Ultraman Zero: The Chronicle (ウルトラマンゼロ THE CHRONICLE, Urutoraman Zero Za Kuronikuru) is a biography series produced by Tsuburaya Productions created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Ultra Seven. This show follows a similar format to Ultraman Retsuden, and continues to feature Ultraman Zero as the show's main navigator, bringing the viewers to movies and miniseries that featured his major involvement. Before its official airing in 2017 in Japan, it was shown in Malaysian television channel Astro Ceria starting from April 10, 2015 in Malay language.[1]

The show is aired starting January 7, 2017 on two Japanese television networks, TV Tokyo and BS Japan at the time of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm respectively. The official website also announced the launch of Ultra Fight Orb, a spinoff of Ultraman Orb which is set to be released in spring 2017.[2][3][4][5]

On July 25, 2017, Toku announced that the series will air in the United States on its channel with English subtitles beginning August 31, 2017. [6][7]

The show's main catchphrase is "It's a fighting chronicle" (それは、激闘の年代記 (─クロニクル─), Sore wa, gekitō no kuronikuru).

Characters[edit]

  • Ultraman Zero (ウルトラマンゼロ, Urutoraman Zero): The series' main navigator.

Devices[edit]

  • Orb Ring (オーブリング, Ōbu Ringu, 1): Ultraman Orb's transformation device, which made a cameo appearance in the first episode, triggering the announcement "special!" when scanning a peculiar card featuring both Zero and Orb Origin himself.
  • Ultra Pad Neo (ウルトラPAD NEO, Urutora Paddo Neo, 2-5): A tablet-like device that featured each character's viewpoint, foreshadowing the next episode itself.
