Alien Pedant – Character Profile
(Voice Actor: Junichi Suwabe)
The leader of Dark Star, an alien terrorist group responsible for causing and throwing the world into perpetual fear. The group threatens to continue its campaign of terror unless its harrowing demands are met: the disappearance of half of the land on Earth, or the extinction of half of the world’s population.
[Comment from Junichi Suwabe: Voice of Pedant Alien]
Unfortunately, it looks like once again I will not be on the side of justice and peace. That being the case, I will try with all my might and do my best to conquer Earth.
I am an alien of very refined taste, you see, and I would greatly appreciate your support.

[Director Kenji Kamiyama]
We are currently working diligently on production of Season 2, and it’s looking to be even more interesting than the first season. There’s more action, more ULTRAMAN allies come onto the scene, and I’m confident the story developments will have you hooked. Please look forward to Season 2.
[Director Shinji Aramaki]
We are finally close to deliver Season 2 to you. All our staff are coming together and working hard, so there won’t be long to wait. Season 2 is looking to be brimming with action as the differing personalities of the six Ultra heroes ULTRAMAN, SEVEN, ACE, JACK, ZOFFY, and now TARO come together. You will get to see it from Spring next year and we hope you’re excited for Season 2.
[Composers Nobuko Toda x Kazuma Jinnouchi]
We are very happy to be tasked with producing music for Season 2 after being part of Season 1. We’ve written many tracks for the long-awaited Season 2. We hope you are excited for the Season 2 theme song which embodies the passion, kindness, and conviction of the ULTRAMAN heroes.
