I'm curious as to how everyone here came to realize they like zakos, and when did you realize? For me, when I was really young, I watched Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles a lot, especially the first 2 TMNT movies from the early 90s. I liked the idea of the "putties" from Power Rangers, or the "Foot Soldiers" from TMNT, and I recall having a dream back then where there was a fight between a hero, and putties, the putties were actually female friends of mine in the putty outfit, and they fought the hero, were defeated, most were KO'd, and they were all caught in a net and couldn't get out. As for the WHY? part of it, I don't really know, all I know is I thought it was hot to imagine female fighters, similarly dressed, being defeated by the hero, who doesn't give them a second glance, because they are expendable hench(wo)men. When I was a little older, I got the first TMNT movie on DVD, and I would imagine the foot soldiers as girls I knew from school (even though they were dudes in the movie, I somehow got over that aspect). Years later, I kind of forgot about all of that, and it wasn't until a few years ago, while looking through boards like EvilBabes and Deadskirts that I found some scenes with actual zako henchwomen (Million Eyes of Sumuru, Amazons vs Supermen), as well as discovering the Female Combatant series from Zen-Pictures. When I discovered Zen-Pictures, it was like a dream come true, as they were dressed similarly to the putty or Foot Soldiers. The rest is recent history. Once I found this site over a year ago, my zako collection has doubled, at least. So thanks everyone, for your contributions. Now how did you come to realize you enjoy zako?
