One of the most powerful of Ultra Brothers
5 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

After Ultraman Jack returned to his home world, earth is under attack again this time by an enemy from another dimension called Yapoor. Fifth in line of Ultra Brothers - Ultraman Ace is sent to earth to battle the super monsters created by Yapoor.

Earth is under attack again, this time by a chojyu (Literally - Super Beast) Velcron that was created by inter dimensional beings called Yapoor. Seiji Hokuto (Keiji Takamine), and Yuko Minami (Mitsuko Hoshi) lost their lives trying to protect earth. Ultraman Ace who was sent to replace Ultraman Jack witnessed this, and gave his life force to revive the two. Now when Yuko, and Seiji performs the Ultra Touch, they transform into Ultraman Ace.

This was the first time two earthlings were involved in transforming into one of the Ultraman Brothers. Ultraman Ace seems to have most amount of weapons even for the very well equipped members of Ultra Brothers. He defeats the menace of chojyu with dazzling array of beam weapons. One of the monumental blunder the producers made was to get rid of Yuko Minami's character in episode 28. The dynamics of the story that was interesting between Yuko and Seiji was lost, and one of the key focal point that made the stories interesting was also lost. After the departure of Yuko, Seiji was able to transform into Ultraman Ace by himself. We see more of other Ultra Brothers making guest appearance in this series. From this point on, one or more Ultra Brothers making guest appearances in their sibling's show became common place.

Ultraman Ace appears in ten other Ultraman series/movies, and his character is still active today. His most recent appearance is in "Ultraman Saga" (2012). In "Daikessen Urutora Hachi Kyoudai" (2008), Yuko, and Seiji is seen married with a daughter. In this movie, only Seiji transforms into Ultraman Ace.

This series had more modern appearance, and everything seemed brighter than the previous Ultraman series. Ultraman Ace was more athletic than his older siblings, as he freely jumped and tumbled through air that gave the impression of his power. The no nonsense way Ultraman Ace does his business makes him one of my favorite Ultra heros.

Excellent adventure sci-fi from Tsuburaya Production, with story still continuing to this day.
