DISCLAIMER: SPOILERS AHEAD
The 6 part series of Season 2 of Netflix's 'Ultraman' sure had something for everyone. Be it action, appealing graphics or animation delivery, the anime sure did deliver.
The Japanese superhero Ultraman is sure to set the standard for movies of the Kyodai Hero genre from Tokusatsu films, hereon. And why not? Each episode is action-packed, with Ultraman being one of the first Kyodai Heroes, transforming into monster-sized beings to fight crime and all evil.
While Shinjiro Hayata is dejected about Rena's sudden disappearance during the initial part of the series, the inevitable incident in itself acted as the driving force for him to work towards bringing her back to earth safely. The things we do for love can be remarkable, isn't it?
Journalist Kotaro Higashi is the one who takes a call on confronting the alien force, bringing it to the higher-ups so that strict action would be taken to clean house completely. It's safe to say he makes all of his decisions only after running them by his girlfriend Izumi.
Having said that, after she too disappears and they have one last conversation in a parallel galaxy, Izumi insists that Kotaro go back to earth, even if it means he'll never see the love of his life again. Izumi adds that she is content that Kotaro is not just her hero, but all of humanity's as well.
Taro proceeds to destroy the Golden Fortress from within along with Jack, ordering the rest of the Ultramen to stay and protect the Earth. Taro is threatened by an alien who is confident of the Golden Fortress trampling the SSSP. In response, an overly frustrated Taro unleashes his superpowers of fire, thereby completely defeating the Fortress and the monsters in it.
