Ultraman Z Episode 23 Prelude to a Nightmare – December 05, 2020

Writer: Kota Fukihara

Director: Koichi Sakamoto

STORAGE has developed the 4th Special Airborne Armor, Ultroid Zero, based on analysis of Ultraman! Yoko is chosen as its pilot, but on the day of its launch test, monsters begin to rampage all over the place! In the face of a monster attack of unprecedented scale, STORAGE unveils their most powerful robot to show off its true strength!

-Yoko’s spirit


This question of power is still nagging me. Why shouldn’t humans have the power to defend themselves from Kaiju? Yuka’s hometown had a defense against kaiju in the form of that song and instrument. The show seemed to present that as a good thing. Why was that ok and Ultroid Zero not ok? Is it about martial strength versus something more passive and gentle like the music? Is the D4 weapon specifically the problem? Would Ultroid Zero be acceptable without it? Sevenger, Windom and King Joe were powerful weapons fusing human ingenuity and kaiju parts of powers. Why are those acceptable?


Is GAF right to not want to rely on Ultraman, some alien who just showed up from out of nowhere?

Series Synopsis

Once, shards of evil called “Devil Splinters” were scattered across space, throwing the galaxy into chaos. At that time, Ultraman Z, a new member of the Inter Galactic Defense Force who sought out Ultraman Zero as a mentor, comes down to Earth while chasing the Ferocious Space Shark Genegarg. On Earth, the Anti-Monster Robot Force STORAGE is formed to face down the monsters that appear on a daily basis. In his first battle, Z merges with Haruki Natsukawa, a new pilot of STORAGE. Together, they rise up to protect the peace! However, behind the scenes, the parasitic lifeform Celebro has set a terrifying plot into motion…
