    Soooooo, in case anyone didn't know, July 10th is 'officially' * Ultraman Day, marking the occasion of the first 'preview' live show which preceded the broadcast of the Ultraman television show in 1966 (which itself was premiered technically on the 17th). :D
    * as registered by the Japan Anniversary Association






    (how jealous am I NOT to have been in that crowd?!)

    This year there are a number of events, including a live stream on Twitch (I'll be honest, I don't know what that is, but letting everyone know). Follow the link for more details.

    Yeah it was back in june when they starting simulcasting ultraman Z. Good to bring it up again though as this is really the first time one of the studios has done one of these free simulcasts with english subtitles. Tsuburaya has been absolutely destroying the Toei with western releases lately. This is definitely the best time to be a fan in the west.

    I’ve been joyfully watching the Blu-ray (steelbooks) of Ultra Q, Ultraman, Ultraseven, Return of Ultraman and Ultraman Ace. I’m only up to the midway point with Ultraseven. Doing 2-3 episodes a day and loving it.

    Side note: Each of the Blu-ray Steelbook releases includes digital versions with Spree. Not a great streaming service IMO, but it’s nice to have these at my finger tips on my phone when I’m not near a tv.

    AAAAAHHH IT’S HAPPENING I CAN’T WAIT! Admittedly the SFX are not as impressive as Shin Godzilla but still, Anno will show us the way...

    Yeah that trailer has good energy. I'm hoping the effects are just not finished yet, but they had to show some kaiju shots for the trailer.

    I have a feeling that's the intended style for the effects which I personally love. They have a really fun absurd, toylike quality. Kind of like in the Gantz:O movie. And Ultraman looks like he jumped right out of 1966 and into 2021.

    Excited for this one!

    Well, if I have to accept navy blazers instead of orange jumpers, it's still far more preferable to dealing with taut, black leather in place of colorful spandex.

    I hope the Science Patrol has lots of meetings in conference rooms.

    Man, that Shin Ultra is weirdly androgifoxy, like Grace Jones or Sandra Bernhard.
