A press conference for the new TV series “ULTRAMAN R/B”, which will be aired from July 7th, 2018, was held. The main cast and the new heroes “Ultraman Rosso” and “Ultraman Blu” were at the event, as well as a mysterious Ultraman. During the event, the anticipated opening and ending theme songs were also announced!
For the first time in the ULTRAMAN Series, the main characters are Brothers Ultraman. Besides Katsumi Minato (Ultraman Rosso), played by Yuya Hirata, and Isami Minato (Ultraman Blu), played by Ryosuke Koike, Asahi Minato, their little sister, played by Arisa Sonohara, Ushio Minato, their father, played by Ginnojo Yamazaki, Makoto Aizen, the CEO of Aizentech, played by Motoki Fukami, and Masayoshi Takesue, the main director, all appeared at the event.
When the cast and director were enthusiastically talking about the new series, legendary monster of Ayaka City “Grigio Bone” and “Black King” appeared at the event with a surprise!
While the whole venue was in a panic, Katsumi and Isami, placed their “R/B Crystal” into the transforming item “R/B Gyro” and transformed into “Ultraman Rosso” and “Ultraman Blu”, while calling out “Color me with your power! Ruebe!”
During the battle, Rosso and Blu changed their types by exchanging each other’s “Ruebe Crystal.”
One of the main features of Rosso and Blu is their weapon “R/B Slugger,” which appears from their heads. Rosso battles with two blades, while Blu battles with one sword.
By using their finishing attacks, “Flame Sphere Shoot” and “Aqua Strium,” Grigio Bone and Black King are repelled and peace is brought back to the event.
However, a mysterious Ultraman had appeared!
Who is that Ultraman…?!
Stay tuned for the newest “ULTRAMAN R/B” series starting soon.
