    Default Ultraman 2016: Begins in July

    http://tokusatsunetwork.com/2016/02/16128/

    It's been announced that a new Ultraman show will begin later this year in July, just in time for the 50th anniversary of the original Ultraman series. We don't anything else about it yet though.

    To be fair, we did just get a new Ultra Q series three years ago. But it's just not as popular or merchandise-friendly as Ultraman is.

    ^ yeah, saw one of the pictures posted on Facebook a few hours back and wasn't sure if it was legit. seems like it is! so Orb is Tsuburaya's very own Decade/Gokaiger huh? I hope this new kid will be as great as Ginga S and X were. I did my own research and it seems like they finally ditched the Spark Dolls gimmick.

    The human host is named Gai Kurenai and uses the Ultra Fusion cards in conjugation with the Orb ring to transform. Interesting to note, no defense force toys are listed in the text version of the toy catalog.


    Ultraman Orb and his main forms:



    Specium Zeperion - based on Ultraman and Tiga



    Burn Mite - Based on Mebius and Taro



    Hurricane Slash - Based on Jack and Zero

    wowzers at the amount of info! I really like that Ultraman/Tiga fusion and those horns are seriously too big to represent Taro, c'mon. he looks more like Ultra Father. Ishiguro Hideo is a surprise, but it's good that they decided to go with an older experienced actor rather than another newbie. aaaaand it starts on the day I fly off to Tokyo. I'll still be there on the following Saturday, but man...

    I quite like Orb's design, although the name seems a bit uninspired (then again, so were Ginga and X). That transformation device also looks rather unwieldy. Interesting choice of going with an "older" actor instead of a fresh young face. Gives me some interesting vibes about this show. That, plus no confirmation of a defense force yet gives me a feeling this could be a very different kind of Ultraman series. Here's hoping the staff is announced pretty soon.
