So "George" and "Georgie" really do have the same pronunciation in Japanese. I'd wondered about that, but not sure.

I also like Commander Ishimuro so much. Not even really sure why, story-wise, since he's usually sitting or standing and not really out fighting. (Well, he does get involved in, imho, the most dramatic fight, but I like him long before that.) Maybe it's also because the unspoken pact he and Gamu seems to have going on regarding Gamu's secret identity ('don't ask, don't tell' kind of thing). And I really enjoy seeing his actor in a few other toku shows.

I'd heard before watching the series that Gamu got outted on TV, just not how.

Me too. However, I also knew exactly how (worse for me since I would rather not have spoilers). But I still liked that scene very much the first time I saw it and it remains my most favorite secret identity outing ever. (The secret outing in Mebius seems rather passive. I'm pretty sure if anyone else has seen Mirai transforming, he would still get to keep his secret.)

This one's weird, in that it's the only Ultraman series I've seen before where it's very clear that the Ultraman is separate from the human host.

I'm honestly curious why you believe that. Apart from episode 1 (and maybe 25?), I never really feel like Gaia is a separate entity.

I like Gamu because, apart from being a geek (which I also like), he seems so much like a normal human being. It feels to me like almost every host I've seen from the Showa Ultraman series is a hero and kind of larger-than-life. Gamu has doubts, is selfish where most everyone would, has tempers, makes mistakes, etc. To me, he is, to put simply, alive.

I'm kind of two minds about Fujimiya. On one hand, I think he should stop stealing Gamu's spotlight and just get his own show. On the other hand, it wouldn't be half as fun without him messing up things for Gamu to fix.

All in all, I'm glad to hear that you like Gaia, even if it took you almost two years to finally finished it. :)

...And hopefully I'm not being too forward in asking this, but would you consider subbing Gaia at some point in the future? It's totally fine if not, though. I was just wondering.
