To commemorate the smash hit of the film Shin Ultraman and its theme song “M87” by Kenshi Yonezu, his official YouTube channel has started streaming a special collaboration movie packed with newly-introduced scenes from the film. The 87-second clip shows Ultraman in different color and the original form of Alien Mefilas, played by Koji Yamamoto (Alex Louis Armstrong in the Fullmetal Alchemist live-action film series).
