While it embraces “Tiga” story elements such as the legend of the Ancient Giant of Light and the first-ever use of Type Changes in the Ultraman series, Ultraman Trigger can be considered a new generation Tiga with a brand-new story. Welcoming a Tokusatsu Genre Veteran, Koichi Sakamoto, who will serve as Director of the series and standing by his motto “wanting to make everyone smile,” meanwhile the part of the protagonist “Kengo Manaka,” a human imbued with light, and once more he stands against monster attacks and the dark forces to protect the Earth, will be played by Matsuri Nine‘s leader Raiga Terasaka.


30 million years ago, the world was engulfed in terrifying darkness. But that darkness was sealed deep in space by the Giant of Light.

But that darkness was sealed deep in space by the Giant of Light. His power spent, the Giant of Light sleeps in the red star, and is forgotten to time… The Terrestrial Peaceable Union hurries to gather the expert team GUTS-Select, while Kengo Manaka lives peacefully on now-colonized Mars as a botanist.

However, his peaceful life suddenly comes to an end one fateful day. The darkness that the ancient civilization sealed away breathes once more!

As a monster bears down on the Martian settlement, Kengo’s fate leads him to a chance encounter.

A chance encounter with none other than the sleeping Giant of Light. How will Kengo’s meeting with the Giant of Light influence his destiny and the destiny of Earth?
