You know what Tokusatsu is :3

If you've watched and liked Power Rangers, that's an example of Tokusatsu.

It's just a live action show with a buttload of special effects.

Most of the time, it's action and superhero based but if it's heavy on the special effects, anything can be a tokusatsu.

I mean they already got Godzilla and Ultraman but I'm getting spoiled and now I want some Kamen Rider and GARO, if possible.

If you don't know what Toku is, I recommend looking at some Tokusatsu MV's on YouTube

Orrrr..

Check out some Kamen Rider, GARO, Super Sentai, maybe something short like Lion Maru G or some Cutey Honey the Live or something along those lines.


-and maybe Ultimate Muscle

Anyone else out here even like Toku or am I on an island?

Definitely not the only person who likes toku but it's probably a small minority.

I've watched Fourze, Gaim and a bit of V1 and loved them all. On the super sentai side I caught a bit of Go-busters but wasn't a huge fan, oh and Akibaranger I guess. It's too my shame that I've not watched more toku but tracking down subs can be a bit of a hassle.

I used to watch through a YouTuber named Riderfan997 before his account got taken down.

Have you ever watched GARO, it's NICE, bro.

So, who's y'all favorite toku star?

Also, anyone have any idea how to bring Kamen Rider to Crunchyroll?

Pay Toei's BIG licensing fee, or just be content with Ultraman(I know I am.)

I like old tokusatsu. But I can't stand any of the newer ones.

I don't like any Kamen Rider since Kuuga, and the latest Ultraman I liked was Mebius. Saw Ginga but didn't like it as much as the older ones, haven't seen X. As for any super sentai... last I saw was Fiveman.

Big Ulraman fan here, and the Ginga series weren't that good effects wise but X is pretty good. I would certainly go for more of the recent Ultraman series here, and GARO would be fantastic!
