As the show enters its seventh season, Tsuburaya’s blog is announcing the newest artist to contribute to the Ultraman Retsuden series, featuring a familiar face.

Thanks in large part to Takamiy, leader of the legendary rock band THE ALFEE, the group will be providing the 6th opening to Ultraman Retsuden. Takamiy contributed to the series before with ULTRA STEEL, the 4th opening for the series and his first solo release earlier this year. THE ALFEE has been around since the 1970s and been Japan’s longest lasting rock group, and one of the most successful, having sold over five million albums. The theme song is expected to start with the upcoming seventh season of Retsuden, which begins airing in January of 2013.
