In the late 90’s, there were 3 Ultraman series that made a paradigm shift in the history of Ultraman.
They were Ultraman, but not like the ones before.
Why were they able to create a new history?
It was the story, world image, characters, and of course the thoughts and hearts of the creators…
We want to continue and recreate these emotions with books, goods, events and all sorts of entertainment.
This is the “TDG Project.”
The main visual is newly created by Hiroshi Maruyama, who was the designer for “ULTRAMAN TIGA”, “ULTRAMAN DYNA”, and “ULTRAMAN GAIA”.
To congratulate the official launch of the “TDG Project”, from “ULTRAMAN GAIA”, Takeshi Yoshioka who played Gamu Takayama and Hassei Takano who played Hiroya Fujimiya held a talk show event on November 30 (Fri) at “Tokyo Comic Con 2018” at Makuhari Messe. The fans were very excited for this event.
Many events and new goods will also be launching.
