Ultraman, and the anime series Mr. Osomatsu, which first aired in Oct. 2015 earning wide acclaim, and is now in its second season; both share a common theme of six brothers, naturally leading them to an ultra-collaboration!
Set in the world of Mr. Osomatsu’s fictional “Akatsuka Ward” in the city of Tokyo, what lengths will the Ultra-Matsu brothers go to protect their peaceful lives as NEETs?
Mr. Osomatsu’s character designer, Naoyuki Asano, created the character illustrations for this new collaboration. It features the eldest brother, Osomatsu as Zoffy （Osomatsu-Zoffy）, second born Karamatsu as Ultraman （Karamatsu-Man）, third born Choromatsu as Ultraseven （Choromatsu-Seven）, fourth born Ichimatsu as Ultraman Jack （Ichimatsu-Jack）, fifth born Jyushimatsu as Ultraman Ace （Jyushimatsu-Ace）, and youngest brother Todomatsu as Ultraman Taro （Todomatsu-Taro）. The six brothers each wear an Ultraman-themed hoodie, and strike distinct Ultra Beam poses.
In addition, the famous strong supporting characters in Mr. Osomatsu have been transformed into Kaiju from the world of Ultraman for the new collaboration. Iyami, Totoko, Dayon, Chibita, and Hatabo, respectively, are fused with Alien Baltan, King Joe, Kanegon, Jamila, and Pigmon, to create Iyami-Baltan, Totoko-King Joe, Dayon-Kanegon, Jami-ta, and Hata-mon. Illustrations of these characters in costume have also been released.
