<Comments from the cast>
– Ryohei Kimura
My first reaction was “Am I really allowed to wear this?”
What I’m wearing is the real “ULTRAMAN” suit, designed and made by real professionals! As a voice actor, I’m very excited that I was able to wear this.
The anime ULTRAMAN not only has the essence of “live” acting which came from the performance of the motion actors, but also features unique expressions through animation, voices from the actors, sounds, and every other attributes that make this show special. I would love for everyone to watch!
– Takuya Eguchi
Now that you have seen episodes 1 and 2, I would love for the audience to watch the rest of the episodes.
– Megumi Han
I’m so fulfilled. I am so excited that from tomorrow everyone can see my favorite ULTRAMAN.
– Sumire Moroboshi
I’m very happy for this premiere. I’m jealous of those who were able to watch this high quality anime in such a big screen.
– Kenji Kamiyama Director
It had been a while since I worked with Kimura-san and Eguchi-san, but I love their voices (with laughter), so I was always excited for the recording. The recording was always fun and seemed as though they had been with the Ultraman team from a while ago. The team work was always great.
– Shinji Aramaki Director
I watched the screening from the second floor, and now I just couldn’t wait for the streaming to start myself.
I wish we could’ve screened more than just episodes 1 and 2, but because this was created with Kamiyama-san, I believe it was enough to enjoy.
The story will evolve even more with SEVEN, ACE, and Rena. Please enjoy them at the streaming.
★Streaming platforms in China has increased!
From April 2nd, ULTRAMAN will be available on platforms Youku, Tudou and Tmall Box.
