The fourth generation of the Toyota Tercel was even more dull in its looks than its predecessors, but apparently it was a very very very quick car: even this Kamen Rider lookalike can’t even match its speed!

This Kamen Rider parody called Kamen Norida is so hilarious: he rides a 50cc moped, he dresses up like a monkey, saves plants and trees from dehydration and he fights giant birds, like this Giant duck, by dancing silly and doing flying kicks:
Yes, the duck appears to be joining some nazi lookalike and he, apparently, is very evil! As you all know from other tokusatsu: all eye-patched people are evil.
But of course Norida will kick (actually swing) the Duck’s butt:
And of course the duck will play nasty tricks like turning Noridas friends into ducklings! WTF!?
Of course justice will prevail and the giant Duck will be roast. That’s how about every episode goes…
I really tried to find out what a Norida is, but I failed on finding the meaning of the word… I did find a very humorous passage on the Japanese Kamen Norida wikipedia entry describing it:
People modify the “Norida” also will be remodeled, Hayato character stone (which is converted into a man’s answering machine after) is rescued by escape before remodeling the brain of justice “mask Norida “as determined to fight for world peace
So Norida it actually means the feeling of justice?
No it does not: I did find out on a Brazilian forum that it actually is a wordplay on the name of the actor (Noritake Kinashi).
If you wish to watch more, you can find almost every episode here!

Time to feed you some more tokusatsu! An 8 minutes Kamen Rider compilation with the heroic Kamen Rider song in the background!
I think I got enough of the rubber suits, big explosions, bad kung fu, bosozoku wannabes and sung heroic poems for the next three months!

Masato Shimon is a singer who sung a lot of intros for Japanese movie and tv-series during the 60s, 70s and 80s. Someone decided that it would be a very good idea to actually collect all of them, glue them together and put them on Youtube.
At first I thought it was a very nice thing to do, but shortly after I started with the first movie I came to the conclusion that the guy did a lot of Tokusatu (read: Power Rangers like action heroes), starting with the Kamen Rider. After seeing the third movie intro for Kamen Rider (after seeing all the tv series in between) it became hilarious!
Collection #1: The Kamen Rider collection:
One funny thought came up to me: During the early 70s, after Kamen Rider was aired, the B?s?zoku started dressing up their motorbikes like the one Kamen Rider drives. Motorcycle gangs imitating a righteous cruisader! Now that’s funny!
Collection #2: Early anime (ninja, baseball, etc.)and some more Tokusatu:
I love the special effects of the Ultraman intro. Especially the part with the parachuted godzilla-like monster!
Anyone got an idea what the apes are about??
Collection #3: Kungfu, anime and more Tokusatu:
I like the English version of Ultra Seven!
And the last one with the helicopter coming out of the head is simply hilarious!!
