[Toku Wave LIVE #263] Has "Tokusatsu" changed? (2018/04/30)
April 29, 2018
Special Guest: Mr. Wakafuji, Toy Collector, has been fascinated by collecting Tokumatsu & Anime hero related toys since he was small. His “Wakafuji Toy Collection” started from one anime record now grown well over 40,000 items currently. He is the owner of "Hero⭐︎Star Bar", unique Tokusatsu Bar in Matsuyama City and displaying a part of his collection and providing Karaoke Service for his Tokusatsu Customers.
And we are privileged to have him on our Live FM radio program, and we talk about his collections and his visions on Tokusatsu future.
So this week we ask you this question:
[Question] Analog to Digital, Domestic to International, and Showa to Heisei Era. Tokusatsu changed its style drastically in past decades. But would the definition of "Tokusatsu" ever changed?
There was a magnitude six earthquake hit Osaka area yesterday on June 19th and left four people died, and some of their social infrastructures suffered extensive damage from the quake.
Our store locates on Shikoku Island, and it is far from Osaka, and there was no damage, and our shipping operation is normal. Moreover, there is no significant delay of their international shipping has not announced by Japan Post at this point and we believe the packages we sent out in last three days are safe on the way to your door.
However, our government warned us to expect possible aftershocks in a week from now. So please be patient with Japan Post's operation for their shipping delay if it happens during this challenging time.
We will update the Postal Distribution situation on our blog here if there is anything more to inform you.
Last Saturday, we started our weekly discussion in our Saturday Youtube Live show to bring more Twitter Questions on Tokusatsu from Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, Ultraman, and of course, Power Rangers series. Our first discussion went with the new Kamen Rider Zi-O starting this fall. We received many opinions and suggestions on this topic, and we would like to thank everyone for participating in the last chat live stream.
