Arise Ultraman Geed!
Last month, it was revealed that Ultraman Geed/ Riku Asakura would be portrayed by Tatsuomi Hamada. Now, in this month’s issue of Televikun magazine we learn Riku Asakura is living his life on earth, unknowing of his true nature. Eventually he comes in contact with the Geed Riser, which unlocks his ability to become Ultraman Geed. As Ultraman Geed, Riku we learn of heritage as the son of Belial, and battle with Kay Fukuide. Kay Fukuide is a mysterious man who also possesses a Geed Riser, but uses to create and summon fused monsters like Skull Gomora.
Geed’s Forms, Ultraman Zero, & Other Characters:
Similar to Ultraman Orb, Ultraman Geed fuses Ultras together to assume his forms. Early we reported that his base form is called Primitive, which fuses together the original Ultraman, and his father, Belial. In addition, that post reveal the other two forms Geed will receive towards the beginning of the series: Acro Smash and Solid Burning (originally reported as simply Burning). The form of Acro Smash fuses together Hikari and Cosmos, as Solid Buring uses Seven along with Leo. When Geed is in any of these forms he summon his weapon the Geed Claw to combat his enemies. However, depending on the form the attacks used with it differ.
