Stop what you’re doing right now. Do yourself a favor and go watch the latest episode of SciFi Japan TV. Why? Because it’s the best damned Tokusatsu web show on the interwebz right now that deserves your attention. Find out why after the jump.
No, it doesn’t have to do with a hero fighting the forces of evil or some kind of uber-grim Power Ranger reimagining. Instead, SciFi Japan TV–an off-shoot of the amazing news site of the same name–takes you behind the scenes with some of the biggest names to come out of the genre. The most recent episodes featured the likes of Toshio Miike (SFX director on ULTRAMAN SAGA, art director on the Heisei GAMERA Trilogy), Takeshi Yagi (Producer of ULTRAMAN MAX, Director of ULTRAMAN NEXUS) and the man (literally) behind Godzilla, suit actor Haruo Nakajima. They even took a trip to Hideaki Anno’s Tokusatsu Museum that you also missed out on.
