Default Tokusatsu Music Appreciation Thread

The presence of the Tokusatsu/Puppetry category for media genres represented on VGMdb is still fairly recent, but I know that there are a good few people on here working to fill it out.
Sometimes, we put in all-new releases. Other times, we revive listings that had been removed due to rules that no longer apply.
But in any case, I'm glad to see a growing archive of music releases for this genre of East Asian entertainment being represented on here.

On the subject, I'd like to talk about what makes the music produced for these shows and movies unique, some of our favourite tracks, recurring composers for the genre, what have you.

It's my first proper thread post on here, so I hope I did it right!

At first I thought you were talking about something along the lines of Muppets / Fraggle Rock.

But I looked up Tokusatsu and it's Tatsunoko / Super Sentai / Beetleborgs.

When did VGMdb start accepting that?

(I was also absent when animé music became a thing here. Where can I read the discussion on that? Just curious.)

The discussions took place in many different threads over the years, but here is the official current scope for VGMdb:

On my own end, Super Sentai is particularly a different beast to fill out. All releases for one of the series, which tends to cost about $200 or more in total, are linked in that credits for material in one release may only exist in another, such as performer data only appearing in the last BGM volume, or song Karaoke composers & arrangers only mentioned in other booklets.
So now I'm working on adding other releases such as song collections and such before going to the ones without important info and editing/adding them.
