We're now living in a time where people in US are opening up to foreign shows like K-drama, the popularity of K-drama is helping other Asian drama to be shown on CR (I would love to see non Korean drama get their share of broadcast on Hulu). Heck, 2 Wuxia/martial arts show from China was able to get a US release:



This show came out in USA before the K-drama popularity.



I wonder if Legend of Condor Heroes 2008 wouldn't have gotten a US DVD release if it hasn't been for K-drama contribution.

Not long ago, Marvel has streamed the Japanese Spiderman on their website with subtitle:

Should Toei and Saban use CR, Hulu, or Dramafever to broadcast Super Sentai, Kamen Rider, and other Tokusatsu shows online? Would you be OK with those shows stream on those sites in subtitle legally?

IMO, they should, you saw how popular K-drama got and it's allowing other Asian dramas to be shown online some legally and some fansubbed. To me, I don't view Super Sentai, Kamen Rider, or any of the Japanese Tokusatsu show any different from K-drama. I think Toei and Saban should used the K-drama popularity to stream Super Sentai and Kamen Rider online legally. A lot of time Power Rangers and Super Sentai fan complain "if Japan can dub Power Ranger, why can't we watch Super Sentai". If I was the CEO of Toei, and the CEO of Saban Brand I would use the K-drama popularity to broadcast Super Sentai and Kamen Rider on streaming sites. This is not the 90's anymore and we are going beyond TV to watch shows, the high speed internet and streaming sites is sort of helping foreign shows get more exposure in USA. So what's the holdup on showing Super Sentai and Kamen Rider on streaming sites? If we can watch K-drama and be able to handle other Asian drama, then's what the problem with showing Super Sentai and Kamen Rider?

I'm sorry but only star members can request anime/ dramas not currently on the site on the star members forum.
