Ultraman is a Japanese superhero who has been getting a lot of attention lately in the US. Crunchyroll has been streaming the older episodes and now Viz Media has licensed the manga that acts as a sequel to original TV series, to attract old and new fans alike. And it’s finally out this week!
Ultraman has been in a bit of a revival with the many incarnations of the TV series coming to DVD and streaming on Crunchyroll. This manga is a sequel to the first TV series, and just started in 2011, effectively updating the 1960s series for a 21st century audience. I’m really looking forward to seeing it later this summer.
