  • Ultraman Tiga battles an ancient evil lurking below in this interesting episode.

    8.4
    The appearance of Ultraman Tiga defending the earth is now starting to show consequences for the GUTS team and the earth. In this episode, Ultraman Tiga and GUTS come face to face with the Kirie, beings who have inhabited the earth before Ultraman and lurk below the surface.



    Carefully plotted this episode reveals that the humans are aware of Ultraman Tiga when Captain Iruma appears on a morning news program to discuss his place alongside humanity. This is a great scene and ultimately propels Captain Iruma into a real team leader role. The episode would continue to focus on her role and her belief in Ultraman which is key when she is stalked by a prophet who wants to warn against siding with Ultraman.



    The Kirie themselves are interesting by attacking buildings from below they are a threat though it does come across as kind of minor, why not attack the surface all at once? Interestingly enough the Kirie also harken back to original Ultraman foe, the Baltans in their ghost like appearances when they are seen downtown.



    Ultraman would ultimately rescue Captain Iruma and have a showdown with the prophet who wars that even he cannot stop the Kirie. The battle between his true form (Kirieloid) and Ultraman is not perfect. It is set in a city and there is some destruction but there are a lot of times you can tell it is a set because when Ultraman falls he avoids causing any destruction. Still the enemy is interesting and the overal tone is one of horror so it's a good continuation and does show that humanity's belief in Tiga will cause problems.



    Good quick action and another lightning paced episode. 8.4/10.moreless
