Tadahiro Kanemasu is a Japanese man who dresses up in a Power Rangers suit for two hours every day and helps strangers down to a subway platform in Tokyo. He carries strollers and heavy objects down the stairs in his costume. He says that Japanese people find it hard to accept help, they feel obligated to the other person, so the mask helps him out. Kanemasu is now looking to expand his hero service, hoping to recruit others in different colored Ranger suits : )
A few weeks ago, I was talking about the country’s current political situation with my co-worker Sara and then she pauses and says: “Do you know what we need?”. Now, Sara is an opinionated girl, and I love listening to her theories, so I waited for the end of her sentence, which I believed had the long-awaited solution to Lebanon’s intricate problems… And she says “We need a Batman”, “Someone who will anonymously fight for the good”. Weirdly enough, it made complete sense : ) Now we just gotta find him.
“So give me hope in the darkness and I will see the light
Cause oh they gave me such a fright”
“Guess we’re still kids on the run.”
