UltraRob

This oddly named series is the latest work of Shouji Kawamori, best known as the creator of Macross, and bears all his hallmarks, from incredible animation to, to a large cast of varied characters, to highly detailed transformable machines. That said, this isn’t a giant robot show, to be more precise, it’s Ultraman by way of Evangelion. For those who don’t know the Ultraman “formula” because you don’t watch Tokusatsu shows, I’ll explain. In each Ultraman series the first episodes introduces the “Science Patrol” (named after the first ones, this is a worldwide super high tech organization dedicated to defending humanity and composed of elite specialists/fighter pilots bearing no small resemblance to a Star Trek bridge crew) which defend humanity against weird stuff (ie monsters). In the first episode, a new (breed of) monsters attacks, the world is thrown into chaos and someone (usually a member of the team) dies during the attack by sacrificing themselves to save innocents or those they love. This incident results in them merging with a mystical energy force (which has different names) and returning to life with the powers of Ultraman to fight off the giant monsters. (Congrats! You now know the entire story of the first episode of Kiss Doum as well!)
Where the Evangelion component comes in is that it’s done in a psuedo-hyper-realistic mode where the heroic organization is controlled by machievellian bastards (a bitch in this case) who have their own sinister agenda and who can’t be trusted. (Ultraman itself did this already too, by the way, it was called Ultraman Nexus and aired two years ago.) They are also bringing in the usual religious themes (The Tibetan “Book of the Dead” in this series, to Evangelion’s take on Christian mythology) just to make the parallel complete. This seems to be the standard now in Japan if you want to make a show “realistic”, and Kawamori is trotting this out to bring more of an edge to the show. I’m sure it will also have some shocking sex scenes to go along with it as well eventually, because that’s also how these things are done these days. (The “innocent” childlike characters he’s introduced will be raped or somesuch at some point to show the shattering of innocence or somesuch.)
Given it’s a Kawamori show, there will also be a strong pro-environmental theme, because that’s how he rolls and has for a very long time. (See Earth Girl Arjuna) That’s fine for me, since I’m pro-environment too, and it’s a message that we need more than ever these days.
All in all, an interesting (if unoriginal) series that I’ll at least check out a few more of in the future to see how his twists turn out.
