A story that can be brightened because of this situation
Koichi Sakamoto: "Connecting with the real world to give reality is one thing, but this time the series' theme is to be in conscious of the real world. The protagonist, Kengo Manaka, has a motto of wanting to make everyone smile, and his habit is "Smile, smile!". That's because of the current situation of our world right now, and I want everyone to be positive and bright when they see this show. Kengo Manaka who wants to make people smile is like
Ultraman Trigger who wants to make people smile. I hope that everyone who watches
"Ultraman Trigger" will imitate the habit of saying "Smile, smile!
I want to convey the theme of Kengo Manaka and the theme of this show to children in
Japan and worldwide, and that's how I thought about the current situation. After the 2011
Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, I was involved in a Tokusatsu program (Kamen Rider
Fourze) and it was also my first work after the earthquake, so I wanted to brighten everyone and making it in a bright and fun style. I even tried to shout "Uchu is
Here!" (lol) I want to make it a bright hero as the original idea of this show, but that's because we are ina tough situation worldwide and I want to see "Uitraman Trigger" making
TLDR: Koichi Sakamoto previously worked in Kamen Rider Fourze, a show which was consciously aimed to cheer up the children after the 2011 Earthquake. Ultraman Trigger is like his similar attempt in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic.
Because that's what heroes do
