Calling it now, being a being of pure energy or light won't be his default form but it will become his finishing move or a temp power up.

Tonally, I just want Anno and Higuchi to wave that art-house flag proudly just like Shin-G. The best case scenario is that we get a more weighty version of that Daicon Film Return of Ultraman short

I’m not too worried about the design, though. Higuchi was a co-designer on Powered, so it’ll probably be a nod to the original in some way

Because the biggest blockbuster in Japan is an art house film. :lol:

It astounds me to this day how people hold this view of Shin. It`s one of the most crowd pleasing films to date in Japan.

based off this video (which is a good primer on what to expect IMO), I'm guessing something like OG Ultraman but offputting enough to keep the alien-ness inherent.

I knew I should’ve gone with ‘freak flag’. ;)

In any case, the point is the same; it feels singular in execution and doesn’t feel like a generic sci-fi blockbuster

It's not an arthouse film in the strictest sense (if there even is a strict sense to such an ambiguous term), but it definitely has a lot more of an arthouse sensibility than most movies in the genre.
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

Ultraman the Next. Set out to do what Anno and crew are most likely out to do also: reinvent the character.


Whereas The Next gave Ultraman a Guyver-esque organic armor-like skin texture, anyone have ideas for what other routes they could take (besides the whole Ironman-type power suit from the Netflix anime)? I am guessing they will go the whole being of light approach and give him a more-photon-like skin texture.


He could look something like this:



That is literally just the classic design only capable of moving his mouth and making facial expressions

Yeah everyone says he can't be freakish cause he's a hero (fair point) but he's also an alien. I think you can find the right balance as Mothra is sort of freakish looking in some incarnations cause they play up the bug part but still retain her kind benevolent nature and heroics.

Took me a minute to get the Kamata-kun joke. At first all I was seeing was Ultra Dildo...

I mean, I got the reference but I still thought it was a dildo...

There's a joke to be made about LamangoKaijura's caption and a picture of a dildo but I'm too scared to make it :lol:
