Cool New Trailer for Netflix's ULTRAMAN Anime Series
We’ve got a brand new trailer to share with you for Netflix’s upcoming Ultraman anime series! The series is an adaptation of the manga by Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shiguchi, which serves as a sequel to the original 1966 Ultraman series. I love that this is going to be a continuation of the original story, and it looks like it’s going to be great! I also dig the the animation style and design work.
Here’s the synopsis that was released for the series:
“Several years have passed since the events of Ultraman, with the legendary “Giant of Light” now a memory, as it is believed he returned home after fighting the many giant aliens that invaded the Earth. Shin Hayata’s son Shinjiro seems to possess a strange ability, and it is this ability, along with his father’s revelation that he was Ultraman, that leads Shinjiro to battle the new aliens invading the Earth as the new Ultraman.”
Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki are directing the series that will feature music from Kazuma Jinnouchi and Nobuko Toda. The voice cast we know of for now is comprised of Takuya Eguchi, Megumi Han, Ryohei Kimura, and Hideyuki Tanaka.
Ultraman will hit Netflix on April 1, 2019.
