The design for this explicit incarnation of Ultraman was sketched by Hideaki Anno in 2018. The idea was primarily based on an Ultraman portray created by Tohl Narita in 1983, and Anno captured the likeness of Bin Furuya, the hero’s first swimsuit actor within the 1966 TV collection. During Anno’s time as a movie pupil, he directed an Ultraman fan movie titled Return of Ultraman.
