The Three Isolated Casters assemble against all medical advice to bring you another episode. We discuss the debut of Yua as the Fighting Jackal Raider, the surprisingly good musical stylings of MC Check It Out, the shockingly emotional range of the usually stoic blue ranger, and for our feature topic, Tokusatsu Gagaga reaches its climax - the visit from her mom.
A full news week comes at you from our Three Self-Isolating Castrangers this week. Train zords, jewelry, a scary cute thing, Supaidaman things, Ninja Turtles things, and finally they announce the Raidriser. All this and more on this week's news corner.
Originally Recorded: Wednesday December 4th, 2019.Talk about your strange episode of Ultraranger. The first clue is the majority of the news is heavily based on Godzilla. Then the Ultra-Casters discuss the Zero & Geed Clip show. Both Ultraman & Tiga were alright episodes. But it was Gridman that took 1st prize with it’s well written two parter, which debut King Gridman!
Four Fifths of Castranger come at you this week. We discuss how a robot's flagrant lack of self-preservation saves lives, how the Kiramagers manage to cram both an "I shouldn't be the leader" and the "I have a life, I don't have time to be a ranger" plots into a single episode pretty effectively, and strap in because our feature topic this week is another wacky Showa series. Yes, it's that one with the blonde wig, and HOO boy does it get nuts.
The newly minted Crimson Caster, our old buddy ChouRaven, joins us this week as we discuss not one but two ways North America will be experiencing tokusatsu legally, the plot of Pretty Den-O, a neat watch, and a figuart Lane is very much buying.
Originally Recorded: Wednesday November 27th, 2019.Their’s so much to unpack, where do I begin. Well the Ultra-Casters talk about how Godzilla Vs. Kong got delayed till November of 2020. Shin Ultraman finished production, and Marvel Comics is making Ultraman Comics?!? Oh and you're average episodes of Ultraman & Tiga. Plus another episode of Gridman and how Ippei can’t keep it in his pants.
Originally Recorded: Thursday November 21st, 2019. It’s a Rodan! No it’s a Super-X!! No!! It’s a New Episode of Kaiju Sentai Ultraranger!!! Ah yes, Ultraranger, the show where we talk about latest gashapon items, Blu Ray releases, and wacky jokes. In this episode, we discuss two episodes of O.G Ultraman and another episode of Ultraman Tiga!
Welcome to Castranger Season Seven! We start our new season with our Yellow Caster undergoing an upgrade, then begin our discussion of this firetruck-themed week, it seems, as Ichi Ichikyunosuke tries to save the plot of Zero-One from a burning building. Then we get into the hour-long premiere of Kiramager as four famous people and one high schooler assemble to make the shiniest sentai we ever did see, but forget them because what the hell is up with this gem princess's face?!
Four of Five Core Casters this week bring you some very angry news this week as the price of toku cosplay skyrockets. We get some adorable Zero-One phone merch, a very nice pen, and what's this about legal Kamen Rider Ichigo in the West?
All Five Casters are here, and also, the day of this episode's release is Castranger's sixth anniversary! We close out Season Six of Castranger fittingly, with a recap / clip show episode of Zero-One, the finale of Ryusoulger, and as per our yearly tradition, going over our thoughts on Ryusoulger as a series instead of a feature topic, and man, do we have some thoughts. Can Tom pull a miracle out of his bag of tricks and make us re-think our position on Ryusoulger like he did with Zi-O?
