Ultraman anime adaptation will have worldwide simultaneous release next year

This week, it was revealed in the 12th volume of Eiichi Simizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi’s Ultraman manga that the series would premiere in Spring 2019 on Netflix. In addition, the release will be done simultaneously worldwide. As previously revealed, the series will use a combination of 3D and motion capture to give the anime a unique look. The series is being produced by Production IG and Sola Digital Arts and will be directed by co-directors Shinji Aramaki (Batman Ninja) and Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex).

The plot of the series is a continuation of the story told in the original Tsubaraya Ultraman series, albeit set in a different timeline. The story follows Shinjiro Hayata, son of the original Ultraman host, Shin Hayata, as he discovers the power he inherited from his father, as well as the responsibility of the mantle of “Ultraman” in defending Earth from alien threats.

The manga is being distributed by Viz and is available in stores now. The world premiere of the anime is being held this weekend at Anime Expo in downtown Los Angeles.
