Sayaka will be the leader of EDF-U, Sae will be the assault unit captain, Ayaka will play the vice-leader, Yuka and Kana will be the maintenance team, while Sumire will be the medical officer and Haruka will handle communications.

Sayaka when asked about AKB48 taking part in the movie responded by saying “I think it’s our mission to give people courage after the disasters.”

With the Ultraman films being a big budget and highly popular film series, this will be a golden opportunity to spread the name of AKB48 members in a non idol way.

The film will debut in theaters next year on March 24
