Yeah, I was scratching my head on that one too. And yes, that part where they think they got him was pretty cool. I really hope that the movie is good and that they either continue with the series, hoping it get much better, or that they start a full fledged series with a new Ultra.

I would like to see some of the original Ultras back but as them self's and not Spark Dolls being used, because in Ginga when Taro fought Lugiel with his theme playing it was such a nostalgia ride and I would like to see something like that for the others.

I didn't know it was possible to hate a character as much as I hate Nagi.

I just finished Ultraman Leo and I really don't know what to say about it. Parts of it I really liked while other times it was just really generic.

Still a good show overall though.

Leo's kind of a weird show. The opening arc is good, but then it gets stale and even staler once the training angle is dropped. Then it picks up steam again during all the "gimmick episodes" (Jack's return, Leo vs. the Ultra Bros, etc) and then the Black Star arc being the shot in the arm the show really needed imo.

I'm nearing the end of Mebius. I know a lot of people love this show, but I gotta say, it's not doing much for me. There's a lot of good episodes, world-building and the characters are fun, but the show fluctuates from being really good to being generic. It really doesn't help that I watched Ultraman through Leo before diving into Mebius.

I can see why a lot of people love it, but I just can't hop onto that hype train. I'm hoping the finale's strong at least.

The three part finale is fantastic. I have my complaints with it, but it's mostly perfect.

Ultraman Ginga S: Episode 15 - Up on Tsuburaya's YoutTube page! Don't forget that HD option!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_56Gq3SSBs

[spoiler="Episode Spoilers!]Really digging Victor Lugiel! Maybe it's my love for Arch Belial but man I love it, especially that creepy bending metal roar. The battle between Victor Lugiel, Victory and Ginga was indeed pretty neat. Especially their tag-team strategy and with their focused attacks to try and disable Victor Lugiel. I didn't see Victory's Hyper Zetton Scissor coming at all either, a welcomed addition to Victory's weapon arsenal. So the earth core is composed of Victorium Energy correct, that's what I managed to gathered. Gah, it ended on such a hanger! Eager to see how the series ends and whats up with Lugiel's body returning. Hmmm. [/spoiler]

80's effects are top notch so far. I dare say that they rival some of the Showa Godzilla films in terms of realism.

Looks like Ginga Victory needs to lay off the snacks ;)

In the final run of Mebius. The episode with Ultraman 80 was by far one of the best and the 4 Heavenly Kings arc is pretty damn good so far. Too bad the show wasn't this awesome through most of it's run, but hell, I'll take it.

Well, I guess this is our answer as to who the villains will be in this next movie...I just hope that whatever screen time they get, that it does them justice, especially the more obscure evil Ultras like Fake Dyna, Dark Mephisto, and Imitation Mebius.

I saw that earlier on Google Images and I want to say its a cleaver photoshop. You can make out some semi-obvious errors, mainly on Belial who has the "keyed out" white fuzz. Zagi's pose I am 90% sure its from the first Ginga Movie in the scence where both are flying towards each other before the beam clash. A piece of me wants to believe Darklops and Belial are back, but I'm not holding my breath entirely.

So this is a fake you say? Well, if it is, which now after reading what you said and looking at the picture makes me believe that it is, I'm glad. I want to see new enemies. Etarga looks cool and strong, but I want more! :huge:

Could be fake :P Won't know until the movie is out. I too want more Dark Ultra action, but you never know with Tsuburaya. Curve balls yo!
