Speaking of Japanese Superheroes
Aside from Masked Rider Black, our Filipino childhood was marked by watching Shaider. The show aired on IBC 13 during Fridays at 5:30pm.
Alexis, played by Japanese actor Sawamura Dai, is an archeologist student who discovered a disturbance Nazca Plain. He then becomes invited and trained by the Galactic Union Police to become the next Earth Space Sheriff. He is given the name Shaider, after the warrior who destroyed Fuuma Le-Ar in the past. He was accompanied by his best friend Annie in his exploits with Fuuma Le-Ar.
Voice cast includes Vincent Gutierrez as Shaider, Grace Cornel as Annie, and Maynard Llames as Fuuma Le-ar in the Philippine dubbed version.
Special thanks to the folks at Wikipedia for the filmography of Shaider. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaider
