Ultraman Nexus (ウルトラマンネクサス Urutoraman Nekusasu) is a Japanese tokusatsu drama in Tsuburaya's Ultra Series and seventienth series overall. This series started on October 2, 2004.

This is the final part of the ill-fated Ultra N Project. The show was an experiment by Tsuburaya to see if they could produce a darker Ultraman story with an emphasis that "anyone can be Ultraman".

On December 1, 2015, Tsuburaya announced that to commemorate the show's 10th anniversary, it would be streamed worldwide on Crunchyroll at an unspecified date[1]. This makes it the sixth Ultra Series to be on the streaming service.

Plot

In an era of global terrorism, how would people really react to a mysterious alien that battled deadly monsters on Earth? Would a suspicious human race be capable of viewing that Ultraman as a friend? Ultraman Nexus follows Kazuki Komon, a first responder who joins the Night Raiders, a secret group that battles murderous monsters called Space Beasts. Komon's life is changed after the mysterious giant called Ultraman saves his life, but is shocked to find that the Night Raiders' parent organization, TLT, is inclined to view Ultraman as a threat.

Notes

  • Originally, the series was intended to last for 52 episodes (Concept Art of several scrapped Space Beasts still exist, as well as a transformed state of Dark Zagi, known as "Dark Lucifer" was to be the series' final villain.) However, the series was cancelled due to bad ratings and negative reception on the series's darker and more serious tone in comparison to the past recent Ultra Series', such as Cosmos.
