Ultraman Leo

Ultraman LeoComing off of an acquisition earlier this year of Ultraman Max and Ultraman Mebius, Crunchyroll will be coming to the site with official English Subtitles! Hit the jump for the official announcement!

From Crunchyroll Staff on their forums:

Hey guys, lugiamania here with some mid-week announcements! For all you Ultraman fans out there, we’ve got another catalog coming your way today at 4pm Pacific Time!
Ultraman Leo will be available for users in the following territories: United States, Canada, Latin America, UK, Australia, and New Zealand.
All-Access users will be able to view the whole series today, and free users will be getting 10 episodes per week starting with 1-10 today!

Ultraman Leo comes from Nebula L77. He comes to Earth as a second home after his native land has been destroyed by Alien Magma.

On Earth, Ultraman Leo takes the human form of Gen Otori, a gym coach at a local sports club. After witnessing the fight between Ultra Seven and Alien Magma where Seven hurt his leg and lost his power to transform into the giant fighter, Leo accepts the mission to defend the Earth on Seven’s behalf. He joins MAC (Monster Attack Crew) with Seven as the captain, receives rigorous training and transforms into the gigantic Ultraman Leo when things get out of control.

Unlike the rest of Ultraman warriors, Leo’s fighting style is featured in martial arts giving him far greater physical abilities than any of the other Ultra Brothers. He, along with his brother Astra, is awarded the title to become a member of the Ultra Brothers.

This comes as great news for fans of Ultraman who did not get to catch the KIKU-TV broadcast of the series in Honolulu (which will end in December).
