Kamen Rider or Super Sentai not your thing for heroes? Then good news everyone! It has just been announced that a new alternative tokusatsu will be produced by Bushiroad, the company responsible for the popular Cardfight Vanguard anime/CCG. The new show will be titled Fire Leon! Currently it looks like the show will begin airing this April and star pro-wrestler Kazuchika Okada.
However this show will not exclusively feature its’ titular character, Fire Leon. This show is meant to be a dream team-up of sorts for the various Local Heroes of Japan! All across Japan small towns and areas have their own locally produced toku heroes, characters who promote the area and bear appearances that honor their towns. Some even make it to local television and film! Fire Leon will feature cameos and guest appearances by Local Heroes from all across Japan!!
Much like Cardfight Vanguard, Fire Leon will have it’s own collectible card game also produced by Bushiroad. The CCG will also feature Japans’ various local heroes!Credit: C-Net Japan,RisingSunToku
