    A Very Different Kind Of Ultraman
    I saw this series awhile back. It is definitely dark and kind of reminded me of Dekaranger. Both shows are very good and very grim at times. Nexus dealt with a very different kind of Ultraman than what we are used to. I was very happy to see him(her) make an appearance in X.

    Nexus: A breath of fresh air
    Nexus takes the Ultra Series in an entirely different direction, and after the overly-long hippy childish Ultraman Cosmos (enjoyable despite its flaws), it feels like a breath of fresh air.

This is not ...

  • An Excellent Ultra series
    While it takes some time to really get interesting Ultraman Nexus ends up being a great Ultraman series. If you don't already know, it's a much darker series aimed at older audiences and has many unique aspects such as the protagonist not being the one who turns into Ultraman. Overall I definitely recommend it.

    Nothing worth telling your friends about
    With the high praise from many outlets, I expected Nexus to be knock-your-socks-off from start to finish, however I could not have been more disappointed. Nexus attempts to do what few toku series can pull off (a full-season story) yet gets lost within its own mess. In front of the season-long story the series has shorter story arcs that could have been interesting had every single one not ...
