It's here! Castranger #200! This was recorded over two evenings. Part 1 features Ichi, Lane and Emily discussing this week's episodes, including the debut of Kamen Rider MadRogue who manages to save the Earth, and it becomes clear just how dense and socially awkward Keiichiro is. Then we move on to what you've been waiting for: we gather as many Casters as we can fit into a room, including a new face, Connie, aka Moon Caster, and give you a Castranger version of the movie you all know and hate-love, jam packed with brutal teardowns of all of its plotholes. We recommend you watch the YouTube version for that!

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!
As we inch ever closer to the big two-hundo, we discuss Evol's new and badass Dragon Form Phase 2 stylin all over Team Build and completing the plotbox, then the Patos use excessive force to badass their way through their focus episode as Keiichiro literally almost dies to win our hearts this week. Finally, our topic for this week is the first episode of the ROGUE specials, as we learn that the reason Gentoku got all grumpy was because he didn't get nearly enough karaoke hours in the last few years.
The Core Four are here for more! This week we discuss Banjo embracing his destiny, Umika and Tsukasa's spooky day off, and how Utsumi subjects Build to some Hellish experiments in the 2nd and 3rd episodes of the Best Matches specials.
Three Little Casters do something vageuly resembling assemblage as they discuss this week's episodes. Ichi gushes over the debut of Kamen Rider Evol while Gentoku ripens his redemption arc, we discuss The Adventures of Tooma And That Kid Who Tried To Be The Gold Time Force Ranger, and now that we're done with Metal April, it's time to catch up on Build spinoffs, so we discuss the shockingly good KumaTelevi VS Grease special.
The three Castilieros continue their quest to review all the things, like no one ever was, while Lane is off avenging things. On this week's Build, we discuss Banjo discovering his true identity by way of punching Blood Stark in the face. A raised eyebrow at this week's Patranger would be an understatement, as things like "genderswap," "fetish," and "bad touch" would not be inaccurate descriptors of this week's escapade. Finally, to round out Metal April, we discuss the movie that dared stick its robotdik into Kamen Rider Gaim. Can switching it off and back on again really save the intrepid attempts of this young Toku-nocchio from mediocrity?
Behold! The first RSC episode in our newly relocated studio, and GASP Raven and Xenshin have showed up to participate in the episode as our housewarming gift! This week, we discuss the fiery debut of Cross-Z Magma and the revelation of his true origin, and the bone-chilling proper debut of Freezo-Amigo... er, Frostbite Reaper... no, wait, Zamigo Delma, that's his name. And finally, for Week 3 of Metal April, we discuss Metalder, half of the source footage for VR Troopers. Could it possibly be anywhere near as good?
The Core Four REUNITE ONCE AGAIN FOR THE LAST TIME ONCE AGAIN IN THEIR ORIGINAL STUDIO. We discuss Sento's amazing ability to use the power of technicality to avoid an invasion, Banjo's amazing ability to solve his problems with punching, Kairi's attempts to solve all his problems with money, and for week 2 of Metal April, Kikaider 01's attempts to solve all his problems with a small and ocasionally shirtless boy-child which isn't creepy at all nope siree.
Emily and Blaze take turns joining us via Discord for the first week of METAL APRIL, our Kikaider-themed month! But first, we discuss the game-changing third arc of Build's first episode, as Stark builds Tartarus in Tokyo. We discuss how the Lupinranger VS Patranger series just barely manages to maintain its early-game status quo with the attempted sussing out of the thieves' identities. Finally, for Metal April, we discuss a few choices episode of the original Android Kikaider from the 70s. Does this Showa-era toku have the same rustic charm as other Showa series. or does it just fall on its face and explode into a mess of like ten different parts?
This week's assemblage discusses the debut of the equal parts adorable and OP AF Build TankTank Form, and Ichi has, let's say a "problem" with the counter-RabbitRabbit tactics. We also discuss how LupinYellow defeats vore, and just in time for the debut of Ready Player One, the Paradox HBV where Emu and Not!Emu solve three puzzles!
