Compared to what we can recall from memory as youngsters, this new show to land on the franchise promises action-packed scenes and a more reflective plot.
See the trailer here:
The story follows a young teenager named Shinjiro Hayata, who has to bear the burden of protecting the world as he becomes the new Ultraman, which in the past had been his father's job. As an alien force returns to threaten the Earth, it is up to Shinjiro to stop it, but the question stands: is he really of his father's legacy?
Netflix's Ultraman is a Production IG anime adaptation based on the manga of Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi which features the hero of the iconic Tokusatsu series.
