The 41st Ultraman is on his way! Tsuburaya Productions have announced that Ultraman X will debut at 6:00pm on Tuesday, July 14th 2015.
SciFiJapan broke the news that the ULTRAMAN X will be played by Kensuke Takahashi, who plays Xio Officer Daichi Ozora. When speaking about the role Takahashi had this to say:
“I’m thrilled to be involved with the venerable Ultraman series. He’s the hero I’ve always wanted to be and now I will become that hero,” said Takahashi. “I’m working hard to become the Daichi that I think everyone wants to see. And, while ULTRAMAN X continues the traditions of the franchise, he’ll incorporate many elements of the modern, new hero!”
The plot, as provided by SciFiJapan, centres around a massive “Ultra flare” from the sun that envelops the earth. As a result of this Spark Dolls of monsters and aliens buried underground and undersea begin to awakening and cause a traditional amount of Ultra-chaos and ultra-mayhem. Mankind is defended in this series by a special science team known as Xio.
Over the next fifteen years Xio battle the kaiji until one day Daichi Ozora (Takahashi) hears an unearthly voice proclaim: “Unite! If you and I join together, you will fight that monster with one heart, one mind!” He agrees, merging with the mystic light and becomes Ultraman X!
Why Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future was ahead of its time!
