Ghidorah as sime kind of Cthullian interdimensional Elder God type beast was pretty good.
My two complaints are Virtually everybody who 'escaped' from Earth at the beginning of the first film dies horribly. With Ghidorah annihilating the ship and all aboard in his first act.
The whole 'humanity will inevitably rebuild and evolve technologically, only to be killed again'. I was getting Mass Effect 3 flashbacks to their whole 'organics build synthetics that will ALWAYS kill them. This is inevitable'.

So, sounding like a rehash of Blue Gender, where the moral is, "Technology bad, it makes monsters, everyone should regress to stone age and be happy. And shame on you for liking mecha."

Also, alledgedly, Toho gave this set of films strict limitations on how much of the monsters they could use, and how they really restricted the monster battles. I don't if this is true, or where to find the specific info. So take that with a grain of salt.

That Ghidorah is three kinds of awesome!

But that will never change the fact that the design looks doofy, lol!

Im not super up on Ultraman lore but Ive watched the entirety of Ultraman and Ultraseven, as well as several of the newer shows, and Im catching lots of references, as well as others I feel like I should get but am missing.
Stylistically, it seems to take a bit more after Ultraseven than is namesake, with the hero remaining human size but constantly battling a bunch of aliens (several of whom are instantly recognizable classics). The animation in any part that isnt an action sequence has a low frame rate that makes it a pain to watch, and the dub job is average - but remarkably both these issues utterly disappear when a fight happens, and it feels a lot more like a very complete and very fun show.
Im definitely finishing this one!

A lot of the references go over my head since i do only know of Ultraman, only ever having seen reviews or read up on the franchise. But this is definitely a good show, though i do agree that the non action framerste feels off and not all the dub voices are good.
I hope they make more of this, because these 13 episodes are a great start.
