I’m fine with dubs, but it’s on a case-to-case basis these days.
Hell, even the Ultraman ‘66 dub has its issues.

Next time, hire NYAV Post. High quality work at non-union prices.

Cringe all you want, fools, but I can finally rejoice in the fact that we're getting official English material for the Ultra series again!
(No offense to the people who don't mind the dub, or who just don't like it that much. I respect your taste in spite of my crude humour.)

Whatever happened to the Orb and Geed movies? Are thy going to bring them to theaters like they did with X and Ginga or not?

Oh great, Mecha Gomora again. And some Black Panther-tier CGI (Though not that CGI in Toku TV shows is ever any good). Aside from that, looks fun. And looks like there will be at least 3 Pigmons!

If the rumors are true, than Anno's gone made, because he wants to make Shin Ultraman.

Talk with the people making the US/international adaptation of the Ultraman franchise.

There's a good bit of discussion of the recent Ultraman series being skewing far too kid-friendly and making it hard for older audience to enjoy the show. This is good because I am really looking forward to a more mature or family-accessible tone in future Ultraman series. So hopefully an Ultraman series that is similar to the MCU in terms of tone and seriousness will be developed in the near future.

The toy gimmicks and lack of world-building depth in the Ultra-series is something that has turned away older audience and it seems that even Tsuburaya themselves are aware of such problems.

The Tiga/Dyna continuity has a huge potential because all the depth that recent Ultra-series lacks. It's more of a commentary on human society as a whole that makes it feel similar to shows like Star Trek in many ways. There's a lot of exploration of technology and its impact on human society, which is more sci-fi than the newer shows ( which are less sci-fi).

Hopefully the sci-fi element will return to the franchise. The recent Ultraman series have been quite disappointing in that regard.

We have been getting small episodic nuggets of a more challenging/eclectic take on Ultraman across the recent series. But on the whole, I have to agree with you that the recent TV Tokyo entries are tipping hard toward the kid audience. I just hope that Tsuburaya doesn’t make yet another decision of a swinging the pendulum too hard towards ‘dark’, since those entries often end up embarrassingly dull for my taste.

As for Mr. Gomez, hearing a fellow fan go through the intricacies of UM is reassuring, knowing that he’s the one helping the franchise gain a foothold in the west. Realistically though, I don’t think Ultraman will crack mainstream America the way it is. The technology behind the production - Suitmation & miniature sets - will most likely be sacrificed and replaced with standard TV pipeline-friendly CGI which, as minor a gripe as it may be for a lot of people, will take part of its uniqueness out of the equation for me. If an Ultraman series for the international audience actually happens, I hope that Tsuburaya finds a production company who respects the franchise as much as he does.

At best, this brand new lore that Mr. Gomez is creating will bolster the quality of the mainline series in Japan and make it appear more salivating to streaming services like CR (if the choose to continue streaming the series)

It needs a balance of "darkness" with levity. My personal reason for liking Tiga so much is because I think it strike a nice balance for me as a kid. Ideally Ultraman should capture the tone of shows like Doctor Who or the older Star Trek series? Those are family shows that appeals to children without losing their maturity.

I'm fine with CGI considering Tsuburaya themselves have experimented with CGI before. The CGI just needs to be of better quality.

This has the potential to look super gaudy.

That said, I love how they’re leaning hard into Taro for the design.

The DCD game, Ultraman Fusion Fight is getting an English release in Indonisia next month, and Matt Frank has revealed that he will be voicing Ultraman Belial in the game.

That's... a thing.

Yes, three names were copyrighted - Taiga, Titus and Fuma. Remember that only Rosso's silhouette was revealed this time last year and we had to wait until the following month to see Blu. It will most likely be the same case this year too.

Two items, the Taiga Spark and Tregear Eye, were also copyrighted, so I guess Tregear is back already.
