Hello all!

We're sorry to announce that the following Ultraman will no longer be available on Crunchyroll due to licensing.

Starting on 10/14 at 8 a.m. PST, these Ultraman titles will be departing the service:

Ultraman Leo
Ultraman 80
Ultraman Max
Ultraman Mebius

Ultraman X will still be available. Thank you for understanding!

What about Orb/Geed? The wording "Ultraman X will still be available" makes it sound a bit confusing

I hope this isn't a sign that all the Ultraman licenses will be allowed to lapse soon. These tokusatsu shows add some welcome diversity to Crunchyroll's catalogue. It's been a dream come true having easy access to so many Ultraman series for these last few years.

NO! I missed my chance! I mean, Ultraman isn't really my thing anyway, but still! I wanted to support Toku on this site!

PLEASE, talk to Toei and try to get Kamen Rider and Super Sentai on here! They'd fit so perfectly! I'd be more than happy to suggest series to start off with!

Shou! Factory has the licenses to the various Super Sentai seasons that have been released legally on DVD here in America. So Sentai isn't coming to Crunchyroll anytime soon.

If the entire Ultraman franchise goes away, so will my subscription to this site, TBH.

VRV has the streaming rights to Zyuranger. Last I checked, VRV and Crunchyroll were very close business partners. Not that big of a stretch for some of the more modern Rider/Sentai to come to the site.

All good things come to a close, alas, but I had a good time with old school Ultraman here. Especially Leo. Permanently in my queue, and it will be missed.

Wow, I unsubscribed because they didn't simulcast Ultraman R/B and now there goes the only reason I was considering re-subbing. Great job.

Yeah, that still hurts. A part of me is hoping against hope that they’re just ‘holding it back’ until the show finishes in Japan.

And hey, we still have SSSS.Gridman, so the relationship with Tsuburaya’s not completely fraying.

If I recall, I wonder if some of the license lapsing is due to the recent lawsuit and/or settlement regarding international rights for certain Ultra titles. It's sad to see those older titles go in the end.
