Existences of canon couples in recent Ultra series (that I've seen)... 
23rd-Aug-2010 01:57 am
This is a little expansion on what I wrote as a comment in my previous entry on Ultraman Nexus. For spoiler reason, I would mark out names whenever I outright state them (most of the time, only when it might not be clear who I'm talking about). Most of the time I consider a couple canon only if there seem to be real compelling evidences that the show creators like me to think so. That said, there is no guarantee of accuracy of this list since I'm mostly going by memory, and I haven't seen some of these series recently.

Ultraman Tiga - I think there are at least two canon couples. And both of those are not ambiguous at all.

Ultraman Dyna - Not sure, but probably at least one.

Ultraman Gaia - I think at least two, though I'm wibbling on one, since it seems to be canon only much later.

Ultraman Neos - I've forgotten almost everything about this show (in fact, I pretty much forgot its existence until recently), so I'll have to pass on this one.

Ultraman Cosmos - Seems like there is none (well, maybe there are hints of Musashi & Ayano), but I'm not too surprised since this is probably the most kid-friendly show.

Ultraman Nexus - I count at least five. Three of them involve only four people, however. Since I didn't bother listing them previously, I might as well do it this time.

In no real particular order: Komon and Riko, Mizorogi & Nagi, Komon and Nagi, Himeya & Sakuta (admit that I might be delusional about this one), Ren and Mizuo (the cutest couple in this series, imho).

Ultraman Max - I think there are at least two, maybe. Kaito & Mizuki is totally obvious since day one, and hopefully I'm not the only one who sees anything between Koba and Elly...

Ultraman Mebius - I don't really see much, but maybe one I can say pretty much for sure (Sakomizu & Misaki), and another one I think only if viewers want to see it (George & Marina). In general, though, I think Mebius is probably not the right series to come looking for canon couples...

UltraSeven X - I remember only one. There may be more, however...

Ultra Galaxy - I can't think of any (nope, don't feel there is enough between Rei and Haruna), and I can't even use the same reason I use for Cosmos...

Open to corrections different opinions (and corrections on any misspelling on names, since I'm a bit tired to go look them up). But yeah, my definition of a canon couple might be too strict...

(Only one canon couple icon, I clearly have to get more...)

I thought you would include Mirai and Ryuu in Mebius canon couples ;DDD

Well, if I ever get around to making another list for non-official canon couples (maybe just for Mebius, since, apart of real canon couples, I guess I have only seriously shipped people in Mebius), I'll be sure to include them on that list. ;)

Edited to elaborate a bit.

Yeah, I admit that the first couple is pretty much a matter of personal opinion. That's why I think Mebius isn't really a series that tell viewers directly about its canon couples... But then again, it opens many doors for speculations, and I agree with the rest of yours. :)

As a massive Tiga fan, I always suspect someting between Iruma/Munakata/Hayate lol. As for Nexus, I didn't quite get the Komon and Nagi one. Maybe I should watch again. A long time since i last watched it.
Of course Mirai and Ryu, or should it be Mebius/Hikari ;)
24th-Aug-2010 09:17 am (UTC)
Oh, those three. :) I haven't quite thought of them that way, but separately, I see plenty Iruma/Munakata and maybe a little Iruma/Hayate. As for Komon and Nagi, it's true that you probably couldn't see it much, but since he said it himself back in episode 1 (first time he met his girlfriend...), I would count them.

Yes, another Mirai/Ryuu suggestion (I totally support this pairing). :) And it took me a few moments to understand Mebius/Hikari. ^^;

And hi there. :) If you don't mind telling me, I was curious as to how you came across my journal...

Oh, Sorry if i've been rude to pop up like this.
I was googling for some ultraman ost yesterday and come across your journal. Hello ^__^

And I see what you mean about Komon and Nagi. Could be an obvious relationship if not for the changes to the script.*sigh*

Could be an obvious relationship if not for the changes to the script.
Er...I'm not quite sure what you mean by that. Is that about Komon having another girlfriend? Or is there something else I have missed?

You might know Nexus is cut short halfway through filming because of the poor ratings. So what Komon said in the first episode could suggest a possible relationship in the original script. Just my guessing though.
Hope you can understand. I do feel a bit shaky typing in English. :)

Well, I did hear something about Nexus being canceled, but I don't know how true that was. Anyway, I don't take what Komon said in the first episode to be suggesting a possible relationship as much as a confirmation that there is, indeed, a relationship. But yes, it's still very much a matter of interpretation (Nagi being his strength or something, which could be kind of romantic) and I think it's actually better that people who watch the same show don't always see the same things in it. :)

And it's fine. I understand you. :)

No, I love receiving comments. ^^ I only asked because I hadn't seen you around before. And thanks for letting me know how you found me. Don't actually remember which ost I have put up, though, but hope it's the one you were looking for. :)
