Ultraman Ginga 05 released

So here we are, the second-to-last episode of the first half of the series.

Last episode's preview confused the hell out of me about Jean-Killer's pilot. Here once again, evil is targeting Hikaru's friends. We're also tapping into the back story of the final main character - Ichijouji Tomoya. What does he want? What is he after?

Oh, Hikaru... don't you know that when you're talking about something secretive, the one you wish to keep the secret from is always standing behind.

It's kind of scary what Kenta want to do while under the influence of the spark of darkness.

And a dark hero appears after an epic fight, leading into next episode's climax!


Fun fact:

Because our translator zeta made a comment "wth" to Alien Valkie saying "It's magic!" when Kemurloid made himself disappeared, we went and googled the phrase for fun, and found something interesting.

In another show also produced by Tsuburaya Productions, the Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad (the American adaption of Denkou Choujin Gridman). In episode 46, the episode title is also "It's Magic", and it's about some magic act of disappearing into syberspace using a curtain.

With this and the reference to Emergency Directive 10-4・10-10 in episode 3, it seems that this show's not only paying tribute to past Ultraman shows, but it also tries to reference some other shows produced by Tsuburaya Productions as well.

And Kenta doesn't even end up changing. Hikaru gets his ass handed to him again.

And Dark Taiga is around to ruin everyones day.

Glad to see Dark Tiga suit again. They used it in exactly one movie and a total of less than 20 minutes before ditching it again. And still showed no other power of Tiga Dark than a few beam spams.

SpoilerShow
Well, at least the word is Hikaru will be able to use the Tiga doll and fight Tyrant later

I Wonder why Hikaru never change his outfit since episode 1 until now. Is this series really run with low budget? But JeanKiller sure kind of cool prespective Mecha Robot ally in this series.

Is he ever going to be able to transform into other ultras eventually? or will they veto that specific power in lieu of team-ups instead?

Oh, I finally got it. Ginga Slash looks like Gaia's Photon Edge and Agul's Photon Crusher.

The first few press releases talked about Ginga commemorating the 50th Ultra Anniversary, sounding absolutely silly since this is the 47th Ultra Anniversary. But then it began to make sense since Zero, first debuting in 2009, was kept in the limelight for three to four years, before Ginga came along. I guess we'll see more of Ginga until 2016, and then he'll have all the Ultra capabilities. Ginga is supposed to be the Gokaiger/Decade of Ultraman, so yes, he'll become other Ultras.

One thing that I've noticed is that Ginga himself doesn't seem to have a consciousness like all the other Ultras. Ultras can also survive longer than 3 minutes in space, the limit is only imposed on Eatrth, but Ginga can't seem to survive longer than 3 minutes in space. There isn't even a record of him (like Gosei Knight) My guess is that he's just a "collection" of the powers of all the other Ultras, kept as a line of defense should they all be defeated someday. Hikaru being human, with no Ultra links, is probably going to become the first earth-born HUMAN Ultra (Gaia and Agul are from Earth, but are not human, they merged with humas) who will 'become' Ginga in time for the 50th anniversary.

On to the episode, the Hikaru-Kenta clashes are pretty Gentarou-ish, but not to the same level since these people have been friends before. Have you been taking inspiration from Toei, Tsuburaya? Or is there an alliance between the two (Think Ultraman vs Kamen Rider in 1993), since Baltan showed up in Otsu? Ginga action seems to be pretty mediocre, just a bit better than the overseas-produced Great and Powered (the most underfunded Ultra series EVER) from Australia and USA respectively. Is his suit THAT fragile because of his shiny crystal plates?

It seems like once they introduced the time limit on Ginga, suddenly we have much less time.

We seem to be building to a climax already. But what the mysterious villain is after is really unclear. At this point is he just trying to destroy Ginga?

I believe Ultraman Ginga is the 50th anniversary of Tsuburaya Productions, not the Ultraman series
