Here's some infos I found from Japanese websites and some friendly user of mine.
Possible Release Date Leak
- Do note that the table you want to looking is the quarter months (On the Subheader Table), and focus on the word written as "ウルトラマンシリーズ". At the start of Q2, there's the word written as "新シリーズ/配信" which means "New Series/Delivery(?)", and i don't understand what the word "delivery" means..
- Q1: January, February, March
- Q2: April, May, June
- Q3: July, August, September
- Q4: October, November, December
- Maybe, the word "Delivery" could be mean "On-Process".
I may be thought about these:
- Late February ~ Late March
- Trademark registration (Checked)
- Around the end of March
- Silhouette release in magazines etc. (Checked)
- Around mid-April
- Toy catalog (Checked)
- Around the end of April
- Official lifting (Ultraman and the leading role only. Gachapon reveal might be included too)
- Around the end of May
- Synopsis and all cast announcements
Update March 26
I am so excited!! Showa-style color timer is back and that's normal, hopefully they don't put the natural collar besides the neck. Eye is back to normal (It would be cool if it's blue colored).(Roove would be cooler, one letter off from "Groove")
Yesss! Two ultras will be introduced at the same time!
Oh oh look look! There's more!
Update April 6
I knew there will be something interesting around Mid-April. Even the small red text box says: Details will be announced from our company after mid-April.
Update April 14
There it is!!
Ultraman Falcon ?
A wikia user named Zhu Huong Ng told me that the rumors about the new Ultraman will be named "Falcon"/ウルトラマンファルコン (Not to be confused with this Gal) and the Gimmicks might be a disk-type gimmick, named Ultra Disc (ウルトラディスク). So we're going to have a Bird-like Ultraman? Or maybe a Bird-like Ultraman with Ultra Fusions? (I rather prefer an Armored theme) This might be a True or False. Rumor suggests that he is also going to be the next Ultra Brothers, preceeded by Mebius (Even some Japanese fans are wished that).
Imagine the gimmick is based off to CD Disc, if the reader is scratched, then he can't transform to it.
(Credits to Crazybeard and source from 4chan) Uhh seriously?? Another weird name? They said, that the Ultra is the son of Ultraman Taro and mentor of Ultraman 80 and the series takes place in Side Space. It also still uses Fusion aspects, but they said that this will be an Ultraman+Kaiju fusion-aspect and it will be the last day for the fusion aspects. The gimmick name is Ultra Disk.
Three forms have been speculated so far, they are:
- Dynarise (Taro + Eleking) (This doesn't makes sense at all)
- Rampage (Nexus + Izmael) (Reminds of Dark Lucifer)
- Beatquest (X + Cyber Gomora)
Cast will be:
- Yosuke Sugino
- Takamasa Suga (Previously potrayed as Shinji Kido in Kamen Rider Ryuki)
- Raura lida
Side note: 4-chan is almost unrealible source
The Signal name is clear-in joke. However, the other content still remains unknown. Last time i checked, Geed had been rumored to be the son of Belial, which was actually true.
After revealing those trademarks, they're all starting to talk about the directors.
They said that Masayoshi Takei is very good at directing two or more ultras, which is why they want it to be the main director. However, they still want Abe Yuichi to be the main director, though Takei might be the sub-main director. Some said that Taguchi will be part of the director (Not a Main Director). Suguru Tomita might appear as well.
New Ultraman Rumor
Basically, a rumor with some information about the new Ultraman. Don't read it if you don't like rumors.
Update from March 19
The filming starts at Sagamihara Park?
Found this pic of the schedule.
Strangely enough, i found out that people talking about the Zodiac Ultraman. (Why is this reminds of Kamen Rider Fourze's Horoscopes and the tribes from Gransazer series?)
Ohh, i also found a Japanese guy wrote something like this (Don't know if these guys telling the truth): (Using the Google Translate, so expect them to have inaccurate translation)
I went to see Sagamihara park only between 1 PM and 2 PM. However, it was said by the staff to not getting near the area, especially spoiling important information is prohibited
Perhaps 4 scenes were taken
- Monster appearance
- The leading character going? And stopping the heroine?
- People running away
- Hero? Transform
A hero-like actor is about the late teens of black-haired slim The blue clothes in the scene heading towards the monster, the transformation scene was wearing red clothes. As far as information on this thread is concerned, maybe there are two actors instead of the same person?
The transformation tool had something like a blue and black grip force measuring device on the left hand
But wait, There is more:
Heroine style girls are high school girls wearing blazers. I was calling "Please wait!" Against the hero who runs towards the place where the monster appeared. I am afraid I heard the part of ○ ○ as "chief", but I am not confident. The severity of the traffic volume around the park and the neighboring Haiba-dori Park are cut down forests, environmental sounds are not able to hear well.
- Other guy replied this:
> I think that the part of ○ ○ seems to be "chief", but I do not have confidence. There is a possibility of the protagonist Ultraman is the first captain of the defense corps...?
I did not know it was too far. When the hero transforms "Asahi, I will go now!" I was shocked. Is it the name of the heroine?'
There's also one guy wrote about the director: I heard that the main heroine is an ordinary school girl, and the main director is not Koichi Sakamoto. It looks like Abe ("Abe Yuichi") is the main director.
Bonus: Some guy just want the Music composer is Toshihiko Sahashi, or Kenji Kawai for alternative (Or maybe, Both)
I repeat again:
- The motifs are based of Constellation (Zodiac Aspects)
- Ultraman of red and blue appears
- The Blue Ultraman fights more carefully than the red one
- The transformation item is a blue and black grip force measuring instrument
- There are people who stand up against the Kaiju while holding a gun
- The Protagonist is a school girl named Asahi(?)
Update March 20
Translation: "New Ultraman" is a toy transformation item interlocking item. Ball image: 5 faces Length 4 pieces (20 pieces entrance) Ball image: 12 pieces of fascinating lineup expands collection.
Update March 21
Regarding the post about the leaked Transformation item, one guy stated this: To use all 12 items, Ultraman with 12 constellation motif is definite. Is it a heroine called Asahi or a supporting role of cute girl? And a defense corps? Although it can think of a private organization like a Team EYES from Cosmos' monster protection at a twisted little place.
- 12 constellation motif
- A girl named Asahi
- Defense Corps
Taro, Disk, Monster Fusion and New Ultraman Silhouette are still uncertain.
Now, for the silhouetted Ultra, this guy stated this: If this silhouette was also listed under a toy it would be true. The information below is completely unspecified. As Mr. Suga of an actor does not do SNS at all, it does not come because information about Mr. Takamasa is complained.
>Jump To Ultraman Signal<
It is uncertain but is this part leaking from somewhere? 4-chan is a suspicious information
Rumors suggest that Blu/Bull and Rosso are actually the seperate component from Roove/Louve/Lube.
Update April 6
There seems to have another filming session, at some various place:
- Friday, April 6, 2018: Ome City
- Monday, April 9, 2018: Chofu City
Hopefully, someone takes the picture during the filming, though it is best not to do it.
During the filming in Chofu City, somebody just witnessed that Takano Hassei (Fujimiya) is also being part of the director (New Director or Guest Director?). If only they took the picture
