TokuSpirits Guests Eating At A Jollibee Branch In Manila
Considering tomorrow is the day of TokuSpirits and yup this is remembering childhood for some Filipinos (too bad none from Jetman is in this picture) where they saw Fiveman, Maskman and Turboranger dubbed in Tagalog together with Bioman dubbed by Telesuccess. So maybe some can remember the dubbed names like Michael Joe for Takeru/Red Mask and Kimberly for Hikaru Katsuragi/Pink Mask and Ricky for Riki Honoo/Red Turbo. From left to right we have Kei Shindachiya, Kazunori Inaba, Michiko Makino and Kenta Sato (which his name somehow got honored in Megaranger).
Still, I can't deny that if it wasn't for the bad dubs I don't think these guys would have meant something to my past. I guess a lot of Super Sentai fans in the Philippines who were 90s children still find them to be a part of their childhood. Ironically, they're the guest stars instead of Kamen Rider considering a newer generation of Filipino Tokusatsu fans saw Ryuki, Faiz, Hibiki, Blade and OOO and Super Sentai hasn't been been Tagalized for a long, long time.
