It's hard to put into words what Mebius means to me. But maybe I can explain what makes this show so special.

Mebius ran on the 40th anniversary of the Ultra series, and the writers definitely took advantage of that fact. Produced when Tsupro was on the brink of bankruptcy (it was the last show until Ultraman Ginga, 7 years later), you can tell the writers, producers, stunt workers, and every other behind-the-scenes staff poured their blood, sweat and tears into this show.

How do you know?

Because it will make you cry like a baby.

The show manages to celebrate what makes Ultraman truly special in a way that both newcomers and old fans can enjoy and be moved by. It doesn't just pay homage to it's predecessors but adds to them, providing incredibly meaningful and wonderful conclusions to previous series.

However Mebius does all of this without sacrificing it's own show. Ultraman Mebius and the GUYS defense team stand as the central focus, and their development and growth over 50 episodes was a delight to watch. Each character is so enjoyable and feel necessary, thanks in part to the writers deciding to dedicate the first half of the show primarily to them.

All of this builds up to a show that was made by fans, yet is easily accessible to newcomers and die-hard fans alike. Mebius's charm is infectious and you will want to share it with friends. Crying alone isn't very fun, but with friends.... that's what friendship is for, right?
