January marks both the birth and death of Shotaro Ishinomori, the man behind arguably the most identifiable tokusatsu to various generations. To honor this him, we’re taking a look at his life and body of work today on January 25th, the man’s birthday.
Articles on the Tokusatsu Network are regularly published themed posts, such as “This Week in Tokusatsu Actor Blogs” and “The History of Tokusatsu”
Every Saturday, a member of the Tokusatsu Network staff will post an article pertaining to anything tokusatsu related. To start things off, here are my opinions on Ultraman Ginga and what I believe went wrong with the show.
The actor, Hiroshi Fujioka, who portrayed the original Kamen Rider, will be reprising his role in Heisei Rider VS Showa Rider: Kamen Rider Taisen feat. Super Sentai.
The upcoming Kikaider movie now has its official title, Kikaider REBOOT, and has now started filming.
If you’re a mild tokusatsu fan, you know of Super Sentai. If you’re a bit more hardcore, you know of Kamen Rider and Metal Heroes and, if you’re really into this stuff, then you know about Toei’s other other tokusatsu franchise: the Fushigi Comedy Series.
