In this post, I'll talk about how to write tokusatsu, Toshiki Inoue style. Inoue is best known to most fans because of his love for hard R sex scenes in the novels he has written based on Japanese kid's shows. Oh, and rivers.
Yasuko Kobayashi is one of those writers with a lot of tokusatsu cred, and with her writing the Kamen Rider Amazons web series, I guess this is the time to talk about how she writes stuff. In this post, I will talk about the recurring things she did in most of her shows. Hopefully, this will give you an idea on how the show will end up in the following weeks.
Here's the final part of my WHO SUBS WHAT Series of the four major tokusatsu franchises and this time, I will be focusing on Ultraman.
Here's the thing, most people who are new into watching tokusatsu superhero shows think that it is basically live-action anime, which they are kinda right about it. In short, it is no surprise that some Super Sentai actors end up becoming voice actors or some voice actors end up in Super Sentai! And so, here is the list of Super Sentai actors that end up becoming voice actors and their prominent roles.
It's been 5 years since Tensou Sentai Goseiger aired its 50th and final episode back in February 6, 2011. We all know that this is not the last we see of this team of angels, but to commemorate this occasion, let's see what happened to the Goseigers, five years after the show ended.
It is common Super Sentai knowledge that JAKQ Dengekitai is the 2nd Super Sentai Series but little do most fans know that prior to that, Toei Company, Ltd. recognized a series called, Ninja Captor as the 2nd Super Sentai Series. But what the heck is a Ninja Captor?
For weeks now, I can't help but notice the number of fans who are complaining about their "precious" Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger becoming a Power Rangers show. They think that it ruined the spirit of Gokaiger and such. Oh come on, I don't hear people complain when when it was first announced that Shinkenger will become Power Rangers Samurai! In short, the aim of this post is to educate those fans that Power Rangers is not a Super Sentai rip-off, but a licensed adaptation.
In the next entry of my WHO SUBS WHAT Series, I will focus on an underrated tokusatsu franchise, the Metal Hero Series. This franchise made a sort of comeback in recent years thanks to some movies. With the magical help of Google and some dumb luck, here are the currently subbed shows for this franchise.
