Tokusatsu superheroes have arrived in city
Attention! Tokusatsu superheroes have arrived and assembled in Shanghai!
With the opening of the "Tamashii Nations x Heroes Station" carnival, Ultraman, Kamen Rider and Super Sentai appeared at the IMIX Park mall on Saturday. This is the first time the top three have been exhibited together.
Translating to "special effects" in Japanese, tokusatsu usually refers to live-action effects-heavy Japanese films and TV shows, somewhere between fantasy and science fiction.
Tomoya Warabino, the leading actor of the 33rd entry of the Ultraman Series: Ultraman Blazar gave a special performance at the opening.
Through January 3, 2024, stage shows of battles between superheroes and monsters will be presented every weekend. There will be fan meetings as well.
Don't worry if you can't make it to the shows because there's more to explore at the 1,000-square-meter exhibition area.
Five-meter-high Ultraman Tiga, Ultraman Dyna and Ultraman Gaia stand at the outdoor square for you to take photos with.
Inside the mall, life-sized Ultraman Z, Delta Rise Claw, Kamen Rider Zero-One and other characters are also on display, some set against a backdrop of classic scenes in the TV series.
Also, special products, including limited editions that have debuted at the carnival, are available at pop-up stores.
