Hoping that TsuPro is warming up for an U40 Ultra protagonist. Imagine the muscles
>>19274586>Tiga 25th anniversary >U40 ultra muscle mass increasing every timeUltraman GIGA TIGAfollowing the U40 name pattern maybe it will be Ultraman Gigatigas human host played by Bernard Ackah
>>19274581why titas has black instead of silver? Because of 'traitor' parents?
>>19274618That's a little extreme. >Hey, kid. Since your dad is a dirty traitor, we are going to roast you.
>>19274618Probably the “official” reason but the real reason is probably that it looks better with the muscles so he’s not a huge lumpy red raspberry. It looks kind of like Andre the Giant’s black wrestling outfit.
>>19274624the U40 traitors literally underwent physical changes due to their severed link with the Ultra mind or however.The black color on Titas helps emphasize that even if you are descended from villains, you are empowered to choose your own destiny.Blood makes the color of your body, but you build it from there, and the shaping of your heart is for you alone.
>>19274635I always wondered how ultras poop
If Trigger will actually use gun, that makes him a first right? I'm pretty use most Ultra just shoot lasers from their hands
What's that one track from Return that goes "BANDABABADAN?" It's been stuck in my head for a week now.
>>19274858Sho/Victory in Ginga S has the Victory Lancer that has a blaster mode when he's in human form and can Ultlance to use King Joe Launcher
>>19274906How could I forget this
I finally got back to watching Ultraman to finish it, I'm about 20 episodes inMan I forgot how great this show is
>>19274859I think it's called a "Wandaba Song". It's kinda a staple in the series , each attack team have their own version of it, including Storage from Z
>>19274957>>19274908Thank you kindly.
Celebro & IF Keychain , both look pretty cool, and glad that a Max kaiju finally getting some love in merchandisehttps://twitter.com/Store_Tokusatsu/status/1349672616173322241?s=19
>>19275180Based on this & the previous keychain set they made, seems like IF is now consider a mascot kaiju for Max
>>19275185he deserves it. IF's ep is one of the best in the franchise
>>19275180Max needs more love in general. Its a great series
>>19275185>>19275622Takashi Miike's toku masterpiece.
>>19275216Now have Bureidopeaking out from behind Shin's other leg and it's perfect
>>19275216I kinda hope Shin isn't this lanky, he looks less like an Ultraman and more like a Malnourished Man.
>>19276008What do you mean?Ultraman is always like that.
>>19276027There is somehing about shin that doesn't seem right. I don't know what. Original ultraman looks normal.
Z OST when?
>>19276142Wait, is this real? I feel like this goes a bit further than parody, but it's Marvel than as the license, not DC right?
>>19274906This power was honestly way too great for a supporting Ultra to be stuck with it. And it was probably a lot easier to produce props for than X's armor.
>>19276294I love Victory's weapons, one of the few blatent toy gimmicks that really works,
Remember the age of Bootleg/Parody Ultras?
>>19276349>caring that the megadrive exists only Ultra otaku could summon up such levels of tisms
>>19276271Probably after the movie.
Takeshi Tsuruno is singing for Zenkaiger
Dyna sings the new sentai OP
>>19276644>>19276647So I guess he's not completely off grid
>>19276650I don't think Toei cares that much about China since they're already making gangbusters in their home country and Sentai can't really expand anymore cause of PR using its stuff so they have nothing to lose at this point.
>>19276008I like it. Makes him look a little more alien, which is something the franchise could use more of.
>>19276863God damn it oopsforgive me ultra bros
>>19276866Bro, this is /m78/
>>19276869its ok, we all make mistakes
>>19276869just be more careful next time
>>19276807They're talking about the whole him rumored to be part of a cult thing.
let's be clear that the initial source of the Happy Science allegations against Tsuruno came from a gossip twitter account, who sourced 5chhttps://twitter.com/takigare3/status/1304711550163234816So yeah, very likely that whole thing was totally bogus.
>>19276935I hope it's false, it's always fun when Dyna shows up and those fuckers are nuts.
>>19277069Imagine a Belial without the fish mouth
>>19276935I mean he literally has a twitter list linked to his account that is exclusively Happy Science content.
So Ishikuro is now a full time Youtuber?He has been streaming games all day already.
>>19276922lol. the happy science stuff won't do shit to his career. its the hong kong one that could actually affect him.
Z san & Mebius ni-san are here
>>19274581How far is the ULTRAMAN manga now? So far the only translated ones i got is up to chapter 70 (the end where Leo and Astra are revealed)
>>19277342happy science is comically China-hate-focused to begin with
New form for zero?
