The plot and cast details for Ultraman X, Tsuburaya’s upcoming new Ultra Series, have been released.


Like Ultraman Ginga and the currently-broadcasting Ultra Fight Victory, Ultraman X will mainly be broadcast as part of Shin Ultraman Restsuden, taking over the run of episodes. The exact amount of episodes the series will run for has yet to be announced, while the toys for the series will be unveiled in July.

An Ultra Flare from the Sun has enveloped the Earth, causing all the Spark Dolls lying dormant in the land and ocean to be brought back as monsters. To face this new menace, humanity creates a special defense unit called Xio, armed with the latest technology.

15 years later, while battling a monster, Xio member Daichi Oozora hears a mysterious voice telling him “Unite!” Just then, as he was unable to withstand the monster’s attack, an intense light envelopes Daichi. “We have now United! If we join our spirits, we can fight that monster!”

The mysterious light of Ultraman joins with Daichi to become Ultraman X and fight the threats to the Earth.
