Ultra Q: Dark Fantasy

Ultra Q: Dark Fantasy (ウルトラQ dark fantasy, Urutora Kyū: dāku fantajī) is a 2004 production, and the 17th installment in the Ultra Series that was broadcast in Japan in 2004. It is a remake of Ultra Q, the first of the Ultra Series. It retains the same swirling effect for the title card, but with the words "Dark Fantasy" added underneath, the title also remains black and white. The final episode confirmed this is not a sequel, rather another time line in which the original series is portrayed as a television show.
