Aliens have been emigrating to Earth secretly, but only a handful knows about this truth. Living in such a society, the main character Hiroyuki Kudo begins working at a private security organization E.G.I.S. (Enterprise of Guard and Investigation Services). The organization takes care of cases related with aliens, and Hiroyuki works day and night to protect peace.
However, there lies a huge secret in him, which he himself is not aware of. He carries Ultraman Taiga’s “particle of light”.
The new story begins as Taiga’s powers revive from Hiroyuki’s body!
The son of Ultraman Taro (first appeared in ULTRAMAN TARO (1973)), who once saved the Earth.
Deep inside, he wishes his father Taro to understand and recognize him, but he cannot admit his true feelings.
He has a strong sense of justice and is very enthusiastic. Along with Titas and Fuma, he founded the “Tri Squad”. Although still young and not skilled, but he dedicates to fight for peace on Earth.
Together with Hiroyuki, he grows to become a true Ultraman.
The second Ultraman that dwells inside Hiroyuki.
Ultraman Titas is a warrior and a sage from Planet U40, the birthplace of Ultraman Joneus (first appeared in THE ULTRAMAN (1979)), as opposed to the Land of Light in Nebula M78. With his carefully trained body and healthy spirit, he is skilled in heavyweight battles.
The third Ultraman that dwells inside Hiroyuki.
Ultraman Fuma is from Planet O-50, the planet where Ultraman Orb (first appeared in ULTRAMAN ORB (2016)), Rosso and Blu (both first appeared in ULTRAMAN R/B (2018)) acquired the power of the warrior of light. He has quick reflexes and various techniques that make him strong in battles that require speed.
He has a rough personality, but also a strong sense of duty.
An evil Ultraman that first appeared in ULTRAMAN R/B The Movie (2019).
He is from Nebula M78 and was originally a close friend of Ultraman Taro, but fell to the dark side.
He is the arch-nemesis of Taiga and relentlessly targets him.
Hiroyuki Kudo (aged 22)
A young member of the private security organization E.G.I.S, Hiroyuki has a kind heart and a strong sense of justice. He was attacked by an alien when he was a child, but was saved by the light of Ultraman Taiga who unexpectedly arrived on Earth. Since then, Ultraman Taiga dwells inside him.
However, Hiroyuki does not know about this, and lives a normal life with a normal family.
As the story goes on, he encounters Titas and Fuma as well, and become buddies with them.
Hiroyuki has a kind heart that embraces everything, including the unknown. He grows to become the bridge for “humans”, “aliens”, and “Ultraman”.
Born on June 6th 1996 (22 years old) in Hiroshima.
2017 Won Special Jury Prize at the Horipro Talent Scout Caravan
2018 July, debuted in the Broadway musical Peter Pan (as Pirate Marins)
2018 December, casted in Nisekoi (directed by Yuto Kawai)
I’m Yusuke Inoue, and will be playing the role of Hiroyuki Kudo, the main character.
When I was given this role, I was very happy and excited that I will now be playing Ultraman, a hero I had always admired.
Once I told my family, my mother sent me photos of the Ultraman show I used to attend every year since I was 5. These photos reminded me of how much I had admired Ultraman since I was a child.
This time I will be giving this feeling to the kids, and I hope to play Ultraman Taiga that will be remembered by many generations.
As I just made my debut, the newly employed member Hiroyuki Kudo overlaps with me a lot. With the support of my elder colleagues, I think I am becoming one with the character.
With the amazing cast, staff, and of course those who are watching, I would love for everyone to enjoy ULTRAMAN TAIGA. I would greatly appreciate your passionate support!
Once the hidden Ultra Energy is released, it can connect the bonds between humans and Ultraman. By leading the Ultra Taiga Accessory with the Taiga Spark, one can borrow the powers of heroes and monsters sealed inside.
●Ultra Taiga Accessory
Items with powers of Ultra Heroes and monsters sealed. Different types exist such as key chains, bracelets, and rings. Key chain type is used when transforming into Ultraman Taiga, Titas and Fuma.
