5 Things to Love About Ultraman Orb: The Origin Saga

5 Things to Love About Ultraman Orb: The Origin Saga

Articles, Blog, Movies & TV, Reviews, Toku, Ultraman
When it was first announced that 2016's Ultraman Orb would get a prequel follow-up, my reaction was a mix of curiosity and caution. The show about a charming wanderer, who just happened to be an alien superhero in disguise, had just won me over, and its characters were ripe for a second look. But then word came that this new chapter would take place before the main series and be released on the streaming site Amazon Prime Japan. Would this be a worthy addition to Orb's brief but exciting legacy, or would the circumstances of its creation see it stumble toward an unceremonious finish? Here's a shortlist of the ways in which Ultraman Orb: The Origin Saga pleasantly surprised. The Prequel Beats The Original Upon hearing when the events of this series would take place, my honest feeling...
Ultraman Geed 11 Shows Its Receipts in Best Episode Yet

Ultraman Geed 11 Shows Its Receipts in Best Episode Yet

Well, this is hilarious. Two episodes after we issue criticisms at Ultraman Geed, the latest entry into the Ultraman franchise, for its lack of punch, they serve up what is quite easily their greatest effort to date. Not only is it the most stylish, action-packed episode so far, it disperses story concerns that were mounting in the lead-up to this installment. Nice timing. Director Taguchi Kiyotaka infuses the episode with a visual flair unlike any of Geed's previous chapters, proving exactly why the Ultra franchise needs to keep this man onboard as long as they can. From the tense dialogue sequences between the devilish Kei and the show's plucky young hero Asuka to the high-octane battle sequences both above and within the crumbling city, "The Geed Identity" is a cut above the rest. ...

Ultraman: The Red-Suited Stepchild

The tokusatsu fandom is a fun bunch, but it can sometimes be a bit unforgiving when things don't quite look or sound right to our eyes. If it doesn't shout its name, wear a big, plastic device that people somehow believe is just a watch despite it looking nothing like one, and demonstrate a convenient array of sweet martial arts moves, it's not always going to register with some of us in the English-speaking fan community. So many were introduced to this subgenre through the likes of Saban's Power Rangers, and their many follow-ups, all of which adhered to a pretty strict formula of roll calls, teamwork, and big cheesy slogans. Maybe this contributes to the reluctance some have expressed over the years to jump into the wildly-successful, long-running Ultraman franchise. Let's face it....
