Figured we get a discussion thread going for this. I'm a little surprised this appears to be Ribut origin tale, slightly. I'm all for more Ultras, but the character was introduced to a much wider audiance just last year in the previous Ultra Galaxy Fight, for those who don't know he originally seen as part of a Malatsian cg kids show. Upin Ipin. Outside of that it's a good star for this with a lot of call backs to various Ultra shows. Now I'm aware usually there's supposed to be a pic that usually goes with these post, but I posted the english dub of the video for a reason, Kane Kosugi who was the main character in Ultraman the Ultimate hero aka Power voices Power in this, now that's pretty cool

HE CAME TO US FROM A STAR!!!
Yeah, probably the return I was most looking forward to, and the very first episode gives him a big centerpiece battle. I was very happy. The original actor is providing the voice, too!

Funny thing is, I've seen 'Ultraman: Towards The Future' and yet I don't think I ever realized how weird Ultraman Great's "ears" were. :oops:

Edit: Something which I had totally overlooked from the first episode. The "Queen Izana" that briefly appears here uses the suit of the War God from Ultraman Orb The Origin Saga. But that is not the same name as the queen from that show, and the tree of life can still be seen in the background. So we must be further in the past than that.

It's just a small detail but one that shows how much attention they pay, even to a show like this which is pretty much just suit actors in front of green screen.

Okay does Ribut practice the Ultr version of Tai Chi or something? Because I was not epecting that at all. It was good to see Great and Powered in action, granted I have a closer connection of Toward the Future than Ultimate Hero so I was more excited to see Great than I was Powered. And can I say that was a fast three days, I understand there are time constraints but Max was infecyted by the Gudis cells the previous chapter. I was a little surprised that we got Neos and Ultraseven 21 and Cosmos and Justice, who I'm fairly certain was voiced by the actress who played the human version in the third Cosmos movie. On that note I'm trying to figure out if the got a female VA for the english version or not,.

Watched the first episode today and it wasn't bad, but tried to cram way too much in its 11 minute run time. That and it has the same visual problem I had with Ultra Fight Victory in that everything looks way too artificial. I guess I should be happy that the Ultra suits don't look way too bright though.

Funny to see Powered considering I have been watching The Ultimate Hero over the last two weeks.

So is the dub any good?

Episode two wasn't quite as fun. That's probably just because it was putting the spotlight on characters I don't care so much about. Neo's series is 😴, I haven't seen Cosmos at all yet, and the weakest part of Ultraman The Ultimate Hero is probably it's main character, so I can't get that excited for him. Bring back the mad general from 'Towards The Future' and I'll cheer the house down!

Also, when Cosmos turns up 80 mentions hearing about his role in Ultraman Saga. Which puts that movie's events before those of Orb Origin. Then the main Orb series happens before Zero turns up as a regular in Geed...don't mind me, I'm just mapping out the timeline of events over here...
Okay does Ribut practice the Ultr version of Tai Chi or something?
I believe Koichi Sakamoto, who directed this, did an interview where he said Ribut's moves are based on silat, which is popular in Malaysia where the character originally appeared.

Powered's fighting style in this was apparently based on sumo techniques. He's a bit infamous because the fights in his own series featured as little contact with the monsters as possible (they had made the monster suits more detailed than usual, only to discover that they were also very fragile as a result). So for this they've given him a fighting style that involves less striking. 😄

And there's no fun story connected to it, but apparently Great's moves are based on karate.
I was a little surprised that we got Neos and Ultraseven 21 and Cosmos and Justice
Neos' series just had it's 20th anniversary, which is why they put him and Seven 21 in (same with 80 being in it due to it being his 40th anniversary).

Cosmos' 20th anniversary is coming in July, so they're having a slightly early celebration.

Ultraman Great was my introduction to the Ultraman franchise when a film compilation of Ultraman Towards The Future was broadcast on Arabic TV, so it's great to see him in a much bigger role.

Also great to see Justice again, I don't believe he/she ever had a major appearance since the Cosmos Vs Justice movie apart from being one of the Ultras who were involved in the Dark Spark War before the events of Ultraman Ginga.

So the Ribut stuff was just the prologue? That's a little weird but whatever, hopefully this won't be the last we see of Great and Powered in this. So am I the only one surprised that the galaxy Rescuie Force members we;ve seen outside of Ribut, Sora and a previous War God include Andros Melos (pretty sure I got his name wrong, and the good monster from the Geed movie who's name I'm totally blanking on. But hey we can't just keep referencing Oeb now can we? And I'm fairly certain this is the first time we seen Xenon in any type of action and he's a reverse L type when it comes to his finisher. Of course now it looks like we're transitioning into the main part of the story with Absolute Tartarus finally making a move.

And I almost forgot, we got Ultraman Legend, so what are the odd that in a future Ultra Galaxay Fight we see Ultraman Saga?

