    "Decades ago, a being known as the Giant of Light joined Shin Hayata of the Scientific Special Search Party to save Earth from an invasion of terrifying monsters known as Kaiju. Now, many years later, those dark days are fading into memory, and the world is at peace. But in the shadows a new threat is growing, a danger that can only be faced by a new kind of hero - a new kind of Ultraman...

    Shinjiro is an ordinary teenager, but his father is the legendary Shin Hayata. When he learns that his father passed on the "Ultraman Factor" to him, and that he possesses incredible powers, nothing will ever be the same again."

    The website for the Ultraman manga has announced that it will be receiving an anime adaptation due for broadcast in 2019. Further details have not yet been made available.

    A teaser/announcement trailer has now been released containing a bit more information. The show will be co-directed by Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) and Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed). It will be all 3D computer animation done by Production I.G and Sola Digital Arts.

    Ugh, computer animation sucks ass! Japan can not do CGI as they have shown with Berserk, Knights of Sidonia, and Shin Godzilla.

    The co-directors of this show have made an appearance at the AnimeNEXT convention, where they revealed that rather than using normal 3D animation for this series they will be using suit actors to perform motion capture. Hopefully this will mean the fights have at least some of the feel of a toku show.

    Oh great, so we're going to have to wait like a year after it airs in Japan to watch it.

    Then again, I'm not expecting much from it since it's going to CGI its animation.
