A lot had happened lately. I have found interest on bugs ^^

Yeah, that's right, bugs. Men transforming in bug suits, to be precise.

It all started when I journeyed back to my childhood days, where I watched good old hero stuff. I just watched a few episodes of Power Rangers to reminisce the good old days and then remembered, back in the Philippines, that I watched the asian versions too. And found them much engrossing than the american versions.

So with a little bit of researching and youtube's recommendation and help, I began watching Sentais. That's just hentai with s :P. And then while watching the current Sentai of 2009/2010 I stumbled upon another childhood hero I vaguely remeber: Kamen Rider, also known as Masked Rider in english. It was a crossover episode of the Samurai Shinkenger and Kamen Rider Decade. So I tested the waters and dipped my little toe in the Kamen Riders Series Pool, and...well...

The Kamen Rider Series and Super Sentais are from Japan and are so called tokusatsu dramas. Tokusatsu are live action film or television dramas that usually features superheroes and makes considerable use of special effects (tokusatsu literally translates as "special effects").

One considerable note here is how the ratings  in America and Japan differ. There are some themes in the Japanese kids show that might not be suitable for children. That's why those tokusatsu dramas have a much more mature touch than the americans kiddie hero stuff. 

That's how it happened folks.

A warning on my flist: expect me to ramble about these stuff in near feature.
