    I hate to nitpick but your saying the name wrong… like A LOT!

    It’s pronounced Mo-be-us.. I say this because the design for Mebius is based on a Möbius Strip. Basically it’s this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eb-Fi8GI6PE. That version of the name is actually just the Subbers Romanizing the Japanese pronouction of the word.

    Don’t believe me … go type that word in Google Translate and have it translated to Japanese… you’ll find I’m actually right.

    I’m not trying to be the bad guy or anything, as I loved your review to DEATH.. it’s just that one little thing that I’m not really sure if you knew about.

    About the part where you said how none of the other Heisei Ultras didn’t appear because they existed in different universes, there are two exceptions to that.

    Ultraman Max is actually from the Showa Universe. Despite protecting Earth in another timeline, Max did state that he was from the Land of Light in the M-78 Nebula. The same galaxy as Mebius and the Ultra Brothers (with the exception of the Leo Brothers) originated from. And at the series finale, Max went back to the Showa Universe. This also evident in Ultra Galaxy Legend the Movie & Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial, where Max appeared as a cameo confirming that he is from the Land of Light.

    Ultraman Noa may not have originated from the same universe, but it was officially stated that he did appear in the Showa Universe when Dark Zagi attacked the Land of Light. If you remember the end of Ultraman Nexus, where Noa regained the power he lost trying to seal the rift that allowed Zagi to enter the Showa Universe. It was also officially confirmed that he even appeared in the same universe possibly before Zagi attack in the original Ultraman series as a statue in the ruined city of Baraghi. And in Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial, it was proven that Noa is able traverse through universes throughout the Ultraman multiverse.

    So out of all of the Heisei Ultras, Max and Noa could’ve actually appeared in the series. As Max is a member of the Space Garrison and Noa is considered to be a legendary hero to Mebius’ people. Why Tsubaraya couldn’t included those two into the series as guests is beyond me.