>>19278268That's just Shining wearing the aegis
>>19278268>Tregear and Belial in : Crossarmed Opposites, also starring Zero!
>>19278268This might be the Zero Special Combo from the Ultra Z Riser
>>19278272As if Shining wasn't broken enough.
>>19278830Shining Beyond Ultimate Aegis
I recently started to casually watch Ultraman and holy shit Ultraman Jack is dark. I cant believe they really killed Go's girlfriend and her brother. Also is Go's actor really japanese? He doesnt look japanese.
>>19279116>Also is Go's actor really japanese? He doesnt look japanese.He's definitely a half, don't know if he's ever talked about his heritage but it's seems like one of those things you just smile and nod about
>>19279116>>19279147Jiro Dan's Japanese wiki says he has an English-American father who was in the U.S. Air Force, and died in the Korean War when Dan was 2.
>>19278785Literally cannot unsee
I've heard about Tsuburaya running their suits into the ground but damn.
>>19279424Time for another suit funeral I guess
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdlYRjS9kPcSome Korean movie that straight up just took footage from some Ultra shows is getting a western blu released after years of being lost
>>19279424what the fuck
So how did they cut Daigo in today's episode?
>>19279564The bulk was from episode 3, which was a more Iruma episode anyway
>>19279424Whenever a suit gets this bad they should film a Redman episode and give it a proper sendoff like they did in the 70s.
>>19279413>Z looks good in different forms>But I got the best out of them>Because I am Zero
>>19279616Damn it, now I want Redman to crash one of the Nice commercials and just ruin the mood.
>>19279424Was at a live appearance of Nexus Junis Blue a couple of years ago and it was ripped to hell. The ankle cuffs were in tatters and the knees were cracked all over, the legs had splitting between the blue and silver ornaments. The blue was dirty like the red in this pic too. The kids didn’t seem to mind, except that Nexus isn’t exactly the most popular ultra among kids these days
>>19278178Great is always going to be the Ultra equivalent of a Thin Man to me.
Uploading BD rip of Jack onto the MEGA now. Now if only someone would rip the rest
You guys don't know how excited I am for tomorrow
>>19280176how is ABC so far anyway
So of all the shows you have watched, which kaiju/Seijin would you say are your favorites from each series?>OGZetton, Mephilas, and Baltan>UltrasevenKing Joe and Dinosaur Tank>JackKnackle and Black King>LeoMagma>80Gymaira, Minazma/Plazma>GreatGudis>TigaKilleroid and Gazort>DynaGaigaroid>GaiaBlitz Blotz>NexusNosferuIt’s a bit harder to do with NuGen since there’s a lot of reused enemies, but Enpera is probably my favorite introduced in Max-onwards
>>19280242A huge fan service festival. A good one at that
>>19280262I forgot to add Zoiger to Tiga. Him ripping off his wing was metal.
For the first time in history, Ultra has surpassed Sentai in sales
>>19280267No worry.ShiraP will turn that around in 2021.
>>19280267Can we get thirty three or thirty five episodes now, twenty five ain't enough but fifty is too many.
>>19280284I think 39 is a good number. Like OG Man and Max
>>19280267Source ir link to the document?
>>19280284I’m hoping for new monsters instead.
>>19280267Post domestic report.That one decides the direction for the next Ultraman.
>>19280318lol I don't fucking know. I found this shit on twitter
>>19280267this is not the first time ultra surpassing sentai, twitterfaggot.
>>19280267Imagine being Akira Toriyama.imagine sitting at your breakfast table checking the trade papers and noticing the comic strip you finished drawing 30 years ago is still beating out every other IP in the country combined in terms of yearly revenue.Imagine being able to draw sexy pictures of Bulma whenever you feel like it.His house looks like a dragon ball building, you can find it by searching 鳥山明バードスタジオ on google maps
>>19280295Yes that does seem like a good number.
>>19280267Those numbers are old. It's the 2021.1 report, we should get the 2021.3 report soon. And there's another one between those.
>>19280267holy shit Dragon Ball
>>19279564Fucking Johnny's. Why does the first Heisei Ultraman have to share the same fate as the first Heisei KR?
>>19280491Cope even harder
>>19280404Imagine not a single cent from all of that fiasco going into your pocket
>>19280525I dunno how much dosh he got from the new shit but his royalty payments are supposedly insane.He lives in Kiyosu city across the river from Oda Nobunaga’s castle and apparently the taxes on his royalties are a big part of the city budget. A Japanese person from the local area once told me that he had mentioned offhand in an interview that he was considering retiring and moving somewhere else and when the city government got wind of it they sent a delegation to grovel and beg at his feet until he promised to stay.
