It happened years ago when they collaborated with a Thai arsehole (who had a forged document of bringing first 6 Ultra series and Jumborg overseas) for his 2 crossover movies
Then, 2 decades later, the whole lawsuit thing happened and the said arsehole fabricated a damn thing that he was involved with the Ultra series and some bs contradicting some official claims (notably about the origin of Ultraman)

Also, he hates Heisei-era Ultra series

He's essentially a grey, yes. But he has some unique features, like the fin on his head that goes down his back, and the red patterns on his body. Can't forget the color timer.
The suit for Hanuman however is pretty much an attempted 3d adaptation of existing traditional art. It's generic in the sense that it probably wouldn't even fly as a unique copywritten character today.

>>
>>17789931
Ignore the other two, I'll answer honestly:

The Netflix Ultraman is good if you can tolerate CG work outside of action scenes but once you get to the action, it's fucking great. As for story, it is fairly standalone story and is well written. Not deep but enough to keep you interested in where it is going.

Having the other Ultras comment on how O-50 operates would be nice, especially the ones who were humans that became Ultras.

I'd want an Ultra who got the power of light from O-50 to stray off to the evil path precisely due to his own uncertainly though to highlight how flawed O-50's shit is.

Is it ever explained why Bemular in the anime used the name of a villain he looks nothing like?

I believe that's a spoiler from what I hear, but it's the first enemy Ultraman ever faced in the series so think of it as a callback.

>>17798661

Evil Tiga also had a change of heart in the Tiga finale, so I’m wondering how he and Juggler (who also has moved on from “wants to destroy the world to spite Gai” to just being a generally smarmy dick) fit into this
>>
>>17798769

Ultraman as Visual Kei
>>
>>17798892
Misaki the host is the one who had a change of heart. Evil Tiga is a different story
>>
>>17789351
I'm waiting for the light from O-50 to reveal itself as some movie villain. Like some self righteous force that makes heartless decisions because it thinks it knows best.
>>
>>17789422

I like it better than R/B, but we’ll see it it beats Geed
>>
>>17789422
I think certain parts of the show are strong. Both the practical effects and CG effects look great for a modern Toku series. I think the individual Ultras are fun archetypes. But I'm never a fan of this format where they constantly allude to an overarching story (Tregear, in this case) without actually progressing with it at all. I'd much rather the show ether be fully episodic, or continually change the stakes and circumstances like Geed.
I also don't particularly like how small the science team stand-in is this time. They are essentially a private company of four people but are given continually more important tasks, comparable to the responsibilities that a large organization you'd see in past Ultraman shows would deal with. It feels like they are trying to have their modest little room of enthusiasts akin to Orb, while still giving them serious tasks that imply large groups are counting on them.
>>
>>17799079

Yeah it feels like they’re trying to do more than what the budget allows in that sense. I wish we had a larger defense team this year.
>>
>>17798972
Evil Tiga was corrupted by the host, though. It's likely that without his influence, he's fine.
>>
>>17799079
I wonder if we’re going to have a final fusion form where Taiga, Titas and Fuma combine into one dude


I mean I can’t imagine we won’t
>>
on a side note what the fuck is with them not painting the back of the sofubi toys anymore
The new characters have cool shoulder pads and color detailing and then you look from the top and the colors just stop right in the middle of the shoulders
I understand it’s a cost saving measure but give me a fucking break
>>
Thinking about getting into ultraman, but don't really have the time to deep dive into franchises anymore. If I was only going to watch one or two series, which two should they be?
>>
>>17800288
I think that's the final form of the season, if I remembered correctly. Trisquad Fusion or something like that.
>>
>>17800531
I would suggest Ultraman Orb since it’s a self-contained story and isn’t a continuation that needs a lot of backstory knowledge, the plot is enjoyable in my opinion, it’s a recent series with good effects and good character, good casting, I like the music, and you can see a lot of the other Ultraman characters and past enemies in the fusions since it’s the 50th year anniversary series.
It suffers a little from the trend of introducing a billion new forms of the main character to sell toys and stuff but you can also look at it as a continuing homage to previous series since he calls on the powers of the previous heroes.
It has good pacing and a lot of unexpected plot twists, the ending is really good too.
plus it’s short, only like 25 episodes so you don’t have to make a big commitment.

for another series, I might get flamed for this but the Ultraman Zero miniseries and movies are immensely entertaining despite not having much in the way of character development. Zero is basically the Duke Nukem of Ultraman.
>>
>>17790763
That is also why Fuma is totally cool when Orb and R/B not giving their power to him.
Fuma doesn't really care.
>>
>>17800531
on the other hand Ultraseven is good if you want to see an old 60’s/70’s series without all the modern flash. That along with Ultraman Leo are two of the darker series, with more moral ambiguity and people genuinely getting hurt.
>>
>>17789931
It’s kind of like reading Garfield minus Garfield
an Ultraman show but ultraman’s not actually in it
>>
>>17800617
>>17800636
Alright then, I'll look into ultraseven as I generally tend to prefer older series when it comes to toku.

