Think of him as Iron Ultraman in this incarnation.

So if the animation ends up being that shitstain Toho did for Planet of the Exposition, I'll definitely not be bothering with this show.

^ Its animated by Production I.G and Soya Digital Arts, so I would expect something hybrid like Reideen ( https://youtu.be/d1EVvpXHhkU ) - PotM was Polygon and honestly it might be one of the best looking things the studio has put out, which is why a lot of folks on these boards were bummed out by the Polygon announcement

If that is one of the best looking things that studio has ever done, then why the hell are they still even in business? PotM had the worst animation I have ever seen in any anime, especially movie form. Hell, the cheaply made stuff from the 90s looked like it was a Miyazaki film in comparison.

Motion capture used for the fight scenes? That will be interesting to see if that brings us out of uncanny valley or not

Hell yeah!

Hope Tsuburaya creates more content for Netflix worldwide. That's how they can really get Ultraman known.

Looks like I'll have to watch it via fansubs then as Netflix doesn't release anime series until an entire show has aired.

Of course, I'm not expecting much given it is going to be using "OH GODZILLA! WHAT TERRIBLE LANGUAGE!" ass CGI.

^ Netflix has been doing weekly talk shows which breaks the binge model a little and gives hope that they could bring this over like crunchyroll.. i think you are probably right though based on how they have treated other anime series

Yeah, I don't like how they do anime like that recent Fate series. Why would you want to wait until the whole series is out before streaming it? People are just going to watch it via fansubs then, which will cost them viewers.

I think this means the show is a straight-up Netflix original, so it'll probably drop in its entirety everywhere.

I'm looking forward to this. Hopefully it's more entertaining than the dull Godzilla anime.

Here's the trailer, April 1st release date. And does Shin Hayate sound like Susumu Kurobe is voicing him?

https://youtu.be/oy2C5k7gQBM

I like the animation, and as a fan of the manga I'm pretty excited for this.

Looks pretty cool. I can only hope that this series increases Ultraman's profile.

Unfortunately, no. They did get someone with some history doing voices for Ultraman at least.

From the few comments I've seen on Twitter, people don't seem to be big fans of the animation style. I'd hope that doesn't remain an issue once it's released.

I love the anime / manga design for Ultraman Ace. It's definitely my favorite of these designs, and I wouldn't mind certain aspects of a filtering into the live-action Ultraman costumes!

^ I was just about to say the opposite! I think visually it's probably the best looking CGI anime I've seen.
