This is getting out of hand already
>>
>>15450613
from the scans, it seems Zero Beyond uses the capsules; one that houses Ultraman X and Victory while the other houses Ultraman Ginga and Orb, so Zero gains the powers of the 4 ultra that came after him in the series.

It says the kit comes with the 2 special capsules.
Ultra Zero Eye Neo will give the voice of Zero.
For Ultraman Zero Beyond it needs to set the Zero Eye Neo in Xead Riser first, then scan the 2 special capsules.
>>
>>15450424
Only nostalgic manchildren follow Ultraman these days and Bandai has Tsuburaya from the balls. It can't be helped. I was hoping Shin Godzilla would give some mainstream attention to kaijus but apparently I was wrong.

Is it really necessary for the power of older Ultras to be in every new series now?

>ultraman
>doing something new

It has been this way for a while. Ginga>x had spark dolls, x>orb both had cards and orb>xead have fusions.
>>
>>15450995
Apparently. But the alternative of ultraman [motif], like rider or sentai does is not that appealing either.
>>
>>15450995
In a word, yes. Tsuburaya is in an awkward position of catering to both the older fans (so that the series doesn't die) and newer ones (so that there is SOMETHING to buy and justify sales).
>>
>>15450995
Yes. Kids like to wear everything on themselves.
Put Ultra Zero Eye Neo the face, right hand with Geed Claw, left hand with Geed Riser, waist with Ultra Capsule belt with holder.
Fully armed ultra fan.
>>
>>15450999
It's more economical to have a toy line that last two years. Bandai have figured out to overlap the motifs. I have to give them credit, it's a great idea. I am convinced the 2018 series will be produced with Western distribution in mind.
>>
>Three way conflict between Xead, Belial, and the Ultra Garrison
Xead vs. Zero Beyond when
>>
>>15451025
Only the spark dolls lasted more. The others have similar concepts but arent the literal same toyline.
>>
>>15451012
Ultraman has the advantage of being able to use more abstract motifs due to being aliens, while sentai is stuck with vehicles and animals and riders need something to match the collectibles.
>>
>>15451083
It's not really an "advantage" though. They're continuously going back to "Ultraman with Ultraman powers" now because they don't want to give them random motifs like Rider or Super Sentai get.

i guess something like that would really anger a large part of the older fanbase for Ultraman too, which is likely something they want to avoid in the franchise's weakened state.
>>
>>15451083
>>15451090
Is it really a theme or motif though? It's really the same idea of beings of light, whether ayys or ancient humans or will of Earth or whatever Cosmos is supposed to be
The most I can call is gimmicks. With Tiga we started multiple forms, and with Ginga (or really Monster Galaxy) we started collectibles. X's armor ended up being a moot point. He used Eleking like and Zetton like what, twice?
Besides, the rubber suit rassling ending in a light show is still there. It's just the transformation devices getting more and more fancy.
>>
>>15451043
Ginga through X used IR scanner, Orb and Xead used NFC. X and Orb both use cards. There's an overlap.
>>
>>15451121
You're just repeating what I literally said.
The cards arent the same ones. Xead doesnt even have cards.

>>15451083
Yeah, but they dont do abstract motifs either, they just shill previous ultra and monsters.
>>
80's swimmer's cap manages to look sillier than Taro's horns, but damn, he uas some of tye best fights in the series.
>>
>>15451173
>You're just repeating what I literally said.
>The cards arent the same ones. Xead doesnt even have cards.
I'm sorry, I don't how to explain it any better.
It doesn't matter that the cards aren't the same. They use two different technologies, they couldn't be the same. "Cards with the powers of ultras and kaiju" is the motif that carried over. "Two ultras combining" is the shared motif between Orb and Xead.
>>
>>15450644
Wait, for that blacked out monster fusion. do I spot a Zogu silhouette?
>>
>>15451231
I love 80's design
>>
I really like Geed's Base design. It just works for me.
>>
>>15451353
It's edgy, well, pointy, but still circular enough to be baseline Ultraman
>>
>>15451355
I mainly like the color scheme
>>
>>15451367
He really looks like Ultraman Millennium
>>
Stop with the fucking gimmicky shit
>>
>>15450156
>more Zero
YES YES YES!!!!!!
>>
He looks like one of those Taiwanese bootleg Ultras.
>>
>>15451389
They can't. It's the only thing keeping them afloat against the endless parade of gimmicks that Super Sentai and Kamen Rider has become.
>>
>>15451667
Neither SS nor KR requires to pull the old characters in the main story to accomplish the job.
For Ultra, however, requires all those extra power ups from the past to clear their path in every single story lately.
It's getting worst in a way.
>>
>>15451688
lets just wait and see how it turns out. Orb was gimmicky but turned out excellent.

>>15451762
I can't see them ending Orb with a comic book or something.
>>
>>15451808
Most likely a chapter or 2 of brief summary for the rest of the chapters.
The source has been posted in earlier threads.
There will definitely no video product for Orb on the story part.
Juggler's Aoyagi has also signed up onto another year long jdrama project.
Orb Fight will probably be the last thing you see with Orb as main.

