Japan’s Former PM Promoted to Ultraman King

Japan’s ex-Prime Minister Junichirō Koizumi, who served in the early ’00s, is doing the voice for the Ultraman King premiering in the Ultra Series film Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend the Movie. The film features several of the past Ultramen from throughout the franchise.

I tend to actually enjoy politicians’ attempts to mingle with popular culture. It’s a nice try at trying to connect with people who don’t care about politics, even when it’s superficial at best. It’s usually humorous, either intentionally or not.

Check out the trailer for Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend the Movie, opening this December:

And after that, check out the snazzy new ride Ultraman King is going to use to pick  up the Ultrakids from Ultrasoccer (or Ultrafootball as it’s referred to internationally) practice with.

Sadly though, I’m not that much of a fan of the Ultra Series. Haven’t seen enough. If anyone has any suggestions for a good series to start out with, let me know.