1. Is Justice a female?
2. What series are Legend and Xenon from?

Anyway, I'm still not sure what to think of this show. Everything seems so rushed due to its short run time, and yet, I kind of wish they would dump the traditional Ultraman format they have been nonstop for the last several years and make a regular show kind of like this. No human characters, just Ultras protecting the universes fighting evil villains. Okay, they can do an occassional human character that is helped, but no Earth stories.

So how many episodes are they planning to do for this? Also, are episodes not being removed after 2 weeks? I saw episode 1 was still up despite episode 3 being out.

So, we've all got Max's theme stuck in our heads for at least the next week, right?

I kinda wish they'd let Max and Xenon go wild without Ribut. It felt like less of a tribute to the old show when they insert a newer character.

Andro Melos popping up at the end was a pleasant surprise. I'd love it if they included more of him in the special.

(Hey, Tsuburaya, maybe after you're done putting Gridman up on your youtube channel you could do Andro Melos? We know it's not part of the Mill Creek deal...)

Just to make things more confusing, there is a completely unrelated character called Ultraman Melos that appeared only in a manga. It was thought that the manga had been made non-canon, but then just this week that Ultraman Z voice drama thing made a reference to it. So both "Melos" characters got a tip of the hat in the same week!
So the Ribut stuff was just the prologue?
Yup. They announced before the show started that it's taking place across multiple times. I believe the latest time is meant to be just before Ultraman Z begins, so it can act as a bit of a lead-in to the current main Ultra show.
And I almost forgot, we got Ultraman Legend, so what are the odd that in a future Ultra Galaxay Fight we see Ultraman Saga?
That would be cool. I really like the Saga suit. But I don't recall Dyna being announced for this season, and they need him in order to fuse into Saga, so I don't think it'll happen this time. 😞
1. Is Justice a female?
2. What series are Legend and Xenon from?
1. Justice is male. He appeared in two of the Cosmos movies. I have not seen them yet, but my understanding is that in his first appearance he was only seen as an Ultra and has a male voice. In his second appearance he took the form of a woman (the director confirmed it's actually him, and not that he's bonded with a partner as some Ultras do). For the rest of that film, Justice retained the actress' voice even when transformed back to an Ultra.

2. They are from different things. Legend is the combined form of Cosmos and Justice. So he's from the same two movies that Justice was in. Xenon is from Max's series, where he was Max's superior officer who appeared in maybe two episodes? It was him that originally delivered the Max Galaxy wrist brace, so it's appropriate that he does it again in this episode.

Funnily enough, the same voice actor provided both Justice's original male voice and the voice of Xenon, but hasn't returned to play either role in this. A new voice actor was hired for Xenon.
The actress who played Justice in that film had a very busy career afterwards, until four years ago when she had a baby and (as far as I can tell) hasn't taken any acting work since then. His voice in this series is provided by Megumi Han, who is also voicing Sora (and previously voiced Pega from Geed and Kyuemon in Ninninger).
So how many episodes are they planning to do for this?
IIRC they said it was 10 episodes, and if it's like last year's Ultra Galaxy Fight then it will be combined into a single 90 minute special for the Japanese DVD release in the new year.

Yes, I'm familiar with Megumi Han as she is the daughter to Keiko Han, who was Luna in the original Sailor Moon series and live action show. I've also gotten to meet both of them.

And now I want to learn more about this Ultimate Ear we saw at the beginning. I also want to see something on Zero from before he tried to take the plasma spark. Personally I always felt Belial and Zero were a lot alike, kinda arrogant about their abilities and self importance, the only real difference between the two being somebody willing to knock them back down. This episode only highlighted that point fo me. Outside of zTarurus involvement that is and I'm assuming we'll see something similar with Treagear. A bit of a slow role given the format but I'm sure things will pick up.

And it's Tregear's turn which isn't surprising. Nice that they made his story different than Belial. So I am curious at where this is going now, I don't think they're going to rewrite history here. Create a couple of foot notes maybe but not rewrite it completely.

So if I'm understanding this right the early style versions of Belial and Treagear are "pararrel isotopes". I'm guessing that's a fancy way of saying they're dublicates and taking yjem out of their usual moment in time didn't affect anything in the time stream. Okay this is getting complicated but I'm looking foreard for more.

A week off and we're back and the meat of the story looks like it's kicking into a higher gear now. We see Jonas, Ribut, Gigilo and Andro Meleos, hey Toku Prime you got your wish, all make their appearance along with the Tri-swuad. So we're going to see this Absolution they keep talking about right?

Episode 7 was way too short. No, I really mean too short because after the opening song and the ending song it was like 8 minutes long, if that.

For the first time ever, three generation of an Ultra family on screen at the same time. Father of Ultra, Mother of Ultra, Taro, and Taiga. Also, the amusing sight of Andro Melos meeting Zoffy again.

Kinda wish the Zetton fight had been longer, but that's just because I love me some Zettons. Zet...ton...

Admittedly I don't really keep up with who's from where were the varios Ultras are concerned but Blu, Rosso and Grigilo are from O-50? I lnew Orb was and Fuma but those three were a new one on me. Putside of that this is thr tram building section of the story. It was good seeing Andros Meleos in action though.
