Out of all the guys who have a connection to a previous Ultra and are essentially an updated take on their design, who do you think did it best?
>>
>>21455011
Regulus CHAD
>>
>>21455011
Honestly? I'm gonna go with Trigger for the best, and Decker for the worst. Trigger is designed with the idea of how superheroes get their costumes update in modern times and it reflects beautifully here. It kinda reminds me of Superman's Reborn costume and Batman Rebirth suit.

Decker is just Dyna slapped with asymmetrical armor. I would've prefered it if his red and blue are also asymmetrical, and it gets worse when Dynamic ditches it completely.
>>
What form is this gonna give Zero
>>
>>21455011
Regulos looks awful, but I don't care about UGF stuff so I know nothing about him. Of all these designs Geed Primitive is probably my favorite. I think it's the best Ultra design in a very long time, and I don't even give a fuck about Belial.
>>
>>21454428
I just realized that this is to satiate the Mebius and Ultra Brothers thing.

Still feels sad on how 80 still gets ignored. Like really, is the dude ginger or something?
>>
>>21454562
Brightened image
>>
>>21455011
Design-wise: Trigger.

Overall: I haven't watch most of the previous generations here except Tiga, maybe as overall Zero is the best especially the character although I still prefer Trigger's design.

Why aren't they calling her an "Ultra Woman" yet?
Youtube staff error or is it one of those situations where the Ultra is separate from the host?

>>21455011
Regulos. Out of them all, him just being a new disciple in the vain of Leo and Astra feels the most organic. I hate that he doesn’t have his own show, but Trigger and Decker do.
Zero is a straight up bad fanfic character that gets way too much exposure. Geed is the “son” aspect told the best though I didn’t care much for his show. Taiga’s connection to Taro felt like a bad afterthought that wasn’t well handled. Trigger and Decker are just lazy regurgitations.
>>
>>21455213
Justice homage. If you wanna stretch it could also be Cosmos 2: Blue Planet's 20th anniversary since Space Corona Mode also debuted in that movie.

Although Blue planet came out in 2002. Ehh, maybe it's for Final Battle but like I said, pretty stretching it.

It's the usual yearly recap series they air between shows, but this one seems to have an actual overarching plot and new toy so who knows what's going on

>>21455595
Probably gonna give Zero a new form
>>
>>21455011
Don't have any idea about these guys. But i'll go with decker since he got special place in me as my first ultra (besides shin ultra). The bottom right red guy looks sick tho. Regulos is it?

>>21455595
There is a yearly recap series? Damn. First time i heard something like this.
>>
I never got how Z's fusion worked. Z is a rookie who's green as grass. Does the fusion just impart martial arts knowledge onto him for Alpha Edge?
>>
>>21455620
Yeah it gives him the combat knowledge from the Ultras he fuses with.
Hikari basically gave him a DVD player that temporarily beams instructional videos directly into his brain
>>
>>21455011
Zero
>>
>>21455622
An interesting development would be Z slowly remembering bits and pieces of that shit

Wouldn't mind a new Z form that's him after having mastered the fighting styles from the Ultra Medals without having to use them

>>21455645
>>21455654
Actually, scratch that, it'd be cooler if he did it in Original
>>
>>21455619
Yeah, that's Regulos. He got no TV show, but will have his own spin-off series. As for the second one, NTA, the reason there's a yearly recap show is to fill the airing TV slot. So that no other program could take over the slot once the main show is over.
>>
>>21455619
yeah since the yearly shows only run for half of the year, the first half is filled with a recap show, kind of like the recap episodes in decker since you’ve watched that. check it out if you like, they’ll also be available on the youtube channel weekly

My favorite final boss monsters and why
>Zetton: It's fucking obvious why. Nobody really expected this shit.
>Black End: Kinda goofy but the idea that he's just meant to finish Leo off after he's exhausted from the onslaught of the other Saucer Beasts is kind of terrifying.
>Gatanothor: Fucking won pre-series and Tiga barely wins round 2
>Greeza: Foreshadowed/built up to the entire series and makes a hell of an impact when he does finally show up
>Belial: Ends a nearly 8 year long story in a relatively satisfying way.
>Destrudos/Ultroid Zero: A twisted imitation of Z's idol that eventually transforms into a super-monster that Z has no chance against, forcing him to push past all of his limits.
Megalothor: Generally feels straight up overwhelming and outright unbeatable.
>Mother Sphere: See above.
>>
>>21458514
X's colour timer stuck in the ground is a really powerful image imo