>>19280541He should ask them for an island. Then build a Kame House.
>>19280557Stranger stuff happens. At the old 2005 world expo site they have an exact replica of the house from Tottoro, accurate down to the bucket with a hole in the bottom and the contents of the drawers
>>19280495Because he actually has a career outside of Toku.
>>19280635Imagine putting your ego over the joy of children
>>19280649Odagiri maybe but I'm pretty sure Nagano is more than willing to return. Fucking Jojo.
>>19280651He wants his director back and for Rider to have the fangs it had in early Heisei again.
>>19280649Except it's not for the joy of children. It's for the joy of YOU. You're criticizing a man you don't know for having an "ego" because he doesn't work exclusively on things you like, and you're using children as a platitude to disguise it. Either show some candor or fuck off.
>>19280654I don't blame him. Kuuga is just a different thing compare to today's show.
>>19280655I am not criticizing Daigo's actor, but his talent agency, Johnny's. Johnny's is just that kind of agency, even shittier than Stardust and HoriPro. At least Stardust and HoriPro know when to compromise things.
>>19280655homosexual man I’m joking, I don’t even remember what Daigo looks like. I could watch Tiga on Hulu if I wanted to. I don’t give a shit about him really. Furthermore, it’s his agency’s decision and not his own.It’s just ironic how Tiga got his energy from the smiles of children and now it’s like “sorry you can’t show Daigo’s face to the children anymore, he’s too important to waste on them”If you can’t see the black humor in this, either fuck off or fuck off
>>19280267>>19280306>>19280318herehttps://www.bandainamco.co.jp/cgi-bin/releases/index.cgi/file/view/10072?entry_id=6920These reports came out back in November 2020, so they aren't really all that new. Ultra is still behind Sentai in domestic sales.
>>192807084.3 for a half year season is pretty great, damn.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSoD1fcc_Bg&ab_channel=avexFuck, it's been a while. Even my aunt knows V6 and I still remember up till today, her excitement when she went up to me and say "Hey! Hey! Did you know my fave band sang for Ultraman?". So cute.
>>19280778i'll fuck your aunt anon
>>19280793She's old and married, bij.
>>19280651He might be willing but nowadays there's a higher chance of Nagano playing a Kamen Rider than reprising Daigo
>>19280708Why Tsuburaya don't move to China already?
when is Grigio getting ryona'd?
>>19281371For obvious reasons.They wanted to make a Hollywood movie first.
>>19281426With Will Smith.Bizarre.
>>19280050i've got the pocket universe torrents somewhere. i just ordered the taro blurays and a bluray drive, im going to start picking up the others and sharing them in the next month or so
>>19281371You serious? That would be an actual betrayal of Japanese society, also they would rather not have another chiyo scenario, oh and they already shot down Chinese bootlegs
>>19282008>It's actually MelosCALLED IT
Hinting more O-50 Ultras in the future
>>19282097Fuma: Grigio is the idol of the O-50 team.Orb: Not me.R/B: What the fuck are you trying to do to my sister...
Fukuyama really is distracting as Mebius. I know there are always characters that get recasted, but he's really jarring for some reason. Then again, dude only has two voices. Slutty trans/gay character and Lelouch. At least he went with the latter. Good episode over all though. Fuuma being an awkward fanboy was funny.
And Grigio is an idol because...?
>>19282132Because moe and the other Ultrawomen are taken.
Is there anyone who doesn't want a piece of Grigio now
>>19282132Cherry boy Fuma-kun is trying to impress his idol.
>>19282142Pitt Seijin or nothing.
>>19282128He has angry knife cat as well but I'm pretty sure that's not the voice for an Ultraman
>>19282160Tsubu says he is now.
>>19282132All part of the ring of light's plot. Make Grigio into an idol to sew more discord amongst the other female Ultras. Marie and Yulian will get jealous. It'll even draw Justice into the conflict. It's all build up for the next event. Ultra Galaxy Cat Fight.
>>19282132Fuma is like a nerd that's been looking at Grigio as an idol. He's been doing that since the Taiga Voice Drama.
>>19282169He truly is the Narutard of Ultraman
Hey, Mebius didn't even bring up about Z and Ace.
>>19279219Damn, Go had a hard life. Even worse considering he grow in post-war Japan as a half-breed. His sole presence was a constant reminder of the defeat and Japanese people tend to isolate and ignore what they don't like
>Fuma is Kazumin and Grigio is Miitan
>z wanting to work hard to be zero's disciple>Fuma simping grigioWhy are blue ultras so cute?
>>19282230This probably already finished shooting before that episode of Z.