>>
>>15452152
Orb borrows the light of other Ultras because he lost his own. Why does Xead do it? To suppress MUH DARKNESS?
>>
>>15452417
Ultra Heroes Capsules and Kaiju Capsules are developed by the Land of Light, as mentioned in the toy catalog. Developing the capsules without the riser is meaningless. The riser is also used by Belial. Probably some old tech from the Land of Light for the normal residents.

Unlikely. Ultraman has been in full nostalgia-pander mode since Max.
>>
>>15454878
I'm fine with nostalgia pandering, but having two fusion gimmicks in a row is a bit much
>>
He's going to be the Giorno Giovanna of this franchise
>>
>>15454893

Technically three if you want to count X's armors as a fusion gimmick.
>>
>>15454926
It's started from Ginga S with Ginga Storium borrowing from Taro's power.
>>
>>15450301
Do these capsules have the same flip gimmick as the Zyudenchis from Kyoryuger?
>>
>>15454933
Started a little earlier than that, or did you forget them using the other Ultra Spark Dolls to transform in Ginga?
>>
>>15454987
I mean fusion thing
>>
>>15455395

Yes, but he has a point. Ginga is the one who started this whole "borrowing the power of past Ultras" trend that every Ultra since has had.

>>15455631
He also gained Ginga, Victory, X & Orb through Beyond form. See his Ultra Capsule have they symbols.
>>
>>15452756
Immediately thought this.

Also, I've been an Ultrafan for as long as I can remember, but I honestly just can't get excited for the franchise's current direction. I miss them not have a million gimmicks, more than a handful of monsters of monster variations being used, and Ultramen having to have forms based on other stuff. I guess I'm old hat, but I can't get excited anymore.
>>
>>15455699
I was on your boat when X was announced and had the same thought
X ended up being more traditional than Ginga or Orb

Let's wait till a trailer to see if the other shoe drops

Ant reason why his Dyna/cosmos fusion forms lack a Flash Eclipse mode?
>>
>>15455699
>inb4 Chaiyo tries to counter sue Tsuburaya for copying one of their designs

>>15455907

That's essentially his "normal" form or Ultimate.

>>
When new info
>>
>>15456839
press release and promo on the 28th

So it said somewhere that Geed's human host/form will be called Riku or something, who has ideas which actor will play him; personally I would it like to be Koumi Hashimoto who played as Tenkai from the Hurricanger 10 years after movie with him suppose to a an embodiment of evil but instead was able to become Shurikenger as well as played as that boy from Go-Busters who was being possessed by a Messiah card but was able to overcome it when it latch onto something else.

I guess this is the general Ultraman thread as well?

I finished Neos recently. It's kind of a middle of the road series that doesn't do anything out of the ordinary. It's okay, but I found myself never really caring about the HEART crew or the Alien Zamu. I understand it was supposed to be a "back to basics" show, but that doesn't really do it any favors.

The question is how old Geed is. Was he conceived before or after Belial became a Reionyx?

The general "edgy" nature of Geed's design suggests the latter, but Belial was imprisoned for a long time before being released and has only been at large for an incredibly short time as far as Ultra lifetimes go.

If Geed is a "teenager," he would have to be at least 5000 years old.
>>
>>15467899
So the actor to play the human form/host of Geed was the one that played Nao, the younger brother of the person who became Zero's first human host and piloted Jean-bot.
>>
Hey, Belial can't be that bad of a father. At least Xead knows his name

>looks over at UltraSeven
>>
>>15468598

What are you talking about? Zero first introduces himself as "Zero, Son of Seven" and they've communicated several times.
>>
>>15468612
Zero didn't know Seven was his father, King was the one to tell him.
>>
>>15468612

Except Zero didn't know he was Seven's son at first and only found out after hundreds of years of grueling punishment on a barren planet for almost becoming another Belial.
>>
>The episode where Seven took Zero on a Roadtrip for "family bonding"

I never knew I wanted an Ultraman movie of the goofy film.
>>
>>15468545

Geed uses the powers of Ultraman and Belial to access his default form. If he's anything like Orb, he'll have an "original" form that will probably look closer to Belial's Early Type.
>>
I wonder if Orb will make an appearance as well, and be in his Thunder Breaster form; since it uses Zoffy and Beliel. Also, I wonder if Orb or Geed or gain a fusion form based on Dark Tiga and Ultraman Beliel before Rayblood changed him; using the original powers of there attribute of dark and light
>>
>>15468885
I'm hoping eventually Geed gets an evolved base form-type upgrade like most Riders get now. Say in this case a form that swaps out Ultraman and Belial for Nexus and Mephisto or Nexus and Zagi
>>
>>15468885
Maybe Belial's kid is born from Orb using Belial+Zoffy. Zoffy is his mom.

As someone who's working their way through the original Ultraman series, reading the current manga, and watched a bit of Ultraman 80, what other series would you guys recommend? Is it okay to jump around to more modern series, like with Kamen Rider?

