A tokusatsu film that features Ultramen: Tiga, Dyna, Gaia, Mebius and Ultra Brothers.

Catchphrase: I will protect this world (この世界を、僕が守る)

Plot[edit]

In a parallel universe in Yokohama City, Daigo, Asuka and Gamu are brothers. The three grew up watching Ultraman on TV, in a world where kaijus and real Ultramen do not exist. They become ordinary adults, with Daigo working as a tour guide, Asuka as a ball boy, and Gamu as a museum curator, forgetting their glamorous childhood dreams of becoming an astronaut, professional baseball player, and rocket scientist, respectively.

After a strange mirage appearing in the skies of Yokohama City, Daigo begins to experience visions of kaijus, Ultramen, and a destroyed city. The visions unfold into reality as kaijus rampage the city. Daigo then meets Hibino Mirai, Ultraman Mebius, who tells him that he has to gather the 7 warriors in order to save the world.
