Ultraman Cosmos (ウルトラマンコスモス Urutoraman Kosumosu?) is a Japanese tokusatsu TV show being the 17th show in the Ultra Series. Produced by Tsuburaya Productions, Ultraman Cosmos aired from July 7, 2001 to September 28, 2002, with a total of 65 episodes, which currently makes it the longest running Ultra Show to date. Ultraman Cosmos was also the 35th anniversary for the Ultraman series.

In June 2002, Cosmos was taken off of television for several weeks (following the broadcast of the 49th episode) when lead actor Taiyo Sugiura was questioned in an assault and extortion case. When the case against Sugiura was dropped for lack of evidence, Cosmos was put back on the air.[1] TBS and Tsuburaya ultimately pulled five episodes (50, 52, 54, 56, and 58) from broadcast to make up for time lost, and these episodes were later released on DVD.

Plot

A kinder, gentler Ultra hero was released in the summer of 2001 to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the original Ultraman. The launch of the TV show was quickly followed by a feature film prequel, and is the first time that an Ultra movie and TV series were so closely linked. Following recent trends, Cosmos is another type-changing Ultraman, with the all-blue Luna mode, and the asymmetrical red and blue Corona modes. The modes represent a "gentle" side and a "strong" side, respectively. Later in the series, Cosmos also develops the "courageous" Eclipse mode, with a symmetrical blue, red and gold design. The series was extended to 65 episodes, which makes it the longest-running in the franchise to date.

This series is preceded by the feature film Ultraman Cosmos: The First Contact. In it, Musashi Haruno encoutners the being of light, Ultraman Cosmos (ウルトラマンコスモス Urutoraman Kosumosu?), and befriends him as the two confront a threat to Earth. The TV series takes place eight years after the events in the movie, when monsters are once again plaguing humanity. Now Musashi is a 19-year-old young man. He joins a wing of SRC known as Team EYES. Musashi encounters Cosmos again, and the two merge to defend the Earth.

The recurring villain in this series is the Chaos Header, a virus that either infects monsters or replicates them, creating more violent and aggressive versions of them, even Ultraman Cosmos himself. Usually, you can distinguish the original monster from the infected monster because the infected one has "Chaos" as a prefix in its name and has a head with a lot more junk on it, and it has a power boost. This series has a lot of monsters that pay homage to monsters from past series. The Baltans are the most blatant example. Golmede and Lidorias are similar to Gomess and Litra in episode 1 of Ultra Q. There is also Spittle (with head-covering armored petals around his neck like Gabora of Ultraman episode 9), Gigi (with distinct black and white lines and three faces like Dada of Ultraman episode 28), Mudon (like Seabozu) , Mienin and Gamoran (like the perennial favorites, Pigmon and Garamon, respectively), Clevergon (like Crazygon) and Mogrudon (like mongular).


This series is followed by the feature film, Ultraman Cosmos: The Blue Planet, in which Cosmos gains a couple of new modes (Space Corona and Phantom Corona). This in turn is followed by Ultraman Cosmos Vs Ultraman Justice: The Final Battle.
