'Ultraman Arc'

In a certain town, Hoshimoto City, a towering, distinctive object stands on Shishio Mountain within the city. Named "Monohorn," it is actually a "monster horn" that has been stuck there since an incident 16 years ago. Since the event known as "K-DAY," where monsters appeared simultaneously all over the world, monster disasters have become commonplace. In Japan, the Earth Defense Force handles monsters with military power, while the Scientific Kaiju Investigation and Prevention center, known as "SKIP," conducts scientific investigations and evacuation guidance to prevent the occurrence and escalation of monster disasters. The "Monohorn," which SKIP continues to investigate, is the horn of the space beast Monogeros that appeared on "K-DAY."

"Yuma," who was 7 years old when he encountered the Monogeros attack while camping with his parents on Shishio Mountain, survived miraculously unharmed and chose to pursue a career in kaiju biology research. Despite his painful past, Yuma grew up without losing his "power of imagination" and was accepted as a rookie investigator at "SKIP," being assigned to the Hoshimoto City branch.

Just then, a major monster disaster occurs in Hoshimoto City. In the moment when his strong and earnest desire to "protect the people in dire straits before his eyes!" surges from the depths of his heart, "Lution," the messenger of light he saw as a child, speaks to him.

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

When the mysterious light appears in his hand and envelops Yuma's body, his unleashed power of imagination merges light and human into one, transforming him into the giant of light who protects the future, "Ultraman Arc!" Together with his precious comrades, Yuma and Ultraman Arc begin to chase an undying dream!
