So that was the countdown page was for.

Shogakukan Monthly Hero’s January 2018 issue revealed that an anime based on the popular Ultraman manga will definitely get a TV adaptation.

From Viz Media:

“Decades ago, a being known as the Giant of Light joined Shin Hayata of the Scientific Special Search Party to save Earth from an invasion of terrifying monsters known as Kaiju. Now, many years later, those dark days are fading into memory, and the world is at peace. But in the shadows a new threat is growing, a danger that can only be faced by a new kind of hero – a new kind of Ultraman…

Shinjiro is an ordinary teenager, but his father is the legendary Shin Hayata. When he learns that his father passed on the “Ultraman Factor” to him, and that he possesses incredible powers, nothing will ever be the same again.”

 

Expect the anime to make waves on 2019.
