First episode of Ultraman Dyna subbed on Tsuburaya's YouTube channel.
I don't know if this means they'll go through the whole show but the high points of this show are as great as I remember. The lines about space colonization being a manifestation of humanity's hopes and dreams is some beautiful sci fi optimism.

Looks like you can watch the first four episodes of Jaspion, the fourth Metal Heroes show, on Bandai Spirits. Since they're advertising a new toy of DaiLeon, the show's mech. English subtitles and everything.

And there he was, as a reasonable Price, randomly in my local toy shop. YOINK.
So Taiga here is the son of Ultraman Taro, the last of the true New Generation Heroes and a shiny pretty design whos show I havent seen yet because its somehow not available, even on the seedier parts of the net. But I have seen him in other specials and spin offs, plus I need to complete my New Generation Heroes, so here he is! Hes quite shiny and pretty, and looks great, but is a pretty low key release only featuring extra hands (a beam would have been nice Bandai). But still Im super glad to have him, and all I have to do now is keep
myself from buying his two buddies Titas and Fuma who are ridiculously expensive exclusives.
I was also pleased to pick up two Ultraman POP figures - Ultraman Ace and Alien Balkan. Great haul!

New Generation Climax with Taiga was -supposed- to be the last of the New Generation Heroes, and Z starts the Reiwa era. Trigger's tagline though does bring that into question - maybe it'll be a New Generation vs New Generation Reiwa thing, once we see what's after Trigger.

And these different eras were because of gaps of multiple years between shows, which hasn't happened recently.

All the marketing materials IIRC for New Generation Climax talked about it being the end of the New Generation Heroes, like how they did for the equivalent Rider movie. Z was also never referred to as a New Generation Hero in any of his marketing(or in-universe) up through now.

And FYI, I mean last in the sense of one I was missing since I have Z and all the other New Gen Heroes (base forms anyway!)
-edit- Apparently I cant even remember what I wrote lol.

It was in the trailers as I recall, but all I can find on youtube is the final trailer which just says it's Taiga's story ending. There's also other things suggesting it, such as the lack of a Z medal in the "New Generation Heroes" set: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10749109(despite there being individual medals released for Z's individual forms, whatever sense that makes) and the fact that Z is not officially referenced anywhere as being part of the New Generation heroes that I've seen, unlike Taiga.

So Tokushoutsu currently has Zyuranger (aka the original frikken Power Rangers) running and holy cow its so much more fun than Power Rangers.
Everything is better except the theme song (and then only barely).
Sorry.. I'm going to have to hard disagree with that. I found Zyuranger was a mess to begin with, and the Burai arc... i -really- don't grasp why so many people love that. At least the the Tommy arc made some sense, the Burai arc has his Heel turn literally come out of effing nowhere and completely contradictory to EVERYTHING they showed about him before.
