And for the purposes of this handy list, we'll define "best" in general terms.

Ultraman Geed has multi-parters growing out of every orifice these days, doesn't it? With few exceptions, this series has kicked into high gear since we struck the halfway point, and I can't tell you how happy I am to be in this sweet spot. This is where things get interesting. Where we're done setting up the status quo and having random yarns about cute pet monsters or smelly saunas and are ready to pay off everything that's been building up these past dozen or so episodes.
