Ultra Act Ultraman Mebius

Ultra Man, hmmm...

I've always wanted to give the Ultra Man series a go, but since shows like The Power Ranges are of zero interest to me, is it fair to assume Ultra Man would have the same effect?

The only tokusatsu I've ever really liked are the Godzilla films, and most of them are pretty bad. If it wasn't for their B-grade charm & Japanese weirdness, I doubt I'd even watch them.

Having said that though, I do own about 15 Godzilla movies on DVD :)

Not trying to get too off topic from the toy...

But Amazon has the entire first series, 38 episodes, for 6.49. That's an absolutely ridiculous steal (especially if you bought the two individual sets for full retail). I really have no idea what Ultraman does once he gets to the 90's, but if you like the old Godzilla films, I don't think it's possible to dislike classic Ultraman.

Might have to look into that,

Might have to look into that, and while I'm at it, maybe some Super Robot Red Baron also.

Cheap as the original series

Cheap as the original series might be, they're also somewhat dated.

If you want a gateway into Ultraman, I suggest the Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends movie. Which is available subbed in both official and... *ahem* unofficial capacity.

Mebius has a relatively prominent presence in that movie as well.
