Man, that shit was an heresy...
Agreed on Justiriser. It was on GMA.
Although, on a technicality, Dragon Knight (aired on 9/Solar) may not be counted seeing it's an adaptation along the lines of Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad.
I guess, we could count Tattooed Teenage Alien FIghters (aired on ABC5) and Mystic Knights of Tir na Nog (aired on ABS-CBN) seeing they're original works.
Ah, the "Rider Change". The localized transformation catchphrase of Masked Riders (Decade and prior series) to the point that even Hibiki says it even when not in the original.
Kabuto wasn't dubbed locally so it didn't inherit it while OOO went full weaboo (could tolerate "Henshin" but Ankh getting nicknamed "Anko" out of nowhere and inconsistent naming for Ooze/Oz/Ows gets to me).
Some stuff you missed about the Philippines:
Ultraman (the original) also aired on ABS-CBN for a while during the 90s I think. They also had Fireman (called "Magmaman" here).
Way back in the 70s before the anime and toku ban, they also aired Kyodain here.
I try to list what I remember for Singapore
KR (all english dubbed and broadcasted on free-to-air TV channels) :
Misc (all English dubbed I think and are broadcasted on free-to-air TV channels):
It's not a complete list because I may have missed out on certain shows
-Super Sentai: Jetman
-Kamen Rider: Black, RX, Super-1, Kuuga, Ryuki, Faiz, Kabuto, Den-O and Kiva
-Ultraman: dunno lol
-Metal Hero: Winspector, Gavan
maybe other Indonfags can fill in the gaps.
also our country seems to be a dumping ground for unsold Toku toys. They sell toys like Kabuto and Den-O stuff. But now we get DX belts that are sold in toystores (jacked up though)
From what I remember (guess the country) :
Message from Space
We had Kyodain here?! Which channel was it? Also hanks for pointing it out that we aired the 1st Ultraman, because I only remember Ace, not the 1st one, as a kid.
Yup it was Ace. I still remember that the Ultras there keep getting injured or something (including the "They got crucified" thing) and every episode ends on a bad note.
You forgot Goggle Five. I hard from a "Super Sentai History" video that Goggle Five was popular there that it had its own stage show in Jakarta of all places.
The only toku show that I know has aired in my country (Argentina) is Ultraseven, since my dad has talked to me about it quite a bit. I haven't found evidence of any other toku show being aired here.
I do know that other Hispanic American countries got series like Flashman, Liveman and Jiban.
>tfw they got all the good shit just across the channel while we've only ever had Power Rangers
Its not a rule because of the authors and studios involved. But, in general, they can be classified as metal heroes because it is not a term exclusive for Toei shows. Cybercops is a group\sentai since episode 0.
pls no hate ;_;
As far as I remember Masked Rider aired here and some years ago also aired Kamen Rider Dragon Knight (didn't managed to finish it at the time)
I think VRtroopers and Bettleborgs also aired on Foxkids
Also for toku movies I don't know if here as aired some of the godzilla movies and Ultraman, maybe fellow anon can confirm?
My dad once saw me watching Ultraman and said he watched something like that but couldnt pinpoint which.
According to this (http://archivo-de-comics.blogspot.com.ar/2013/02/ultraman-vs-el-monstruo-verde.html), the original aired on Telefe. Doblajewiki has no info on Ultraman or Ultraseven being here though.
Aside from that I dont know if something else aired in choriland.
Also, not Argentina but I recently found out that the first half of Kuuga aired on Chile dubbed.
They also had the original Ultraman, aside from Ultraman Ace.
I think Kyodain was aired on RPN-9. Also, like I said, this was way back in the 70s before the anime-and-toku ban on Philippine TV.
Dudes, these are really sad posts... 100% of my childhood in front of tv was consumed with sentais and, specially, metal heroes. E-v-e-r-y f-u-c-k-i-n-g d-a-y.
Mexico got some oldschool shows like Tetsujin 28, Mazinger and Giant Robot, man.
Del Toro senpai approved.
>I mean, >>13834205 is not even toku at all.
Are you sure you're thinking of the right show?
I just love the campy Flip-English dubs of the older toku.
Especially Bioman and Solbrain.
I'm not sure why they don't show Super Sentai here anymore. It's all Power Rangers all the time. Back then it was Fiveman AND Jetman back to back on primetime.
No more Gendums too.
>I'm not sure why they don't show Super Sentai here anymore. It's all Power Rangers all the time.
PR in this region is sponsored by Bandai. It's already in English so they need not dub it.
I guess sales of PR toys were strong enough for them to bring in the Masked Rider franchise, even if they have to dub the show.
Not much, but this is Malaysia.
Ultraman: All of them
-All Heisei Riders (Except Agito for some reason)
Here in Spain I remember:
- Bioman (french).
- The original Ultraman and maybe one of sequels, because I remember catching one episode with a human-sized Ultraman inside a house.
- Every Saban thing: Power Rangers, VR Troopers, Masked Rider.
- Garo S1 was released in DVD and apparently aired in some Pay TV channel.
- Some Godzilla.
Not him, but an update because some toku shows were not listed in his post.
Almost forgot, we were also producing Ryujin Juwara, the first Malaysian adaptation of Japanese toku series based on Ryujin Mabuyer which had aired on January 2014.
Nice to see another country who got Cybercops.
If you turn off your brain, it's ok to watch. By the way, it's a very good show.
Trying to be fair: Toei have better effects. No doubt about it. However, Cybercops tried to innovate more. Example: Toei put 2 guys fighting inside that old quarry and add some lasers/beams, recording it with regular 35mm cameras. Result: simple and nice effects, but not original. Toho put 2 guys inside a full chroma studio and add tons of effects mixing it with a city diorama, recording it using BetaCAM. Result: complicated and pretty artificial visual, but more original.
In general, Toei have a better visual quality, but Toho tried to do more different scenarios. If they had more cash, the result could be fantastic in 1988.
But then again, Tsuburaya did a bit better in the 90's because of D-2. Ever wonder why the video quality of Gridman, Tiga, Dyna and Gaia were greater than Toei's works during that decade? As if they didn't age!
Ultraman: Pretty much all tv-series heisei Ultraman up to Mebius. Funny enough, people remembered Kamen Rider more here.
Also I think Megaloman aired in Indonesia too. My mother used to watch it.
