As we approach the Kiramager finale, we decided to do something a little different. Next week we'll discuss the last two eps of Kiramager, so instead of that this week we shoehorned in the first episode of Power Rangers Dino Fury. Was it as bad as we were expecting? But first, we check in with Touma and friends as an excursion into the evidently-huge Southern Base leads to more questions and the new Primitive Dragon form. But what's this about its battle theme now? Finally, for our feature topic we discuss Kamen Rider's first reboot, aka Skyrider. How does it compare to the original?
Gar isn't with us this week so we make do somehow. Lane's on a decent mic now! This week we talk about how Touma just oozes badass left and right this week on Saber, Garza has his entire emotional arc crammed into a single episode of Kiramager, and Den-O puts out Pretty Den-O, aka the bare minimum required to maintain its license, Fantastic Four style, but it actually turns out to be entertaining?
It's our first episode in a new set, and Lane joins Emily in coming in over Discord, so buckle in for chaos. Since we took last week off, lots of news this week! Big Saber rumors, a big Saber figure, info on the sixth Zenkaiger, Power Rangers Dino Fury info, more Decade 21 stuff, and lots more.
Lane's moving away so this is our last episode together as roommates! :( In Saber, Yuuri pulls another bullshit power out of his ass as a new Megiddo continues to make things awkward for Touma. In Kiramager, a shapeshifting impostor turns what we expected to be a funny episode into one that ended up deeply emotional and a little bit disturbing? Finally, for our feature topic, we talk about Bioman, featuring what might be the dumbest villain names ever.
This week's news features the reveal of Saber Primitive Dragon and Saikou X-Swordman, the latter of which Ichi promptly fixes. Info on the upcoming sentai series and movies, an encyclopedia, and a game closes down, among other stories.
Five Casters are here this week as we discuss some very shadowy episodes. Touma and Yuuri work out their buddy arrangements while saving Yuki from the Yeti, we get our one-episode general for Kiramager with a name that's just unfortunate for English speakers, and our first Showa Rider tribute of the year takes us all the way back to the first theatrical Kamen Rider release ever. What sort of tone does it set for the franchise?
As usual, something amazing got revealed the day after we recorded the previous episode, and it turns out while our guesses on Decade's new form weren't very wrong, none of us could have imagined this disaster. Oh, but Zi-O will not be left out, his new form is awful too. We also got the full suit reveals for Kamen Rider Metsuboujinrai and Kamen Rider Zaia, and they're.... ehh? All this and more on this week's news corner.
