Original Run: September 5, 1998 to August 28, 1999
Ultraman Gaia takes place in yet another
universe, one that is totally different from the world of the original
Ultramen, as well as world of Ultraman Tiga and Ultraman Dyna. In a
departure from most of the other series, there are two Ultramen as the
main characters. They have conflicting philosophies in regards to
defending the Earth from a mysterious, malevolent and extremely
intelligent cosmic entity. The first half of the series explores the
growing tension between them, and their eventual clash. The second half
has them reconcile their differences so they can defeat their common
The show is also different from past Ultra-shows in that the support
team, XIG, has more personnel than previous variations of the Science
Patrol. The Gaia series has several categories of monsters. In addition
to those invading from space, there are also monsters that originate on
Earth, monsters that resemble Ultramen, as well as a few mysterious
weather-controlling monster robots based on prophecies. Unlike other
Ultra series the aliens in this series are forced to Earth against their
will by cosmic entity known as the Root of Destruction, later known as
Zogu. Zogu eventually arrives on Earth along with a massive swarm of
insect-like creatures called Dobishi, which block out the sun by
surrounding the Earth.
Though Zogu (appearing as an angelic creature) defeats Gaia and Agul,
the Earth's monsters and military join forces against her army.
Eventually, Gaia and Agul are revived and destroy the Dobishi swarm
before confronting the mighty Zogu. They force her to shed her disguise,
revealing her true massive, demonic form. After a fierce battle, the two
combine their finishing beams, killing Zogu in a huge explosion. In this
series, Gaia is the lead, but Ultraman Agul, makes many appearances.
They are often at odds with each other in the beginning of the series.
Their philosophies are as different as their skin colors. Unlike Gaia,
Agul is completely blue. Takayama Gamu, the human host of Ultraman Gaia,
believes that Gaia is here to save Earth and humanity. On the other
hand, Fujimiya Hiroya, the human host of Ultraman Agul, believes Agul to
be Earth's natural defence mechanism. He is at first more interested in
protecting just the planet itself, even at the expense of humanity
(hence the occasional clashes with Gaia).