>>19282230Mebius doesn't care about Z because he is a nobody>Brother Seven>Brother Leo>Brother this brother that
>>19282132She's not christmas cake age yet so she can get weeb simps. Next a bunch of Ultra lolis will join her singing idol group.
Ribut's titsJoneus's bulge
I heard Geed is actually Ultraman Harem MC.But Max also is getting a harem
>>19282455how so? other than being a student MC and having evil dad
>>19282158Alien Pitts are all for Girl Love.They, too, want a piece of Grigio's Ultra-cunny>>19282230perhaps he doesn't know about that.it's not necessarily common knowledge.>>19282579I have no idea, I have yet to watch Geed.But it was meme'd here as well.
>>19282595It was meme'd and that was the joke. Geed is no more a pussy magnet than any of the previous protags
>>19282602Z and Max are my first series, so I don't really have a paragon.
every ultraman is bustier than grigio
>>19282605Now that I think about it, most shows since Tiga had a designated "romance" until recently>Daigo - Rena>Asuka - Ryo>Gamu - Atsuko>Fujimiya - that reporter lady, Keiko or what's her face>Musashi - Ayano>Komon - Reiko>Kaito - MizukiMebius is one of the few that didn't have a designated girl on the regular unless you count that girl Abare Yellow played>Hikaru - Misuzu>Daichi - Asuna>Gai - Naomi if he's not still hanged up on NatashaRiku had two, depending on how you look at it, Moa and LaihaRB bros didn't have girls, but got Asahi insteadHiroyuki didn't got shit either but then again, Taiga didn't exactly got anything going for it plot or character wise>Haruki - Yoko
>>19282650No kidding. I already had the impression that Z's timer made him look stacked, but the more Ultras he stands next to, the more stacked he looks.
>>19282677>Moa and LaihaMoa should have ended up with Zena and all those episodes with her learning about his past were a much better romantic set up than her childhoos friends deal with Geed that didn't even go anywhere.
>>19282685Would have been pure pottery considering the real life situation, but alas Geed already ended.
Grigio is still awful. I won't pretend Absolute Conspiracy is anything close to good either way, but Grigio manages to suck out even the cheap fun.
>>19282677>RB bros didn't have girls, but got Asahi insteadIsami got that girl from the Wind Crystal debut
>>19282768AC at least gives Ultras you like a chance to shine, as opposed to shitting on them like Ultra Galaxy The Movie did.
>>19282768I haven't seen her movie, but she's fun. It's cool to have Ultras with different personalities.
>>19282128They'll just retcon Fukuyama as the actual Mebius voice before he met the dead guy who Mebius used the likeness to be Mirai Hibino.
What the fuck was Fuma's deal? Going around blowing up the surrounding area like that. What if there were innocent people trying to climb the O-50 peak around that area?Why didn't he just go straight for the Ring?
>>19282933>What if there were innocent people trying to climb the O-50 peak around that area?Just another environment challenger ordered by the great RING
Mebius' attitude was likeZ: I am Zero's student.Mebius: You are not qualified as Zero's student. Hell you are not even qualified as a notable Ultraman.
Are the Gridman subs the official YouTube Channel uses the same shitty subs from Toku? Are there any better subs out there?
>>19283210yup, same subs
Watching this week's TAC and the Chronicles episode and Iruma can get it
People all think Tron was the first movie to use CGI but Taro's title card is CGI from '73
>>19283277>>19283278That sucks, better than nothing I guess at least.
>>19283315she's such a milf
>>19282933Can you even claim to be trying to get the power of the ring if you can't even survive some retard blowing up the mountain
>>19283408Taro's openingThe logo looks too clean to be a practical effect
>>19283410Captain Iruma’s actress was 36 in 1996 when Tiga started.Currently 61.
https://m.weibo.cn/detail/4594404650391301Zoomed in video on the random Ultra training in the background in today UGF
>>19283603>tfw no 40 meter female giant to kick me in the ribs and accidentally break them all and then ask if I’m ok and I say I am but actually I’m not
>>19274581can't they make the heads a little smaller?shit looks way out of proportion
>>19280242>the series that comes after Z is ABCThose cheeky fuckers...
With Z voice drama & UGF , hope that we'll see more of Mebius in the future. It's so sudden that Tsupro decided to make Mebius somewhat important again after 5 years since his last appearance in Ginga S movieDidn't really care much about his new voice, I kinda like it desu, he still sound young, but more experienced and matured
>>19283668>40 meter female giant to kick me in the ribsanon you will turn into red mist if a giant of light kicks you
>>19284064his new JP voice sounded fine to me.Titas’s voice in the English dub on the other hand was pretty lol but I guess it fits his body.I’m actually kind of surprised at how good the English dub is overall, I have had to deal with “professionally made” English voiceovers made domestically in Japan for corporate stuff and they so often have total random asshole amateurs doing the voiceovers even when the English voice production is done by a certain huge media company.The English voice work for ABC is still uneven in parts but it’s pretty great by domestic production standards.
