    Finally! He arrives!
    24 years...24! I've been waiting 24 years for subtitles to this amazing sci-fi show. I can die happy now. Thanks CR! Now we need Mirrorman and Fireman next, please. Also, Megaloman and Ultraman 80 and...hmm, I think i'll not push my luck lol. Excellent show!

    A tale of the 70's most undeniably radical hero
    Do you enjoy watching Ultraseven? Is Seven your favorite Ultra Brother? Think Dan is a totally radical man?

    If so, this is the series for you. Behold, as your favorite hero Seven is now getting his leg horrifically twisted in a 1:4 battle! As you crawl into a corner and cry, Seven is now dead- oh wait, he's saved by a new guy in town. His name is Leo and he tries to be awesome, with emphasis on ...

    The third part of a virtual god-send
    Ultraman Leo, Ultraman Mebius and Ultraman Max on CR is something of a revelation for Ultraman fans who had to rely on fansubs of all three for years. The fact that this is all done with the consent of Tsuburaya Productions itself is even better, showing proof that they are always willing to cross the Pacific given the opportunity. Thank you so much Tsuburaya and Crunchyroll for giving us this ...

    Fantastic! Ultraman Leo remastered and subtitled!
    Over the years I've seen Ultraman Leo fansubbed and Japanese audio with no subs. While I understand some of the language seeing these official subbed episodes makes me very happy.
    The main problem with this show was that back in the day, the budget was not as great as it was for previous Ultra series and at times the special FX tend to reflect that. However an interesting strength about the ...

    I had to wait 40 years for this!
    I grew up on english dubbed orig. Ultraman and few scraps of Ultra 7. Long have I wanted to see the other shows (in orig japanese subbed of course) and Leo didn't disappoint. This one has become my favorite of the Ultras I've now seen (Ultra Q, Ultraman, Ultra 7, Ultraman 80 & Ultraman Mebius). It's darker nature, re-telling of Japanese classics, and flat out trippy episodes make it's low ...

    A different kind of Ultra show
    Interesting entry here, though one I'm enjoying so far. A lot more focus on Gen's training and growth than on the sci-fi high-concepts of Ultraman/Ultraseven or fantasy whimsy of Taro. And a great idea to bring back Dan/Ultraseven as a mentor figure. The series can be pretty intense in some episodes...in any case, the model/miniature work is fantastic, as is standard for Tsuburaya.

    Way ahead of its time
    It was bold on the part of Tsuburaya to attempt a series like Leo, a deliberate about-face from the light, colorful kiddie fare of Taro. Today, tortured heroes are all the rage. But Leo was one of the first of his kind, a lonely warrior tormented by guilt, grief, and an underlying fear that he isn't up to the task of saving Earth. Grim, gory, and genuinely gripping, Ultraman Leo remains one of the ...

    One of the first Japanese deconstructions..
    Nowadays, deconstructions are fairly popular. Many anime, from Evangelion to Madoka have taken this trope.

    Leo is one of the originals. It deconstructs the toku/transforming hero genre as a whole, before deconstructing was cool.

    The biggest drawback is the poor budget, which shows very often. Despite that, the show gives a very realistic vibe. You will cry.

    I wholly suggest ...

    Classic Showa Era Tokusatsu
    Having watched the original Ultraman series on syndicated UHF television as a kid back in the 70's, nothing makes me happier than watching a hero beat up rubber monsters. Dubbed or subbed tokusatsu is hard to find, with only a handful of fan subbed episodes in circulation, so Crunchyroll offering these series is like a dream come true. Ultraman Leo, in particular, is one of the rarer Ultra ...

  • shadow of the big one
    when i watched ultraman as a kid i had no idea that ultraman could come so far. ultraman leo represents the culmination of everything ultraman has stood for, from previous ultramen and to future ultramen as well. When i saw ultraman attack the green alien i was transported in my mind to those days of my childhood watching ultraman grow large to fight evil.
