Following Shout! Factory’s announcement of partnering with Mill Creek to bring Ultra Series shows to streaming, the channel’s been making a series of exciting announcements for Ultra Series fans starting with Ultra Q premiering on TokuSHOUTsu in November. November is also bringing UltraSeven to TokuShoutsu, and most recently Ultraman Orb was confirmed to be airing in November as well. Among these announcements, TokuSHOUTsu is also bringing the original Ultraman to Pluto TV in November.

TokuSHOUTsu’s announcement of Ultraman coming to streaming had initially sparked confusion from fans as the gif included in TokuSHOUTsu’s tweet (above) shows the logo for Ultra Q despite using hashtag, #Ultraman. Prior to this tweet, only Ultra Q had been announced for streaming so some assumed this tweet was further promoting Ultra Q. However, further inspection reveals the gif comes from the opening for Ultraman which transitions from a colored version of the Ultra Q logo to the actual Ultraman logo.
Ultraman, a follow-up to Ultra Q, follows Shin Hayata who bonds with Ultraman, an Ultra Warrior from Nebula M78, which saves him after a life-threatening crash. Shin Hayata being a member of the Science Special Search-Party, (or SSSP) he comes across a monster named Bemular while investigating paranormal activity. When Bemular attacks, Hayata activates the Beta Capsule and transforms into Ultraman to protect Earth.
While no details regarding specific air dates or times were revealed, more information and future announcements are expected to come from TokuSHOUTsu’s social media accounts as November draws near. TokuSHOUTsu can be found on Pluto TV channel 848 in the Gaming + Anime section.