Also enemies like Greeza and Zetton and Gatanothor and Mokian (and RDB) who directly do damage to the attack team bases are very competent its terrifying.
>>
>>21458666
Honestly, Z episode 15 only truly works if you watched X prior. Kind of puts into perspective how DRC is basically supposed to be fucking impossible.
>>
>>21458680
I feel like DRC's debut was on the cusp of a really cool thematic resolution for Haruki arc. Like he just went through questioning and being conflicted about his role and actions, and came through accepting the responsibilities of both. From that experience, he's thus able to use a power as destructive and corrupting as Belial without going out of control. That fact that DRC doesn't resemble much of Belial can also narratively tie into this. But it doesn't really play out like that, it's more like "Greeza is a super powerful being, let's go find something that equally as powerful".

There's no noticable reception att because the show was an exclusive to TYO's niche platform (company that bought Tsuburaya in 2007, before they eventually sell it to FIELDS and split it to Bandai) and is a pay-per-view service (which was the first time for Ultra). Its only getting a recognizable reception after the movie came out (and ironically got overshadowed by Zero debut in it lmao).

Movie info from FigureOh

Dinas has a past related to Dyna

Dinas has 5 monster cards such as Zetton. Gagi is a barrier, Bemstar is a space transfer, Zandrias has a strong wind effect, Kelbim's cards can be used for continuous kicks and other techniques.

Alien Ravian has excellent telepathic ability, and can communicate with animals and plants.

Due to the disappearance of the Sphere Barrier, Professor Gibellus, who led an army of aliens, arrives on Earth .It seems that his goal is to use the strong mental power of the Earthlings who defeated the Sphere.
>>

>Due to the disappearance of the Sphere Barrier, Professor Gibellus, who led an army of aliens, arrives on Earth .It seems that his goal is to use the strong mental power of the Earthlings who defeated the Sphere.
they better don't turn the Spheres into some sort of dindu-nuffin villain that was trying to protect Earth from some greater evil the whole time.
>>
>>21459205
No moron. Its an ironic situation. The Earth is now free from the Sphere, but is prone to other alien invasion because there's no longer a barrier. If you want to pull "dindu nuffin", Sphere can already be one since its conception. "Creating a world free of conflict and sadness" was not an evil goal ultimately, "By fusing everything into absolute one" the process is.
>>
>>
>>21459167
>Dinas has a past relation to Dyna.
Given the incompleteness of his look, i bet Dinas is some sort of "prototype" of Decker.

(original source) Dyna -> (influenced by dyna) Dinas -> (complete/upgraded version of dinas) Decker.

Takesue once did a similar thing with Orb Dark back in R/B, so its not really far fetched to theorize this.

That’s interesting, thanks. that explains why it has two seasons and relatively short episode counts for each season

I hope the next UGF will explain the Z Lance Arrow. The TV show never acknowledged why this thing that was sealed on Earth and has the exact same emblem as Z's colour timer. I could see Sakamoto making Z being caught up in some time travelling shenanigans to his Earth's past while fighting Tartarus and subsequently leaving the arrow there upon returning to his own time timeline. Of course this creates a paradox where the arrow is stuck in a time loop unless Hikari was the one who made it and had some other Ultraman carry it to Earth and maybe time dilation of space travel can explain the 30,000 years thing
>>
>>21459490
even Z looks confused at the thing
>>
>>21459490
Nah just leave it as is or at least leave it for a long time (like empera case). Not everything need a direct explanation. Deliberate mystery is not something new to this franchise.

>>21459521
They should at least clarify whether it's a lance or an arrow it can't be both.

It can. It always can. John Bandai's wills.
>>
>>21459533
>it can't be both

>>
>>21459490
The Z thing is just a toyetification. Given it's a modified Slugger Lance and was used to stop Peguila in ancient times, it's pretty clear it's a leftover weapon from Orb back when he first visited Earth (where he actually fought Peguila).

