Many years ago, giant aliens invaded Earth in order to attack it. Ultraman came to the aid of all living things on the planet – a man with supernormal abilities. It was his honor to protect the planet so that the world reigned on it again…
Shinjiro Hayata once discovers in himself some abilities that ordinary teenagers are not endowed with: overpower, overshoot, vitality and even levitation. As it turned out later, the hero Ultraman, who fought with giant monsters many years ago, was none other than his father Shin Hayata.
One night, an unknown person attacked Shinjiro, who had been following the guy for a long time. By pure chance, Shinjiro’s father, wearing Ultraman, was able to save him. In the battle with the long-time enemy Bemular, who turned out to be the attacker, Ultraman ran out of power – it was his age and not the same reaction. Then the time came for Shinjiro, a young Ultraman, who rushed to help his wounded father.
Now the father is ready to transfer all his strengths and skills of the human rights defender Ultraman into the hands of his son. Shinjiro – the new owner of super power and ultra suit. After a while, the young defender of the Earth will again be face to face with Bemular. And this time, the guy will see the true appearance of the enemy – the figure in the armor is clearly not human – it was a reptile with a mouth full of fangs…
The world is threatened with an attack by alien beings again. The time has come for Shinjiro Hayata – the next Ultraman. What creatures are ready this time to challenge earthlings? And will Ultraman be able to protect his planet as powerfully and courageously as his father used to be?..
