New Ultraman Movie Opens Today in Japan
Saturday, September 13, 2008


Captain's Log Stardate -315699.67

Besides the usual Voltes V and Shaider stuffs from Japan, the Ultraman and Magmaman series combination of ABS-CBN remains one of the best loved memories of our childhood years. Most of us wondered if Magmaman and the original Ultraman are related. My cousins and I also used to debate on what's more powerful, Ultraman's Ultra Ray or Magmaman's Fireball.

A few years later, ABS-CBN again aired another Ultraman series, this time it's Ultraman Ace. This one's my personal favorite. This series as far as I can remember, featured the voice of Filipino actor Earl Ignacio as Ultraman Ace's host Hokoto.

Ultraman Mebius & the Ultra Brothers Trailer

A few days ago, I watched a fansub of the Ultraman Mebius and the Ultra Brothers Movie from Andrew. Seeing the original actors portray their respective Ultraman personas gave me goosebumps.

Jack, Ultraman, Mebius, Seven, Ace

The Ultraman Mebius movie features the original Ultraman, Ultraman Seven, Ultraman Jack, and Ultraman Ace. The movie also features 26 year old actress Aiko Ito, who some of you might recognize as Ranru Itsuki aka Abare Yellow in the Super Sentai series Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger (2003)

Ultraman Mebius and the Ultra Brothers was released last September 16th 2006 to celebrate Ultraman's 40th year. And just yesterday, I learned that a new Ultraman movie will be released today in Japan featuring 8 Ultramen. Yes eight (8).

The new movie, Great Decisive Battle! The Super 8 Ultra Brothers, features Ultraman Tiga, Dyna, Gaia, Mebius and the original four (Ultraman, Seven, Jack, and Ace). I wonder how they'll integrate all the Ultramans within the storyline. Tiga, Dyna, and Gaia all came from different realities. Hmmm...
Pop singer Hiroshi Nagano (35), the star of ULTRAMAN TIGA will be reprising his role as Daigo, the human form of Ultraman Tiga, in a new feature film produced by Tsuburaya Productions, which will be released in Japanese cinemas, next fall. Nagano last appeared as Daigo in the 2000 film, ULTRAMAN TIGA: THE FINAL ODYSSEY. The ULTRAMAN TIGA television series first debuted on TBS in 1996 ( the series was briefly aired in the US as part of Fox's "Fox Box" children's line up in 2000, and is now available on DVD from Funimation).

"It's been eight years since Daigo transformed into Tiga," commented Nagano at a recent press conference announcing the new film, "I hope that I will be still able to transform properly for the audience, since it's been so long." Other Ultramen who have returned in their later days to transform again, include the original Ultraman, Susumu Kurobe (67), who appeared in last year's ULTRAMAN MOEBIUS & THE ULTRA BROTHERS, as a senior to the new Ultraman. In the 41 year history of the Ultra Series, the oldest actor to first take the role was 27 year old Yusuke Kirishima, who starred in ULTRAMAN NEXUS (2004).

The new film, entitled DECISIVE BATTLE! THE 8 SUPER ULTRA BROTHERS (Daikessen! Cho Urutora Hachi Urutora Kyodai), as you can guess by the title, will feature eight different Ultramen, but who exactly, besides Ultraman Tiga, are not being revealed at this time. An original Ultra Series alumni, Ultraman movie producer, Kiyoshi Suzuki enthusiastically stated, "In recent years, we have pretty much ignored the mythology of the Heisei Ultras, while we have been concentrating on returning to the Ultra Brothers of the Showa Era. Now, we will bring them both together for the first time."

Anyway, here's the trailer to the new Ultraman 2008 movie.

Ace was also my favorite! When I saw the movie of Mebius and the Ultra Brothers, I remembered my childhood dreams. So I can't wait for the appearance of 8 ultramen!
