Watch the Final Special Trailer of Ultraman Final
The final season of Ultraman Final is now available exclusively on Netflix
Netflix has commenced streaming a special trailer for Ultraman Final, an animated adaptation of the Ultraman manga by Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi. The trailer with English subtitles explicitly highlights the ultimate form of the series' protagonist, Shinjirō Hayata.
The conclusive season of the anime made its global debut on Netflix on May 11. Joining the cast are M.A.O, Kōji Ishii, and Hideaki Tezuka, who will be portraying the characters Balkyua, Mephisto, and Daisuke Arashi, respectively.
Returning to direct the final season are Kenji Kamiyama (known for works like Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Eden of the East, and Napping Princess) and Shinji Aramaki (known for works like Appleseed, Harlock: Space Pirate, Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars). The anime is being produced in 3D CG by Production IG (known for works like Napping Princess) and Sola Digital Arts (known for works like Starship Troopers: Invasion). The music composition duties will be handled by Nobuko Toda and Kazuma Jinnouchi once again. The opening theme song, "RAYS," will be performed by NOILION and MIYAVI, while the ending theme song, "AVIATION," will be performed by Void_Chords feat. Ryohei & Foggy-D.
According to Netflix's description of the anime's storyline, the events occur years after the original Ultraman series. The renowned "Giant of Light," after successfully defending the Earth against colossal extraterrestrial beings, is now believed to have returned to its home. Shin Hayata's son, Shinjiro, possesses a peculiar ability, and upon discovering from his father that he is Ultraman, he assumes the mantle to protect the Earth from the new wave of alien invaders.
Kamiyama, Aramaki, Production IG, and Sola Digital Arts have all returned from the first season to contribute to the second season.
Initially, Tatsuhisa Suzuki was set to voice the new Ultraman character, Kōtarō Higashi/Ultraman Taro, in the second season. However, due to his hiatus from the entertainment industry last year, Suzuki voluntarily withdrew from the role. Tomoaki Maeno has since taken over the voice-acting duties for the character.
