Ultraman Ginga S Series Recap – Part 1

gingas-title

A couple of months ago, I watched, recapped, and summed up my thoughts about the series Ultraman Ginga. A relatively short story even shorter, I didn’t like it very much. It was almost enough to make me wonder if the Ultra Series was ever even all that great to begin with, to make me wonder if my childhood was a lie, to make me wonder if Tsuburaya would ever drag themselves out of the hole that they’d dug. Well, fortunately the answers to these questions are yes, no, and yes. Ginga‘s sequel series, Ultraman Ginga S, is rather superior to its predecessor. Like GingaGinga S is rather silly and over-the-top, but not in a way that insults your intelligence, and with characters who the writers even bothered to make likeable. I can happily say that Ultraman Ginga was only a terrible but brief misstep in the Ultra Series otherwise stellar run. Let’s take a look at exactly how this series managed to outdo its father show by recapping the first eight episodes! Read More

Ultraman Ginga Series Recap – Part 1

So I’ve decided to ditch the whole scene-by-scene thing, at least as far as TV shows are concerned. Hopefully it works out more this way.

Ultraman Ginga is, by all means, a fairly terrible show. The characters are bland, the plots are dumb, and the very premise of the show is weak to begin with. And the budget was supposedly non-existent, due to Tsubaraya Productions’ never-ending financial woes. That last part shows. Despite all this, however, Ginga can be a surprisingly fun show at times, mostly when it stops trying to be anything more than what it is, which more often than not is pretty goddamn stupid.

So enough stalling, let’s get down to recapping the show! This part covers the first 6 episodes. Read More
