The official site for the 3D CG anime of Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi‘s Ultraman manga reported on Wednesday that creation on a 2nd season has been green-lit.
The declaration was first made at the 2019 Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France. The executives Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki and the animation studios Production I.G and Sola Digital Arts are coming back from the first season.
“Several years have passed since the events of Ultraman, with the legendary “Giant of Light” (光の巨人 Hikari no Kyojin) now a memory, as it is believed he returned home after fighting the many giant aliens that invaded the Earth. Shin Hayata’s son Shinjiro seems to possess a strange ability, and it is this ability, along with his father’s revelation that he was Ultraman, that leads Shinjiro to battle the new aliens invading the Earth as the new Ultraman.”
Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki coordinated the first anime season. Creation I.G and Sola Digital Arts delivered the anime in 3D CG. Nobuko Toda and Kazuma Jinnouchi created the music. OLDCODEX is played out the anime’s signature tune “Sight Over The Battle.”