Color809 just dropped a bunch Decker behind the scene production from Figure-Oh
>The beginning of the Decker project was very simple, just like Trigger, but the request given at the beginning was "There's no need to do a sequel to Trigger".
>The above statement means that the worldview of "Decker" can be different from "Trigger" but the setting and equipment of the command room must be used. As long as the two can come out, it’s okay for them to form an Attack Team in parallel world.
>The explanation for why it became a continuous worldview is that, according to the producer, Yusuke Okamoto, there were too few aircraft equipment appearances in previous years, and they were slowly revived through Falcon in the past two years, and if we want to continue to have the defense team appear in 2022, we want to show a higher level of depiction to show the audience a better scene. As Tsuburaya's task this year, I chose the same world view. In the early stage works, I proposed a theme for Decker that was "commemoration of the 10th work of the new generation". I hope to pay tribute to Dyna and think about the direction of the new generation. So I thought about whether to let other Ultraman cameo or something, but we talked about it and got rejected. We decided to go in the direction of commemorating Dyna.
>>
Ultraman Decker, Sphere and Defense Team behind the scenes
>The setting of the Sfia barrier has reference to the real world where masks are disinfected every day after an epidemic.

>Under the same world view, the protagonist Kengo Manaka from "Trigger" must appear. At first, I thought about making Kengo a semi-regular role, but in any case, as the protagonist of the previous series, Kengo would be too eye-catching. In order not to steal the limelight the main protagonist of "Decker", the number of episodes appearing is strictly controlled.
>The barrier is actually designed to create as a reason in order for Trigger not to come to Earth but to fight on Mars.

>Decker's main screenwriter, Toshizo Nemoto is also the screenwriter of the "Episode of Z". "Episode of Z" is stuffed with a lot of Tiga-related tribute elements, but Nemoto wrote and felt the limit of a tribute. Because in a creative environment, if one step is wrong, it may turn the film into a spoof film. But if you don't use Tiga elements, there will be no meaning of making Tiga tribute. So when writing about Decker, Nemoter used another method of paying homage—reserving the reference of specific elements, but at the same time emphasizing the theme of the work, giving people the feeling and atmosphere. That is to say, it pays tribute to Dyna on the outside, but in fact, it does not rely on Dyna's work.

>According to the producer, the two main points when making Decker were: not to create in the direction of the sequel to "Trigger" and to pay homage to "Dyna", but not creatinh a new "Ultraman Dyna". This became the consensus of the Decker planning team.

>In "Trigger", Sakamoto chose a lot of people to highlight the scale of the defense team to show the fun of a group drama. But because there are too many people to focus one by one, the goal in "Decker" is to portray each team member well.

Very cool. Im glad TsuPro is really serious on trying to revive the jet weaponry unit. Hope the new GUTA-Gryphon toy sells well, so that we can see more of it in the future (even better becoming regular again, but that depends on Banjew). The second part here fully shows that they're aware of Trigger's reception, and is really learning from it so they don't repeat the same mistake with Decker. Neat stuff.
>In the early stage works, I proposed a theme for Decker that was "commemoration of the 10th work of the new generation"
>So I thought about whether to let other (new generation) Ultraman makes a cameo or something, but we talked about it and got rejected

Decker behind the scenes about villains and AI
>The big boss is Sphere, but before the main protagonist fights Sphere, protagonist has to fight a strong enemy in front of him.
>In the beginning, the role of the villain was not Agams, but an AI. But it's not Hane2, because the setting of Hane2 was born after this idea. The process of the original conception at the beginning is : GUTS-Select team has AI character to help them cooperate with GUTS-Select team to defeat the enemy in the early stage giant robot is developed AI piloting the giant robot AI betraying the team and started to help Sphere.
>The reason for the AI's betrayal was still undecided at that stage. Maybe it was because AI felt the Sphere was doing the right thing, or maybe it was possessed by Sphere.
>At the beginning, the candidate for the giant robot prototype that Tsuburaya gave was not Deathfacer, but Mountain Gulliver 5 that appeared on episode 42 ""Ephemeral Dream". But it was rejected in the end. Reason is because Mountain Gulliver 5 shape design is more like the giant robot that appeared in the anime, and this is the character that appeared in Dyna's funny episode, in other words, it is equivalent to a spoof character. Then we turned around and decided to look for it again, and decided Deathfacer as the prototype.
>When looking for giant robots for the defense team. The GUTS HAWK piloted by Hane2 has not yet been born. At that time, we just wanted to let the new fighters appear in Decker
>Originally, we wanted Terrafacer to combined with the fighter jet, so that Trafiza could become a huge transformation robot. But because of the transformation it will certainly need CG, and at the same time, it will take time to make high-quality CG. In the end, Terrafacer was decided that it cannot be transformed.
>Then the fighters and robots were separated, and the intransformable Terrafacer, based on Deathfacer, was set.

