Chant my name!
Tsuburaya Productions have released new information about the newest instalment in the Ultra Series – the forthcoming Ultraman Z!
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Ultraman Zero, the series will feature Zero’s student as the titular hero. Ultraman Z will be voiced by Tasuku Hatanaka (Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, My Hero Academia) and assumes the human guise of Haruki Natsukawa, played by Kohshu Hirano.
Ultraman Z will transform using Ultra Z Riser, registering a unique Ultra Access Card and scanning three Ultra Medals to assume a variety of forms:
Alpha Edge – a space martial arts form using the medals of Seven, Leo and Zero.
Beta Smash – a wrestling-style form using the medals of Ultraman Ace and Taro.
Gamma Future – a psychic-powered form using the medals of Tiga, Dyna and Gaia.
Also making a return in the series is Riku Asakura, aka Ultraman Geed! Geed will also be able to transform using the Z Riser, card and medals – assuming the new form of Galaxy Rising! This form combines the medals of Ginga, X and Orb!
Ultraman Z’s opening theme will be “GOSHOUWA KUDASAI WARE NO NA WO! (Chant My Name!)” performed by JAM Project member Masaaki Endou, and it’s closing theme “Connect the Truth” by Nami Tamaki.
Ultraman Z begins airing in Japan on June 20th 2020! Check out the trailer below as well as the cast comments in the full Tsuburaya release!
