During the latter years of my adolescence, I was obsessed with Japan. My gateway to the land of the rising sun was my craze for Power Rangers during childhood, through which I discovered Super Sentai and Kamen Rider. I was fascinated by the long and rich history of Tokusatsu and loved just about everything to do with colourful superheroes in spandex or armour fighting weird monsters only Japan could conjure up! I was admittedly a big Japanophile with rose-tinted classes gazing across the Pacific thinking the grass was greener on the other side… until I finally realized how great my life actually was in Canada. Not my proudest years, but it certainly gave me the sense of style and confidence I have today since 2015.
