Now as a first volume, it's not bad. actually it went by by pretty quick. but it sets up the premise for shinjiro, the hero in this series, explaining that his father had a left over "Ultraman factor" in his genes that he inherited. Outside of a kid who's trying to appear normal I really didn't get much of a read on Shinjiro. Although Ide seems to have some secrets and a agenda, or that could also just be how interpreting his line, that doesn't jive with his more comedy relief role in the original series Hyata feels the same to me. If you are a fan of the ultra franchise I would check it out.
This was a fun read, defintely recommend this to any Ultra-fan or even if you want a new manga to read, check this one out!

Não temos monstros gigantes, seguindo muito mais o estilo do Kamen Raider, mas mantém muitos elementos visuais do original para os fans de longa data ao mesmo tempo que reinterpreta o herói para uma nova geração.
Quanto ao fato de ser um ebook, recomendo que seja lido no Kindle Paperwhite ou superior para aproveitar o fundo branco. visualmente é muito mais bonito que o impresso, pode-se aumentar o zoom em cada página para se ver os mínimos detalhes, assim como o fato de não ocupar espaço na estante de livros que já está abarrotada.
A leitura é muito confortável e as páginas duplas são muito mais bonitas sem a dobra de página da impressão física. Segue com o sentido leitura oriental mesmo na troca de pagina, mantendo a experiência original de leitura.
A história é boa, e os personagens são interessantes, o mangá não peca em quase nada, só as folhas são um pouco transparentes e isso é algo que não passa despercebido, mas também não prejudica a experiência.
O mangá é menor que o padrão e a qualidade do papel é razoável tem algumas páginas coloridas e extras (o que é bom) mas pelo preço caso você possua o prime vale bastante a pena.
As for the story, The book continues after the TV Show ended and it introduces a new Ultraman (Son of the previous hero), I first thought it was going to be a light hearted read and this book proved me wrong, it certainly is not for kids and is aimed towards an older teen audience. This takes a dark approach to the older Ultraman stories.
The only problem I have with this book is that it finished too quickly and after I finished it I was left wanting more, I will be buying the next volume when it comes out and I sincerely hope the next volume lives up to the quality and standard of the first book.
And I cannot recommend this enough to anyone.
