8 Ultramen Announced  
Busy Mebius news week. Per the April Terebi-kun, we have which 8 Ultramen will be in the new movie. A picture is here, but in summary it will be:

Ultraman, UltraSeven, Jack, and Ace representing the Showa Ultramen,


Tiga, Dyna, Gaia, and Mebius representing the Heisei ones.

Sorry, Agul. Sorry, Hikari. We're going blue-light this movie.

No mention of Zoffy or Tarou appearing.

*heads back to translating summary of Armored Darkness* Translation will be posted on the Fushigichan comm.

Woot, finally! :D But awwwww, c'mon, Gaia just tastes better with Agul and Mebius is so much more delicious with Hikari.

That came out sounding all wrong.

...gotta head to Nicovideo and check out these Mebius Gaiden...

Cool. They look good. :D And gee, that Ultraman pose. Gotta love it. Always reminds me of that Seinfeld commercial in which the thief tosses the TV at Superman and Superman just stands there with hands on hip. When asked why he didn't just catch the TV, he said, 'cause I don't do that, I do this. Is it TDG's ultimate forms? Hm. But I suppose this will give them a good opportunity to pass on the torch. First movie was more like regaining the torch since they'd been hanging out at Kobe as humans for 20 years. Though the 3 Heisei guys have already done their land, sea, and air battle.

Is it Zamusha? Is he the one we think is dead who picks up the Armor of Darkness?

My word, you are dogged on this. No, it's not Zamusha. :)
Cirdancirdan_havens on March 2nd, 2008 06:49 pm (UTC)
Rats. Ah well. He did seem rather dead, and it might be weird for him to get an armor other than his samurai armor.

Well, one must pass the time somehow, right? O:) And I assume it might be someone humanoid so no Dinozaurs. :O It's not Bogal again, is it? (So much for humanoid.) I have to admit, like you said, killing the main bad guy by ep 10 was rather a surprise. Hm, but Bogal looked rather dead to me... !! Ah ha! Mefilas?
Sandpanthersandpanther on March 2nd, 2008 08:44 pm (UTC)
Getting warmer. It is part of a former foursome.

(What? If it's a way to pass the time then I wouldn't want to spoil the fun too fast. Though I have posted the answer somewhere already, if you want to go looking for it. :)

Foursome you say? My, that just sounds naughty. Guess it works since there's four bros. Can't have Zoffy show up. Maybe pentagons don't look good so Tarou gets left out?

I think the movie 4 were cool for nostalgia but dated so they played that out really well. It's not Mefilas. Grozer being of ice and cold, seems at odds with Empera's fiery evilness. I forgot Deathrem's name and was going to call him Jack's enemy, but yeah, I think his neck is too long for him to fit well into an Armor of Darkness. For that matter, Grozer's head would be a little odd for that helmet. I did think his attacks pretty cool though. Poor Mebius! That sort of leaves Yapool. If it's true that the Emperans fought with the Ultran some 25-30k years ago and maybe even occupied the Land of Light for a while, then maybe Yapool does make sense since he talks about how they're a race born out of darkness, and, well, it's an Armor of Darkness. Makes me wonder if they would since Yapool might be recurring too much if that's the case, but if he's the threat of this particular 25k years, then he is and look, there he is again. And really, though he is the man behind the U-killersaurus, his presence was peripheral enough that his appearance in Mebius felt entirely new.

I always thought the whole bit with Tarou thinking protecting earth would be a job better suited for his youngest brother meant that they were blood brothers, not just Ultra brothers. So I thought originally that Tarou ending the first Yapool war might imply Mebius ends the second. For that matter, they're still the only two who could do the Ultra Charge you said with the whole 6-in-1. So maybe if all storylines are supposed to link together, then maybe it'd link there. Yapool sent Mebius to that AU where he thought everyone was dead. Maybe he could AU the TDG to our world? Try to set Ultra kyoudai (USJA?) against the TDG Ultra kyoudai 'cause I know they were referred to as kyoudai in that one movie they were all in. And takes the Armor too so he can show up the movie or not depending on how they link things in. Hm, Dyna's got Mars in his series so maybe Hiroto Ban and the Neo Frontier that's Mars can come into this all too. Or not. Might just be coincidence.

I know, everything's random speculation and I find it rather ridiculous for the Transformer 2 movie, but that's because we have very little to work off of. Somehow, since Mebius and TDG are the main characters, feels like they might bring in a "foursome" here too? One enemy per series? The Showa 4 being there mostly so Mebius can change forms like the other three? Reading Gaia, it seemed that bringing Zogu back would almost be a natural thing to do since she takes angel form and dragon/centaur. Especially the angel thing. *rolls eyes* People are so fond of angels and her belief that humans are a danger to the universe and should be eradicated certainly goes along with all the other evil enemies. Hm, Dyna's main guy Shin Asuka sounds like he'd get along with Mirai really well. But if you've done land, sea, and air, they'd need a different theme entirely for the 4. Oh, hm. I just thought of something. If they want even more toys (and they always do), maybe they'll also have one Showa combine with one Heisei instead of just the 4 combining into Mebius. All four have already had evil copies of themselves. Tiga's evil Ultramen friends seem pretty cool but don't know if they can be reused. Maybe new evil Ultramen? Again, there's 4 of them before evil Tiga becomes a good guy. I have no clue how old the others are, but I feel like they're older than Mebius. Not sure if that means it should be Mebius matched with Ultraman or Tiga matched with Ultraman. If the former, then Tiga can be matched up with Seven, the first with his spark lens the second his Ultra eye except that spark lens doesn't look all that much like lens. The latter would just make his spark lens more analogous to the beta capsule.

Sorry, got darn rambly there. Couldn't help it. Just pondering overall, I suppose.

Too sleepy right now to sort it out. For now, just going to say:

You're getting the movie and the OVA confused.

... and ...

There's more than one foursome in Mebi continuity.

Really? I didn't know that. I'm curious who make up the other foursome then.
Sandpanthersandpanther on March 4th, 2008 06:13 am (UTC)
Think first movie.
Nikki's Cornersennetari on March 4th, 2008 06:34 am (UTC)
Oh, thanks! I forgot all about those guys. Unlike the TV series foursome, who work individually, two of those guys work together so I kind of thought of them as one.
