Through NihonHero we have sampled the theme song for the upcoming Ultraman Ginga TV series. The song is titled “Theme of Ultraman Ginga” and is performed by Yuji Inoue, guitarist of the J-pop group Girl Next Door.

Ultraman Ginga is produced by Tsuburaya Productions who are celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2013. The series will premiere in Japan on July 10, 2013. The album to the series will be released July 24, 2013.

The series stars Takuya Negishi, Mio Miyatake, Mizuki Ohno, Kirara Asuka and Takuya Kusakawa.

Although a Japanese creation, Ultraman has been influential internationally in geek culture. A prime example is Devo and their recent music video Monster Man.
