My Taste Fatigue Cycle With Japanese Tokusatsu Series And Taiwanese/Japanese/South Korean TV Drama
One of my most nostalgic moments was when I actually took a momentary break from Tokusatsu. It's something to think about that back in my College days, I still think about the moments I wanted to take a short break from Tokusatsu as a whole. There was a time I wanted to see more Tokusatsu even as an adult. Later, I thought that sometimes taking a short break from what you like is necessary when taste fatigue develops. Super Sentai has been there for 40 years and after some time I wanted to focus on nothing but Super Sentai (even I didn't want to check out more Kamen Rider whether it was Showa or Heisei) but the inevitable arrived. It's Super Sentai taste fatigue. Eating too much of one's favorite food can develop taste fatigue you know.
The first time I took a rather short break from Tokusatsu was so last decade. The invasion of Taiwanese, Japanese and South Korean TV drama was a huge hit. I remembered watching Meteor Garden and I got magnetized into TV dramas that were far better than what telebasuras from the Philippines have to offer. Meteor Garden was just the start then there were more Taiwanovelas and South Koreanovelas that were aired in the Philippines. Later on, I'd also get myself into Japanese drama which is partly a reason why I couldn't fully sever myself from Tokusatsu.
Sometimes, it's nice to actually abstain from what anybody likes. I do still like Super Sentai for most of its good servings but right now it's probably a combination of brand fatigue on its part or taste fatigue on my part. I feel like I want to focus more on the new school Kamen Rider than Super Sentai for that reason. But I'm expecting that sooner or later I'll develop taste fatigue with new school Kamen Rider like I develop a taste fatigue on just everything I like. It's sad to say that while innovation keeps businesses alive but you can never get rid of taste fatigue from the audience. Some people just need a break every now and then.
