    What is it that attracts you to toku?

    Post by NeonNocturnal on Thu Apr 01, 2010 2:01 pm

    We usually end up getting the cliche 'What show got you into toku' and the discussion ends up becoming repetitive. However, I wonder what it is in Toku conventions that attracts other fans. Is it the costumes? Is it the whacky storylines and monsters?

    For me, I think it's a combination. Throughout life I have always looked up to superhero characters, Batman probably the most prominent role-model for me. These characters we're often intelligent yet strong at the same time. At a younger age I found I couldn't identify with the heroes who we're mutants or other forms of life other than human... it was only when I turned 10 that I started to eplore other forms of heroes. Toku features humans transforming into heroes, when Power Rangers aired I could identify with the humans, whilst looking up to their heroic forms.

    The costumes also attract me to the shows. It's just something about the toku hero costumes, they seem so different to anything else I've seen on TV, naturally being a hero fan the whole hero costume works, but Toku costumes take it to the next level, it's always the teams costumes I most look forward to when rumour season comes around, and I love looking at the rumour pics... even the fake ones.

    Boom-Boom-Pow.

    Not the song, the explosions.

    But seriously, for me...it's probably...

    I'm not sure. I'll edit this post with something worthwhile once I think of something.

    Are you reffering to the general "WTF?" moments?

    ...I like explosions? The action choreography. The...character development. It's basically a real life form of a Shounen manga

    Well, I grew up on superheroes as well as Godzilla and other Japanese giant monster flicks. So, you could say that I was doomedhooked from the start. To put it in layman's terms, tokusatsu greatly appeals to my inner child.

    Secondly, I enjoy the mechanics that go into making one. The suits, the sets, the choreography...pretty much everything.

    And lastly...I'm not a super deep person. I love explosions and fighting. That's not to say I'm incapable of enjoying a well written toku, of course.
