Tokusatsu The Other Other Con-Bait
So, some of you would be asking "Dave, my good sir, what be this Tokusatsu gibberish?" Well, while the word translates into something different, the term is used to categorize live-action shows centered around transforming superheroes. Remember Power Rangers? It was an adaptation of one of those. VR Troopers? Same deal. Kamen Rider Dragon Knight in 2009? Also that.
Now, i'm not just making this topic because i'm going to be re-making a video series about the genre in the coming months, oh no no no. It was mostly to complement the anime and video game threads, and with a fanbase that's as large as the one for this comic, surely there are at least SOME fans of it.
So go nuts! Tell us what shows you've been watching, what's your favorite iteration of whatever franchise, gush about characters, complain about cheesy 70s special effects, rave about the possibilities of the upcoming anniversary years for the Super Hero Time block, whatever!

This is kind of an obscure subject.

I wasn't necessarily expecting a crapton of responses to begin with, but just... meh.
