■ Latest Characters and Voice Cast
● Ultraman Tregear (Early Style): Yuma Uchida
Ultraman Tregear’s original appearance is revealed for the first time!
Famous for his appearances as a villain in ULTRAMAN R/B THE MOVIE ～ SELECT! THE CRYSTAL OF BOND (劇場版ウルトラマンＲ／Ｂ セレクト！絆のクリスタル, Gekijō-ban Urutoraman R/B Serekuto! Kizuna no Kurisutaru, 2019) and the ULTRAMAN TAIGA (ウルトラマンタイガ, Urutoraman Taiga, 2019-20) television series and film, Ultraman Tregear will appear in his Early Style, his original form before he sank into villainy!
What will Tregear do as his original form? And what is his relation to the mysterious golden giant Absolute Tartarus?
Yuma Uchida continues to deliver an enthusiastic performance as the voice of Ultraman Tregear.*
Actor Comment: Ultraman Tregear will appear in ULTRA GALAXY FIGHT: THE ABSOLUTE CONSPIRACY!! So, I was delighted to voice him for the first time in a while.
What’s more, this time… Seeing Tregear in that form… Oh, I want to say it.
I hope everyone can see it soon.
Here it comes! Please look forward to it!!
*The English voice of Ultraman Tregear will be reprised by Michael Rhys from the dubbed version of ULTRA GALAXY FIGHT: NEW GENERATION HEROES (ウルトラギャラクシーファイト ニュージェネレーションヒーローズ, Urutora Gyarakushī Faito Nyū Jenerēshon Hīrōzu, 2019).
● Ultraman Taro: Hiroya Ishimaru and Showtaro Morikubo

to the series ULTRAMAN GINGA (ウルトラマンギンガ, Urutoraman Ginga, 2013) and ULTRAMAN TAIGA. For ULTRA GALAXY FIGHT: THE ABSOLUTE CONSPIRACY he will be joined by Showtaro Morikubo, who will voice the younger Ultraman Taro alongside Ultraman Tregear Early Style!*
In their youth, Taro and Tregear once were close friends in the Land of Light. What happened to them? The answer will finally be revealed in this video production.
Actor Showtaro Morikubo Comment: Among the many Ultraman, Ultraman Taro is the one for whom I feel a powerful, powerful affinity.
My name is Showtaro, after all. I never thought the day would come when I would be connected to Ultraman Taro by playing him in his youth.
I look forward to the future activities of Ultraman, beloved across generations and around the world, and I hope that I’ll have more chances to participate.
*The English version of Ultraman Taro will be reprised by Bill Sullivan from UULTRA GALAXY FIGHT: NEW GENERATION HEROES in both younger and current days.
