Our very first 2006 layout
Welcome to the Tokufriends portal! We are a specialized fan media group in Brazil that offer news and various contents about Asian special effects series, known in the World as "Tokusatsu" because of the japanese meaning by "special effects".
Obviously, today many other Asian countries have their own products, and we always look forward to inform brazilian fans about the same kind of shows from China, South Korea, Indonesia and so on.
We are trying to make the most serious work here, because Tokufriends can help brazilian businessmen, companies and TV channels to become interested in these kind of products, showing them that not only USA can offer good series and movies, but also Asia can do it, many times even better.
To the knowledge of the World, Brazil had official broadcast of many series, from the first Ultraman to all those 1980´s japanese series, like Space Sheriff Gavan, Masked Rider Black, Dengeki Sentai Changeman and lots of others. So, millions of people here at least know about these shows.
We are fans of the Asian companies working with these kind of shows, many times we fansub these series for our people to understand the language.
Tokufriends Brazil was born in 2006, and since then, we became one of the biggest fan media, with exclusive news and content, and focusing in the expansion of what we like to talk about.
Tokufriends LatinoAmerica is a brother group that spread these shows to all Latin America Spanish speaking countries, so now the Tokufriends group reach at least 15 countries in South and Central America.
We are not a professional media, nor we earn anything doing this, but the best we can, we help to spread this entertainment.

About Copyrights: if your company does not like us to spread your movies and shows, you can also contact us requesting content removal.
Anyway, what we place in the website (vídeos, pictures, songs, news, articles) are only online until some brazilian company officially buy your work here.
Today, 12 shows have official copyrights in Brazil: Juspion, Flashman, Jiban, Changeman, Jiraiya, Ultraseven X, Ultraman Max, Ultraman 80, Ultraman Leo, Ultraman Mebius, Ultraman X and Ultraman Orb.
You can see we have absolutely no video (subtitled or not) for download or streaming.
This way, we make fansub only to make the shows spread and reach local companies.