Max, Tiga, and Mebius are all highly recommended.

i guess this is the designated ultra thread
watching Taro atm and I'm kinda getting annoyed
every episode he gets his shit pushed in, more so than seven did and plenty of times he could have solved a problem by transforming earlier but no we have to wait until the 20th minute for that
just watched the cicada episode and how he dealt with the bug he could have easily done when it first appeared but of course he has to keep being ultra a secret so no thanks keeping people awake at night is a much better solution
and then when he does what he should have done earlier the "isn't ultraman such a great hero?" plays
the fucking nerve
>>
>>15469627
Just watch Ultraman Story, it provides an alternative starting story for Taro and features appearances from the other brothers. Plus it's short.

Indeed, but I feel a little old now.

>>15469074
but again, by that age (however long it takes an Ultra to mature) he never once knew the name of his father.
>>
>>15470097
Zero obviously knows who Seven is, being the one that caught him with his hand in the candy jar and all
He just don't know that Seven is his dad

What are they gonna name Zero's kid? Nine?

Seven is a busy man
Maybe he has been doing the scouting job for thousands of years even before the start of UltraSeven
Space is, after all, HUGE

Still I can't ignore the fact that Seven was "in-love" with Anne while he has a wife at M78

I think Sakamoto can be decent and even good sometimes when he has a producer keeping him down. Nobody on SHT gives a shit so his work there was a mess of explosions, wire-fu and asses but the people on Tsuburaya tend to care a little more than SHT.

Asakura Riku found a Geed Riser and Ultra Capsules one day, which gives him the ability to Fusion Rise and become Ultraman Geed.
Riku also found out he has inherited the DNA from the evil giant Ultraman Belial.
Riku's destiny changes big time once he found out he is the son of Belial, and not some normal kid on earth.

So Geed's whole deal is gonna be "fuck you evil dad I'm gonna be a goddamn hero using your powers?"

I can dig it.

>>15472881
so it shows Geed's form had white eyes before glowing to the blue color as well as gaining red parts of his body, does that mean the white eye version is his pre-defalt form then?

Maybe not.
They stated "him" to be a warrior of good, but then also stated he has to face his own fate at the end.
We will see about that.

>>15472979
The eps directed by Kiyotaka Taguchi were the better eps of that series though. Plus helps that Ginga S had an actual budget, Ginga had none.

There was a book written by Tsuburaya's grandson about how bad Tsuburaya Production's situation was/is, why didn't it worked in Japan and overseas, and how the family killed the franchise.

I think it was just stylistically monochrome. It wouldn't surprise me if they pulled another Orb and made his final form his "true" form though.

It used to be the biggest tv Tokusatsu in Japan, and didn't need to rely on designing things around a toyline.

It's alive now, but a shadow of its former glory.
>>
>>15474327
No. It isn't.
TBS network still have a thing against the company. Toho wouldn't mind hosting new titles but has said no more funding from them. No sponsor would like to work with them due to their bad credit. Internal staff aren't as friendly as you think. Tsuburaya family war still going on. Major money has been spent at Vegas instead of the company itself.
It's simply a company waiting to be devoured and divided among the others.
>>
Oh, it seems that the Ultraman Orb movie will be out on July 28th of this year in Blu Ray/DVD.

An the X movie hasn't been subbed in english yet.
>>
>>15474467
what do you mean, it was already hard subbed by tv-nihon.
>>
>>15474461
Both.
Money "made" from overseas projects, and setting up the theme park was spent in Vegas.
Also due to family war for company ownership they completely fucked up the management. Staff who got fired can walk away with the ownership of the shows. Tsuburaya needed to spend more money to buy them back from their old employees. It's an ongoing problem, meaning if Sakamoto wanted to claim Zero saga he can literally do that with the support from Fields and Bandai.
>>
>>15474327

Not really. It used to be -the- toku and an internationally recognizable symbol of Japan. It used to be able to run on popularity and name recognition alone. Now it has to do the same thing as Rider and Sentai and bank on collectables and toys just to make ends meet.

The only people who really care about Ultra nowadays are oldfags, which is why every series since Max has banked so much on nostalgia.
>>

I think this is finally the year I watch Ultraman. Based on what we know, what are the basic things I'll need to watch to get into Geed?
>>
>>15474498
I guess obaka-tachi subs are better than nothing

Toku in general has been in decline for years. Apparently nips are willing to take the rubber monsters seriously only when Anno is behind the camera, otherwise they don't give a shit.
>>
>>15474562
So, the solution is to get him away from Eva permanently?
>>
>>15474576
That would be good for Anno too, considering how much the rebuilds suck. It's the best for everyone
>>
>>15474583
Plus he needs to embrace being an Ultra fan. He played an Ultraman himself back in his film student days, after all.
>>
>>15474327
Yes, Orb was watched a lot and sold a shit ton of toys.
>>
>>15475032
Orb ring only.
Orb Calibur didn't
