Definition of Henshin Heroes

Henshin Heroes

The Henshin Heroes are super-heroes from the Japanese tokusatsu tv programs (live action) and manga. Henshin means transform and characters of these series always use a voice-activated device (often a watch) or a wand to become a super hero and fight against their enemies (often from outer space or another dimension). This is the most common kind of tokusatsu in Japan. Series such as Ultraman, Kamen Rider but also Cutie Honey are broadcasted in Japan for over 4 decades already. Henshin Heroes can be divided into three sub-genres; The Super Sentai and the Metal Heroes which differs to each other only by the outfit they wear, but also the Magical Girl.
