This thread should be for discussing all superhero movies and TV shows, not just Japanese ones, but there's something I've been wondering about tokusatsu specifically.
It's obviously got a lot in common with Giant Robot anime, and there's significant overlap with Magical Girl anime as well. Robots and tokusatsu can both be categorized as Mecha, while Mahou Shoujo fits with it under the Henshin Hero label. But is there one term that encompasses all three? Or do most tokusatsu shows just happen to be members of two completely unrelated genres?
