Editorial Reviews

It is the year 2049. The world has been at peace for decades but not for much longer. A meteor containing a space capsule crashes to Earth, suspiciously close to The Citagon, headquarters of the Terrestrial Peacekeeping Commission (TPC.) Inside the space capsule is a holographic message intended for the members of GUTS (the Global Unlimited Task Squad) TPC’s investigative agency and special combat squad. The message warns that monstrous creatures will soon destroy the planet. GUTS is told that their only hope is to locate the Pyramid of Light in the ancient land of Tiga. Inside the Pyramid they will find the statue of an ancient warrior, who protected mankind 30 million years ago. They’re told that one person, and one person only, has the power to awaken this giant so that it can resume its role as protector of the planet. Just as the hologram is about to reveal that person’s identity, there’s a malfunction with the space capsule and the holographic image disintegrates. Now time is running out because two monsters, Melba and Golza, have been sighted and they’re headed for Tiga. The GUTS team gets to the Pyramid ahead of the monsters but they’re confused about which one of the three statues inside is the true ancient warrior. They also don’t know how they would go about reviving it. The monsters arrive and begin to destroy the Pyramid, along with the statues of the three ancient warriors. The GUTS team watches helplessly from their Gutswing jets overhead but Daigo, one of the GUTS fighter pilots, decides to take matters into his own hands. Using laser beam artillery on Gutswing 1, he attacks the Golza & Melba. His lasers are no match for these monsters, who have already completely destroyed the Pyramid of Light and two of the three warrior statues inside. Suddenly—Daigo’s jet is hit and he loses control. At the brink of disaster, just as his jet is about to crash to the ground, Daigo is transformed into light and merges with the one remaining giant warrior statue. It is at this sudden and secret moment that Ultraman Tiga is born. Incredibly, it is Daigo who, according to the hologram, was that one and only person able to revive the ancient warrior. Ultraman Tiga battles Golza and Melba and defeats them both. Soon after, Daigo emerges unscathed from the GUTS Wing crash site but his colleagues at GUTS have no idea that their friend is Ultraman Tiga. World peace has been restored. . . at least for now

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultraman Tiga:Starter Set September 21, 2003
Format:DVD
This isn't really a reveiw, but to let people know what this DVD is and share my exictement about this set. This is the first of a four volume set of the original Japanese version of Ultraman Tiga(with subtitles). This is NOT the 4Kids Ent. FOX BOX version shown last year. This is what Ultraman fans in the U.S. have been waiting for! The "Starter Set" will have the first 13 episodes in a collecters box and a T-shirt! The "prophesy" set will be just the episodes. I hope Ultraman Tiga will set the stage for other Ultraman incarnations, like Ultraman Dyna, Ultraman Gaia, or even the older ones would be welcome! I can't wait...Shoo watt!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For Any Ultraman Fan December 28, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
We have waited FOREVER for this to come out in the U.S. As others have said, this is NOT the same version that aired on FoxBox last fall. This is the actual series in Japanese ( with subtitles ) as it was meant to be seen. Even the closing credits of each episode is in Japanese with the ORIGINAL soundtrack.
If you were a fan of the original Ultraman ( and he DOES make an appearance in an episode probably on the last Volume ) - then this is a MUST HAVE.
There is no way this DVD could have been any better. The only nit-picky thing would be to have included a bit more info on the monsters in the episodes but that's nothing compared to what's already here. This is without a doubt the BEST purchase I have ever made for this genre.
Believe it or not there are at least 3 other Ultra-series that aired after this one did in 1996. If sales are good, we could see these in the not too distant future as well on DVD.
My advice? TRASH any dubbed, copied or any other illegitimate old versions you may have of the show and BUY THIS DVD. It is worth EVERY PENNY and it will help ensure that more of this great stuff is released.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very cool Ultradisc(s), Keep them Coming January 21, 2004
Format:DVD
Now I can stop trying to explain to my kids who Ultraman is!
Overall I am quite pleased with this one and my five year old son is enthralled. I do have to complain (mildly) about the lack of an english dub so I would'nt have to read all the dialog for him. However if the other option is to get the silly chopped up Power Rangers style version they did for Fox then I prefer this one by far(I do hope they do a better job with the extras on the other three sets).
Ultraman was part of my childhood so it is great to see DVD quality material here in the US. Hopefully it will keep coming!

5.0 out of 5 stars All you Ultra needs December 21, 2003
Format:DVD
THis is without a doubt a must get, even for the someone who, casaually likes the show. I mean the japanese version is soooo much better than that dubb stuff you saw on Foxbox. The shirt diffently is a collects item too.
The dvd sound and picture clarity is frightfully good. Almost too good to be true actually. Overall, this is the prize of my dvd collect, and that is saying a heck of a lot since i own over 300 dvds. Cant wait for the next 3 vols to finish it up. Maybe if the dvd says do good. They might do Dyna next. A Ultra series, that in my opionen is better than Tiga.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Entry into the Ultra Series March 16, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Monsters - A
Comments: All pretty neat, more polished costumes than original series.
Special Effects B
- Terrible CGI
- minitures more detailed
- You can still see the wires sometimes(!)
(which is actually kinda cool)
- mecha-minitures more detailed
- more composite shots, most well-done
-> I wish they would blow up the monsters, rather than use
the VERY poorly done CGI explosions when the monsters are off'd by Tiga <-
Stories B+
- Must be tough to incorporate a giant monster
into the script every week
Sets A
- BIG improvement, sets look believable
as do the costumes
Cinematography C
- nice composition and subdued lighting but
this looks like it was shot on DV, and has a
"video-y" quality
Direction C
- pedestrian live action sequences in most episodes
Music D
- terrible. Japanese pop-synth uggh! Remember the great
march themes of the original?
Overall a worthwhile entry into the Ultra Series. Improvements intechnology have resulted in broader scope of episodes. Effects have improved but are uneven - but are always bountiful, vivid, and entertaining more than realistic. If there's one area Tsburaya should improve in future series entries, it's the music. Stories are good. Looking forward to the rest of the Tiga series and beyond. (Rena - is played by Hiatta's daughter from the original series, is quite easy on the eyes : )
Overall B

4.0 out of 5 stars Good DVD for All Ultra fans December 26, 2003
Format:DVD
As an Ultraman fan for more than 30 years, it is no doubt that this DVD is a most wonderful gift for us. Thanks for 4-kids to bring this original Japanese vision to USA. I have seen all Ultraman Tiga, Dyna, Gaia and new Cosmos series (most in Asian VCD format) and own Ultraman Tiga original soundtrack, but I still bought this set as part of collection because DVD has best quality in picture and sound. I think the original theme, end song and soundtrack are much better. I do not give 5 stars for minor reasons, my suggestions to the furture Ultraman Tiga volumes are - 1. Do not add any other trailers at the beginning. 2. Install more Asian subtitles with English, I know Ultraman series are very popular in Asian Countries,such as Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Taiwan, it will be perfect if all those subtitles are available in DVD. Therefore I can buy lots of set for my friends. 3. It is good to have English vision theme song as bonus features, but it will be better to add original Ultraman theme song MTV in DVD.
