Ultraman Taro (ウルトラマンT(タロウ) Urutoraman Tarō?) aired on Tokyo Broadcasting System from April 6, 1973 to April 5, 1974, as the sixth entry in the long-running Ultra Series.

At the time ratings were falling, and as Tsuburaya felt Ace had been a bit too dark at times, they took a lighter approach in Taro to please children. Ironically, this lost even more views from elder fans, causing the series to be followed by Ultraman Leo, often considered the darkest and grittiest entry in the Showa series.

Taro a common name for the boy in otogi-banashis, or, Japanese fairy tales. The name reflects the child-centric aspect of the series, which was intended to be a fairy tale.

PlotEdit

Kotaro Higashi trained to be a boxer, but after an incident Astromons, he was killed. However, his body was brought to Nebula M-78 where Mother of Ultra saved his life by joining him with Ultraman Taro. Taro had spent many years training, honing his skills based on those of the other Ultra Brothers to become strong. The two returned to earth as a new kaiju era was beginning. In the end of the show, Kotaro decideds to remain human by removing his connection to Taro, one of the few human hosts to do so.
