The Tokusatsu wiki last edited by FoogleSmoogle on 09/19/13 02:06AM View full history

Tokusatsu is a Japanese term that means "special filming". As a genre it refers to pretty much any live-action production that makes extensive use of special effects. In the literal sense, anything from Wonder Woman to Doctor Who could be considered tokusatsu but, much like "anime", it is used colloquially in English to refer specifically to shows and movies of Japanese origin or adapted from them.

Being a popular and influential genre in Japan, many Japanese developers apply inspiration from various Tokusatsu works into their games.
