Tokusatsu Thread

I mostly need an outlet to talk about Kamen Rider, really.

Binged on Fourze. It's great, except for like 12 episodes when Meteor shows up and drags everything down until Prom.

You started on Gaim yet? It's probably my favorite series at this point.

Gaim is pretty much one of the best Heisei Riders so far, and I'm glad Urobushi is revitalizing the franchise.
If only we could do a Super Sentai as well.

You're pretty much going to have to torrent it. I recommend Aesir for your Gaim needs. We're 33 episodes in, and it's just been unreal. Over-time did Fourze and Wizard, but as Wizard was boring as hell 90 percent of the time I'd suggest you give it a pass. The main thing to remember with Gaim is this. Yes, the theme looks a little funky. Yes, fruits are silly. Accept that and move on, because the show is possibly the best Heisei has ever been.

Yeah, I'm super into Gaim. I tried it on a recommendation and it was the series that made me actually start Kamen Rider as a whole.

Sure it starts as street dancing Pokemon with fruit armors, but once the plot starts moving it gets pretty obvious that it's about the inevitable and impossible consequences of taking the step into adulthood and later the dynamics of power in society. But you know, with dudes wailing on each other with orange slices.

And Micchy is straight up the best character and what made the show what it is. Not despite the fact that he's the biggest tool Home Hardware, but because of it.

Holy shit the Fourze/Wizard movie is just awesome. The fighting and choreography is better than Fourze had ever been, even in the Fourze movie. Is that a Wizard thing? Just super awesome fights, often using the suitless actors? Because if it is, I may end up watching Wizard, despite it's boring-ass story and everything

I'll give Fourze the C=okay score.

Its my hate of schools and love of goofballs that makes it a medium.

Better then WizZZZzard. Only came like 12 epidsode in before I gave up and need the diskspace for other thing.

But I should really give the Fourze movie a shot.

Yeah, sorry you don't like good high school series.

Even if it some of the episodes before the finale get a bit weak, Fourze is one of the best Rider series in recent memory. The main cast is great, the monsterd are great (designed by Kia Asamiya btw), and the antagonists are pretty cool as well.

Disregard anything he says, his taste is legendarily shitty. It's a real shame Gentaro's actor won't be available again for a long, long time. The substitute voice actors they've been using for Fourze's recent movie appearances just have not been up to par.

So what are the big difference between Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, besides the superficial stuff like Sentai being team-based and with zords, and Kamen Rider being about flying kicks?

The way I see it, Kamen Rider is like Super Sentai's tougher big brother.
Or for the bigger brother in the family or something.
It has more of an older feel.

Kamen Rider tends to be a lot more serious, and arguably less campy IMO. Sentai likes to ramp up the cheese level for fun, like Power Rangers.

Super Sentai used to be a bit serious as well until Oh Ranger, and because of low ratings and merchandise sells, it became more wacky with CarRanger.

Is anyone else playing Chroma Squad? This is so good!

Basic gist is you are a team of tokusatsu stuntmen who have decided to open your own studio filming a Sentai series, the episodes lead to turnbased battles of your team getting combat footage.
'Teamwork' is a mechanic in the fights, letting your guys aid each other to move farther or team-up against a single enemy, and of course if you get your whole squad to gang up on an enemy that activates your Finishing Move.

Apart from the fights you've also got to build a fanbase and upgrade your set, as well as outfit your heroes with costume pieces (serving as equipment) which can be either bought from the shop or handmade from junk you acquire.
Also you have to answer emails from fans or companies and also hire marketing operations which have an affect on your stats, cashflow and popularity.

Its amusing the amount of little details you have control of,
You get to choose the name of your studio, the name of the hero team, the phrase your heroes say as they transform, what the term for the transformation is, the name of your mecha, etc.

That show that no one saw coming. As part of the celebrations of the 45th Anniversary of Kamen Rider, Toei launched Kamen Rider Amazons on Amazon Prime Japan on April 1st.
Imagine a KR show with the aesthetics and grim tone of Daredevil. And so far, so good!

Seems like a neat idea, the only issue that springs to mind is the designs of the riders is a bit too shiny/metallic looking considering their nature.
