We appear to have delayed talking about Heisei FOREVER to the perfect week, because the most recent episode of Zi-O was the start of the Den-O arc, so we get to talk about both versions of Another Den-O this week. The Core Four rage and squee at the return of Den-O, Zeronos, and most importantly DENEB! Meanwhile in Ryusoulger we get a weirdly dark episode that reeks of Highlander. Finally, we talk about what happens when Kamen Rider decides to take a page out of Toy Story. Wait, didn't Toy Story 4 just come out??
Castranger's Core Casters convene to complain about the last two weeks' episodes of Rider and Sentai. It's a Double Episode Special! The debut of Woz Ginga squeezes between the disappointing Kiva Arc and the question-raising Kabuto Arc. Meanwhile, Asuna struggles to have a focus episode, and then a quizmaster sets everyone on fire. I know, it sounds stupid without context, doesn't it?
After taking a week off we have lots to discuss. Grand Zi-O and RyuSoulGold's formal reveal, the movie-exclusive characters and Riders for the summer movies, and plenty more on this week's news corner!
What a whirlwind discussion we have this week. First off, Ichi is entranced by the Kiva arc of Zi-O and the ebut of Kamen Rider Ginga, defiantly so. Next, Ryusoulger has the last straw with its stupid bullshit with this Wonderland episode, and finally, on the heels of last week's Ryuki discussion, we revisit Kamen Rider Dragon Knight. Can we really fight the fight?
The Three Castanets harmonize to bring you a whirlwind Pokemon discussion, followed by the actual show, wherein we discuss how Woz Got His Groove Back Again, Kyosuke admits he sucks, and we go right back to nothing in Zi-O making any goddamn sense. Next, in Ryusoulger, the word is saved by a woman's terrible singing. Also Bamba is cool. Finally, we discuss the surprisingly excellent Rider Time Ryuki special. Did this three parter mirror Ryuki's terrible ending into a good ending?!
Finally free of the clutches of Metal April, the newly re-branded SuperIchi, along with the other Core Casters, discuss the first episode of Zi-O's Hibiki arc, featuring an overjubilant Woz, Kamen Rider Kyoki's misbranding, Todoroki being still awesome, and Soup commits a grave sin. Next, we discuss Ryusoulger featuring a hastily broomswept Minusaur attack because who cares? NEW GENERAL! Finally, our topic this week is the three-part Kamen Rider Shinobi special, aka Kamen Rider Naruto. Could this be the beginning of somethng amazing that we won't ever see come to fruition? And what? Ichi's in it?!
Ichida za Zeal is no more! He is reborn as SuperIchi! Fresh off this rebranding, we bring you this week's news, such as Yet More Woz, a few Power Rangers collaborations, returns, and updates, some drama in the Power Rangers community, a big dark king, and get ready to make a pipopapopurchase?
It's the last week of Metal April and WOW did Gar serve us up a doozy. But first! Zi-O wraps up its zombie flick arc with Double Trinities across the sky, and Bamba goes stab-happy trying to make sure his brother doesn't die as we get the debut of Five Knights, both in zord and team. Finally, our topic is Kyodai Ken Bycrosser, by far one of the most bizarre toku shows we've come across. Why is it so weird? You'll just have to find out!
