<Comments from the cast members>


【Ryohei Kimura】(voice actor for Shinjiro Hayata)
Thank you for waiting! Season 2 is packed with intense episodes. Please look forward to the 6 ULTRAMAN heroes and their dynamic action!


Takuya Eguchi】(voice actor for Dan Moroboshi)
It’s been a while since Season 2 was announced, and we finally got started. We’re more than ready. Recording is already finished, and the action in this series already looks to be incredible. I have complete confidence it’s going to be so cool, I can’t wait to see the finished product. As for Moroboshi, you can expect to see many appearances from him… Look forward to it!


Megumi Han】(voice actor for Seiji Hokuto)
“It’s Here, Our New Hero/Era!”
At the beginning of the Reiwa era, I distinctly remember seeing these words in the newspapers. Two years since then, there have been many changes, and I hope the return of ULTRAMAN will be of great support to you all. We also welcome new characters, Hokuto and ACE, to the fight.


【Hideyuki Tanaka】(voice actor for Shin Hayata)
The long awaited season 2 begins. I intend to play my part as the man who passes the baton to the next generation, supporting them as much as possible. You can expect many new developments in Season 2. “I’m Ultraman too!”


Ryota Takeuchi (voice actor for Jack)
Hello ULTRAMAN fans! Did you see the new teaser poster? In the line-up, there’s one ULTRAMAN with a big frame… In season 1, Jack moved in the shadows gathering information, and the last we saw he had nabbed the alien engineer Yapool. How intriguing… and now it’s season 2.
You can’t not be excited! I’m taking this excitement into my acting to see that Jack’s charm comes across to fans all over the world even more than before!


Tomoaki Maeno】(Voice actor for Kotaro Higashi)
 I’m Tomoaki Maeno, who will be playing the role of Kotaro Higashi.
The Ultraman series is loved by many, but personally Taro was always my favorite.
I remember vividly the scene when he was attacked by Birdon, and I can still sing the first two verses of the opening song.
While I’m still new to this series’ Kotaro Higashi, he is a pure and passionate man that everyone will be invested in.
I will do my best in post-recording to bring out the best of Kotaro Higashi, and to work alongside Ryohei, and the other brilliant cast and staff members. I hope you look forward to watching Season 2.


【Shigeru Ushiyama】(voice actor for Edo)
Edo is constantly surrounded in mystery. He barely talks, and doesn’t do anything to stand out. Just what is he doing as a member of the SSSP? And just what is his relationship to the Star Cluster Council?… Now, in the long-awaited Season 2, just what will happen, and what will we find out… Stay tuned!


【Ken Uo】 (voice actor for Mitsuhiro Ide)
When I ask myself what is peace, recently I find the answer is living your everyday life.
The warriors of light are fighting again today to protect that everyday life! The Ultraman party gained a new member and became more powerful, and of course so did the SSSP too.Personally, in this season I went into the recording while feeling the power of the Nihei factor, Ide’s original actor.
So once again, with your big screen and volume high, please enjoy this ULTRA world!


【Kaiji Soze】 (voice actor for Bemular)
I’m so happy to work with the ULTRAMAN team again. I’m jumping for joy.
I’m also immensley grateful to be able to play the part of the aloof warrior Bemular for so long, and I want to bring out even more of his mysterious persona.
Season 2 also has a chaotic twist. I’m getting excited with you all!


Kenjiro Tsuda(voice actor for Adad)
I’m really happy that I can play my beloved character Adad once more.
I’m honoured to participate in a powerful work like ULTRAMAN, whose world view was well-received globally, and continues to develop even now.
Please continue to support Adad, and the incredibly creative team behind ULTRAMAN season 2.


【Sumire Moroboshi 】(voice actor for Rena Sayama)
Following on from season 1, I’m very happy to play Rena again. I feel like we’re going to see her and Shinjiro quickly close the distance between them, and see a new step in their relationship.This series is powered-up from the last, so please look forward to it!


【Minoru Shiraishi】(voice actor for Shiraishi)
Finally, after all that waiting, season 2 starts!
Just what kind of action awaits the ULTRAMAN heroes in this season? It’s something to look forward to!
As Rena’s manager… Will I have a big part to play?….
