“The continued appearance of giant unidentified life forms known as ‘S-Class Species (Kaiju)’ has become commonplace in Japan. Conventional weapons have no effect on them. After exhausting all other options, the Japanese government issued the S-Class Species Suppression Protocol and formed an enforcement unit known as the SSSP.The members chosen for the unit are: Captain Kimio Tamura (played by Hidetoshi Nishijima), Strategic Planner Shinji Kaminaga (played by Takumi Saitoh), indivisible physicist Akihisa Taki (played by Daiki Arioka), and biologist Yumi Funaberi (Akari Hayami).

In the midst of a Kaiju threat, a silver giant appears from beyond Earth’s atmosphere. Analyst Hiroko Asami (played by Masami Nagasawa) has recently been assigned to the SSSP to deal with this giant and works alongside Shinji Kaminaga. In Hiroko’s report she writes: ‘Ultraman (provisional name), identity unknown.'”
