Coming this Summer, Ultraman will be jumping to the big screen in Shin Ultraman 2021 | シン・ウルトラマン 2021. Hopefully they will make it available to stream as well. This looks to be pretty entertaining although the CG titular character, along with CG Kaiju is a bit off-putting. Perhaps they will do a bit more shading and texture work on the computer generated models. Either way this will be one that I shall watch with glee.
You’ll notice that the Ultraman’s design is a bit different. The fin that ran from the top of his head, all the way down his back is missing. Along with that the most noticeable change is his lack of a chest timer beacon. These things will take a minute to get used to after being a fan of this hero for my entire life. I was surprised to find out that this was the original intended design. Another intended part of this design was that Ultraman would have a movable mouth… I do hope that they just drop that concept altogether.
