    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!

    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 ...

    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.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    I love Ultraman and toku!
    Ultraman Orb is fun so far. I'm so happy to see toku series on Crunchyroll and hope to get more. In the meantime I'll watch Ultraman Orb every week because it's fun, the effects are great and I love the chemistry between the actors. If you're interested in watching this I would recommend watching a few other Ultraman series first, since this is an anniversary series.

    A Step Up For The Ultra Series
    After the great time that I had with Ultraman X, I wondered how in the world Ultraman Orb was going to match or top it. Three episodes in, it's not only matched it, but it's upped the ante. A lot lighter in comparison, Orb has been some of the most fun I've had with a tokusatsu series this season. It's a fresh spin on the franchise with subtle bits of fanservice/easter eggs, and an ongoing ...

    Really Fun and Charming, So Far
    I love tokusatsu superheroes, but haven't watched much Ultraman in the past--this was definitely a pleasant surprise. I love how well this well-shot, CGI-laden show is also 100% unembarrassed to use the classic fake buildings and suits.

    Hope this leads to more tokusatsu getting legit releases in the U.S., too.

    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.
