Simulcast GET: Crunchyroll nabs Ultraman X


In which toku fans are given more hope

Well, folks; I think it's safe to say that 2015 is a great year to be a tokusatsu fan. Last week, Shout! Factory announced Dairanger's North American DVD release, and Crunchyroll has now revealed that they're simulcasting Ultraman X.

In case this is your first time hearing about the series, Ultraman X revolves around Daichi Oozora uniting with an Ultra Warrior to fight against the Spark Dolls that have changed into monsters. Originally, these creatures were sealed under the planet; however, the sun's Ultra Flares managed to awake them from their slumber. Luckily, our main hero is part of the defense group called XiO, which means that he has the support to defeat the deadly life forms that threaten the Earth.

While my only experience with the franchise is Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends, I heard from former Japanator Associate Editor Elliot Gay that the show's fights are similar to the Godzilla series' action scenes.

Since this is Crunchyroll's first official tokusatsu simulcast, I guess you could say that they have reached a new height. Depending on how well Ultraman X, there's a slight chance that we might see more current tokusatsu titles on the Website.

If you're interested in watching the series, the show's first episode hit Crunchyroll earlier today; however, the simulcast can't be viewed in Asia.

On that note, is anyone excited about Crunchyroll simulcasting the latest Ultra series?