Also, I started watching nexus since it's on CR and I'm liking it so far, but I've heard the series got cut short due to ratings. Does it end up suffering a rushed ending because of that?
>>
>>17800292
Yeah, it's annoying. Unless it's a special, larger sofubi, it feels like the sculpts are a lot softer now that they were back when 6 inches or so was the standard size.
Night Fang is a really awesome new kaiju suit, but his sofubi is pathetic and barely evokes his crazy details.
>>
>>17800817
>>17800817
I haven’t really seen Nexus but I seem to recall reading that it did have a rushed ending. It was part of a reboot kind of idea that didn’t really work out, so they ended up going back to the main universe for subsequent series, kind of. Ultraman continuity is a little bit odd because all the different universes can interact with each other because one of the powers of Ultra beings is dimension hopping, so even though nexus is in a different universe and continuity he can jump across timelines and hang out with everybody else.
There’s an English TNT network dub of ultraseven that I guess isn’t too bad, surprisingly, but it cuts out a lot of content, for example in the TNT dub ultraseven beats a certain regenerating monster by beating him with his fists and offscreen the narrator explains that the monster died, which is a little confusing because it was able to regenerate from being blown up and shit. In the original ultraseven actually rips the monster’s wing off and slits its throat with his “eye slugger” blade boomerang weapon, and what makes it more depressing is that the monster was actually the victim of human careless and arrogance because they blew up his planet with a huge nuke to test it but didn’t bother to check if anyone was living there, so the monster lost its planet and got irradiated and came to earth for revenge. It’s a good social commentary series in particular because ultraseven’s human host isn’t a human being like most ultra hosts, he’s literally ultraseven taking a human form, so you see his perspective as an enlightened being on the follies of man.
but at the same time he also becomes aware of humanity’s worth
>>
>>17800834
>tfw have the night fang sofubi literally right in front of me
Well I don’t think it’s that bad considering how complicated the monster was in the show with its eye that pops open and stuff, the smaller monster sofubi are always a compromise like that. My kid really likes this one at least so I guess it’s good enough.
I haven’t seen many of the larger sofubi recently, it might just be because I go to different stores but I don’t recall seeing new big size 2000 yen ones post-Geed.
>>
>>17800834
wow actually I just looked up night fang from the show again to see how he was different and you’re right, they were really lazy with the coloring on the sofubi. The physical sculpting can’t be helped because there are limitations to the shapes that can be cheaply molded but they turned all the purple body scales into a uniform brown.
honestly I don’t think the sofubi looks bad by itself but it’s pretty dull compared to the suit.
I don’t mind if they skimp on the monsters a little bit I wish they would at least color the heroes’ backs properly like they used to and still do for the classic heroes.
But on the other hand, kids don’t seem to mind.
>>
Have been out of touch with Ultraman for a few years. Apperently there was a lot of crossover shit since Ginga?

Basically they had to cram the last story arc into the final episodes. It's unfortunate, but the series is still quite good.

Taiga should start to do his own fighting style.
Otherwise he will forever be Taro 2.0.

He already has his own fighting style in the newer episodes
Basically it involves Taiga charging headlong into the fight and immediately getting his ass kicked, then calling his stronger friends for help and running away, then when his friends gets their asses kicked too Taiga runs back in wearing a different set of clothes and shoots the monster with a lazer beam and kills it

I like it, I was just joking about the fight scenes.
It’s hard to judge a show from the first few episodes but it’s been fun so far.
It’s another one of the funny series instead of the serious ones, but the sunset battle episode with alien nackle was pretty kino
>>
>>17802900
The fights in Ultraman Taro were pretty harsh on the suit.

Anyways earlier Tregear said he was nether good not evil. Which gives me the impression he's aware of something even worse than himself. Probably another latecomer final boss.

Yapool

anyway Tregear’s behavior seems outright malicious, although it’s true we don’t know anything about his motivation.
Presumably Taro and the others know a lot more about him than we do but the show doesn’t bother to tell us.
you may be right though since Juggler initially seemed to be a straight evil character.
It’s still not even clear what exactly he did to Taiga and the others to turn them into their current state, that particle effect is sometimes used lately when characters die but it doesn’t seem like it was a direct attack with straight killing intent.
Hopefully he gets some character development before the end of the series. At the current pace it seems like he’ll probably be around longer than the end of Taiga though, the way they set him up suggests a multi-series arc, since Taiga is his second or third series appearance if you count the time he showed up in the movie theater and intimidated Pega and Booska

So I’m almost finished with Leo after giving it a small break.

