Ultraman Ace began life in the form of three different series that became one titled Ultra A. Unfortunately, Tsuburaya learned that title had already been taken by a toy company, and as such, the name of the show became Ultraman Ace. To distinguish itself from its predecessors, Ultraman Ace introduced the concept of two people merging together to become the titular hero, along with a group of reoccuring main villains to compete with what Toei was doing at the time via Kamen Rider. Does Ultraman Ace fully utilize its innovations or is it nothing more than wasted potential? Watch to find out.
