Ultraman Trigger Dark Giants & Marluru Additional Details with Cast Comments + New Poster
Today's Ultraman Trigger Online Livestream had introduced us to four new characters along with their respective voice characters. Along with that Kei Hosogai got the honor to reveal the new Ultraman Trigger: NEW GENERATION TRIGGER poster to the world which you can see above.
Alien Metron Marluru
A wandering alien from Planet Metron came to Earth shortly after the establishment of the Terrestrial Peaceable Union (TPU). Marluru has a wealth of knowledge on intergalactic monsters and is assigned as an operator for Expert Team GUTS-Select. Despite the cute and cuddly appearance, has a razor-sharp tongue.
He is voiced by M・A・O (Mao Ichimichi) who had previously played Luka Milfy (Gokai Yellow) in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, Raptor 283 (Washi Pink) in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger, Chibigaru in Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger and Ai-chan in Kamen Rider Zero-One.
Comment from M・A・O
Hello everyone! My name is M・A・O, and I will be voicing the character Marluru in Ultraman Trigger. I’m thrilled and honored to be in such a beloved and long-running series. I’m ready to join the team and do my part to protect the planet! In a way I will be the kind-of unofficial mascot of GUTS-Select, and I will do my very best to make Marluru the cute, but sassy character you just can’t stay mad at!
Carmeara, the Captivating Warrior
Height: 49 meters
Weight: 39,000 tons
Leader of the Dark Giants, in the Ultra-Ancient times this formidable female warrior threatened to plunge the world into eternal darkness. Breaking the seal that locked her away for 30 million years, she once again appears on our planet with Darrgon and Hudram. She uses dark monsters as henchmen to wreak havoc on Earth as she relentlessly pursues Trigger with her weapons of terrible power: the Carmeara Whip, a whip made from deadly beams, and the fearsome Carmeara Baton. What twisted goal have they come here to accomplish? What sinister plan lies in store?
She is voiced by Sumire Uesaka whom many fans call "Sumepi".
Comment from Sumire Uesaka
I’m very honored to be a part of this monumental show of the Ultraman series. I will be voicing the character Carmeara. Carmeara has a graceful and beautiful aesthetic that I was immediately drawn to. I will give my utmost to portraying Carmeara’s intense love and hatred for Trigger! Really hope everyone enjoys it!
Darrgon, the Herculean Fighter
Weight: 68,000 tons
One of the Dark Giants that appear on Earth with Carmeara. Darrgon, a brutish fighter cut from military cloth, values raw strength above all else and lives only for the thrill of the fight. His special move, the “Fire Beat Crusher”, sends shockwaves of flame driving through the earth with tremendous destructive power.
Shunichi Maki who had recently voiced one of the Warudo in Zenkaiger and voiced Gapiya Seijin Abel in Ultraman Taiga will be voicing Darrgon.
Comment from Shunichi Maki
Hello! I’m Shunichi Maki, and I’ll be joining Ultraman Trigger as the voice of Darrgon. Ultraman Tiga was such a huge thing for my generation that I still sing “Take Me Higher” when I do karaoke, so I was over the moon when I heard I got the part. I want to pay my respects to the long history of the series and work with everyone involved in the show to build Darrgon into a fully developed and exciting character. Thank you for the support and I hope you enjoy the show!
Hudram, the Agile Tactician
Height: 57 meters
Weight: 52,000 tons
One of the Dark Giants that appears on Earth with Carmeara. He is comparatively weak, but what he lacks in strength, he makes up for with his nimble maneuvering and brutal cunning on the battlefield. His specialty is psychological warfare, provoking his opponent’s emotions and using their own mind against them. The Hudrast, a slashing, vacuumous wave released from the blade on his arm, overwhelms his enemies with a powerful wind.
Comment from Ryosuke Takahashi
Finally! Ultraman! I’m truly thrilled to be offered this role! 15 years ago, when I was starring in a tokusatsu production (Chousei Kantai Sazer-X), I remember watching the voice actor next to me who was playing the enemy general (Descal Shoguns) and being completely blown away by how awesome he sounded, now that it’s my turn I can hardly believe it! Since that day, one stroke of good fortune has led to the next, until now – I feel like I won the lottery in getting this part! (lol) I’m so grateful for these opportunities, and I’ll give this role everything I’ve got to hopefully inspire kids out there to pursue their own dreams. I hope you enjoy the show!