>>19284075>not realizing that she’ll feel guilty about accidentally killing me and combine her life force with mine to resurrect me and thus I will be sharing a body with her and be inside her when she fightsall according to keikaku
>>19284085Titas' English voice sounds exactly like how I imagine someone who spends 99% of his day bulking and showing off his RIPPLING LIGHT MUSCLES to sound like.
>>19283085He was a little harsher to Zett than I was expecting him to be
>>19284118Considering he goes on to say that Zero will soon become a master when Z can't hear it, it feels more like he knows Z doesn't need encouragement because he has plenty of motivation, he needs discipline.
>>19284118He used to train Taiga. Mebius probably didn't want ANOTHER retard on his hands.
>>19284118Probably because Mebius had to have his seniors bail him out a couple of times as well, notably the Imperializers when they showed up.
>>19284109Yeah, his JP voice is kind of the same in that respect I guess. On the other hand, Titas is probably the most responsible and duty-minded member of tri-squad due to his background, and he doesn’t just work out for personal vanity. But the voice definitely fits.>>19284118>>19284125Well, at least he didn’t beat him with a crutch...
>>19284118Maybe it's just Z being really bad at fighting, like in the voice drama Mebius is pretty chill with Z , so he probably need to be more harsh so Z can learn a lot better But really , after seeing Z being a weakling here and finally defeating Destrudos in his series final, Z has gone so far. Zero is probably right about Haruki, Z is best suited with him, so both of them develop & grow together to become what they are now
>>19284146Seven had to beat it in to Leo that he can't just come to Earth and expect shit to work out.
>>19284142Z doesn't need to because thanks to Hikari, Z has his seniors in medal form to help him out.
>>19284118It’s out of character for Mebius. Mebius himself got his ass kicked plenty of times in his show and needed other Ultras (and even his friends) to help him out. If anyone should understand being a rookie that makes mistakes, it’s him.
>>19284401yeah, but Z most likely goes on an on again about being Zero's disciple all time.
Someone said 80 is the only Showa Ultraman that never lost in his show. Is that true?
>>19284450I guess technically, but he did get his butt whooped a few times until something intervenes.Gimira’s a pretty notable example. 80 was getting beat pretty bad until Lavras distracted Gimira.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1ilAWWMB-NcAnd of course there’s Minazma and Plazma, who were straight up winning until Yulian jumped in. 80 even gave her the “carry on when I die” speech during it because he thought he was done.
Is there anything new/original in the Z/Tiga show that I'll be missing if I skip it?
>>19284166We’ve had this conversation a lot here, but I don’t think Dan was out of character in Leo. “Ultraseven” had a lot of themes that revolves around making hard choices for the greater good, and Dan is very passionate about earth and it’s people. So when the first attack of a new monster period on earth is an alien that just destroyed a planet flooding a major city and breaking his leg, and he finds out that the new Ultra is revenge obsessed, he’s not going to train with kid gloves.
>>19284064Mebius is the only bridge between the old generation and the new generation. Pretty much that. There is no room for him to expand because they have more focus on Hikari instead.
>>19284504Apart from Zero being a proud dork about Z, nothing yet.
>>19284557I’d like to see Mebius become just a total badass. Honestly, I kind of see Mebius as the Luke Skywalker of Ultras.>Starts off as a young inexperienced scrub that makes mistakes that doesn’t always know what he’s doing>Has to be slapped around and taught by his more experienced mentors from time to time>Eventually gets to the point where he grows as a hero, and topples “The Emperor” in some way that makes his name legendI feel like Mebius at this point should be fully realized. The hero that we knew he was going to become with time.
>>19284510They seemed to be pushing Man and Seven to be harsh with the new Ulras during Ace and Taro for some reason. It's especially obvious in Taro when Ace and Jack wanted to fight alongside Taro but Seven and Man forbid them from doing it, saying he needed to prove himself. And he only dropped that when Taro was seemingly killed.
>>19284568Yet Mebius wanted to follow Taro's footstep. Due to the lack of bloodline shit and not having a great background story like 80 he will forever stuck at the academy training newbies that may surpass him and have a much more brighter future.
>>19284568Ultra Galaxy Legends kind of killed any chance of that happening, since in the end he was just a messeger to bring Zero.
