We sleep through episode 18, then watch as D.R.L.N. sends the bad robot to go fight the Ultramen.
PIGMON THE BEST.
You know what’s cooler than new weapons and new forms? Fusion, baby! Along with the introduction of Ultraman Ruebe, we get some pretty stellar parenting from Papa Minato.
The mysterious goth gives Aizen, Rosso and Blu power-ups, then makes them fight. Asahi realises she’s weird. I want a pet space narwhal.
A powered-up Horoboros proves too strong for the Ultramen, leaving all three of them hospitalised. After three very obvious hints, Asahi finally figures out the human identities of Rosso and Blu. Also, she might be an alien now?
The conflict between Aizen and the Minato brothers reaches boiling point, as they duke it out in public view. A mysterious woman who is definitely not the missing mother shows up and summons an even more powerful Horoboros, to the surprise of all three Ultramen.
Not content with having his pizza cutter stolen, Aizen targets Rosso and Blu while they’re having a family picnic. He challenges them to a final exam to prove who is the better Ultraman, before summoning a furry for them to fight.
