"Character Show" featuring popular anime/tokusatsu characters played by suit actors on stage is very popular entertainment in Japan. It is sometimes used for attracting customers to the unrelated events. Ultraman Max, one of the popular tokusatsu Ultra heroes, appeared at a small housing event in my local area this weekend.
Ultraman Max is a Tsuburaya Production's Ultraman TV series which started airing on 7 July 2005. He appeared with a female MC on stage twice (10:00 am and 2:00 pm) on Saturday, March 3. Even though Max is not the newest series, the kids were so happy to meet the ultraman face to face. Another Ultra hero Ultraman Cosmos was scheduled to come with his rival Alien Vultan on the next day, but the show was canceled because of heavy rain unfortunately.
