuclear radiation poisoning are the ones who are wrong.
