Ultraman Orb is the latest Ultraman to join the Crunchyroll family, and the second to be simulcast, after last year’s Ultraman X. Orb was created to celebrate the Ultra Series’ 50th anniversary, and features the titular Ultra using the powers of two past Ultras at once.
Crunchyroll posted the following tweet:

If half of the people who’ve been asking Crunchyroll to license Ultraman Orb watch it, it’ll be our #1 show this season ✨
