The banner of Ultraman has certainly become a brand of its own. One cannot deny that this franchise stands out in the superhero genre. Moreover, when Netflix opened the gates for this anime, the world applauded the effort. The pilot season of Ultraman came out in April 2019. Soon after, Ultraman Season 2 was also renewed in September 2021. Three months later, the first look of the superheroes is finally out. Here is all you need to know about the fiesta that is about to hit the Netflix Catalog next year.
The Ultraman Franchise dates back to the 1960s when Ultra Q first came out on television. Eiji Tsyburaya, Tohi Narita, and Kazuho Mistuha were the original creators of this superhero. In the long run, the brand collected a sum of US$7.4 billion only in merchandising. This gives the picture of how big of a deal this banner is. So, when Netflix brought the rights to this name, everyone had high hopes. While the pilot season did not disappoint, fans are expecting the same quality from the second season.
Ultraman Season 2: New Trailer Out!
The Netflix Japan Event 2021 brought in some great announcements for the upcoming year. One of the most striking announcements amongst these was the trailer reveal of Ultraman Season 2. The first look of the second season took over the internet within hours of release. The minute-long teaser displayed the Six Ultra Warrior Soldiers in a single frame. Fans also got to see the CG animation of the series for the first time. The last frame of the teaser displayed the release details of the new show.
The overall story of Ultraman is based on the legend of the Ultraman soldiers. Seven years after the origin of Ultraman, the Earth is in a state of turmoil once again. However, there is no world hero to save the people now. Shin Hayata’s son Shinjiro has no choice but to take up the duties that his father once used to adorn. Thus, Shinjiro becomes the next Ultraman for the world. The pilot season dealt with the conflict of invading aliens.
Ultraman Season 2 will most probably continue with the same storyline. As suggested by the trailer of the sequel, the world will be under the protection of the Six Ultra Warrior Soldiers. Moreover, fans can also expect to see Shinjiro’s Ultras form in the new season. The main antagonist of season 2 is yet to be revealed. This villain will most probably be yet another extra-terrestrial invader.
