Hummingbird Tokusatsu Club's General Thread!
In memory of the previous tokusatsu threads:
Toku Club Q
Toku Club 10
☆Watching tokusatsu in the name of justice!☆
Here at the Hummingbird Toku Club, we watch Japanese superhero shows. Why? Because they're hilarious, violent, and have interesting stories with memorable characters. We watch all kinds of awesome stuff, from Super Sentai to Kamen Rider, to Garo. So, what are you waiting for? Make like the green Ranger and join the team!
☆What the fuck is tokusatsu?☆
For those who don't know what it is, tokusatsu is Japanese for "special effects". It usually refers to television shows that use large amounts of action and, you guessed it, special effects. The most familiar example would be the Super Sentai Series, and the American recuts of them that you know as Power Rangers. However, there are other examples out there, like Kamen Rider and Ultra Man. (Also, the first "u" in tokusatsu is silent!)
☆So, what does the Hummingbird Tokusatsu Club do, exactly?☆
For while, we were assigning a specific number of tokusatsu episodes to watch every week. But lately, things have been less structured and we just bullshit in this thread about whatever tokusatsu stuff we've been watching lately.
Be sure to tag spoilers, including your thoughts on specific episodes and plot points!
The Tokusatsu Club takes spoilers very seriously. Even if the material isn't particular spoilery, you can never tag too often. Please give special consideration to currently-airing shows, and tag discussions about "extra" rangers, riders, etc until at least one week after their network TV debut.
For anyone who doesn't know how to use spoiler tags, simply highlight the text you'd like to tag as a spoiler and click the button in the editor panel.
Welcome back, rangers, riders, and vigilantes.
