Stumbled upon this on YouTube: the pilot episode of BIOMAN!
I remember watching this when I was a kid, but I don't remember the story anymore. Ang tanga tanga ko pa at ngayon ko lang narealize na yung "Psycho Siya" ng Giniling Festival ay ginaya pala sa opening theme ng Bioman, hehehe.
Tuloy, napa-search ako sa net about this TV show, and I came up with these links:
Biomic Soldier: Super Electron Bioman Chronicles
Choudensi Bioman on Wikipedia
Doon ko nalaman na Bioman cast pala si Cynthia Luster. At doon ko rin naalala ulit na pinalitan nga pala si Yellow Four.
I remember we used to "play Bioman" before, and I'd be Yellow Four. I really wanted to be Pink Five, but my older sis already claimed that character so ako na yung isa pang girl. Kung boy lang ako, ako siguro si Blue Three. Speaking of the guys on the team, si Green Two na yung pinaka-cutie sa kanila, hehehe.
So anyway, here's the link to the pilot Bioman episode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oxDCdW-D8g

So siyempre, napa-search na rin ako for Shaider.
Namatay na nga pala nung 2001 si Hiroshi Tsuburaya, yung gumanap kay Shaider/Alexis, at a young age of 37. Tapos si Naomi Morinaga naman na gumanap kay Annie ay isang nang pornstar. Hehehe.
Came across this nice blogpost about Hiroshi Tsuburaya's death, which also served as a tribute to Shaider - http://my.animei.site.tripod.com/jac/id24.html
