    ULTRAMAN TRIGGER: EPISODE Z SUMMARY

    Two years have passed since the final battle and peace has been restored around the globe. However, things don’t stay quiet for long when monsters once again begin to appear on Earth. At the same time, a series of mysterious break-ins take place at super ancient ruins around the world. Expert team GUTS-Select, led by a new captain (Yuichi Nakamura), prepares the squad to launch an investigation. Little do they know, it is the beginning of a fierce battle with the fate of the universe in the balance.

    GUTS-Select and Ultraman Z (Zett) rush into battle with Kengo Manaka in the lead. A sinister figure emerges from the shadows: Evil Trigger, a sinister giant that inherits the shadow.

    To make everyone smile again, Ultraman Trigger and Haruki (played by Kohshu Hirano), human host of Ultraman Z, join forces with the new members of GUTS-Select as well as Ignis (Kei Hosogai), human host of Trigger Dark, will take part in the ultimate battle between light and shadow!
