Tsuburaya Con 2019 has started and a number of announcements have been made, the biggest being the design of Shin Ultraman (bottom). The design goes back to the original design with some slight updates, mainly the removal of his color timer, eye peep holes, and his zipper ridge from his back. While these items being removed gives a cleaner look it also makes it like it's missing something. Other announcements were SSSS. Dynazenon, a new SSSS Gridman series, Kaiju Decode, including a character reveal, among other items. Also Marvel editor-in-chief CB Severski who spoke about his love for Ultraman.
