Ultraman Neos (ウルトラマンネオス Urutoraman Neosu?) is a Japanese tokusatsu show, being the 15th show in the Ultra Series produced by Tsuburaya Productions. Ultraman Neos was initially intended as a TV series but the project was shelved. Years later, Tsuburaya turned the concept into a 12-episode direct-to-video series. In spite of the appearance of similar designs and a cameo by Zoffy, the series is set in an alternate universe.
In the first decade of the 21st Century on Earth, the rising of the population results in low quality of life, as well the increasing number of ESP incidents and alien invasions. At Nebula M78, the information service of the Space Defense Force watches these phenomena and throughout the Space Security Service, a ramification of the group sent a warrior to Earth named Ultraman Neos and his commander Ultraseven 21 (ウルトラセブン21 Urutoraseben Tsū Wan?). Upon arriving on Earth, Ultraman Neos secretly merges with Genki Kagura to help HEART (Hi-tech Earth Alert Rescue Team) fight monsters both of terrestrial and extraterrestrial origin.
The general of the troop, even knowing the uncommon situation in the area, finds inadequate to take off the veteran Seven 21 of his rank and asks for support to the Yuhshi Shirei Bu (Warrior Command Group) of the Ultra War Unit. The organization selects the young warrior of the elite troop, Ultraman Neos, with Ultraseven 21 giving him support when necessary.
