Ultraman Orb was the 28th entry in the Ultra Series, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Ultraman and 20th Anniversary of Ultraman Tiga. The series consisted of 25 episodes running from July 9th to December 24th, 2016. In addition, Ultraman Orb was simulcast in North America via the Crunchyroll streaming platform, and remains available on demand through its service. Furthermore, Ultraman Orb received two spin-offs, a prequel series called Ultraman Orb: The Origin Saga that aired on Amazon Prime Japan, and a mini-series, Ultra Fight Orb. It also had a feature-length film, Ultraman Orb The Movie: Lend Me The Power of Bonds! Ultraman Orb Thunder Breastar made its debut in episode 12, The Dark King’s Blessing. The form is a fusion of Ultraman Zoffy and Ultraman Belial, obtained through Gai Kurenai’s Ultra Fusion Cards and Orb Ring. Following its debut, Gai was reluctant to use the form due to Belial’s uncontrollable power. Yet, Gai eventually learns how to control Belial’s evil impulses to his advantage.
