Long ago, there was a Giant of Light that protected Earth against the dangers of invading aliens and giant monsters. His name? Ultraman. He fused with Hayata, a member of the Science Special Search Party, and once he had fulfilled his duty, he left Earth. Time passed, and humanity entered a time of prosperity. However, this time of peace hides secrets beneath its surface…

Now, at a time when the world needs a new Giant of Light, and a new hero who inherited the light factor from the original hero emerges. Yet, he is no giant, but a simple high school student, in a strengthened metallic suit…

His name is Shinjiro Hayata. Son of the man who was once Ultraman, Shin Hayata, he starts a new story of his struggle to be the Ultraman of a new age. His story unfolds from here!

ULTRAMAN first appeared on TV in 1966, and after half a century, the ULTRAMAN comic (produced by Eiichi Shimizu & Tomohiro Shimoguchi, published in Monthly Hero’s) was first published. The ULTRAMAN comic is set in the world after Ultraman left Earth. Ultraman appears as a regular-sized hero clad in a metallic suit, and is none-other than the son of the former Ultraman who faces his regular people problems. The new world view which this comic introduced garnered adoration and support from many young fans, becoming a hit-seller, with cumulative publications at over 3 million copies.

With the new ULTRAMAN anime, we similarly dive into a challenging new world. Taking the reins are director Kenji Kamiyama, of Ghost in the Shell STAND ALONE COMPLEX, and Napping Princess, and director Shinji Aramaki, behind APPLESEED, and Starship Troopers: Traitors of Mars.

Director Kamiyama has undying support from animation fans across the world for his profound Science Fiction settings, and his portrayal of multi-layered human drama storytelling. Director Shinji Aramaki is one the leading Japanese full 3DCG animation movie producers and has received critical acclaim overseas for his design of mechanical gadgets in CG animation. ULTRAMAN, being undertaken by this pair of globally accredited creators, is also being made in full 3DCG animation. Production IG and SOLA DIGITAL ARTS are using a mixture of motion capture technology to reflect the actor’s performance against the Ultraman Suits’ intricate textures in 3DCG, as well as incorporating the dynamic action that can only be expressed through animation.

Japan’s treasured hero Ultraman is born again in the ULTRAMAN animation and opens a new chapter in his history to the rest of the world.



Long ago, there was a being known as the Giant of Light. Once this giant had fulfilled his duty, he returned to his home world in distant space. The earthling he fused with, losing all memories of their time together, also returned to his rightful place. Ultraman’s existence became a part of history, and the Science Special Search Party’s Japan branch also finished their duties, and founded the Giant of Light Memorial Museum.

Shinjiro Hayata is a sentimental high school student. However, he realizes he has surprising abilities far beyond those of “normal” people, such as tremendous jumping power and an strong body resistant to injury.

Then one day, he discovers that his father, Shin Hayata, was once the hero Ultraman.

He also learns of the aliens operating in the shadows of a now Ultraman-less Earth.

As it happens, Shinjiro is one of a few matches for the new Ultraman Suit, developed by Ide of the now secret organization, the Science Special Search Party.


“Let me be blunt, I want you to be the next Ultraman”
