The annual TokuSpirits event became bigger this year. Last year, they featured Kei Shindaya (Five Blue), Ryonosuke Kaizu (Red Mask) , Michiko Makino (Pink Five) and Kento Satou (Red Turbo). And this year the decided to invite two more special guests namely Dairanger’s Ei Hamura (TenmaRanger) and Jetman’s Toshihide Wakamatsu (Black Condor). Another thing that made it special was the fact the event was held together with the highly-anticipated Otaku Expo. The event was held at the Megatrade Hall in SM Megamall from August 12 to 13 for the TokuSpirits event.
The presence of the heroes were definitely felt by the fans who came to this event especially to those who availed the “Meet and Greet” pass. The photo op with the heroes brought nostalgic feeling and excitement. You could even see the fans got super exhilarated while queuing and waiting for their turn to see their favorite childhood heroes. Some even brought their sentai toy collections for signature.
Moreover, they also provided booths for fans who wanted to buy memorabilias and signed souvenirs.
Each day was wrapped up by the sentai actors singing the memorable and catchy theme songs of their respective series. Filipino fans got all pumped up while singing along. We sure had our own favorite song but one thing was common, that certain moment brought us back to the time when we were younger; those times when we learned that the good defeats the evil, that friendship is treasure and those heroes will forever be a part of our younger selves.
It was indeed a successful event that will surely be remembered. We all hope that more of these kinds of gathering would happen in the future. In behalf of the organizers and staffs, we thank all of you who participated and supported. See you on the next TokuSpirits.
