New scans from the latest issue of Televi-Kun and Televi Magazine have given us another look at the new Ultra hero, Ultraman Z (pronounced as Zett). The new rookie hero will make his debut in Ultraman Taiga The Movie: New Generation Climax which will premiere on June 20th, 2020.
Tsuburaya Ultraman Global Portal on twitter also released the series synopsis of his story. Ultraman Z is a hard-headed rookie who is dedicated to justice and will be mentored by Ultraman Zero.
The newest Ultra Hero is Ultraman Zett, the disciple of Ultraman Zero, who is now celebrating his tenth anniversary! An admirer of Zero, Zett worked hard to become a member of the “Inter Galactic Defense Force.” With a passion inherited from his teacher Zero, Zett is an Ultraman who always looks forward and forges ahead.
In this series, our protagonist who transforms into Ultraman Zett is Haruki Natsukawa (played by Kohshu Hirano), a member of the anti-monster robot force “STORAGE”. The twenty-fourth* Ultraman TV series Ultraman Z features a story in which Zett and Haruki will grow together. Please look forward to this latest series!
Tsuburaya Productions previously announced that the Ultraman Taiga series will be made available worldwide in 2020 after the company won the right to be the sole intellectual property owner of Ultraman. Taiga is the 31st series to the Ultra Series, and the first series released in the Reiwa period. Ultraman Taiga is also the seventh entry to the New Generation Heroes lineup. The series began airing on TV Tokyo on July 6, 2019.
