Promotional poster

Ultraman Mebius (ウルトラマンメビウス Urutoraman Mebiusu?) is a the 19th entry in the long-running Ultra Series, produced by Tsuburaya Productions and Chubu-Nippon Broadcasting. It premiered on the Tokyo Broadcasting System on April 8, 2006. Unlike the two prior entries, Ultraman Nexus (2004) and Ultraman Max (2005), Mebius was moved from Saturday mornings to Saturday evenings at 05:30. "Mebius" is the Japanese approximation of Möbius; the Möbius strip is a recurring motif in the series. The show aired in Korea in April 2012, and began streaming on Crunchyroll in October, 2014.

Series Overview

The show is about Mebius, a rookie warrior, who is sent to Earth by Father of Ultra. There are many tributes to past shows: it is a continuation of the Showa Era's, picking up twenty years after Ultraman 80.

In the opening, all the members of Crew GUYS are killed except Ryuu Aihara, by the space monster Dinozaur. Mebius, in his human form as Mirai Hibino, transforms to fight, after helping several people rescue bunny rabbits. He later recruits them to help Ryuu, and ultimately they join GUYS, setting the stage for the rest of the show.

GUYS

Main article: GUYS (Guards for Utility Situation)
  • Mirai Hibino/Ultraman Mebius (ヒビノ・ミライ/日比野 未来 Hibino Mirai?): A somewhat naive but earnest individual, Mebius takes the form of a human being on earth, taking the name Mirai Hibino.
  • Ryuu Aihara (アイハラ・リュウ Aihara Ryū?): The only surviving member from the original GUYS. Somewhat cold on the exterior, in reality he is earnest about defending others. He recites the Five Ultra Oaths frequently, after learning them from the previous captain.
  • Marina Kazama (カザマ・マリナ Kazama Marina?): She is a former motorcycle racer with dreams of becoming one of the first internationally known women in the sport. She acts as the sisterly figure to the other members, particularly George.
  • George Ikaruga (イカルガ・ジョージ Ikaruga Jōji?): He is a former all-star soccer player, though he broke his leg for a time and had to sit out of his games for a few years. The Sharp shooter and token pilot.
  • Konomi Amagai (アマガイ・コノミ Amagai Konomi?): A gentle and timid young lady, who loves animals and children. The main Marquette monster user.
  • Teppei Kuze (クゼ・テッペイ Kuze Teppei?): A rich, intelligent young man, Teppei is also a fan of monsters, and can recognize most on sight, as well as give valuable insight on them. Somewhat timid, but earnest.
  • Shingo Sakomizu (サコミズ・シンゴ Sakomizu Shingo?): Commander of the new CREW GUYS and General Inspector of GUYS Japan. Upon assuming his position, he reorganized GUYS with the new members.
GUYS JAPAN Staff Members
  • Aide Toriyama (トリヤマ補佐官 Toriyama Hosakan?): The leader of the Japanese branch of GUYS, he issues orders to GUYS and gets frantic with joy whenever they accomplish a mission. More or less the public face of GUYS, he is apparently the one who must answer to the news media about GUYS' actions. Gave approval for the use of METEOR until episode 4, when he handed the authority to Sakomizu. While generally portrayed as cowardly, syncophantic and bumblingly incompetent throughout the series, he gathers his resolve and stands up to Inspector Shiki when the latter demands that GUYS turn Ultraman Mebius/Hibino Mirai over.
  • Secretary Aide Maru (マル補佐官秘書 Maru Hosakan Hisho?): Toriyama's secretary, he follows Toriyama around and often corrects his speech mistakes.
  • Yuki Misaki (ミサキ・ユキ Misaki Yuki?): The acting inspector general (総監代行 Sōkan Daikō?), she reports monsters to GUYS. As with Sakomizu, little is known about her.
  • Chief Maintenance Araiso (アライソ整備長 Araiso Seibichō?) The chief of the maintenance group which maintains GUYS machines. He very much prizes a pilot's life. The photographs (Jet VTOL of SSSP, Ultra Hawk 1 of UG, MAT Arrow 1 of MAT, UGM Falcon of TAC, Condor 1 of ZAT and Sky Higher of UGM can be checked) of the main force jets of the monster attack team of successive generations decorates his working area. So, if maintenance of machines is needed, he is the stubborn character which stops sorties. He quarrels with Ryu, who forcibly flies the machines despite the needed repairs. He is the leading person who proposed adoption of METEOR.
  • Hinode Sayuri: The lunch lady, working at the Phoenix Nest cafeteria. Often referred 'mother' by several members of GUYS. She was hit by a car when trying to save a boy and was pronounced dead in the hospital. A Serpentian revived her in order to use her body to destroy GUYS base, pretending to be touched by Hinode's selfless actions. In order to keep Hinode under his control, the Serpentian eventually took over her consciousness and body. But before the Serpentian can destroy the base, Hinode regained control of her body and helped fight off the Serpentian invasion force. At the end of the episode we see her going about her life as usual, but now having become both super-strong and super-fast.

GUYS OCEAN

GUYS Ocean is the aquatic branch of GUYS. They appeared in episode 38. They made their first appearance in the sub-jet, Seawinger. Their headquarters is located in the massive submarine, the Blue Whale.

