Note 1: Masato Simon is one of the most famous singers in the music history of Japanese Sci-Fi TV Movie series. He sings the Japanese theme song of "Gatchaman" ("Battle of the Planets"), too. "ULTRA 7" has the version which was sung by Masato Simon and this Track 16 was reproduced by our usual method. This is our secret, but of course, this Masato Simon on our CD is fake.
Note 2: It seems that Yahiro-san has some intention in the length of this " Silence ". But of course, this is our secret too.
Note 3: This medley is based on the one which was performed at the Ultraman Symphony Concert in 1992. This is not our secret especially.
Note 4: These Short Parody Dramas are based on the famous scene of ULTRA SEVEN's final Episode. Namely, it is that Dan (Ultra Seven) discloses his secret identity and says good-bye to Anne who is female member of Ultra Guards. And this is our top secret. This Anne on our CD is genuine. (Special Thanks to Yuriko Hishimi !!.)
Note 5: Why Track 20 is " 9 weeks " is completely unclear to me. I think this is probably Yahiro-san's macho joke. This may be our secret, too.
Note 6: About the photograph of the inner booklet, The vehicle (POINTER) of the photograph is not a mini scale model. The owner of this car had a longing for the POINTER : the super machine of Ultra Guards, and as the result, he had completed a 1/1 perfect replica.

By the way, the woman at the side of Dr.BUKIMI is Yriko Hishimi who played ANNE in Ultra Seven.
