    OK, that does look pretty cool.

    I'm a little surprised at how close their Ultraman design is to the original. Their Godzilla was highly revisionist.

    Ultraman is more stretched out and looks more like an alien that would show up in "The Day the earth stood still". Apparently they're doing Ultraman through CGI. No "man in suit" like it is traditionally done

    With the "shin" aspect of this version I was expecting something a little more mysterious/horrifying similar to how we saw Shin Godzilla. A more "gritty" "realistic" approach.

    I didn't feel that with the trailer which is good IMO. Looks like good old Ultraman fighting giant monsters.

    It seems like every "Shin" movie reboot is less gritty than the previous one, if you also count the R-rated Shin Kamen Rider from the early '90s.

    While it doesn't look gritty, it certainly looks more realistic in its portrayal of the humans and their technology.

    Sorry I'm late, my internet at home hasn't worked for the last 22 hours.

    Anyway, here is "Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Absolute Conspiracy"'s tenth episode:


    Japanese with optional English subtitles


    English dub


    This episode is the finale of this series of "Ultra Galaxy Fight", but it ends on a cliffhanger for the next series coming in fall 2021. It also leads Z and Zero directly to where we find them at the beginning of episode #1 of "Ultraman Z".

    Well, looks like, after last week's finale of "Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Absolute Conspiracy" led Zero and Z to the point in the timeline where they'd appear in episode #1 of "Ultraman Z", Tsuburaya chose to re-upload said episode #1 of "Ultraman Z":


    I doubt, though, that they'll start the whole series over. It's been just over a month since it ended, the DVDs and BluRays are currently released in Japan, with the North American release probably not that far off, either. Not to mention the re-telling of the series in "Ultraman Chronicle Z".
