The full core team, Silver Caster, North Caster, and our good friend Derek the Bard, aka Bard Caster, all crams into this week's Castranger to talk about the merits of Drive as a Rider in general and some news about Type Formula, Starninger, Kamen Rider Yongo, Shocker's Rider Robo, and the Legacy Blade Blaster, before we talk about the episode.
This week includes Drive being more of a cop drama than ever, forming a bromance between the comedy relief character and a decorative truck that speaks via enka music, and the continuing decline of Shijima Gou's credibility.
The feature of this week in tokusatsu is unarguably the debut of Shuriken Sentai Ninninger. We talk about the family of ninjas with their dad and grandpa as their Zordon/Alpha combo, their mostly uninteresting and thus-far under-developed characters, and the incredibly polarizing discussion on the designs of the zords and megazord, Shurikenjin.
Finally, we discuss the most hard-hitting opinion piece of our entire career - favorite sixth/extra rangers!

Silver, Blue, Green, and North Casters are joined by Noble, one of our more active Cast, to talk about the debut of the Dino Charge Megazord, finally talking about Koda being a caveman, and the smell of teenagers. Then we talk about the newly-released POWER/RANGERS fan film, which has some surprising star power behind it.

Black Caster and Crunchman join us via Skype this week as we talk about Gen's episode of Kamen Rider Drive, and the satisfying finale of ToQger, as well as our final thoughts on ToQger as a whole. Then we talk about our viewing of the first three episodes of Kamen Rider Amazon, the bloodiest kids show of all time.

Paul isn't here this week, but the remaining four Casters get together for an explosive followup to the Dino Charge premiere. Fencing farm boys, exploding automobiles, ice-cold enemies, and more are talked about in detail, then we share our favorite badass moments in Power Rangers history.

Black Caster steps out and Silver Caster takes his space this week. We talk about the reveals of ToQ-Zet aka ToQ-Nanago, Kamen Rider Yongo, Drive Type Formula gets spy-shotted, Dead Heat Mach's debut and Fourze reference, Rinna gets creepier, and Professor Harley Hendrickson shows up to delight everyone but not do much. Meanwhile ToQ-Ichigo railguns a sword, the Castle Terminal comes to life, a train tries to run Zet over, and Akira knows about yubikiri. THEN we talk about the first episode of a Korean CGI animated tokusatsuesque series called Mini Force that takes Hello Kitty rejects and has them transform into Faiz-era Power Rangers. Also, Kiriko becomes Mach, and Helheim infects Africa.
