Tokusatsu are the live-action special effects shows that represent our generations childhood.
特撮/Tokusatsu means special filming.
It’s characterised by monsters smashing up cities and super heroes saving the day.
Godzilla, Power Rangers, Ultra Man and Kamen Rider all fit in this genre.
It is over dramatic, always ends the same way and not classy at all – but it is so easy to love!
