New Ultraman series for 2017: Ultraman Geed.

The next title of the upcoming Ultraman series for 2017 has been confirmed and it is entitled Ultraman Jade, this is the fifth Heisei Ultraman series of 2010's since Ultraman Ginga aired in 2013. Just like Ultraman Orb, the title Ultraman Jade is still related to precious stones. Stay tune for more updates about this upcoming series.


Not sure how reliable the source is, and I don't find any other references yet after a search. Anyone else hear anything on this?

This news was going around yesterday, it does appear to be a legitimate trademark filing. There is some disagreement about the romanization of the name. I was going to make this topic yesterday but I wasn't sure what to call it!

ウルトラマン ジード

ジード is transliterated as "Jiido". There is a Fist of the North Star character with the same Katakana that has been translated as either "Jade" or "Zeed".

Basically, we don't know and have to wait for more info! The timing of the trademark does suggest that this will be this year's new show (X and Orb were trademarked around the same time during their respective years). Most likely the next info will come via leaked toy catalog scans, probably in April or May.

'Precious stones?' It's an Ultraman/Steven Universe mashup!

Heh, I noticed that too. Maybe the author thinks an orb is a gem??

So does this mean that Dyna and Seven are going to have some type of prominent focus in this show?

Anyway, I'll look forward to see it since Orb ended up being so promising.

Add Jeed to the list of possible weird romanisations :lol:

If it is 'Jade' maybe we'll see some green in the design?

I like the Ultra shows but dislike the fact that the new designs are increasingly just too busy with fiddly bits to differentiate them from past designs. Having a bold new color or shape define the new look while keeping things simple would be much appreciated.

So weird.... the ANN articles cites Tokusatsu Network, which says it's written in English as Zeed.

OK, look, I wouldn't normally post something without a source, so take an enormous grain of salt on this. This is so out there I want to believe it, but I figure even if it's fake it's good for a laugh:

Ultraman Xead... son of Belial!?

I dig his design. He looks like Zarab disguised as Ultraman from '66. Apparently he'll also have fusion forms, which were such a hit with kids in Orb.

I used to think Belial was Zarab! I figured the design was intentional, at least.

Fans are speculating that Zero and Xead are half-brothers :O

Apparently he's in opposition to his father, but Zeed and Zero are also in conflict with each other? Maybe he's an outcast from the other Ultras because of his parentage? Could be an interesting story line. Hopefully we'll get this series over here faster than Orb Origin.

August Ragone spells it 'Xeed' and says it rhymes with 'exceed.' Isn't 'Xead' the officially spelling already?

Not sure about the official Romanization of it, but the Katakana ジード can only be pronounced as "jeed."

Hmmm... I seem to recall an iconic Japanese character where a 'j' sound ended up rendered with a 'z' during the Romanization.

Was it Gamera?

Zigra = ジグラ
As in: ガメラ対ジグラ

Zi is often Katakana-ized as ジ. Heck, Godzilla is ゴジラ, of course.

ジード could be the Katakana version of Zeed or Xeed or Xead, but the actual pronunciation of ジード will always be "jeed".

Edit: Actally, I need to correct myself. ジード is pronounced "jeedo". I forgot the "o " at the end! It's subdued though, so jeed is close.

I've gone ahead and edited the thread title to reflect the (as for now) new understood title of the series.

I think "xead" pronounced in English comes closer to soft g sound, but they might have decided for something with a more plain spelling. Or it could just be the fevered imagination of whatever Bandai employee put that catalog together.

Telebikun has the official reveal this week, most likely accompanied by some sort of short teaser.

Maybe they didn't want another 'X' name so soon after Ultraman X?
