The Kikaida Brothers took Hawaii by storm in the mid-1970s, drawing island families in droves to Pearlridge Center, the 50th State Fair at Sand Island, and the H.I.C. (Neal Blaisdell Center). The popularity of tokusatsu (Japanese live-action superheroes) has not waned, and a new generation of fans has joined the ranks with their enthusiastic parents.
