    You Americans are so lucky compared to us[the UK] when it comes to Toku[I know that's not saying much]. We never got that DVD of Kamen Rider The First!

    Even considering how small the Tokusatsu fandom is,OtakuUSA once had a column about the history of Kamen Rider around the time KRDK came out. Might not seem much to you. Neo Magazine[which is a UK anime magazine] had a news headline about China not letting anime in and they just happened to mention that Ultraman wasn't an anime,it was a "live-action superhero show". Aside from that one article they had about being a vegetarian in Japan,Neo Magazine SUCKS.

    Don't take this the wrong way. I like George for the same reason but...I don't understand a word that you're saying.

    What do you mean something extra for Tokusatsu? It doesn't count? Does not noted mean you don't count it?

    Technically, it is. So are Sentai, Kamen Rider, Metal Heroes and Power Rangers. However, tokusatsu is more than just spandex superheroes - apparently Thomas the Tank Engine and Doctor Who count too, since tokusatsu actually means special effects, meaning anything with extensive CGI is in fact toku. Thus calling our fandom a tokusatsu fandom is actually inaccurate, it's narrower than that.
