    It seems there's been some info about the next Ultraman. So far it's just a couple of images and some (unconfirmed at the time of posting) grabs from that Japanese bot detailing applications for copyrights/trademarks (I can never remember which!) on names. We don't even know yet if it's a film or series, live action or animated, coming it this year or next year etc etc. If anything else shows up I'll update this page.

    I'll put the copyright bot images under the spoiler button below, as they're large and frankly not very interesting to look at.

    The three applications are supposedly for the names 'Ultraman Bull', 'Ultraman Loop' (or Lupe or Rupe or Lube or something along these lines) and 'Ultraman Rosso'.

    Personally I don't speak Japanese so if anyone does and these are wrong then do let me know so I can wipe this egg off my face.

    That would be weird considering they had advertised Geed as being the last Heisei series.

    Tsuburaya never said that.

    Yeah, they clearly did since I clearly read it say that somewhere.

    There was a whole discussion on it too as people thought it meant Ultraman was going away for good, not that they meant for the Heisei emperor.

    Yeah I'm not remembering any of that. Do you have a source you can link to? I'm positive Tsuburaya never said anything of the sort.

    If I find it, I'll post it. I'm pretty sure our discussion was on Toku Legion back when Geed was airing.

    This supposed toy ad is going round on twitter:

    Apparently these are Ultraman Russo and Ultraman Bull (Bull is the one in the foreground with the more Ginga-like crest) in their flame, aqua, wind and ground forms.

    As you can see the two forms on the left are mixed up: Russo's goes (from left to right) flame, aqua, wind, ground. Bull's goes aqua, flame, wind, ground. Maybe that suggests Russo's default form is flame and Bull's will be aqua?

    Rumour now has it that the show's name will be Ultraman R/B.

    Those look more like some rejected Kamen Rider forms.

    The show is called Ultraman R/B (which is what Lube turned out to be) and the main heroes are brothers. Ultraman Rosso is the older brother, his default form is Flame (Taro) and Ultraman Blu is the younger brother, his default form is Aqua (Ginga). The story revolves around the quest to find the R/B Crystals in order to summon the Orb Origin Crystal.

    The collectibles this year are called the R/B Crystals and the transformation item is the R/B Gyro. Although there are no fusions based on previous Ultraman characters, the elemental powers do correlate to older Ultras. The initial forms are Flame (Taro), Aqua (Ginga), Wind (Tiga Multi Type), and Ground (Victory).

    The initial R/B Crystals are Flame (Taro), Aqua (Ginga), Wind (Tiga Multi Type), Ground (Victory), Blade (Ultra Seven), Fighting Power (Geed), Thunder (X), Armor (Hikari), Strike (Ace), Explosion (Dyna), Fire (Mebius), and Healing (Cosmos).

    Ultraman Orb will play a big part in the story, he's one of the three primary Ultras and is getting a few new items. There is Orb Ring Neo, which can combine with the R/B Gyro to summon monsters, as well as his new "main" form, Ultraman Orb Dark. The Crystal Case even has an imprint of the original Orb Ring on it.

    I don't know why, but I'm starting to feel like things are getting redundant by having another series where the Ultraman uses the powers of previous Ultras.

    I think there's at least some progression in that these forms aren't fusions of past heroes at least. Like, you look at the water forms and they don't remind you of Ginga at all. I think because of Tsuburaya's at times precarious financial situation, Bandai is maybe a little afraid to go all the way and this is them testing the waters.

    More info about the show has been posted online. The big one being that the series starts airing on July 7th and is scheduled to last for 25 episodes.

    The head director will be Masayoshi Takesue, who previously did a few episodes each of Orb and Geed. Takao Nakano, who was the head writer for Ultraman Orb, is returning to perform the same role in this series. They have also announced two secondary writers: Junki Takegami, who was previously the head writer for Megaranger, GoGoV, Gaoranger and Go-Onger, along with Satoshi Ito, who I can't pin down any previous credits for so may be a newbie.

    Now for the pretty pictures! All images are from the 'Tsuburaya Station' website. Description translations from The Tokusatsu Network.

    Ultramen Rosso and Blu with their primary weapon, the R/B Slugger, which can change between Rosso form and Blu form (basically it has a detachable blade).​

    [​IMG]

    This is Katsumi, who transforms into Ultraman Rosso. He is played by Yuya Hirata.
    He used to be an aspiring baseball player but gave it up when his mother disappeared eight years ago in order to look after his family. He now works in his father's clothes store, "Quattro M". It's suggested that he can be quite hot-headed.

    [​IMG]

    This is Isami, who transforms into Ultraman Blu. He is played by Ryosuke Koike.
    Isami is Katsumi's brother. He is in college studying "space archeology", which was apparently the same field their mother was in before she disappeared. He is a bright and positive person but dislikes exercise.

    [​IMG]

    This is the brothers' father, Ushio. He is played by Ginnojo Yamazaki, who toku fans may recognise as having previously played Lucky's dad in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.
    Ushio owns the store "Quattro M" which his son Katsumi works in, but Ushio doesn't really have a head for business and prefers to concentrate on his own self-titled clothing line.

    [​IMG]

    This is the brothers' younger sister Asahi, who is played by Arisa Sonohara.
    Despite still being in school, Asahi takes care of the house while the rest of the family works. She is "the glue that keeps the family together". She hates conflict so much that she won't even play rock/paper/scissors. She always has some candy with her, and her catchphrase is "Happy!"

    [​IMG]

    This is Makoto Aizen, who is played by Motoki Fukami.
    Makoto is the president of Eizentech, a famous company that researches space technology and new sources of energy. Eizentech is based in Ayaka City, which is where the Minato family lives.
    Someone completely absent from the cast details was Hideo Ishiguro, who played Gai Kurenai a.k.a. Ultraman Orb. Hideo recently left his agency and to my knowledge has not yet signed with another. However, we know that Orb is meant to be a major character, so we'll have to wait and see whether he at least voices the character in-suit or if they're going all 'Taro' on us.
