No, I don't think so. At first I wasn't sure how I would like his ability, but now it has grown on me. It's different. I like it better than Sheperdon transforming into a saber, that's for sure.

Eh I guess. I do wish he would like, NOT show up some times so we could get more Ginga seeing as the series is named after him. Wish Victory played more of a Hikari sort of role and only showed up occasionally. But oh well I guess.

But still I think that the main Ultra is still Ginga even if Victory has some spotlights.

Eh, I guess. Since this series has a nack for doing stuff differently, I guess this could be the first duel Ultra series with two Ultras consistently.

BTW is there a place to go to watch all the episodes yet? Im having trouble tracking some down

Have any of the episodes even been subbed yet?

So yeah…this is actually a thing.

Not sure how many of you knew about this. Hell, not even sure you wanted to know about this.

Cut out the cringe worthy parts with the kids and it's not bad. It'd be cool to see an animated Ultraman show done by the team that did Transformers Prime.

I'd dig an anime adaptation of the current Ultraman Manga. It could look really sick IMO.

I actually saw that the week it came out lol. Another foreign Ultra that Tsuburaya's gonna forget about :P

It's okay. I kinda like the transformation sequence Ribut has of him running.

I like the fighting scenes and the way he kills off his opponents. But everything else, from the language to those freak'n kids... :|

Just noticed I wound up the creator of this thread. However, I came across this by accident. http://www.ultrahawaii.jp/oahu/

So Ultra Hawaii was a thing. I consider it an honor to have Mother and Father of Ultra coming to Earth to renew their vows ;) Anyone else in the mood for some vacation pictures/videos? i sure am. Very found of their visit to Haleakala National Park (?) Short Cut Link, very gorgeous view.

Yeah, I watched it a couple of days ago. I thought that Birdon was going to get more screen time and cause more damage. So now we know where the next kaiju gets the canon from...

Man, Ginga S has been really improving over the last couple episodes. I kinda wish it was a full show now, but still, it's good to see Tsuburaya doing something that's having me want more.

I'm almost towards the end of Ultraman Leo, but man, what an odd show. It's not like odd in terms of like Ace or Taro, but just how it flip-flops so often. It can go from incredibly grim to being batshit goofy and weird, to being dark again. Like, there’s so many odd tonal shifts going on and one can tell Tsuburaya was trying EVERYTHING since Leo wasn’t as popular as previous shows. I mean, I’m really enjoying the show, but it’s an odd viewing experience.

Also, Astra is way underutilized as a character. He just shows up, helps Leo, then runs off again. They could've had a Gaia/Agul or Ginga/Victory thing going on, but it's kinda wasted.
