Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Originally broadcast from November 28, 1971-May 21,1972. Some of the production staff of the second half of Silver Kamen were formerly of Tsuburaya Pro. and worked on Ultraseven. The new staff retooled the show to have more Ultra-like elements in an attempt to save it from low ratings. Unfortunately, this retool backfired and the show was cancelled.
