Synopsis

Fifty years ago, an extraterrestrial giant of light known as Ultraman saved the earth but vanished. Ultraman's human host, Shin Hayata, was left with no memory of his time as a hero. Hayata's young son, Shinjirou, is found to have been born with a more powerful and durable body than any normal human. The organization who aided Ultraman, the SSSP, reveals Hayata's past to him. His father then dons a power suit again, assuming the role of Ultraman once more.

One night, Shinjirou is attacked by an alien named Bemular and rescued by his father, who is severely injured in the battle. With dangerous aliens lurking in the city and Hayata out of commission, it falls to Shinjirou to pick up the torch. But in working with the SSSP as the new Ultraman, Shinjirou finds himself wondering how far is he willing to go to help people.

I'd never personally watched anything related to Ultraman before, but I'm aware of the great influence the character had on Japanese television since it's introduction. He's as big as Superman or any American comic book hero ever was, instantly recognizable by just about everyone. This show is based on a manga that was trying to be a sequel/soft reboot to the original continuity, with the original Ultraman's son as the new protagonist.

In our world of constant capeshit movies and reinterpretations of classic characters into a more modern setting, a show like this fits right in. The super technological spin they put on what was once ...

Ultraman!

Is it the japanese version of Superman but instead of Clark Kent we have a japanese highschooler saving the world? Well, kinda...

Unfortunately, I havent watched the original version of Ultraman. On MAL its listed as alternative setting but after watching the first few episodes I think thats wrong. The events of 2019 Ultraman set place 10 years after the end of 1980 Ultraman. So its a sequel and a ...

Preliminary (12/13 eps)
While I'm not too familiar with previous Ultraman shows and content, the opening chapter of this show grabbed my attention with an interesting setup and style that managed to make up for the bland presentation. But as the show went on, the focus shifted on to the actual main character and things started to fall apart.

Story:
Fairly standard and about what you expect based on the setup. For a show like this it doesn't necessarily need to be much better.... provided the other elements are good which, sadly, isn't the case.

Art:
As some previous Netflix shows, this is basically entirely made using dated looking, ...
