    It appears they're actually going for it. They re-uploaded episode #2 of "Ultraman Z" about twelve hours ago:


    Edit: Apparently, the rerun of Ultraman Z on YT is for viewers outside of Japan only (I did notice they used the English dub of the Ultra Galaxy Fight promo). Presumably, the YT videos turned out to be really successful for Tsuburaya on the international market, and the rerun is supposed to allow the international fandom to grow (as in, people who are already fans tell others who now have the chance to watch for themselves).

    So, uh, this week's 26th episode of "Ultraman Zero: The Chronicle" is on none of the episode lists I could find, and I can kind of see why, as it's pretty much just a re-edit of the past two episodes:

    But this is the final episode of the series. They have no replacement show for Wednesdays announced yet, so we'll have to wait and see if and what is coming up.

    After dealing with Baltan last week, "Ultraman 80" sees the return of another classic kaiju in Redking, in episode #46:

    No Wednesday upload. At least for this week, Tsuburaya didn't present a replacement for the concluded "Ultraman Zero: The Chronicle".

    "Ultraman 80", though, continued today with episode #47 (also getting close to the finale) with one of the weirdest Ultra-Kaiju ever, and that's saying something:

    It appears the new uploads of "Ultraman Z" for the international audience stay online for longer than the usual two weeks. Episode #1 is still online. As is episode #4 as of this weekend:

    The kaiju in episode #35 of "Ultraman Max" has some shades of Superman and E.T. (and visually, Donald Duck):

    In episode #48 of "Ultraman 80", 80's human form Takeshi - who used to be a school teacher - reconnects with a former student to train for a marathon, when a strange high-speed kid appears (and, obviously, eventually turns into a kaiju):
