New Ultraman To Debut In Hero's Magazine Issue #1
From Gideon Buroguブログ comes news and images of a 'new' ULTRAMAN, and I cannot contain my excitement! Sure I love my classic Ultrman, but a mecha-designed suit looks pretty rad from where I'm looking, IMHO! Yes, I now want the TOY, and the animated MOVIE to happen NOW based on what I see here! LOL
The article mentions that the Ultraman will appear in "Hero's Magazine Issue #1 - due for a release in between late November and early December 2011. "The cover features manga that will be written based on the long lasting Tokusatsu series by Tsuburaya, the ever famous Gigantic Hero, ULTRAMAN. Alongside the Ultraman manga, 7 other new manga will also be published in the magazine."
"The Ultraman manga will be set into a much darker tone of the original storyline and is drawn in a "seinen" manga art style. The manga will be drawn by Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi, who are both famous for their work, "Linebarrel of Iron". The manga take place decades after the event of original Ultraman." ~blogged Gideon Burogu (Check out the stories synopsis here).
"…well I'm old school so while the design is neat it is not for me :- p I'm still a man in rubber suit type of guy haha!" ~answer from Mark Nagata (famed Ultraman Toys-enthusiast) when I asked him about the new design.What do YOU think of the new developments? :)
Posted here are more images culled from Hero Magazine's dedicated webpage. Here's praying someone translates them into English eventually. Hell, could anyone score me a copy or two of the magazine in the first place? PLEASE?
