The latest in Japan’s Ultraman series will go beyond that nation’s shores to be shown worldwide. Tsuburaya Productions made this announcement during a press conference in Malaysia last week. Ultraman Taiga premiered on television in Japan July 6. Taiga has ties to older Ultraman series, being the son of Ultraman Taro. Here’s the synopsis of the show:
Aliens have been emigrating to Earth secretly, but only a handful knows about this truth. Living in such a society, the main character Hiroyuki Kudo begins working at a private security organization E.G.I.S. (Enterprise of Guard and Investigation Services). The organization takes care of cases related with aliens, and Hiroyuki works day and night to protect peace.
However, there lies a huge secret in him, which he himself is not aware of. He carries Ultraman Taiga’s “particle of light”.
The new story begins as Taiga’s powers revive from Hiroyuki’s body!
Last month Tsuburaya announced that a series of shorts titled Ultra Galaxy Fight: New Generation Heroes, will release worldwide on YouTube. That series will take place between the previous Ultraman series, Ultraman R/B and Ultraman Taiga.
Ultraman Taiga will release worldwide in 2020. The format (TV, streaming, etc) was not specified.
