Our new series - Akumaizer 3 episode 1!

Here it is, our new (long planned, sometimes blatantly obvious) secret series!
And what an incredible show it is. One of Shotaro Ishinomori's often overlooked classics, this is another story of his that asks "what makes a hero heroic?" The story of Zabitan, a cybernetic Demon rebels against his own people, an oppressive clan of demons that live at the center of the Earth. Along the way, he makes friends and he gains allies - two fellow former Demon Clan soldiers, Ibiru and Gabura - and they fight against the evil Mezalord together.
In this series, the heroes are Demons. Unlike Kamen Rider, they don't into their cybernetic forms, this is how they always look. But even though they they look like monsters, they're true heroes. Another classic Ishinomori theme of judging a book based on its cover. The focus on this as an overarching story is what makes this such a unique tokusatsu series.
A fun gimmick on the show are the heroes faces. Their facial expressions will change in quick animations, but they each feature several "masks" with different eye expressions. It adds a ton of character to these costumed characters.
Also, the usually fantastic 70's tokusatsu score and stunt action are featured. Not to mention some really wonderful cinematography.
And yes, that's Jiro Chiba as Ippei Shima - aka Taki Kazuya from Kamen Rider!
