Ultraman Kaiju Densetsu: 40 Years of Truth
Ultraman THE FIRST
Ide appeared in this manga and like the main characters, his role was the same. In the later arcs of the manga, he was tricked by Fuji, who, unbeknownst to him, was possessed by Alien Baltan since the first Baltan case, into putting Anti-Specium plates into the rocket that Hayata was riding.
- It seems to be a running gag in the Original of Mitsuhiro getting hurt, such as his Black Eye in episode 2 after falling of the bed, and in episode 7 he hurt his head.
- He has the honor of being the first character to break the fourth wall.
- Susumu Ishikawa originally got the role of Ide but he left during the shooting of Ultraman. Hence, Masanari Nihei was chosen to replace Ishikawa as Ide.
- In Kazuo Umezu's adaption of Ultraman, Ide appeared more cartoony compared to the rest of the SSSP crew's, notably his large cartoony eyes with smaller eye lashes and oval button nose.
