Original Run: July 07, 2001 to July 20, 2002
A kinder, gentler Ultra hero was released in
the summer of 2001 to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the original
Ultraman. The launch of the TV show is quickly followed by a feature
film prequel, and is the first time for an Ultra movie and TV series to
be so closely linked. Following recent trends, Cosmos is another
type-changing Ultraman, with the all-blue Luna and asymmetrical red and
blue Corona modes. The modes represent a "gentle" side and a "strong"
side, respectively. Later in the series, Cosmos also develops the
"courageous" Eclipse mode, with a symmetrical blue, red, and gold
design. The series was extended to 65 episodes, which makes it the
longest-running in the franchise to date, although it was briefly
canceled due to the arrest of the main actor for a crime he did not
This series is preceded by the feature film Ultraman Cosmos: The First
Contact. The TV series takes place eight years after the events in the
movie, when monsters are once again plaguing humanity. Now Musashi is a
19-year-old young man. He joins a wing of SRC known as Team EYES.
Musashi encounters Cosmos again, and the two merge to defend the Earth.
The recurring villain in this series is the Chaos Header, a virus that
either infects monsters or replicates them, creating a more violent and
aggressive version. Lidoriass, Golmédé, Clevergon, and even Ultraman
Cosmos himself. Usually, you can distinguish the original monster from
the infected monster because the infected one has "Chaos" as a prefix in
its name and has a head with a lot more junk on it, and has a power
boost. This series has a lot of monsters that pay homage to monsters
from the past. The Baltans are the most blatant example. Golmédé and
Lidoriass are similar to Gomess and Litra in episode 1 of Ultra Q.
There is also Supittol (with head-covering armored petals around his
neck like Gabora of Ultraman episode 9), Gigi (with distinct black and
white lines and three faces like Dada of Ultraman episode 28), Mudon
(like Seebozu) and Mienin and Gamoran (like the perennial favorites,
Pigmon and Garamon, respectively). This series is followed by the
feature film, Ultraman Cosmos: The Blue Planet, in which Cosmos gains a
couple of new modes (Space Corona and Phantom Corona). This in turn is
followed by Ultraman Cosmos vs Ultraman Justice: The Final Battle.
