Every Single Ultraman Series Is Making Its Way to the United States
How much Ultraman do you want? All of it? Well, good news.

Scifi Japan reports that Mill Creek Entertainment has licensed a new deal with Tsuburaya Productions—the stewards of the legendary Ultra Tokusatsu series since it first began in 1966—to begin distributing every single Ultra show and film, both physically and digitally, in the US.

And it's available for pre-order..... Ultra Q and Ultraman

Nothing about the likes or R/B or Taiga coming by.
Introducing Keisuke Watanabe to a notable voice actor of Freeza & a TTRPG player/actress is likely my crowning achievement in 2020.

It's all dependent on the release schedule.

So is this a Netflix kinda thing where EVERYTHING is going up at once or is it a Shout factory type thing where they're gonna steadily go a season at a time over the course of many years?

Zeta Gundam, you want to keep releasing R/B until we're told not to anymore? It'd be a shame to throw away the work we already did so far, plus I think we could probably finish releasing it before it got released in the states anyway.

Given the vast library of Ultraman shows and movies, I have to assume that it's going to be gradual

According to SciFiJapan, the marketing VP said they'll “bring the Ultraman catalog to North American audiences through a multi-faceted release model... in tandem with the classic series, we will also be releasing the more recent series and films to appease fans of both classic and modern Ultraman.” Looks like they're going for their own order of release? Either way, this is amazing news; I recall I was quite annoyed when Crunchyroll offered its Ultraman series solely through streaming, so it's a relief to see we'll also be seeing physical releases.
