"The story of the son of Taro. And Taiga is here!"

―Series tagline

"Let's go Partners! Buddy Go!"

―Second tagline

Ultraman Taiga (ウルトラマンタイガ Urutoraman Taiga) is the 31st entry of the Ultra Series, created by Tsuburaya Productions. It is the first Ultraman series to be broadcast in the Reiwa era.

Synopsis

"Only few are aware of the aliens that inhabit this Earth. What you're about to witness is a miraculous story, where these young people cross paths."

―Narrator's Introduction
Aliens have been emigrating to Earth secretly, but only a handful knows about this truth. Living in such a society, the main character Hiroyuki Kudo begins working at a private security organization E.G.I.S. (Enterprise of Guard and Investigation Services). The organization takes care of cases related to aliens, and Hiroyuki works day and night to protect peace.

However, there lies a huge secret in him, which he himself is not aware of. He carries Ultraman Taiga’s “particle of light”.

The new story begins as Taiga’s powers revive from Hiroyuki's body![1]

Trivia

  • Despite officially being the first Reiwa era series, it is still part of the "New Generation" series, making it the seventh New Generation Ultra Series.[1] This series, being the seventh series to be produced consecutively, also marks a new record for the Ultra Series as a whole.[4]
  • The second sentence of the series' first tagline is a homage to the third verse from Ultraman Taro.
  • The "T" denoting Taiga's name in the title card is similar to Taro's title card, which also did the same albeit in a more visible manner.
  • Ultraman Taiga is the first New Generation series to have more than 25 episodes discounting Ultraman Ginga and Ultraman Ginga S since they are seen as separate entries.
  • This is the first series since Ultraman Nexus to change its ending theme song.

Note

  1. "Pirika's original actress, Momoka, was replaced by Ayuri Yoshinaga, due to conflicting schedule.
