"Tokusatsu" (特撮), often shortened to just "Toku", is the Japanese live-action effects genre[[note]]("Tokusatsu" coming from "tokushu satsuei," meaning "special photography")[[/note]]. Though the overlap is not total, it can, at least casually, be considered the live-action analogue to {{Anime}} (at least, to the subset of anime best known to casual viewers in the west).

Originally, Toku differentiated itself from western visual effects genres by its preference for "live" effects (ie. PeopleInRubberSuits) over the equally phony special effects created during editing (at the time of the genre's birth, specifically the stop-motion techniques pioneered by Creator/RayHarryhausen, now CGI). Modern Toku uses both forms of effect, but "live" effects are still preferred, particularly WireFu.
