Maser Patrol podcast episode 19: Tokusatsu 101 (Rehearsal)

Several people asked for me to post the Tokusatsu: The World of Japanese Special effects presentation slides from this year’s Anime Milwaukee convention. I don’t have the audio from that panel, but I did get a recording of a practice first-pass that I did for Andy, Josh, and Amanda. Naturally it’s not as polished as the final version, but it hits on most of the same points (plus it’s free!).

Because it’s a slide show, we’re trying something a little different for this episode and going with video instead of just audio. Hope you enjoy, and let us know what you think!

  1. Ha, I started watching your video, and I was quite surprised to see that you used the screen shot that I took and posted on Toho Kingdom from Love Hina! (To be fair, my brother may have taken the screen shot for me…)

    Yep, I think a few things from the “Sightings” article made it in there. What can I say, it’s a great source!

    first I really enjoyed your podcast, when you were talking about how the Metal Heroes influenced Robocop, it should be noted that Robocop started as a proposed Judge Dredd film.

    • kevnder says:

      Yeah, I could have phrased that better. Robocop had several major influences, also including 8man and Frankenstein; Metal Heroes was one of the things that the design team looked to for inspiration.

      We might have to do a show or article on Robocop and his Robo-copies (e.g. Jiban, Lady Battle Cop, Robo Vampire) at some point.
