This is the beginning of a new age and you better be ready to witness what is about to happen! Ultraman in the latest manga no longer grow to titan and inevitably destroy buildings while fight off alien monster. Let's take the fight to human size level with handsome looking human character donning the Ultraman suit just like Japanese version of Ironman.
Well, the suit still keep the original colour scheme of the original Ultraman but now a more mecha looking Ultraman. This reimagined Ultraman manga series is written by Eiichi Shimizu and drawn by Tomohiro Shimoguchi. It is a manga sequel of the 1966 Ultraman television series and has been collected in 10 volumes as of July 2017. Both of them are previously part of the creative team responsible for 'Linebarrels of Iron' (One for my favourite mecha anime of all time).
This best-selling manga series is expected to receive its anime treatment in 2019. Meanwhile, I'm glad that Volume 5 of the Japanese manga version comes with an exclusive Ultraman suit 5.5" PVC figure with neat paint works and nice chrome.
Smart strategy of boosting sale as fan like me would definitely buy though I don't understand the Japanese content manga nevertheless I did browse through the manga, trying to figure out the plot. No worries as the English version of the manga or comic is also available and can easily source on Ebay. I can't get this figure locally and like the exclusivity of this figure. I ended up paying a premium price which cost more than a posable Ultra Act figure of this Ultraman.