Unpopular Opinion Time: The Flying Saucer Arc was not only good, it was necessary to save the show.
Up to Astra’s first appearance, Leo was something special, and one of the best Ultra shows. There were heavy themes of consequence, guilt, and learning from your mistakes. Leo could lose, he could screw up, and he had to frequently remember the weight on his shoulders.
Then the show shifted gears entirely into a Taro-esque weird mishmash of ideas, and all of them came off painful. It wasn’t until episode 38 and 39 came around that it picked back up, re-establishing the more dramatic air from the first batch of episodes.
The Saucer Arc I’d argue explores the core elements of the show. MAC being destroyed just returns the show to the idea that consequences exist, and tragedy can happen anywhere. Leo can’t always save everyone, and he can’t always be there to stop the bad guy, but he can at least fight in their memory. The whole sequence with Silver Bloome was horrifying because it not only set the stage for the final villains, but he now has to step up alone for earth. Now that things changed, Leo has to become more active, and puts all of his experience and training to the test beyond just fighting the monster. It expands on Leo’s character a lot, and shows that his battle against evil forces isn’t simple.
>>
>>17792677
A combination of budget and lazy writing/gimmicks requiring pre-established kaiju.
It’s one of the central reasons I stopped watching the new shows.
>>
>>17805832
I have to disagree. Ultraman isn’t a show about a hero plowing through endless waves of monsters, it’s more like pro wrestling. a lot of fans specifically watch to see their favorite monsters come back and take another shot at Ultraman before he mops the floor with them again. You see the settings change, sometimes it’s a sci-fi setting, sometimes it’s another planet, sometimes they go to another galaxy or another universe but the familiar faces coming back are what makes it Ultraman. Watch the Australian Ultraman series if you don’t believe me, even though Tsuburaya made it the aliens are all completely new and it doesn’t have the same fun familiar feel.
You feel like you’re watching a show with a guy who just happens to look like Ultraman.
The USA production from the same timeframe however was also terrible but it had the Baltan alien, Dada, red king and others to soften the blow, it felt like a crappy 90’s USA x-files/Hercules soft scifi clone but at the same time it was definitely Ultraman.
The ultras are only half of what makes Ultraman Ultraman, the pantheon of monsters built and evolved over more than 50 years is an integral part of the experience.
>>
sorry for double post but also consider that of the three big toku series, Ultraman is the only one where they sell sofubi of the monsters too. And in fact if you look at the store displays there are considerably more monsters than ultra heroes on the rack.
Which would you prefer, something like sentai where they have a dozen faceless puddies, then the monster of the week that is usually just a mishmash of parts on a vague theme, and then one of the three bad guy generals of the season who taunts them and runs away, or would you rather have something like Ultraman where they bring back monsters with backstories and alien species that we’re familiar with, emphasizing that there’s a real universe out there with actual alien species, and usually they give us a new variation on the old enemy and sometimes give us new enemies that are more well-thought-out than sentai’s “glue a bunch of pirate ship accessories into this latex suit and spraypaint everything blue and make him say ARRR a lot”?
>>
>>17805826
I don't know if that's an unpopular opinion desu senpai. Plenty of people disliked the fairy tale episodes and found the Flying Saucer Arc to be a return to form.

This.

Basically, they kaijus and seijins are characters themselves rather than your average mook-of-the-week.

On another note, Tsubu has slowly crawled back up from their financial problems. Seeing that they are using a kaiju from Ultra Q (who, keep in mind, never fought an Ultra before) and another 80's kaiju really shows their budget is getting better now.
>>
>>17806448
Because Ultraman is still about rubber suit rasslin' instead of whatever KR and SS is about now.
I think they are about memes?
>>
>>17805977
Part of the charm of Ultraman was always the variety of monsters, and the thrill of the Ultras facing new challenges and opponents. He’s only “plowing through” monsters when it’s the same ones over and over again, not the opposite.
>>
>>17806439
I always heard the opposite.
>>
>>17805977
Reusing the same monsters kills any stakes. The same ones lose over and over again, taking away any sense of danger or threat, which in turn takes away what characterized many of them like Zetton, King Joe, and Birdon. It hurts their legacy as characters, not helps.

