First episode of Fire Leon available online

Because I’m a bad tokusatsu blogger, I didn’t find out about Fire Leon until today. It’s an ambitious project from Bushiroad, the premise of which is to unite many of Japan’s local super heroes (heroes with cheaper shows, only airing in their own cities/prefectures/districts) and many pro wrestling characters in one national program. The hero is the original character Fire Leon, an aspiring wrestler who’s also battling against the evil, shadowy Jard organization.

Bushiroad is posting episodes online, and the first is already up. Since Japan’s various local heroes are virtually unknown outside of Japan (seriously, try searching for Akita’s Chojin Neiger or Okinawa’s Ryujin Mayubar), this could be a great gateway to learn about some of the obscurer characters in the Japanese hero pantheon.