>>19282677>Mebius is one of the few that didn't have a designated girl on the regularInstead, Mirai had a total bromance with Ryu
>>19284592Let’s be honest: They made sure to take a giant shit on every Ultra that wasn’t Zero, Leo, or Dyna in that movie.
>>19284581>Yet Mebius wanted to follow Taro's footstep.I don’t understand what that means.
>>19283543imagine her pushing you up against a wall and forcing her tongue down your throat
>>19284166yeah, and nobody liked it. There's a reson Dan in Leo has benn somewhat retconned
>>1928447380 is really underrated
>>19284797It’s a good series. The teacher episodes are honestly some of my favorites in the franchise, just a really great approach to Ultraman in general in a way that distinguishes itself from the others. The retooling gave us some hits and misses, but the action, set pieces, and kaiju are still top notch. Then the last batch of episodes are fantastic, and I still think it has one of the best finales that really captures the show’s spirit.The Mebius episode was an amazing send off to really cap the series in a loving way.
>>19284791>retconnedWe have Leo training Zero under some equally dickish conditions.
>>19284885I'd argue Leo was more fair then Dan ever was. Also Zero was a fucking criminal.
>>19284879what counts as the last batch of eps?
>>19284885Don’t forget how Leo interacted with Mebius.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6KvEwqUvdz8
>>19284919I’m referencing mainly episode 43 to the end.
>>19284925I never liked that ep. Gen's whole thing was despite off the tragidies that happen to him, he alwasy was optimistic and happy. Turning him into a bitter asshole like Dan ruins that for me.
>>19284929He wasn’t a bitter asshole, though. Watch the end where he smiles. That was him preparing Mebius, finding a way to show him that the threat’s only going to get worse, and Leo knows first hand that casualties are a reality to every fight. It was tough love.
>>19284575It was in Leo as well. Man was the first one to fly off the handle and want Astra's blood despite all of them having a fight with a fake version of themselves at some point.
>>19284935That episode honestly only works by making all of the Ultra Brothers utterly retarded. Though I guess in their defense they didn’t really have time to question it, considering planets were about to collide.
>>19284933it still feels out of character
>>19284925Leo: Earth is my 2nd... no Earth is my home. (fuck you M78)
>>19284951A big of part of Leo was always "those we couldn't protect." The passage of time is only going to magnify those feelings which is why he went hard on Mebius, to make sure he didn't have to carry that weight.
>>19284951It really doesn’t. That’s how he was trained, and he’s aware of what’s at stake if an Ultra loses a major fight.Reflect Seijin didn’t just beat Mebius, he humiliated him then walked off laughing. Leo knows that’s a slippery slope and helped him. He shed the stoic fighter persona right at the end, because it wasn’t needed now that Mebius proved he was able to ride to the occasion on his own.
>>19284944It was nice to see King come down just to say "Ya'll are stupid."
Hayata having character would be out of character
>>19284951That whole speech about "Can your tears protect Earth" is literally word for word the same thing Seven told Leo in the first episodes of Leo
>>19285017Who could this be?
>>19285022yeah and NO ONE LIKED IT
>>19285122I liked it. It showed what Leo learned and his approach to heroism. Being sad about a loss won’t fix the loss, only getting ready for the next one. Leo took a lot of L’s in his tenure, and crying and moping wasn’t going to fix anything. He had to buckle down and fight.
>>19285122Says you, you nobody
>>19285122Ultra ratings had been dropping since Ace; there was just too much competition in the Toku market by that point.
>>19285131I’d argue that Mebius is the last time the Showa Ultras’ personalities were properly preserved (aside from the rare exception like Ace in Z). Every Ultra that showed up didn’t feel like a random cameo, it felt like the characters I love coming back in organic ways.
>>19285140Hasn't Taro been consistent over the years?
>>19285087Why is the doggo so angry?
>>19285139Ace dropped 4% from Return. Taro dropped 1,6% from Ace. Leo dropped 7% from Taro.
>>19285162So a dingo ate his baby?
>>19285142Consistently on the sidelines, sure.
>>19283478I thought it was stop-motion animation.
>>19283478>>19285379Japanese Twitter says it’s not CG, but carved metal, probably brass, filmed with a real camera今日はウルトラマンタロウ放送開始日。OPタイトルの金文字は、この時代だから当然CGでは無い。これは金属の削り出し(おそらく真鍮)で文字を成型し実際に撮影したものを背景に合成したモノ。この実存感と質感はどうだ!!https://mobile.twitter.com/arukime01/status/849755091779190784
if you look at the screenshots in the tweet you can see what look like machining marks on the characters, which you wouldn’t really have been able to do in 1973 CG
>>19285390>implying there was 1973 cg
>>19285392Same year as Westworld bruhhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_computer_animation_in_film_and_television
>>19285402so literally not Taro
>>19285413Ask Tsuburaya to retrieve the props for Taro's title card.I'll wait.
