This week, during the premiere of Ultraman Blazar episode 5 “The Mountain Roars,” fans kicked off the online discussion by wishing Tomoya Warabino, AKA Captain Gento himself, a Happy 36th Birthday! New episode and a celebration? What a sweet overlap!
However, this episode was more focused on our trusty Earth-Garon-pilot and mechanical genius Anri Minami. But Anri isn’t just an expert in her field, she’s also got a secret past as a countryside girl in the dub! Who doesn’t love an accent?
Never thought I'd see midwestern representation in an Ultraman show yet Episode 5 of Ultraman Blazar did it"You betcha" and all — Aggroh D'Artiste🐀 (@aggr0h) August 5, 2023
Best of all, Anri’s hometown connection, Mizuho, is the one that warned SKaRD of Lord Dorgo’s disruption. Although Anri heard her out, the GGF soldiers were more skeptical … Well, Mizuho-supporters had a bone to pick and points were made.
But of course, every story has two sides.
Luckily, Earth Garon made up for the time lost to skepticism… Well until he got knocked silly by Dorgo.

It was Blazar’s appearance that truly saved the day with the assistance of Earth Garon and Anri, but not before a special first-person POV transformation.

And the epic transformation was honored by Blazar’s vigor in battle. The yowling man wins over the crowd once again!
