There used to be a "light giant" that has kept the peace of the earth from the crisis of huge monsters and invading aliens. That name is Ultraman. The time has passed since human beings were in prosperity since he had been assimilated with Hayatoden of the Science Special Forces Corps and left the earth after completing its mission. However, it was just an upright peace ....
Now, again when the power of "light giant" is required, a new hero inheriting the factor of light appears. But it is not a giant. It was a senior high school student who was dressed in a reinforcement suit for metallic bodies ...
His name is Shojiro Hayada. A new story that the man who was once Ultraman, Susumu Hayasuda struggles as much as possible to become a new generation Ultraman opens the door here! !
"Ultraman" first appeared on TV in 1966. About a half century passed, in 2011, the comic "ULTRAMAN" (original: Eiichi Shimizu × Tomohiro Shimoguchi Monthly Heroes series) appeared.

Director Kamiyama, who has received tremendous support from both domestic and international animation fans with a heavy SF setting and a story tailing of multilayered human drama, is the forerunner of full 3D CG animation movie in Japan, CG mechanic gadget Director Aramaki who is highly evaluated abroad in action direction. "ULTRAMAN" which is handled by two people system by gorgeous creator who the world draws attention is produced as full 3D CG animation. Production IG × SOLA DIGITAL ARTS is in charge of animation production in which the precise texture of Ultraman Suit by 3DCG and dynamic action unique to animation fuse and leap into the production with the introduction of motion capture technology that reflects actor's performance in the character .
The hero Ultraman that Japan boasts of the world now becomes "ULTRAMAN" of animation work, opening a new history towards the world.
There used to exist in this world as a giant of light. Eventually the light giant finished its role and returned to his hometown in the distant universe and the assimilated Earthling person returned to the place where he should stay by losing his memory until then It was. The existence of Ultraman became a thing of the past, and the Science Special Forces Japan branch had also changed its appearance to the giant memorial hall of light after finishing its role.
Shojiro Hayada is a high school student who has a pleasant adolescence. However, he realized that he had power that was not "ordinary" separated by humans, such as amazing jumping power and sturdy flesh.
One day, Shojiro knows that his father, Mr. Hideharada, was once Ultraman.
And the existence of aliens that dance to earth without Ultraman.