Behind the scene of Agams
>The role of Agams was decided almost at the last minute (before Nemoto wrote the script for Decker 1-3). The biggest reason is that the above requirements say that there must be a villain. And this villain needs to use special props.
>In the first half, because there are a lot of special props (D-Flash, Dual Swords, Dimension Card) and aircraft (GUTS HAWK) to be displayed, Agams is arranged to appear in the early stage, and the official activities will not be until after 12 episodes. So this character must be a resident character, and must not be very eye-catching.
>Under the above request, the planning team once conceived of letting Tesshin Sakuma from original GUTS-Select to play this role. But it is not acceptable for a character image that clearly shows a villainous atmosphere like Celebro. The villain had to surprise the audience and work behind the scenes.
>But in this way, the villains will become "Sphere + Terrafacer + Agams" and there are a lot of villains and they can't make sense of them. So it was decided to cancel the previously mentioned AI as an enemy plan, and let Agams piloted Terrafacer directly. This is the biggest changing point in the whole works.
>Yuichiro Asakage and Agams (the villain) were actually two different people at the beginning. Dr. Asakage is a character that has existed since the beginning. The prototype is Dr. Iwamoto from the first series, a very pure scientist. At the beginning, We thought that there would be too many people if Professor appeared on the stage, so we planned to not let him appear for a while.
>Then on second thought we thought it would be good to let the Professor be the villain, The Professor who always helps turns out to be a big villain, which will also give people surprise. So Agams and Professor Yuichiro Asakage character were merge together and became one person.

>>Choosing only one person as the villain is actually Takesue experience in filming R/B. In R/B there is two antagonists (Makoto Aizen + Saki Mitsurugi) in the early and late part of the story, but after the filming, Takesue felt that both characters were filmed halfway and incomplete. In Decker, the villain is fixed on Agamss, because Takesue thinks that it is better to focus on fewer characters in group dramas.

Its not a complete lost at least. We still got a new iteration of MT Gulliver, But just stayed exclusive to the stage show for now. Maybe they could bring him into the main show during Blazar-Decker crossover. Would fit Blazar's supposed parallel world setting pretty well too.

Dyna cameo behind the scenes
>The script of Dyna's cameo was the last to be completed in the entire "Decker" series, which was later than the final episode. Because Taguchi's pursuit of details is too strong, the screenwriter of this episode, Takao Nakano feels very tortured when he thinks about it.

>Before filming Decker, Nakano had read the story of "Dyna" many times. However, the monster Nakano chose at the beginning was not Geomos, but the insect monster Shieldron. Because Dyna will give people a very strong baseball impression, the choice of Shieldron is also because Dyna used the Otto pitch in the corresponding episodes.

>But after discussing with Taguchi, the story began to criticize the negative aspects of scientific development. Then Nakano thought "what's the problem Shieldron?" and rejected. Because there is really no way to connect with the story.
DeepL not translating it properly so apologize if this one is a bit confusing

>Then I took this "criticism of the negative side of scientific development" back to Dyna and found the carnivorous monster Daigelun (from Battle! Underground City) that appeared because of the underground development.

>As a result of the selection of DaiGelun, Nakano wrote the script and found that it was too unconvincing for Dyna to travel through time and space to save such a monster. After discussing with director Taguchi again, I felt that Dyna must have something to do with Sphere in order to rescue him, and it was an earth-scale crisis. In the end, after various discussions, it became what it was in the show. The monster also chose Sphere-Geomos, who pays homage to Geomos.

