The event ended with a high-five section with the casts, and Ultraman gummi candies were given out by Asahi for every visitor!
And here are the comments from each cast.
We started shooting in cold March, and then we also fought against the extreme heat in summer. All the members and staff worked very hard every single day, so I’m very glad to be able to share “ULTRAMAN R/B” with all of you now.
I would love everyone to liven up “ULTRAMAN R/B” and I hope I will have a chance to get to see you in shows and various events in the future again!
The show started in June, and this is my first time to appear in front of the audiences.
I was wondering how the viewers evaluate the show, but now I felt the “ULTRAMAN R/B passion” from you and realized the show is supported by a lot of people.
I hope everyone would continue supporting the Minato brothers and follow the growth of the family.
Everyone seemed to be enjoying the show more than I have expected and I was so overwhelmed with happiness!
Half a year has passed since the shooting started, and I’ve felt very accomplished. However, the show is still ongoing and I am very excited to see everyone’s reactions! Please stay in front of the TV on Saturday mornings at 9 am!
I hope everyone will cheer on Asahi as she keeps working hard!
I have been in love with Ultraman ever since the first “ULTRA Q” and “ULTRAMAN” series but I never thought I would be participating in the Ultraman series.
I hope this series would have a place in everyone’s hearts.
Now I have become Ultraman, a hero that I have been watching since I was a child.
I never thought I would ever be Ultraman, at this age.
The era of Aizen has come!
I was very nervous, since I joined in the show from the middle part, but the cast and staff members were all very supportive.
Saki Mitsurugi is a difficult character to play, but I think I have acted her out well. I hope everyone would look forward to seeing her in the TV screen!
Director Masayoshi Takesue:
“ULTRAMAN R/B” will become more and more exciting! I hope all of you would continue to support us!
