Episode Guide
Prelude to Ground Annihilation
To the Ultra Future

Hold On To! Future (つかみとれ! 未来 Tsukami Tore! Mirai) is the 39th episode of Ultraman Max.


Max runs out of energy completely while battling Delos. Max saves Kaito before his colour timer extinguishes. DASH must find a way to restore Max's energy if humanity is to be saved. Crunchyroll summary


The people of Delos requested Max to stop their now rogue defense system, allowing Max to attack their super weapon Giga Berserk. However between rising to the surface and flying to battle, Max had little time to fight. Max lost to Giga Berserk and turned to stone after separating Kaito from his body. Unwilling to surrender, DASH revived the hero by recharging the Max Galaxy, which Kaito merged with and flew to Max to again merge with him one last time. After a short assault, Max destroyed Giga Basark and left Earth with Xenon to return back home to Nebula M78.
