This is the recap page for Ultraman X, the 2015 entry in the Ultra Series and the first one to be livestreamed on Crunchyroll. It focuses on Daichi Oozora, who was orphaned 15 years ago in the Ultra Flare Incident when a strange sun flare caused monsters to come to life from Spark Dolls. Now as an adult working for attack team Xio, with only a Gomora Spark Doll as family, he seeks to build a world where humans and kaiju can live together peacefully and unlock the mysteries of the Ultra Flare Incident.
