Destroy All Monsters just added. As I do love kaiju films and Godzilla, I sort of don't get it since Destroy All Monsters is widely available and has been for quite some time. It would be more appealing to continue to do series that are not available elsewhere or otherwise and subtitled

Well I would think that there are a lot of younger people out there who haven't had the exposure to the old school toku that many of us have had. My nieces and nephews had never watched any Godzilla films until they watched my collection. Same with Gamera and other old school Japanese science fiction. And watching on line is considered easier and less of a hassle with younger folk than buying a dvd or blue ray. As far as I'm concerned, the more ways we have to create new fans, the better!

Wow I didn't know CR streamed tokusatsus! I was never really invested into tokusatsus but in my childhood I use to watch Cyber cops all the time, it was amazing.

I was just reminded of a live action adaptation of one of my favorite anime's that's out there. Patlabor: The Next Generation! I wonder if there's any chance Crunchyroll could pick this up!

I feel should let people be aware of this, and also wish that the crunchyroll news staff be more aware of Ultra news since Crunchyroll has Ultra programming in their library:

I bet they might have a better time starting with Sentai just because of the brand and suit recognition. Zyuranger is finally getting a localized release in America, I bet that'd be a better place to start than Kamen Rider.


They still have to go through legal red tape from Toei and Saban first, remember localization is NOT as easy as it sounds.

I think it would be nice, but I wouldn't use it myself.

Toei is a whole different monster. Their fees are for the 1%. Add Saban would also have to be into the mix, HAHAHAHA! Not even Bill Gates could afford.

Which is too bad, because Toei really does have a lot great properties outside of the Super Sentai. I have a particular interest in the Space Sheriff series and would love to see a decent subtitled release.

Awesome, tokusatsu on Crunchyroll. This might give me a reason to upgrade my membership to All-Access if I have to.
*Sees that Ultraman is not avaiable in my country due to licensing*

Yes, it is too bad. I'm not a big fan of sentai, but there is tons of other great shows in Toei's library. Giant Robot specifically and the movie Kairyū Daikessen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEkDng0WwZI . Would be too awesome to see translated and subtitled. Unfortunately, I think Toei really tries to squeeze as much $$ out of anything they have.

When my brother told me that Max and Mebius were on crunchyroll I signed up immediately to check them out. I was only 5 episodes into Max when Leo got added and my mind was blown. Of all the ultra series, that was the one I most wanted to see. Second most was Ultraman 80 and that was added shortly after. I've now seen every episode of Leo, 80, and Max and I'm a few episodes into Mebius. I truly hope they add plenty more tokusatsu. The shows I would most like to see subtitled on crunchyroll are: Zone Fighter, Return Of Ultraman, Ultraman Ace, Ultraman Taro (All of the Ultraman shows really), Kamen Rider (All of the showa ones), Akumaizer 3, Kaiketsu Zubat, Captain Ultra, Fire Man, Mirror Man, Moonlight Mask, Spectreman, Jumborg Ace, all of the Sentai shows. Even some stuff that's not action like Booska or Robocon. Also they should totally add The Ultraman and Ultraman U.S.A. (a.k.a. Ultraman: The Adventure Begins) in the anime section. I could keep going but this is already approaching wall-of-text status. As long as they keep adding tokusatsu stuff I'll be a subscriber.

Oh, I wouldn't mind seeing good dubs of more of the Heisei and Millenium Ultra series. Dyna, Gaia and Nexus especially. But I did find a series on Youtube from 1967 called Monster Prince that I would love to see dubbed. It would have blown my mind as a kid.

Dubbed?? Hope you meant subbed. There are too many to list for me that I wish to see subtitled. I like Kaiju Ouji, cool show. Actually everything from the Showa perriod I want to see subtitled hehehe.
