Shinjiro Hayata, son of Shin Hayata, who was the first Ultraman, has a natural special power. One day, Shinjiro was attacked by unknown enemies. Ultraman saved the day, and unmasked himself to show Shinjiro that he was his father. Wearing an Ultraman suit provided by Mr. Ide, formerly a member of the SSSP (Science Special Search Party), Shinjiro throws down the gauntlet and helps his father. Then the real battle commences.

I'm assuming that it'll probably be a movie than a TV series.

This statement has got me really confused. Are you saying that superhero media is irrelevant and unpopular? Because that is definitely not the case.

Thats something you'd think they would have done a long time ago.

Depending on the staff and the format it could be interesting to see !

It will be animated by Production I.G. And Digital Frontier((a CGI only studio)

It will probably be a mix of 2D and 3D like 70% of anime coming out in the last 10 years.

The manga is highly detailed some times. You can't expect them to draw every little detail. Even mangakas use CGI in manga as well.

CGI IS THE FUTURE!

It's not going to be done by Tatsunoko? Aww, I am disappointed. Oh well. 2019 is a long way to go. I hope they do a good job with it...

I fucking love linebarrel's manga (the anime is almost completely anime original even down to character personalities, its also awful) so im super hyped to see this as its by the same people. They have some seriously sick mecha designs that are portrayed more as organic monsters than mechs so i imagine there will be some really awesome designs in this.

I definitely reccomend people check out linebarrel if they are looking foreword to this, its not flaweless and a tad style over substance but its still a pretty unique sci fi series and just has some extremely badass moments. Its honestly criminal how it never got a real adaption cause if it got a studio like bones it'd be pretty amazing but instead it got jipped with gonzo.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

But didn't Ultraman already get an anime adaptation?

Oh wait they changed the name a bit, called it Evangelion instead. I can see why that would be confusing. Haha.

They did, at least once. Though I got the impression it wasn't that popular with the fan base, because they never seem to talk about it much.

I've been reading and liking the start of the manga. Good for Viz that it's getting an anime since I'm guessing the sales have been awful up til now. Doubt I'll ever watch this adaptation myself with the ugly 3DCG and all, though.
