As we approach episode 200, this week's a good old fashioned Joel and Phil adventure as Ichi and Lane bring you a two-person Double Episode Special! We discuss the evolution of Evol, all the way to his Black Hole Form, how Banjo pulls a lazy recolor form out of his ass, Keiichiro giving a deadly poison his middle finger, and Tooma's actor makes use of a well-known sentai trope to prove that he can in fact emote!
Blue and Pink Casters take on new personas as they clash and combine to critique the episodes of the week. We play catchup with Build and discuss episodes 22 and 23, aka the debut of Kamen Rider Rogue and the Super Smash Brothers. We learn and discuss the Lupinrangers' motivations and megazord, and also the Patrangers find a new way to unite in teamwork. Finally, finishing off Precurary, albeit with out Dream Caster to guide us, we watch 2 episodes of Hugtto Precure. Can a baby from the moon make a good magical girl series?
The first formal RSC of the year! The Four Core Casters and our good friend Blaze unite to catch up with a Double Episode Special. In Build, after Soichi's revelation, we discuss the confirmation of that plot twist we all saw coming, and Banjo's expected reaction. Meanwhile as Kyuranger barrels towards their finale, we discuss how Lucky Got His Dad Back Again But Didn't. Again.
Back from ConBravo and packing the whole core crew with a twinge of Orange, the Castrangers unite to catch up with a Double Episode Special! What's this? Pink Caster has discarded the name Litrid?! Speaking of changes, Masamune presses the Rest button, so it's down to the anal-retentive mr. belt-mechanics Blue Caster to analyze everything that changed, didn't change, should have changed, and should NOT have changed. Meanwhile in Kyuranger, we discuss the fallout of the debut of Houou Soldier, sentai's newest hilarious asshole.
Red Caster is busy moving so he can be The New Kid Four Blocks From Here, as the remaining four unite to catch up after being away during Anime North. We discuss the debut of Kamen Rider Cronus, aka Dan Masamune, time god and father to our one and ony memelord, and his amazing ability to shitstomp everyone. In Kyuranger, we discuss Naga joining a beach cult to Space Nessie (LITERALLY), and then Kamen Rider Zangetsu-Kiva (read: Scorpio) turns out to not be a very nice aniki.
The Amazon Four assemble again to catch up from last week. We discuss how terrible but eventually relevant Chihiro is, the amazing debut of the "Super" Mole Amazon, the badass Rose Amazon with pants, the fiestiest and fluffiest monster hunter ever, and probably the funniest way to violently murder anyone ever.

Gold Caster warps in from Montreal to join us while Red and Dream Casters hover in the cloud via Discord as we have our first Double Episode Special in a while to get caught up. First off, Paradox hits level 99 and reveals what he actually is, then we witness the glorious return of everyone's favorite undead memelord GM, Dan. Over in Kyurangerville, Lucky struggles to get out of the Unlucky Zone and nearly shatters our Yossha Lucky counter, then we discuss the proper debut of Takatora Hank Kiva Scorpio.

Once again, Happy 2017! Dream Caster joins the Core Four, and boy do we have a LOT of catching up to do! Toei's been busy killing off characters to celebrate Christmas while we were gone, and holy fuck do we have opinions on THAT. Episodes 11 and 12 of Ex-Aid, featuring The Death and Rebirth of Genmu, and the heart-shattering death of Lazer. Meanwhile in Zyuohger, Kubar tries REAL FUCKING HARD to eradicate humanity, then Mario FINALLY puts it all together. Despite this being a Double Episode Special, we did manage to squeeze in a quick feature topic - What I Did On My Winter Vacation.
Litrid, Ichida za Zeal, and AutoGar unite to talk about the two final episodes of season 1 of Kamen Rider Amazons. What happened to Mamoru? Did Project Tlaloc kill all the Amazons? We discuss what happened, and then give our thoughts on the show as a whole!
The trifecta of the House of Castranger convene after Yellow Caster was absent last week to review both episodes 7 and 8 of Amazons, and it's a good thing they did because the story arc for these two episodes fit together great.
