Raiga Terasaka as Kengo Manaka aka Ultraman Trigger Returns in ULTRAMAN DECKER! Origin of the New “Ultra Dual Sword” Revealed!

Jun.23, 2022



The new TV series Ultraman Decker begins broadcasting on the TV Tokyo Network in Japan from July 9th, 2022. Every Thursday at 5pm JST, we will be introducing you to the series’ latest news, including the main cast members starring alongside Kanata Asumi, the protagonist played by Hiroki Matsumoto.


Kengo Manaka brought peace to the Earth as Ultraman Trigger and one of the original GUTS-Select members, suppressing the rampaging Eternity Core and defeating the three Giants of Darkness. Years before Ultraman Decker and Kanata took the baton. We are proud to announce that Kengo will be appearing as a guest in Ultraman Decker!

Kengo will of course be played by the star of Ultraman Trigger Raiga Terasaka, with his signature “Smile! Smile” you know and love.


We can now also reveal the secrets of the golden sword wielded by Ultraman Decker, the “Ultra Dual Sword.” The Ultra Dual Sword was featured in the latest poster and digest trailer, both introduced in last week’s online announcement event. As it happens, this sword is entrusted to Ultraman Decker by Ultraman Trigger as a symbol of their bond.


Ultra Dual Sword

Kengo Manaka left Earth ten years ago after his battle against the Giants of Darkness. Now, he protects people from a new threat; Sphere! After obtaining a golden blade, the “Ultra Dual Sword”, a vision of danger flashed through his mind. Taking the Ultra Dual Sword, now in the form of “Ultra Dual Key” in hand, Ultraman Trigger departs for Decker and the new members of GUTS-Select.

Kengo can summon the Ultra Dual Sword by equipping the Ultra Dual Key in his GUTS Sparklence. He can also attach the Ultra Dual Key to the sword’s hilt and scan Ultra Dimension Cards to unleash various special attacks.

Expect to see more of the Ultra Dual Sword as it passes from Trigger to Decker, and from Kengo to Kanata.
