Together with Hiroyuki, he grows to become a true Ultraman.
The second Ultraman that dwells inside Hiroyuki.
Ultraman Titas is a warrior and a sage from Planet U40, the birthplace of Ultraman Joneus (first appeared in THE ULTRAMAN (1979)), as opposed to the Land of Light in Nebula M78. With his carefully trained body and healthy spirit, he is skilled in heavyweight battles.
The third Ultraman that dwells inside Hiroyuki.
Ultraman Fuma is from Planet O-50, the planet where Ultraman Orb (first appeared in ULTRAMAN ORB (2016)), Rosso and Blu (both first appeared in ULTRAMAN R/B (2018)) acquired the power of the warrior of light. He has quick reflexes and various techniques that make him strong in battles that require speed.
He has a rough personality, but also a strong sense of duty.
An evil Ultraman that first appeared in ULTRAMAN R/B The Movie (2019).
He is from Nebula M78 and was originally a close friend of Ultraman Taro, but fell to the dark side.
He is the arch-nemesis of Taiga and relentlessly targets him.
Hiroyuki Kudo (aged 22)
A young member of the private security organization E.G.I.S, Hiroyuki has a kind heart and a strong sense of justice. He was attacked by an alien when he was a child, but was saved by the light of Ultraman Taiga who unexpectedly arrived on Earth. Since then, Ultraman Taiga dwells inside him.
However, Hiroyuki does not know about this, and lives a normal life with a normal family.
As the story goes on, he encounters Titas and Fuma as well, and become buddies with them.
Hiroyuki has a kind heart that embraces everything, including the unknown. He grows to become the bridge for “humans”, “aliens”, and “Ultraman”.
Comment from lead actor Yusuke Inoue:
I’m Yusuke Inoue, and will be playing the role of Hiroyuki Kudo, the main character.
When I was given this role, I was very happy and excited that I will now be playing Ultraman, a hero I had always admired.
Once I told my family, my mother sent me photos of the Ultraman show I used to attend every year since I was 5. These photos reminded me of how much I had admired Ultraman since I was a child.
This time I will be giving this feeling to the kids, and I hope to play Ultraman Taiga that will be remembered by many generations.
As I just made my debut, the newly employed member Hiroyuki Kudo overlaps with me a lot. With the support of my elder colleagues, I think I am becoming one with the character.
With the amazing cast, staff, and of course those who are watching, I would love for everyone to enjoy ULTRAMAN TAIGA. I would greatly appreciate your passionate support!
Ultraman Taiga will begin airing on July 6th at 9 AM in Japan on TV Tokyo.
