About Ultraman Connection Live Presents: ULTRAMAN OFFICIAL YouTube 2 Million Subscribers Celebration
This livestream event will feature three cast members from Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga, which is approaching its final episode, and six cast members from the New Generation Ultraman series, which have been significantly important to the ULTRAMAN OFFICIAL YouTube Channel. The event will celebrate the Official Channel’s journey to 2 million subscribers by looking back at the history of the channel and the New Generation Ultraman series which grew along with it.
Note that the cast members will appear as themselves, not as their characters in the series, so we ask that parents and guardians practice discretion when allowing young children who believe in the world of the show to watch.
On the day of the event, we will be taking questions from the fans for our guests via Twitter. Details will be announced on the Tsuburaya Productions Official Twitter account in the coming days so please stay tuned and send us your questions.

Raiga Terasaka plays Kengo Manaka, the incarnation of light and alter-ego of Ultraman Trigger, the finale of which airs this week. Terasaka-san has been working to bring Kengo’s ethos of “Smile, smile” to Ultraman fans around the world. Though Trigger is ending, Kengo’s story, and Terasaka-san’s performance, are not yet done, with Ultraman Trigger: Episode Z coming in March!
Toyoda-san plays the heroine of Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga, Yuna Shizuma, and a deeply talented young actress who has grown with the role she’s made her own. She is no stranger to Ultraman Connection herself, having made an appearance at the Ultraman Connection Holiday Special, and she’ll be reprising her role in Ultraman Trigger: Episode Z!
Rounding out the main trio of Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tigais Shunya Kaneko, who brought the character of young genius Akito Hijiri to life! Though Trigger is his first Tokusatsu role, his performances have been exemplary, and we can’t wait to see him in more: like Ultraman Trigger: Episode Z!
Hirano-san, who starred as STORAGE pilot Haruki Natsukawa in 2020’s Seiun Award-winning Ultraman Z (Zett), has returned! Hirano-san’s portrayals have not ended with the finale of Z, and he will be reprising his heroic role in this year’s Ultraman Trigger: Episode Z, showing us all how Haruki has continued to grow since Z’s final battle!
Negishi-san, who played Hikaru Raido in 2013’s Ultraman Ginga and 2014’s Ultraman Ginga S, in many ways is partially responsible for the New Generation series as a whole! Bringing the character of Hikaru to life in Ginga, the first Ultraman series entry to hit the airwaves since 2006’s Ultraman Mebius, as well as its successor series Ginga S, Negishi-san is beloved by fans for the earnestness and joy he displayed.
Playing the taciturn Victorian, Sho, Kiyotaka Uji debuted as the co-star of 2014’s Ultraman Ginga S, alongside his predecessor Takuya Negishi. Sho is remembered for his growth across the series, going from a cold, combative fighter to a kind, caring warrior truly worthy of the name Ultraman. Much of the credit for that arc is attributed to Uji-san’s performance.
Hirata-san brought responsible older sibling Katsumi Minato to life in 2018’s Ultraman R/B (Ruebe), in a performance still beloved by the fanbase. His dynamic with his co-stars was integral to the family feeling that R/B is best remembered for, and fans are looking forward to seeing him reprise his role again in the future!
Koike-san played genius younger brother Isami Minato in 2018’s Ultraman R/B, bringing a charming mix of youth and intelligence to the role that fans remember fondly. As more of the concepts and story elements created in R/B return and expand in the greater Ultraman series, fans around the world have been clamoring for the return of the young genius space archaeologist, and the actor who portrayed him.
The talented young actress who has played fan-favorite character Ultrawoman Grigio in Ultraman R/B and beyond, Sonohara-san’s portrayal has been integral to the continued popularity of the young female Ultra up to the present day, including the upcoming Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Destined Crossroad. This show will allow her to reunite publicly with her co-stars on the first Ultraman project in which she worked, and we can’t wait to see!