Thoughts about Agams from Main Creative Team : We understand that the logic of his actions is untenable
>Agams battle was "completed instantly" in Nemoto mind. Because his purpose is to bring Sphere from the future to the past, and then Sphere eats the earth, takes himself on the road along the way, and then ends. Making it an suicide act. But the appearance of Decker made his plan that could be completed instantly had to be dragged out. Nemoto thought that Agams was already desperate at this moment, because he was left alone in this world, and possessing only the knowledge that he had as a scientist. Controlled by the will of revenge, Agams also had to change his way of fighting. The creation of Terrafacer in TPU is also an accident. On this basis, Nemoti believes that all actions of Agams belong to taking one step at a time, and do what comes to mind on the spot.

>Junichiro Ashiki thought that Agams was already a lunatic. Therefore, in the eyes of others, it is taken for granted that his thinking and actions have no reason. The Earth that destroyed this world axis, at least on future planet Bazdo will not be connected to the future Earth, and on Laelia will not die either. But I don't know if there is any factual evidence to guarantee this, but Agams is in a state driven by revenge, hating the earth and forcing nonsense.

>Producer Okamoto believes that the real bad is Sphere. Agams actually understands this, but he believed too much in his science and technology and reaching out to the Earthlings led to his homeland being targeted by Sphere and his lover dying before his eyes. Agams wanted to punish his proud past self. But Agams is not trying to change that future he is in, because even if he changing the past, the future world where he came from will not change. What he really wants to do is to create the world where his beloved Laelia can live well, and Even if he can't be with with Laelia in the future, it does not matter, guarding Laelia's life is what he wants to do most. But too much grief, and the loss of a place to go, the revenge for his lover made the whole person abnormal.

>Therefore, the main creative team understands that Agams logic is untenable, but still wants to portray a sad scientist villain who has become crazy because of the loss of his beloved one. In order to show the difference between Agams and other New Gen antagonists.

in nexus, injuries to one form results in the other form having that exact smae injury. just like ultraseven. they carry their own fighting styles and abilities unique to them into the nexus transformation.

That is, in fact, still a host relation anon. Nexus is still the one who hosted their power, and when their "KIZUNA.. NEXAS" are over, so does their permission to access the Ultra. Not even the official deny this. The injury stuff isn't really exclusive to human form either. Max also have unique case with his host, same goes to Decker recently. Unique abilities and fighting style is also something that Decker just did and Kanata is just a host, as far as the official classification goes.

>Zero will get a new form
If he does, it'll probably just be drawn as opposed to an actual suit.
Would be a cool time to bring back pic related
>>
>>21462316
the way you are using host is a meaningless distinction. It bears no resemblenace to the way m78 ultras perform bondings. if nagi transforms into nexus and she's in 100% control and everything that happens to her happens to her body then in every meaningful way she is nexus at that moment. i don't see any actual officail dichotomy or specific definition of host since decker is also just de facto the human even if decker exists on its own and multiple power can have the power. i would not really call decker an example of normal hosts either.
>>
>>21462349
I said Zero, not Z
>>
>>21462362
>meaningless distinction
If the Ultra form didn't fully belong to the transformer, then they're just a human host. The point here isn't whether or not its a "normal hosts", but "still" counted as a host relation. Some have special unique mechanic (again like max), but still shares the same basic rule. The likes of Asuka, Gamu, Musashi, Hikaru, Sho, were still a just human host despite having a full control of the Ultra and reflected damages. Unless you want to go full fanfic and create a third classification as an official fact.
>>
>>21462396
It's always kind of ambiguous which is in control, the Ultra or the host
>>
>>21462399
The ambiguity only floats in the beginning really. As time goes it became clear and clearer who takes the lead in control. You can't just convince anyone that Dyna behavior isn't completely Asuka now.
>>
>>21462399
I think more recent Ultra/host bonds have been far clearer. Like the Tri-Squad just use Hiroyuki as a vehicle. The active Ultra is basically totally in control and Hiroyuki's only real input is swapping Ultras or initiating special attacks. Haruki and Z are kind of the same way.
>>
>>21462246
10 years and New Gen has only had 3 good shows.
>>
>>21462396
ther eis no official fact. the only realy official distinction is dunamist being meant to be their own situation, which is why, you know, they have their own term. human form host dichotomy really just seems to be a anglophone fan distinction when in japanese i only see "human that transforms" or" ultra that transforms" with some like Orb using either phrase alternated without care.

