    Huh. It’s funny, Power Rangers/Super sentai and Kamen Rider/Masked Rider have at least SOME representation here in the west, and we’ve got some general understanding of the premise and what it’s usually all about, but Ultraman seems to be one of those tokusatsu things that just… never hit it big, over here. Anyone got any idea why that is? Also, is there anything to the Ultraman formula that helps separate it from sentai/rider shows, besides the fact that the hero grows gigantic? Because that’s really all I know about Ultraman.

      I can only assume it was the lack of sufficient exposure. Ultraman seems to have some parallels with Godzilla media, but at the same time, doesn’t have the same feel as them (i.e: monsters taking the lead roles VS being enemies).

      Then again, it’s not like Kamen Rider is officially that big in the West either. Dragon Knight seems to have raised some interests, but without continual support with more media, I’m not sure how long that’ll last beyond the usual crowd that are already fans.

        Huh, so Ultraman is essentially about a human that is also a Kaiju, fighting other evil Kaiju? I could see how that theme can work for ‘em, that’s pretty cool.

      i used to watch Ultraman as a kid, maybe it was just too early.
