I want to get into Tokusatsu, what should I watch?
What series would give me the basic knowledge of this gender, enough to understand references in current shows, parodies and homages?
It's no problem if it's not an english subbed serie, I can mostly understand Japanese.

You're in luck because I'm a toku nut myself. Things I recommend for beginners include:

-Ultraman 1966
-Ultraseven
-Ultraman 80
-Ultraman Powered
-Ultraman Tiga
-Ultraman Neos
-Ultraman Nexus
-Ultraman Max
-Giant Robo/Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot (dub names aside it is the same show)
-Android Kikaider
-Space Sheriff Gavan or Sharivan (hold off on Shaider until you watch the other two)
-Inazuman (the first series is very standard toku, Flash is awesome as fuck though)
-Kamen Rider 1971
-Kamen Rider Stronger
-Kamen Rider Black and RX
-Kamen Rider Kiva
-Kamen Rider Decade
-Kamen Rider OOO

Super Sentai has a lot of good stuff which are all beginner friendly. Any of the original five are fine on their own, Changeman and Turboranger give off a nice 80s feel, and Fiveman and Zyuranger are entertaining as hell. Ohranger is awesome too despite the complaints on /m/, but that is more for people that have watched a lot of the previous sentai.


Only bad tokusatsu out there are Kamen Rider Kabuto and Bio Planet WoO; ignore anyone that says Ultraman Ginga is bad (it isn't).

Thanks anon, I'll make sure to watch your recommendations.

No prob. Just remember these are beginner recs, I left out a lot of better toku because they are not as beginner friendly (IE other Showa Ultraman shows, Ultraman Dyna, Kamen Rider Skyrider/Black RX/Fourze/Drive, Kaiketsu Zubat, etc.)

>forgot to type in Ultraman Gaia and Mebius
Whoops

Perfect, there's a related thread.

Would anyone here happen to have the screencaps of the scene in Ultraman where
Ryu Aihara says: Just look around you! You call yourself Ultraman? You didn't protect a damn thing!

It's been passed around a lot, but google search yields nothing
