Toku Review Round-up! (December 6th, 2020)

Hello, and welcome back to the Toku Review Round-up! As we get closer and closer to the end of the year, Tokusatsu TV never stops, bringing with it more clashing swords, ‘crystalians’, corporate restructuring and plenty more exciting things! The currently airing Ultraman Z, Mashin Sentai Kiramager and Kamen Rider Saber definitely aren’t slowing down […]

Toku Review Round-up! (November 1st, 2020)

Teamwork is a theme that is pervasive throughout tokusatsu, and in 2020, the genre seems practically synonymous with this idea, with all the popular shows of the year regularly highlighting the importance of trusting others and working together. It’s certainly nothing new, but I think it’s dominated the thematic layers of Kiramager, Kamen Rider and […]

Toku Review Round-up! (October 17th, 2020)

If there’s anything this current lineup of Tokusatsu shows (and reviewing them fortnightly) has taught me, it’s that a ‘good vibe’ can carry a tokusatsu show pretty far. As I mentioned in last week’s edition of the review round up, Kamen Rider’s Saber has done a lot to keep itself charming, even when I foresee […]

Toku Review Round-up! (October 4th, 2020)

It’s that time again, we’re reviewing more episodes of Tokusatsu TV! As always, we’ve had another fortnight of explosive and awe-inspiring action in Kiramager, Ultraman Z and Kamen Rider Saber.

Toku Review Round-up! (17th September, 2020)

Welcome back to the Toku-Review Round-up! It’s been another interesting fortnight of Tokusatsu TV with the debut of Kamen Rider Saber, and the continuation of the amazing Ultraman Z and Mashin Sentai Kiramager. I think it’s fair to say expectations are high for all of these shows at this point – Z and Kiramager because […]

Toku Review Round-up! (August 30th, 2020)

Here we are again, after another eventful fortnight. Just as the earth keeps turning and 2020 continues to be the worst thing ever, we were once again treated to more kaiju-crushing outings in Ultraman Z, sparkling adventures in Mashin Sentai Kiramager, and the beginning of the end in Kamen Rider Zero-One. I can always count […]

Toku Review Round-up! (August 2nd, 2020)

Hello, and welcome to another edition of Toku Review Round-Up! Some interesting stuff has been happening in the world of tokusatsu over the past few weeks, such as the reveal of Kamen Rider Saber, the new series featuring a sword & book wielding hero that will succeed Zero-One in about a month’s time. There’s things […]

Toku Review Round-up! (July 19th, 2020)

Looks like it’s that time again; I’m back once more to review recent episodes of the latest tokusatsu shows! Compared to the state of the world, the current climate of Tokusatsu could be described as ‘aggressively normal’ – there’s many quality shows airing, and everyone’s got their hot takes. As Zero-One nears its conclusion, speculation […]

Toku Review Round-Up! (July 4th, 2020)

Hello, and welcome to the first ever ‘Toku Review Round-Up!’ on the Toku Toy Store! I’m Adam – you may remember me from some other things I’ve written recently for this site, such as my ‘What makes a great Kamen Rider villain?’ piece and my recaps of the currently airing Super Hero Time Shows Machine […]
