Frickin' awesome. The Fourze movies are the place to bring back old toku properties.

Toei's Live-Action Magic Girl Returns

Before there was Pretty Cure. Before there was Sailor Moon or Ojamajo Doremi, there was Pretty Mask Poitrine - a 1990 live-action tokusatsu show developed by Shotaro Ishinomori, representing both the "Toei Superheroes" and "Toei Fushigi Comedy" series. Almost 25 years later, Poitrine is making her big return in the new Kamen Rider movie.


Sanagiman, Inazuman's initial form, will show up.
