Default U.S. Tokusatsu Releases

U.S. Tokusatsu DVD/Blu-ray/4K Releases

Guide
Separated into categories based on popular franchises (spoiler tagged for your browsing convenience).
Each category is separated by best current releases (top) and older or alternative releases (bottom).
Titles with multiple editions that contain the same content may or may not be listed.
Entries are only listed once per category (with exceptions).
Bundles that contain films grouped with non-tokusatsu films are listed at the bottom of each category (with exceptions to more obvious titles)
Please refer to individual database entries for additional information where available.
All entries are included by judgement from the author.

What's being counted as Tokusatsu?
Tokusatsu refers to special effects in Japanese film and television. In western terms it generally refers to Japanese media that uses suitmation, miniatures, and models, with common themes being kaiju and henshin heroes. Genres are usually science fiction and fantasy but also can include horror and action. This list is grouped by "traditional tokusatsu" that closer matches the western definition, and "expanded tokusatsu" which includes all types of Japanese media that heavily uses SFX, particularly after the start of the digital age.
To keep from straying too far- minor cosmetics, period costumes, and gore/blood sprays are not counted as tokusatsu. Special effects need to be a key part of the film or series.
This list also includes international adaptions of tokusatsu as well as a bonus giant monster section.

A few extra words. This was a huge project that took me a few weeks to put together and many sections of hours to research, though it's a lifetime of passion. It started off as me just wanting to compile the few toku shows we did have in the US, and it eventually grew to be pretty large. The hardest part was just trying to determine what actually counted as tokusatsu as many of the films in the "expanded" section I have never heard about let alone seen. I hope this will be satisfactory and a easy go-to for when others ask what is available out there.

For anything I missed or changes I should make, I am open to suggestions.

Little areas of clarification;
-Why the DVD subforum? To be honest this was a idea I played with before and while there is a small number of titles on Blu-ray, most series are only on DVD and may ever only be on DVD. To do Blu-ray only would leave too much out. To include DVD would result in this list to be mostly DVD releases. After consideration, I decided the DVD subforum would be the best fit for now until more titles get released to the Blu-ray format.
-Traditional tokusatsu will always refer to that classic suits and monster stuff, though there are a few things in the expanded section that does fit that category. To be frank, I really wasn't sure where else to put titles like "Sexy Rangers" and "Iron Girl".
-I felt it was necessary to include Power Rangers and those other Saban brands because they are important to the exposure of tokusatsu in the US. Plus Power Rangers is just too huge to share a section.
-I gave Senkosha their own section simply because the little shared universe established in Bravestorm. Toei was also going to be mixed in with the miscellaneous section before I decided there was enough for their own section.
-For the anime section, I tried to stick only to titles that are based on a tokusatsu. There are a few stretches, like Giant Robo, which technically started as a manga first, though the anime really doesn't connect to either. But for me, the tokusatsu version of Giant Robo was the most well-known thing about brand before the anime came out, so I feel like it still influenced the anime. As opposed to something like Tetsujin 28, which the toku is obscure while the anime that succeeded it is more well known and influenced by the manga.
-For now, I don't plain to include anime that feature kaiju or henshin heroes but isn't based on a tokusatsu. That would be difficult to determine.
-International toku section was a tough one, but I felt that the films had to be undeniably influenced by tokusatsu. And that influence has to be a core part of the film, which is why something like Cloverfield Paradox isn't listed. I don't think international live action adaptions of anime should count though, even if some of them do have toku-style influences sprinkled in. My only exception to that was The Guyver because of how undeniably influenced it is.
-The addition of the extra giant monster section simply comes from knowing that people will still count King Kong and Rhedosaurus as kaiju even though they predate the genre. To be honest though, there's enough of those on Blu-ray to hold their own thread. I also tried not to stretch it too far by adding human sized or slightly larger mutated animals. I suppose there's some describable classification of what separates a giant monster movie from any creature feature.

Awesome work but I have a question. Why include all these DVD releases for films already on Blu-Ray?

I can get the 2007 Classic Media Godzilla releases since they have stuff that aren't on the Blu-Ray releases, but the rest seem superfluous.

I wanted to include everything because some people do ask if there are DVD alternatives. I made this post for the fanbase including those outside this forum. Plus I wanted to go through the history of releases, I find it pretty interesting how many times some of the movies have been released over the past few decades. The only things I purposely skipped are variant art packaging, unless I felt otherwise inclined to include it.

But I will agree including DVDs for all of the Hollywood movies to be superfluous. But I went all out anyway. Besides, I grouped everything to include the best release you could get at top.

Cool. I'm picky, haven't seen all that much outside Power Rangers and Godzilla. Not really into horror.

Thank you so much for this. Such a damn shame more haven't been released. Hopefully Toei will get their heads out of their asses and take note from Tsuburaya/Bandai.

Shout is releasing Kamen Rider Zero-One to Blu-ray maybe next year, and MB teased a new release for Kamen Rider: The First. It isn't much compared to how much more there is but at least we're getting some movement. Hopefully they'll eventually want to push the brand more here, like what's being done with Ultraman.

Just curious, why include the Ring and Grudge films in the international section? They're horror, not Tokustatsu.

BTW, not sure if you want to include these but Magiranger and Gokaiger got DVD releases in Malaysia:

They're remakes/continuations of Japanese special effects film, so I count them by extension. Kind of the reason why those are listed last though since they don't pop in mind when you think toku.

This thread only gathers US releases. There's a number of Malaysia releases with English subs but that's a venture for another time.

Review mentions bad VHS transfers and burnt on Greek subtitles. Can't ignore all of those bootlegs that pop up under the suggested products too. Not really sure if I can count it as a legitimate release (as much as I want a release of Gigantic Serpent). I'll look into it.

Edit: Yeeah I see a ton of films released by Frolic Pictures that there's no way they actually have rights or even fair-use for. I'll count crap like unauthorized Alpha Video releases but I try not to include literal bootlegs.

I mean, is Thunder Of Gigantic Serpent still owned by anyone? Considering the production company probably went belly-up a while ago, I'd say it can be considered a fair-use release if not public domain.

It's hard to say for sure. If it wasn't from a company that put out cheap DVD double-features of movies that real labels have a hard time getting permission to release, I'd be more inclined to include it. Otherwise it's just pirated copies burnt onto a disc, something that's all over Amazon. I'd love to include films like Pulgasari but there's just no legitimate releases to count.
(I see Frolic also has a DVD with Pulgasari).

Otherwise it's just pirated copies burnt onto a disc, something that's all over Amazon. I'd love to include films like Pulgasari but there's just no legitimate releases to count.
(I see Frolic also has a DVD with Pulgasari).
Alright. (though considering Pulgasari's backstory and the people who forced the director to make, maybe it's a good thing that Pulgasari doesn't have any real legitamate releases...)
