「 特撮 取り出す」
Tokusatsu, or toku, is the Japanese term that refers to shows and movies that are special-effects heavy. Think Star Trek, Doctor Who, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and yes Power Rangers.
Toku Takeout! is a podcast where we get nerdy about all things Tokusatsu.
Welcome to Season 2!
Well! Didn't expect to be back so soon after announcing a hiatus, but inspiration struck me while I was in the shower. Here we are with the inagural episode for Season Two of Toku Takeout!
It's a short one - but from here I can keep episodes coming hard and fast, or the runtime could grow with the topics. Let's feel this out together.
The Lost Heart
After a bit of a break for life stuff, Cole and Tam return with a little update on Marvel's Ultraman comic, some upcoming Battle for the Grid DLC, and two more episodes of Gokaiger!
We made it to episode 11, gang! Woo!
The Big Abare Armor of 15 Warriors
This week Tam & Cole talk a little bit about some changes that could be coming to the podcast - and then jump into the Gokaiger watchalong with the episodes "The Big Abare with the Dinosaur Robot Drill" and "Armor of the 15 Warriors"!
Clash with a Silver Man
Does Power Rangers make sense in today's world? Should we continue to "adapt" Japanese media?
Cole & Tam discuss!
Then follow along as we watch two more episodes of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger!
It's Still Time For A Privateer
We catch up with Cole's pivot to video, and acknowledge the elephant in the room: services to legally stream or purchase Tokusatsu media in the US/North America!
Did you know Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FOREVER premiered in the US for the first time?
Then we continue our watchalong of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger with two more episodes, "It's Still Time For Traffic Safety" and "A Privateer Appears".
Way of the Showy Samurai
Toku Takeout returns after a week off!
We asked for your favorite Toku shows that aren't Super Sentai, Kamen Rider or Ultraman.
Give a listen to find out everyone's favorites, then stick around for the next episodes on our Pirate Sentai Gokaiger watchalong - "The Guaranteed Showy Samurai" and "Tell Me the Way".
Thank you @K8TBenoit for our rad theme song!
SOOOO MUCH FUNNNN!
This podcast is a blast! Also Gokaiger is a great season! I can’t wait to see what is next!
