Ultraman Mebius and Ultraman Brothers movie released

Post by zeta_gundam » Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:09 am

Yes, we finally released it! A big thanks to the QC team who worked on it.

Well, the good part about doing a show after the run on TV is that you can release stuff in a chronological (production/viewing) order. The events of this movie occurs sometime between episodes 15 and 23. It's actually referenced in episode 24, which will be released in due course.

On to the movie proper... It starts off 20 years ago (sometime in 1986, since Mebius aired in 2006), where Ultraman, Seven, Jack and Ace fight off U-Killersaurus, after the events of the Ultraman 80 series. Fast forward 20 years, and someone seeks to revive the Yapool's ultimate chouju (literally "Super Beast"; choujus are weaponized, upgraded kaijus). Mebius sets off to Kobe to investigate the issue.

This is a typical Ultraman movie scenario. Nothing fanciful, no plot twists etc. Basically, main character goes off to fight baddie, baddie wins the first time around, main character gets dejected but learns from defeat, main character wins the battle. It's a simple movie that contains a heart-warming story. It's a family movie - parents who grew up with the Showa Ultramen will definitely feel a sense of nostalgia when watching the movie, kids will be able to enjoy the story too as it's that simple. It does help that one of the key focus of the movie is on a kid too.

You have a heart-warming story, and you have the original actors for Ultraman, Seven, Jack and Ace reprising their roles. What's there to dislike about it? So sit back, and enjoy the movie!

I think the best part of this movie is that abare yellow is in this movie. :D O and seeing all the old ultra actors again. just sad that leo, astra and 80 is not in this movie. :( but overall it's a pretty fun movie to watch, it's very fast paced that doesn't keep me bored, very simple storyline with no need to over analyze. and it's sad that mebius infinity only appears in this movie, if mebius infinity is all seven ultra brothers, i wonder what's gonna happen if leo, astra, 80 and hikari fuses with mebius. :?:

I've been watching other Heisei Ultraman movies (including Tiga, Zero, others). And yet it's still a good movie. I like how Mirai has not giving up and become Mebius again. Yup! Yapool is from 20 years ago and I can say that he is the strongest kaiju that ever fought against the Ultra Brothers.

I can say that Ultraman Mebius is the "ultimate form"? :lol: I see... the Ultra Brothers with Taro and Zoffy fused with Mebius. But how could that be?

Finally, i can see the casts of the Ultraman series reunited during the 40th Anniversary. Why is the Ultramens are wearing their formal outfits?

So the actress of AbareYellow is a part of the cast? Yup. and Yapool is actually the voice of Gorisaki Banana (Go-Busters).

Again... it's a GOOD movie, just like Chou Ultra 8 Brothers.

As a long time Ultraman fan, I have no words of appreciation for you guys for translating this. There are too little Ultraman English subs out there.
As per the movie, it was the quintessential Ultraman flick. The plot is simple, with the typical A plot of alien invasion and B plot with a kid growing in some way. It was nice to see the older actors return for this film and later in TV. Digging Temperor, Guts, Knackles, and Zarab out of the closet was also a nice touch
SpoilerShow
which parallels The Four Heavenly Kings in Mebius
, and Temperor's new suit looks much better/sinister than the original goofy one. Even the plot are similar: Temperor just barges in like in Taro, only this time it didn't work. Zarab uses a disguise and imitates Ultraman, just like in original Ultraman and later appearances. Knackles and Guts use their brains to study and wear out Mebius and seals him in a cross, just like in Seven and Jack.
As per the heroes, the updated rise was nice, though I felt goofy. The scene where the four old ones recount their own trials and tribulations were really touchingly nostalgic, especially the part where Goh recount the death of Aki. Have to say though, when I first saw the film, I was expecting something to save Ultramen, but I didn't see Taro and Zoffy coming.
The 40th anniversary dinner, man, that was real heartwarming to see all the old actors to get together again, mostly the others like Fuji, Annu, and mostly Yuuko.
SpoilerShow
Gen, Yamato, and Abare Yellow do return later in Mebius, so rest assured. Hikari and Mebius fusion...hehehehehehe~



Just for fun:
From other sources, apparently there was an epic crossover sequel planned named tentatively Mebius and Ultraman Brothers 2, with the plot revolving around Higashi Kotaro, Taro's human host who willingly separated with Taro at the show's end. It would see the return of Leo, 80, Yullian, as well as Kotaro recombining with Taro. Supposedly U-Killersaurus would be revived by some devious yet not named alien for a dimensional crisis. Besides Mebius Infinity
SpoilerShow
and Phoenix
, Cosmos and Justice will cross over to form Legend again along with Noa for ass-kicking.
That's the draft anyway, which never got to be seen because Tsuburaya went broke, so it'd forever remain a beautiful "what could have been" like Nexus' Dark Lucifer.

Nice touch by adding the Ultra-Act promo pics as the opening splash.

It's a good movie and they definitely chose some of the funnest/toughest aliens from the ultra series to come back and try to wake up yapool, and that with the exception of temperor seijin all of them had actually managed to capture an ultra, I mean sure Zarab technically caught Hayata but still.
I've been watching other Heisei Ultraman movies (including Tiga, Zero, others). And yet it's still a good movie. I like how Mirai has not giving up and become Mebius again. Yup! Yapool is from 20 years ago and I can say that he is the strongest kaiju that ever fought against the Ultra Brothers.
Gotta disagree with you on that one, Zetton's the only monster to ever actually kill an ultra, sure some may have come close and some may have beaten an ultra but in the end Zetton is still the only one to actually score the kill.

Alien Hipporit made the Ultra brothers into bronze statues, so that's like a kill.
Birdon, the testicle-peak from ep. 3, legitimately killed both Taro and Zoffy in the original Taro. The original footage is even in that episode.
Snowgon technically smashed Jack into pieces, but that is a kill.
Tiga is technically dead.

Tiga wasn't 'killed' in the conventional sense per se, I would think.

Tiga's debatable. With him the spark lance turned to dust in the final episode but at the same time in the movie Daigo get's it back and is never exactly shown losing it, plus it still being in one piece would explain how he managed to find his way back to japan when right before that he was on a sunken island with no way out.

Maybe. I dunno yet. Anything outside of Mebius and Ginga is for later consideration. These two are top priority.
