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 19th, 2020)

Hello, and welcome back to the Toku Review Round-up! As we continue to zoom through the never-ceasing nightmare that is the year of 2020, Tokusatsu TV continues to deliver, bringing with it fisticuffs, flames and many surprises! The currently airing Ultraman Z, Mashin Sentai Kiramager and Kamen Rider Saber march onwards, so without further ado, […]

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. Plots are moving at a clip, and events are coalescing in various dramatic and interesting ways!  Kamen Rider Saber – Episodes 3 & 4 As […]

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 […]

Zero One’s Final Episodes, Reviewed!

In the final chunk of the recently finished Kamen Rider Zero-One, we’ve zoomed in to focus on the conflict between Aruto and Horobi. At first, this conflict positions the two as avatars for their respective satellites Zea and Ark, and then after the satellites are essentially out of the picture, it positions them as individuals […]

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 16th, 2020)

Hello, and welcome back to the Toku Review Round-up! It’s been another fortnight of exciting Tokusatsu content, with plenty of dramatic twists and turns. If you’ve been following along with Mashin Sentai Kiramager, Kamen Rider Zero-One and Ultraman Z, you’ll know that we’re at a fairly exciting point in each show. Although each show has […]

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 […]