>>
>>17806683
there are no stakes as far as “will Ultraman be killed by the monster” because we know that he won’t. On the other hand they still have stakes in that they can tell stories that may have tragic endings, such as the recent Taiga episode with Hiroyuki’s friend the painter who was actually a nackle alien who had given up assassination and killing after having been beaten by Ultraman Jack, but Tregear manipulates him into challenging Taiga to a duel at sunset and in the end all Hiroyuki can do is scream as he watches Taiga kill his friend the kindly old painter
this is a story that is made better by the reuse of an old character, and lets us know that things that happen in the Ultraman universe can have long-lasting consequences and the world doesn’t reset after every monster of the week
>>
>>17806683
Has Birdon's legacy been hurt that bad? I remember him giving Mebius trouble.
But yeah every time Zetton and King Joe get new variants it seems like the original versions slide closer to mook territory, which is kind of messed up. If you're saying the original Zetton and King Joe are easily dismissed now (Example being Mega Monster Battle), what does that say about the original Ultraman and Ultraseven?

That reminds me, Kemur was used to easily 'teleport' inside of of Jean-Nine, bypassing the mecha's fighting capability completely. Does that mean Kemur could do similar shit to the average Gundam pilot, for example?

>>17803538
>Presumably Taro and the others know a lot more about him than we do but the show doesn’t bother to tell us.
Where the fuck ARE Taro and co.? It's not like they need to find a needle in a haystack, Tregear is back up to shit on that same planet where shit always goes down in their universe.
It's one thing if an Ultraman series simply doesn't have past Ultras show up outside of crossover content (I don't ask why King doesn't just solve everything because he simply doesn't come up often), but this show specifically opens up with Taro actively pursuing Tregear, so it feels like the question is impossible to avoid.
>At the current pace it seems like he’ll probably be around longer than the end of Taiga though
I hope not. It would be pretty damaging to the reputation of Taiga, Titus and Fuma, not being able to stop the villain from doing harm in later series, even when it was 3 vs. 1.

Hypothetical question, /m78/

If there was to be an official look at the Great War the Land of Light waged against Empera, what kind of continuity bridging would you want? Stuff like Reiblood, or even wilder stuff, like explaining things that lack origins, like X’s stuff.
>>
>>17806971
Not to mention this isn't even the first time Tregear has fucked around on earth, considering the r/b movie.
>>
>>17806982
I assume Reiblood's legacy of ruling the universe had to have occurred even further back than Empera's whole thing. It seems like the only thing standing in Reiblood's way was his lifespan and having to find a successor.
>>
>>17806990
When Empera had the duel with Ultra Father, UF is already in charge of shit, so Reiblood has to be a lot earlier than that

More interested in Orb Darkness probably not Aizen but the fact he looks so different from the other Darkness goons has me curious
>>
>>17807051
They didn't reveal which stars and worlds have been destroyed due to Tregear's interference.
With Darkness Heel on the plate I'm sure Tsubu will expand that side of the story further in the coming years.

The problem is I don't really find him interesting enough as is (aka, a complete mystery) to really want to wait that long for his MO and origins.

The story about Planet Terio conducting experiments to find out the consequences after granting someone the power of Ultraman, and the motive behind the revived villains.
Again Terio is also invading other planets at the same time so it will be like they are trying to utilize the human version of the evil Ultras to get their work done.
Something Tregear will be happy to see.
Juggler is the only non-deceased member who works closely with Terio to "guide" the other 4 into doing their stuff.

The show's setting is written, and production is being supervised by Orb, Geed, and R/B's producer Yukinobu Tsuruda.
Live show DVD release has been confirmed.
There will be a sequel.
Artificial Ultraman technology "Terio Spark" has been established, and has been used in taking over other planets.
Zagi continues to wreck worlds and kill more people.
Evil Tiga and Kamila shows how shitty the ancient giants really are.
Belial is looking for a way to return its true form and size.
Juggler has a real plan.

After reading the material from the Japanese wiki, and information from the novel and stage play the setting at O-50 is much more clear now.

Planet O-50 is ruled by their imperial family.
The imperial family will sent their heirs up the mountain to get the power. Usually they will be assasinated by the hitmen from another family.
The imperal army works with the gangs to keep outsiders from reaching the top of the mountain.
Imperial isn't treating its people nicely.
The gangs harrass the local civilians. They use innocents as meat shield to deal with people who are going up the mountain.
Those who wishes to get the power will usually try to stop others from reaching the peak as well.
There are other warriors of O-50. Most of them has a dark past.
Those who failed the test usually ended up joining the local gangs.
Imperial soldier with the power may freely use it in the jobs when they are not assigned to a mission.
O-50 imperial army is at war with other planets.

Prerequisite to be come a warrior of O-50
1) Self-sacrificial.
2) Unsure about the power.
3) Humanoid.
4) Easy to be corrupted or turn to the darkside.

Warrior could be in kaiju form.
Grigio has been granted the crystal of "Ma" by the Ring because she has devilish personality.

The warriors who failed their first mission will be sent off to deal with some final mission level shit. None of them are expected to return.
Orb Ring is given to Gai as a key item to deal with the "final mission" (a.k.a. TV series). Orb Ring's shadow splits from it and becomes the Dark Ring.