>>19285413yes which is why I’m saying it’s absolutely not CG.CG existed in 1973 but it was extremely basic wireframe and raster stuff and it would have been impossible to do the Taro title animation with it.
>>19285389Cher claimed to use a vocoder on "Believe" because she thought admitting to the use of autotune would be embarrassing
>>19285429It lasts 2 seconds at the mostThe 3d model for the stained glass knight in Young Sherlock Holmes took ILM 6 months for a 30 second sequence, a 1 to 2 second sequence would only take a few weeks or 2 months at the most
>>19285422hold your breath while you’re waiting and save us the suffering of your posts
>>19285439>world class leader ILM computers in 1985 and poverty level Japanese computers in 1973 are the sameI would offer to drill a hole through your head but someone has obviously beat me to it
>>19285446Trepanning was, and still is a recommended medical procedure from doctors for certain problems
>>19285449I wholeheartedly recommend it for your problems
>>19285454You were implying I already had it done to me. Do you even remember the things you say or are you typing in some kind of half-asleep blackout rage?
>>19285457However many holes you currently have in your head, you clearly need more
>>19285452Just found something interesting while checking up on the sales date, back in 2017 (and probably even before that) there were no sales data for groupwide/global sales for Ultraman , only local toy salesUltra have gone such drastic change sales wise in less than a decade
>>19285452How the fuck did Nexus do so well in toy sales?
>>19283085>>19284118That translation is wrong though, he didn't say he wasn't qualified he just said that he isn't yet like he was claiming to be in front of Taiga. So he wasn't being harsh, he was just making sure Z wasn't giving everyone misinformation.
>>19285136fuck off, bitch
>>19285398god, Dan in Leo suuuuuucked
>>19285136not really, Dan's actor hated it, the audience at the time hated it, and its one of the reason's why leo flopped hard
>>19285602Is that in an interview somewhere? sounds juicy
>>19285621I remember reading it from multiple ultra based sites
>>19284879I wish it hadn't killed the frsnchise
Kinds sad to think that this UGF miniseries explore more about the M78, U40, O-50 & the personality of the Tri-Squad than the whole series of Taiga
Man I am not feeling Ultraseven at all and I really don't know why. I know it's supposed to be great, but I really struggle to find the desire to keep watching. I might shelf it for a bit and watch a different Ultra for awhile, maybe just skip to Return and come back to Seven later.
>>19285735When there is a human character they will jump straight into the bond between Ultraman and human, and nothing else.Once they are free from having human characters Tsubu can go nuts with any tiny bit of lore and background of their alien characters.
>>19285566What do you mean, he's so kind.
>>19285621Source: Trust me bro
>>19285776The thing about Seven is that it isn’t as consistent as OG, but when it’s good it is really good. But people tend to forget that it’s pretty uneven and focus on the great episodes.
>>19285602What does that have to do with Leo in Mebius?
>>19285779He could have broken his spine but instead went for the shoulder. What a guy.
>>19285825Leo losing one arm in battle is pretty much fucked.
>>19285833This wouldn't have happened if he weren't so bad at being Ultraman Leo.
>>19285837Blame Astra for taking parts of the good genes away from Leo.
>>19285779you know what sucks about that scene? Gen was about to catch the alien. Dan stopped him JUST so he could abuse him some more. Fuck Dan in Leo
>>19285803source, you'e a dumbass
>>19285939Good source with links.
New rumor about Trigger & Z>It's said Taguchi will be the main director for Trigger, after the success of ZNot really something new considering he also directed Orb directly after X>Z is not going to have a movie, instead an extra/special feature in the blu ray box. Tsupro want to focus on Shin Ultraman for 2021 movieI'm really sad if this is true, but I could see why Tsupro is doing this>Trigger will feature a "new" Ultraman Tiga who will be designed by Masayuki GotoMaybe this probably like the AU Kuuga in Decade seriesSo far this is all but rumor, but the source is from Ultra Zero Fight FB who is pretty reliable in rumors, but so far it's still 50/50
>>19280778meanwhile, in Italyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11DY2QlJZag
>>19286130Taguchi coming back is always a positive, I'm fine with no Z movie as I think they need to focus on making each movie a bigger deal then just a series epilogue as for new Tiga that's fine we already have a lot of clones and alt versions going around.
