A brief history of tokusatsu will be followed by an overview of currently running/recently aired series of the various flagship franchises (such as Kamen Rider and Ultraman), along with clips being played. There will be an open discussion of several topics ranging from homages in other media to the future of the industry, as well as a few games and group activities.