meant to post the brave stuff in the yuusha thread but rookie mistake, whoops

but yeah as for the Uchiyama stuff, easily some of the most beautiful restorations I've seen for a classic manga and especially for a toku manga, the quality on The Ultraman alone is beautiful and it would've made no sense to not share with other anons, enjoy the scans and hopefully we can finally get the uchiyama works translated

Ultraman Zero is indeed Dikeido....
>>
Is it a running gag that Zero keeps crushing Z's hopes of being his apprentice.
>>
>>21462953
It is
I bet the twist is going to be that Zero knows Z has the potential to be stronger than him if Z stops seeing himself as an apprentice
>>
>>21462958
Kind of a dick move on his part if that's not the case though

That’s not really accurate. Z is the weakest newgen by far and doesn’t really have any potential.
>>
>>21462999
i dont see it as a dick move if what that anon suggested is true though. it like Zero wants Z to see himself as someone who is a peer to Zero, not below Zero as a student since Z already passed his final test long ago

He passed it because he exemplified the spirit of not giving up and fighting to the end despite being outclassed in every way.
He can always train more and gain more experience to be stronger with time, but the spirit of not ever giving up despite the odds is part of what an Ultra stands for.

As confirmed by Matsumoto (Kanata actor) himself on twitter today. The voice who speaks to Zero when he received Dimensionizer was actually Decker's own voice. Not "Decker" as in "Asumi Decker", but the real Ultraman himself.

>>21463608
I thought the voice was just Mamoru Miyano
>>
>>21463618
The cool and calm voice gives more Suwabe vibe than Miyano. Bunch of nips also saying this.
>>
>>21463608
Ah shit. No wonder デッカー 声 was trending for a while today. This year chronicle show sure is important fuck.
>>
>>21463608
Hmm so oldman Decker is sort of a host himself, somehow expected. Im more surprised with the real voice turned to be that cool serious type, a huge gap from Kanata & oldman Decker image.
>>
>>21463608
>Not the D Flasher voice
Kinda disappointed but I guess it'll ruin the mood of the series
>>
>>21463608
Okay now it begs the question.
Is the Ultraman named after the human?
or is the human named after the Ultraman?
which is it?
>Dinas is related to Dyna
>looks like incomplete Decker
>Decker is now apparently separate from Decker Asumi
Huh??
>>
>>21463680
The Ultraman named after the human. Just like Dyna. "Dyna" was never been the real name of the Ultra. It was a name given by a human.
>>
>>21463684
Yeah but Dyna isnt a person's name. I guess in the future Decker never hid his identity and everyone just called him Ultraman Decker.
I wonder what Decker's real name if that was the case (if Decker is a natural born ultra with sentience since birth) since we know Dyna is basically an evolved Kazuma
>>
>>21463686
>i guess in the future decker never hid his identity
Its certainly fitting his cocky character. But the point was there are bunch of Ultraman who naturally are just nameless and only given a name by human influence. Gaia for another example.
>>
>>21463633
The voice reminds me of Goblin Slayer's VA more than anything.
>>
>>21463489
This has to be ending soon, right? Just finished The most recent English volume a few days ago and it definitely had final arc vibes to it.

I kinda like the English dub of Ultra Galaxy Fight. Reminds me of watching 4kids Dubs, kinda charming.
>>
so when is this recap show set? After the Destined Crossroads? It has to be after Decker, but I can't see this happening at the same time the Ultras are dealing with the Absolutians
>>
>>21463704
After TDC is obvious because they're already recognize Trigger universe.
>>
>>21463704
I can. The Ultra world is just that messy. There's also the Devil Splinters scattered
>>
>>21463704
Definitely after Decker since it explicitly mentions the future

One of the reasons I like Geed is because Riku is a rather unique protagonist for an Ultra series. He’s not even on a defense team, he’s just a normal guy. First since Nexus to do that kinda thing
