GUTS-Select’s Giant Battleship “Nursedessei” Takes Flight in ULTRAMAN TRIGGER! Pilot Tesshin Sakuma will be played by Tadashi Mizuno!

May.06, 2021


The new TV series Ultraman Trigger is set to start broadcasting on July 10th, Ultraman Day, on the TV Tokyo Network in Japan. At 5 PM every Thursday we will release the latest information about the series and its main cast!


Today we’ll be introducing the mobile mothership of the expert team GUTS-Select, a giant anti-monster battleship called “Nursedessei,” and its pilot, Tesshin Sakuma!


Tesshin will be played by Tadashi Mizuno! Many of our fans may remember Mizuno, who appeared in the 2017 TV series Ultraman Geed as Haruo Kume, the store manager of “Galaxy Market,” where protagonist Riku Asakura worked part-time. This time, look forward to Mizuno’s dynamic performance as a hot-blooded pilot!



■Anti-Monster Battleship “Nursedessei”


The Nursedessei carries the elite members of the expert team GUTS-Select into battle against monsters. This gigantic battleship is 40 meters long and is equipped with a large-scale charged particle cannon called the “Nurse Cannon” on its starboard side.


Designed by Akito, the team’s genius engineer, the Terrestrial Peaceable Union (TPU) devoted all of its resources towards the Nursedessei’s development. In addition to having a bridge that functions as a mobile command center and rooms for each of the members, it also houses Akito’s lab, where mysterious stone slabs excavated from the ruins of the Ultra-Ancient civilization are analyzed.



■Tesshin Sakuma (40 Years Old)


A master pilot, or rather “muscle” pilot who drives the 40-meter class giant battleship, Nursedessei. Tesshin is a muscle-bound fitness nut who can be almost swelteringly hot-blooded. He tends to have a poor sense of personal space, earning the ire of Akito. However, he isn’t the type to emphasize hierarchical relationships and is extremely frank with the rookie Kengo, earning him esteem as a sort of older brother figure.
