Tiger Joe PVC

I’m of two minds about the classic Kaiketsu Lion Maru tokusatsu series. I basically love everything about it… except for the heroes. The character designs of the lead and his rival Tiger Joe sort of creep me out. Tiger I find creepier than Lion, because whereas Lion Maru is at least fully clothed, Tiger Joe is walking around PANTLESS! Seriously, look at the above image in anthropomorphic terms – if he’s human, he’s wearing a cape, a chestplate, cowboy boots with spurs, and a smile. Ew…
