The new TV series Ultraman Trigger is set to start broadcasting on July 10th, Ultraman Day, on the TV Tokyo Network in Japan. At 5 PM every Thursday we will release the latest information about the series and its main cast!
Today we’ll be introducing the combat mech of expert team GUTS-SELECT, the Multipurpose Unmanned Convertible Droader “GUTS Falcon”; as well as the specialist Himari Nanase, who pilots the mech remotely with her VR goggles and controller from the mobile mothership Nursedessei.
Chosen to play the role of Himari is Meiku Harukawa!
Do any of our fans remember her? In the 2014 TV series Ultraman Ginga S, she played Hiyori, one of the survivors of the outcast Victorians, and gave us an impressive action scene alongside protagonists Hikaru and Sho in episode 6. Yes, it’s that very same Meiku Harukawa. Please stay tuned to view this cool beauty once more as she returns to the Ultraman series as part of the main cast!
■The Multipurpose Unmanned Convertible Droader “GUTS Falcon”
A combat mech docked aboard the mobile mothership of expert team GUTS-Select, the Nursedessei. Himari, who holds the title of “Falcon Specialist”, pilots it remotely from the Nursedessei’s bridge. It is a specialist convertible mech with two forms; the “flight mode” is its standard aircraft form for flying quickly to the field, and the chassis converts into “hyper mode” for combat against monsters low in the air or on-land.
■ Himari Nanase (26 years old)
An operations specialist who controls the combat mech GUTS Falcon. A cool beauty who looks great in glasses, she is always calm and collected. A woman of few words, she gets on with her tasks silently with a look of indifference. However, the moment she sits in the control chair of the GUTS Falcon and dons her VR goggles her personality drastically changes, and we see a glimpse of a passionate fire that is the opposite of her day-to-day persona.

<Comments from the Actress>
Ginga S taught me the most fundamental point of filming, that “the camera mustn’t stop just for you”.
7 years since then, moving from underground to the control room, I’ve come back again to the world of Ultraman! I’m Meiku Harukawa, and I will play Himari Nanase, the operator of the GUTS Falcon. From the rather unique position of the control chair, I will have a very, very exciting challenge ahead of me. I have no doubt whatsoever that this will be an exciting story which will develop its characters (and monsters) to show not only the coolness of its heroes, but also highlight the tenderness and the charm of its characters too. I will do my best to get on board both the Falcon, and also on board with fan’s hopes for the series!
