Ken grows up with his loving parents, Prof. Sato and Emi. Prof. Sato is actually the Ultraman and he has to juggle his time as being the father to Ken and the Ultraman that protects the Earth. 

When Ken grows up, he is now the best baseball player in the world. But he lives in the US, away from his father. Apparently, they lost Emi during one of the monster attack and Ken blames his father for not protecting the family. 

But now his father is old and wants Ken to take the Ultraman mantle. He returns to Japan to play baseball at his home country and to be the Ultraman to protect Japan.

During one of the fight, he kills a kaiju that he thought was taking a valuable item from the Japan. Turns out that the kaiju was taking her egg somewhere safe, most probably to the kaiju's island. The egg hatches and an infant kaiju sets her pair of eyes on Ultraman and imprints that Ultraman is her mother. 

Now, not wanting the KDF to harm or murder the infant, Ken takes her back to his lair where he tries to raise the infant. With the assistant of Mina, the AI robot, they both raise the infant while keeping it hidden from the world. 

In the meantime, Ken finds it hard to juggle his time as a professional baseball player and a 'dad' to the infant kaiju. 

How will he manage his time as an athele, a father and a protector? Can he find balance?
