    Really fun introduction!
    This is a really fun introduction to Ultraman! Even after a couple of episodes, the effects are fantastic and the SSP are super fun to watch. I love how the main character is polite and respectful of his previous Ultraman senpai and just chill with everything. The SSP are a fun rag-tag team; and even the villain gives the right amount of mystery and creepiness without making it feel gross. Highly ...

    Ultraman Orb is a worthy Ultra
    I've been a fan of Ultraman for a while now and I can always tell when a series is going to be great. Orb is one of them. We can already tell that the writers are planting story seeds with good payoffs down the line, and they're connected to Gai's mysterious past.

    The direction so far is also solid, which is to be expected after Taguchi's work on X. Creative fight scenes with good miniature ...

    Revitalizing the Franchise
    Ultraman Orb is taking the Ultra Series in a new and different direction, while still holding on to its 50-year-old roots. In one episode a very interesting premise has set up, and it is already the most promising tokusatsu of the year. Check it out!

    Looking forward to getting some answers
    It's a pretty fun show so far. The characters are quirky and the villain is definitely a mystery. There seems to be some connection between the hero and the villain and some allusions to the hero actually being more of a threat than the villain. It'll be fantastically interesting to see the show play out. As someone who hasn't seen a ton of Ultraman, I really appreciate the craft that goes into ...

    Taking Old Things in a New Direction
    It's an interesting take on the staples of the series. For the big anniversary, Ultraman is giving the viewer a lot of the usual character types but changing how they function dramatically. The show is integrating a fantastic mysterious into the story from the very first story that only keeps building.

    Ultraman Orb - Hyped for 50 More Years
    Really great showing for the big guy's 50th anniversary. Enjoyable cast and incredible daikaiju action. Sure, there's a bit of commercialization with the cards or whatever, but it's a minor gripe and it pays the bills for those great fight sequences.

    Nails the human scale, excels at giant scale
    A terrific, unique, and very welcome entry in the Ultra series, Ultraman Orb has a tremendous focus on human-scale characters, interesting drama, and hilarious comedy. Showa tokusatsu vibe, with deft control of tone, both funny and serious.

    Really endearing hero, very funny supporting characters (the real stars of the show), and tremendously fun design / aesthetic. Cool ...

    Still larger than life, 50 years later
    Ultraman's 50th anniversary series has only just begun and hasn't seen a trip up yet. Ultraman normally delivers a wonderful enjoyable series snd Orb has so far shown that with references to old heroes and fun characters. Give it a shot, see if ya like it, even if you're not a fan of Tokusatsu, FUSION UP

    X you watched just to see the end this you'll watch cause it is random
    Ultraman Orb 5 points
    1. The introduction episode was great!
    2. We thought we were going to be eventually bored with the continued use of the card system, man were we wrong.
    3. Orb so far uses his fusions when necessary or to just them try them out.
    4.They got off centering around the Earth defense team so much.
    5.That gumshoe looking guy is in the show.(Seen him in the Masked/Kamen Rider ...

    Endearing characters and bombastic action make this a win!
    I've never watched a full Ultraman series before but have seen a number of bits and pieces trough out the years. This year I'm committing to watch the whole series of Orb, as the first three episode have been lots of fun with endearing and comedic characters and some big fight scenes. I'm excited to watch all the different permutations of Ultraman that the mysterious Gai goes through.
