As has been the trend for many years in Japan, towns and cities often create toku mascots specific to their regions. These Local Heroes as they’ve come to be known, embody the local people and culture. Some examples being Ecogander, Fire Leon, Chojin Neiger, and many others.
Well Nagoya is the latest to join that list of towns with their own Local Hero tokusatsu series: Gramspear, Legend of the Golden Shachihoko! The series will follow Taiga Tatewaki (Gramspear) in his battle against the Osogai. His costume is based on the Shacihoko, a legendary fish with the body of a carp but the head of a lion that could summon rain. Check out the trailer for this latest local hero below!Credit: Hero Shock
