"Ultraman Arc"

In a town called Hoshimoto City, a massive object known as the "Mono-Horn" stands atop Shishio Mountain. This object is actually the "horn of a kaiju" that has been embedded since the incident 16 years ago known as "K-DAY," where kaiju appeared simultaneously worldwide. In Japan, the Earth Defense Force handles kaiju with military force, while SKIP (Scientific Kaiju Investigation and Prevention Center) conducts scientific investigations and evacuation guidance to prevent and mitigate kaiju disasters. The "Mono-Horn" being investigated by SKIP is the horn of the space beast Monogerus that appeared on "K-DAY."

Seven-year-old Yuma, who encountered the Monogerus attack while camping with his parents at Shishio Mountain, miraculously survived unharmed and pursued a path in kaiju biology research. Despite his painful past, Yuma grew up without losing the power of imagination and became a new investigator for SKIP, assigned to the Hoshimoto City branch.

However, a large-scale kaiju disaster strikes Hoshimoto City. In the face of imminent danger to those around him, Yuma's strong desire to "protect them!" wells up from deep within. At that moment, a being of light called "Lution," whom Yuma saw as a child, speaks to him.

"I am you, and you are me… Unleash your imagination!"

When the mysterious light envelops Yuma, the power of imagination is released, binding light and humans into one, transforming Yuma into the giant of light "Ultraman Arc" to protect the future! Alongside his important comrades, Yuma, and Ultraman Arc begin their journey, pursuing an unending dream!
