Good news for Ultraman fans today, as Ultraman Russo and Ultraman Bull have been unveiled, each with multiple forms. Seen in the scans below, Ultraman Russo and Ultraman Bull each have Aqua, Flame, Wind, and Ground forms, but details on the overall plot are lacking at this time. You can see the designs for the new Ultraman characters below, as well as each of their four forms.
The information comes via Twitter user @Erasu, who goes into great detail about which Ultraman is which, and what their forms are for.
Personally, I am very excited to see what the new season will bring to the franchise, especially given the earlier rumours that the new Ultraman will be the son of Ultraman Taro. Which one will it be? Or are they, perhaps, brothers? It will be very interesting to see what other information comes out as we get closer to the premiere.
Ultraman 2018 still does not have an official title, though it will likely be named for one of the two characters we have just seen. If tradition holds, Tsuburaya will likely license the new series to Crunchyroll for streaming in territories outside of Japan. Look for it to premiere later this year.
