Produced by TsuburayaProductions, Ultraman Cosmos aired from July 7, 2001 to September 28, 2002, with a total of 65 episodes, which currently makes it the longest running Ultra Show to date. Ultraman Cosmos was also the 35th anniversary for the Ultraman series. It was one of the popular entries in the Ultra Series and also second popular of Heisei Ultra series after Ultraman Tiga.

In June 2002, Cosmos was taken off of television for several weeks (following the broadcast of the 49th episode) when lead actor Taiyou Sugiura was questioned in an assault and extortion case. When the case against Sugiura was dropped for lack of evidence, Cosmos was put back on the air.

Nine years later, Musashi, now 18 and a member of Team EYES, once again encounters the being of light from his childhood.
