He subsequently takes Kaminaga’s appearance and place, leaving the real Kaminaga’s body in the forest where he died. Ultraman in the form of Kaminaga then bonds a friendship with SSSP analyst Hiroko Asami, but she is unaware of the original Kaminaga’s fate.

The subterranean kaiju Gabora arises from a rocky hillside in the Momoyama District of Kamikita City. In order to prevent the kaiju’s radioactivity from causing harm, Ultraman kills it and flies off with its radioactive corpse.

Videos of these events surface online, revealing Kaminaga’s secret identity. Kaminaga unintentionally left his “Beta Capsule” device, which allows him to transform into Ultraman, with Asami, leading her to discover his true identity.

Asami frees Kaminaga from Zarab but is captured by Zarab herself. Kaminaga transforms into Ultraman, saving Asami, exposing Zarab’s disguise, and cutting the alien in two with the “Ultra Slash”.

XD My favorite quote from this movie: “Is he clothed or Naked?” – Yumi Funaberi | Why? Because it got me questioning if Ultraman is really clothed or naked.

I liked the movie and it’s overall message nearly brought me to tears, but here’s a few things i would have done better:

– This is clearly meant to be a reboot film of sorts. Man and Zoffy still have the same names as their canon counterparts. So why are all the human names different from THEIR season 1 canon counterparts? It’s inconsistent and makes no sense. Either fix the humans names, or make the Ultras names completely new.

– The pacing is way too fast. Holy crap this movie expects you to keep up with the fastest talking I’ve seen in a movie. It feels less like a movie and more like they just tried to cram season 1’s highlights into 2 hours, because every scene feels like an episodic mini-episode not all that connected to the other scenes. That’s a cool idea, and it’s something I WANT to see in a reboot film, but it could have been executed better. I think if they trimmed out some of the more unimportant bits, or just made the movie longer, it would have been much easier to absorb what was in the movie.

– We didn’t even get to see the fusion on screen. Why? Show, don’t tell.

– We also didn’t get to see the entire world coming together to beat Zetton, and instead it was only implied by that one guy speaking English with a metaverse headset on. Again, why? Again, show, don’t tell.

Ultraman does have a different name, Ultraman Lipiah or Ripiah depending on the subtitles, but yeah you are right about Zoffy being the same
