Tsuburaya Productions’ latest TV series Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga (now broadcasting in Japan on TV Tokyo every Saturday 9 AM, and worldwide YouTube catch-up at 9:30 AM JST) will meet its first climax in October and continue on with the second-half of its arc. Before the end of the first arc, Ultraman Trigger will receive a new god-like form called the “Glitter Trigger Eternity”! The Giants of Darkness has been a long-lasting threat to Ultraman Trigger. In addition to the existing Carmeara, Darrgon and Hudram, a fourth Giant named “Trigger Dark” is revealed. Overwhelmed by Trigger Dark, who has tremendous power of darkness, Trigger, a.k.a. Kengo Manaka gains the Ultra-Ancient light and awakens with a new form: Glitter Trigger Eternity! On his chest, the Triangle Crystal is hidden with the power of trinity: a collection of Multi, Power and Sky Type. The weapon that appears from the Triangle Crystal called “Glitter Blade” obtains energy that is so powerful that even Trigger himself could barely master. Ultraman Tiga transformed into Glitter Tiga at the very last episode of Ultraman Tiga. Inheriting the spirit of Tiga, Trigger also obtains a form that contains the word “Glitter”… How is this going to affect the story? Please look forward to the second half of Ultraman Trigger! Talking about the second half of Ultraman Trigger, another Ultra hero is going to join Trigger’s venture! From the world of the Ultra Galaxy Fight series (which the latest installment has just been revealed in the livestream event “Ultraman Connection Presents: ULTRAMAN OFFICIAL YouTube Special featuring S.H.Figuarts”), the second guest Ultra will be Ultraman Ribut from the Galaxy Rescue Force! It is also revealed that the human form of Ribut will be played by Shimba Tsuchiya! <Shimba Tsuchiya Profile> Born April 4, 1996 in Tokyo.

I had a major admiration for superheroes in my youth. When I was in ninth grade, I started attending the action studio created by Hideyoshi Iwata, who has been playing the main Ultra Heroes in recent years, from there on my 3 years in high school was all about action training. At the timing when I was about to enter university, my tutor Iwata told me to start thinking seriously about my future and what I really want to do for the rest of my life. My answer to this was to become a voice actor. 7 years has passed and today I am finally going to play a role in the Ultraman series. I hope I am able to connect the light shined from Ultraman Trigger with the light that I received from the heroes I looked up to as a child.
