So I’ve decided to start recapping the awesome Tokusatsu shows in the fabled Superhero Time block, Super Sentai and Kamen Rider starting with the current seasons Go-busters and the just premiered Wizard respectively.
I had planned on starting recaps for Tokumei Sentai Go-busters a few months ago, but I didn’t realize how challenging it would be to recap a show from a foreign language. I don’t know Japanese at all and have relied on the hard work of fansub groups like TV-Nihon (for which I’ll be using to recap) and Over-Time to enjoy the shows Power Rangers were born out of.
Speaking of, this is of course the best time to start Kamen Rider Wizard recaps since it just premiered. But for Go-busters, I’ll have to work my way back along the way (and post recaps to the dates closer to when they originally aired, similar to my Power Rangers RPM catch-up a few years ago). Episode 28 is a good place to start though since it’s the beginning of the much talked about reboot/overhaul/sprucing up of the show to stop it’s unfortunately bleeding ratings.
So I hope I don’t mess up with my lack of Japanese knowledge. But I am excited to regularly start talking about Sentai and Kamen Rider here.
