Ultra Zone (ウルトラゾーン, Urutora Zōn) was a variety show featuring Ultra Kaiju, leading up to the franchise's 45th anniversary film's opening on March 24. The program aired on various Japanese television networks from October 16, 2011 to March 25, 2012. Each half-hour episode demonstrated the Ultra monsters' characteristics in a variety of comic situations.
One part of the show was a short story segment with scenarios such as "if a monster comes to get a massage" and "if a transfer student was a monster." A story with special effects in the style of the 1966 Ultra Q live-action monster series will be another part of the variety show. The program's background music will include re-recordings from the scores of Ultra Q and Ultraman. Ultra Zone's creators hope the various comedic aspects of the show will appeal to a wide viewership.
