Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Hilarious: Masato Shimon complete collection

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! :D

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! :D
And the last one with the helicopter coming out of the head is simply hilarious!!

Had enough? :P

    Masato does the Star wars theme too. He looks really goofy with an Afro hairstyle too!