  • Hiroshi Isana (勇魚 洋 Isana Hiroshi?): He is the commander of GUYS Ocean, posing as an outcast when he first met CREW GUYS Japan. He is also a former member of Chief Maintenance Araiso crew, before he decided to apply as a pilot. He had heard rumors that Ultraman Mebius had joined CREW GUYS as a human and set out to find out who he was. He came upon discovering Mirai and Mebius are the same by only coincidence (he saw Mebius appeared from the jet Ryu and Mirai is in and he realized that the wound on Mirai's chest is also the same part where Mebius got hit by a monster). He also left them a little note with his farewell gift, saying that they should be more careful with what they say in their cockpits as he had heard them.

GUYS General Headquarters

GUYS General Headquarters is a central part of GUYS in New York.

Others

  • Kazuya Serizawa/Ultraman Hikari (セリザワ・カズヤ Serizawa Kazuya?): Serizawa was the former commander of GUYS. When Dino Zaur invaded the Earth, then-captain Serizawa had Ryu eject from their jet while he made a suicide run at Dino Zaur high above the earth. However, just before dying, Hunter Knight Tsurugi united with him. After destroying Dino Zaur Reverse, he was asked by Mirai to return, an offer which he refused and told Mirai to take care of Ryu in his absence as he left the Earth. In episode 35, he returns to Earth after an imposter attacks it in his form. He fights the imposter, the alien Babarue, and after winning he returns to space. Hikari's power was inherited to Ryu in Episode 49.
  • Mystery Woman (Bogal Human) (謎の女(ボガールヒューマン) Nazo no Onna (Bogāru Hyūman)?): She came to Earth to aid the monsters attacking the planet and was actually a monster herself. Her true form was Bogal the Higher Dimension Predator. Her alien form acted like a Venus flytrap, and she had an elastic tongue. Her human form was dressed completely in white and has a reptile-like tongue. She talked in a lizard-like voice, could teleport and can move at super-speed. After she destroyed the planet of Arb, Tsurugi came to kill her. She was a bit of a coward, as she always teleported when Tsurugi attacks her. She caused Mebius much trouble. When Mebius used his Mebium Beam to destroy her, she shed her skin and became Bogal Mons. She fought both Mebius and Tsurugi in this form, and was ultimately destroyed when Tsurugi lodged his Knight Blade into her torso long enough for the energy to accumulate. The resulting explosion covered the entire island that they were on, but Mebius and a dying Tsurugi managed to escape before a force field that CREW GUYS set up earlier to contain the explosion could trap them inside.
  • Kadokura (カドクラ Kadokura?): The supervisor of the team to which Marina belonged. At first, although he regretted having left the team in order that Marina might join GUYS, he is aiding now.
  • Keiko Kuze (クゼ・ケイコ Kuze Keiko?): Teppei's mother. She is very overprotective of Teppei. She expects Teppei to succeed the top position in his father's hospital. She was unaware that Teppei was a member of GUYS, but found out when she saw him in a news report on television. She was very much opposed to Teppei continuing being part of the GUYS team, until she observes him in action, defending his father's hospital from a monster. After Teppei finally admits to his reasons for wishing to stay as a member of GUYS, she gives him her blessing.
  • Tetsuharu Kuze (クゼ・テツハル Kuze Tetsuharu?): Teppei's father. He is the head doctor of a hospital.
  • Chisato (チサト Chisato?): She is the nurse who was Konomi's coworker.
  • Tetsuro Ban (バン・テツロウ Ban Tetsurō?): He was the captain of Spacecraft Arandas. Appeared in episodes 21 and 22. The father of Hiroto. His wife was killed by Namegon. His son was killed when they entered the Ultra Zone in their spacecraft. He is now retired and spends his days remembering his time as a captain. He originally was opposed to Mirai using the form of his son but soon accepted this as a way to honor his son's bravery.
  • Hiroto Ban (バン・ヒロト Ban Hiroto?): He was a member of the Spacecraft Arandas along with his father, Mirai Hibino's exact look-alike. He was born on Mars and had never been to earth. One day his father asked him to join him on a mission to earth, an offer which he accepted. He was bringing his mother's ashes home to earth. Along the way, the ship encountered distress. Ban sacrificed himself to save the ship. He entered the Ultra Zone where he was killed before they could reach Earth. After saving his father, Mebius used the form of his son as his human guise to honor Ban's bravery.
  • Professor Asami Fujisawa (フジサワ・アサミ博士 Fujisawa Asami Hakase?): A genius who skipped most grades and acquired a degree at age 20. She created the Region Restrictor and Dimensional Dissolver. She is best friends with Misaki. Due to Asami's light character and love of Spanish Flamenco dancing, George falls in love with her. She has a strong dislike of coffee (unlike Sakomizu), and will automatically suspect of Sakomizu if she even smells any nearby.
  • Mitsuhiko Hirukawa (蛭川 光彦 Hirukawa Mitsuhiko?): He is the journalist of a gossip weekly magazine. In the past, he wrote the falsehood news story of the reason by which George joined the GUYS.

Later, he finds out that Mirai is indeed Ultraman Mebius in episode 44. He reveals this later in television talk show.
  • Man in Black (黒ずくめの男 Kurozukume no Otoko?): He is Yapool's human form. Mushitaro Kuri who sold his soul to Yapool in the past was made into a puppet.