>>19286130Probably got this from 5ch like most Rider/Sentai rumor. Still fun to read
>>19286130Hope the New Tiga's host is Tsubasa Madoka , Daigo's son from the Tiga Gaiden. He already became Tiga in that so they should just continue from there
>>19286247I hope not. Let's shelve the son of Ultra thing for another year
Almost finishing Taro, but I think it's worse than all previous series so far. I like the team not being a bunch of jerks who get angry at people reporting monsters to them, unlike in Ace, but most of the plots feels very dull. It's kind of weird since so much goofy stuff happens, but a lot of it feels oddly grounded in spite of that - the stuff is goofy because it's something you wouldn't associate with giants or taken straight from fairy tales, but it doesn't feel actually imaginative compared to Ace's more out there plots.
>>19285808That's the opposite for me. You pretty much described OG for me. Some amazing episodes sandwiched between really boring ones. Seven first episode isn't great but overall I think it's a lot more consistent than OG.
>>19285481That sounds fishy, yeah. Meanwhile Cosmos with the 65 episodes and 3 movies is much lower.
>>19285776I kindly suggest you to go back to New Gen crap. Ultra is not for you but its retarded distant relative might be.
>>19284797Nope. It's mediocre at best with good SFX. The Taiga of its time.
>>19286373lol, why are you seething??
>>19286373Stop acting the fool, not every series will click with everyone.
>>19286392>>19286407If the most iconic, influential and well regarded series don't click with you while the recent shows that are more like discount Sentai/Rider does. Ultra is not for you. Simple as that.
>>19286382Delta Rise Claw concept art
>>19286443Oops, did't meant to tag that anon
>>19286440and why are you seething? that guy also don't mention nothing about newer stuff. don't be such an autistic anon.
Dan being rough
>>19286503don't mention anything*
>>19286247>>19286289He will be like 30-something right now.
>>19286130I can see Taguchi cast that Koji Kominami guy from his episodes in Kiramager to be the new Ultra protagonist.
>>19286443This is infinitely better
>>19286533Imo the suit version look better , the concept version is cool but I think it's too cluttered & busy looking. The finalize suit looks more naturalBut I gotta say the head looks better in the concept cause it look sharper & more intimidating
>>19286440I’m a huge Ultraman fan, and while I love Seven I acknowledge it had a good number of weak episodes. Is Ultra not for me too?
>>19286599No. You need to like it all because I told you too.
Ultraman Trigger japanese trademark
>>19286541AE and DRC give Z more of a glare than his other forms.
>>19286440You're right. I'll skip all the pre-2010 Ultras and only watch the new stuff. I'll just spend all my time shit posting about how garbage old Ultra is and ruining threads. Thanks for putting me on the right track
>>19286623Maybe this will finally be the first Ultra series in the franchise history. Don't have high hopes though.
>>19286369Because 2003 FY only covers a few months of Cosmos. It aired from July 2001 to September 2002, while FY 2003 goes from April 2002 to March 2003.
>>19286832Yes this will be the first Ultra Series indeed.
>>19286674>>19286623Imagine if Trigger is actually Early Style Tregear from Absolute Conspiracy who manages to course correct by the end of it and this is his redemption story.
>>19287027>it phonetically sounds the same
>>19286130>Z is not going to have a movie, instead an extra/special feature in the blu ray box. Tsupro want to focus on Shin Ultraman for 2021 movieI still feel like it's really weird that they would skip making a movie after Z was a success and why they would need to solely focus on Shin Ultraman when it's being made with Toho and they could easily make more money by having Z in the Spring and Shin in the summer. Hopefully this month's magazine will send some light on what's happening whether Z's getting a movie or not.
>>19287170yeah I don't buy that
>>19287027> Tregear replaces his obsession with Taro by getting a human host
>>19285777The problem is that both Z and Taiga were pushed based on what the characters's relation to the lore was and their respective ultras ended up being non-characters.There's nothing wrong with the ultra not being a character in the show but don't advertise that it is.Really, Z and Taiga should've been a non-host show like Orb or Geed.
>>19287461What, you don't enjoy having all the character development dumped in the cd dramas despite everything prior to the show indicating otherwise? Blasphemy.
>>19287500Probably around March
>>19286526Why does the description change from Z to Father of Ultra in the second sentence?is this a copyediting fuckup or a composite or what?
>>19286557God damnit Annooooooooooooooooo
>>19286623Ultraman Triggered lolololololol
>>19286623>We already got son of BelialSon of Tregear now
>>19287170Is it too late for a spring movie announcement? I think they don't want to compete with Toei releasing a movie in the same month (Sentai Movie in February)
>>19287797retard. ultra movie was never aired in february.
