「 特撮 取り出す」

Tokusatsu, or toku, is the Japanese term that refers to shows and movies that are special-effects heavy. Think Star Trek, Doctor Who, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and yes Power Rangers.

Toku Takeout! is a podcast where we get nerdy about all things Tokusatsu.


Shoutout and thanks to @K8TBenoit for our awesome theme song!

Toku Takeout is a weekly podcast focused on the topic of Tokusatsu. Tokusatsu is a Japanese word referring to shows and movies with special effects - and commonly used for Japanese sci-fi and superhero shows not unlike the Arrowverse on CW in the US, or Doctor Who on BBC.

We're aiming for a show that is a conversation between friends, sharing a common love for all things Toku!


Your Host


Hi! I'm Tam, a married trans woman in my (late) 30s. I loved Power Rangers when I was younger, starting with the OG Mighty Morphin. Later a friend would introduce me to fansubs of Super Sentai and Kamen Rider and I was immediately hooked!
