Emily and Gar trickle in as we discuss this week's episodes. Zi-O proves that its timeline-swapping nonsense can get less stupid but still be stupid as Captain Hammerhands Deadpools his way to victory. We discover how the Toei scripting department handles the timeline changes, and it's kind of shitty. This week's sentai episode is about how the Lupins get turned into kids and Kairi seduces Tsukasa is a whole new way. Finally, we finish off Gashatember in style with the Genmu VS Lazer movie, where Ichi's favorite Rider suit ever lives. Is this a proper close to the Ex-Aid saga? Could Dan really have some humanity to him after all?
Cel disassembles a street-stolen bookshelf in the background while the Casters regale you with the tales of this week's toku episodes. Sougo encounters the clearly Predator-inspired Another Rider Ex-Aid who "somehow" survives two years of existence and then challenges them to Mighty Action Z. In this Hokan Keikaku, the actors conspire against the staff, and it seems a little excessive, even to us! Finally, continuing the stupidly well-timed Gashatember, we discuss the second movie in the Another Ending Trilogy, aka "where the trilogy finally starts to get good," even though the movie is literally about a tamagotchi game.
Toei promptly tells Castranger to go fuck themselves by way of the Hokan Keikaku episodes thus far. In response, in a move unheard of since logic'ing out Cronus's Reset paradox, Ichi manages to logic out MOST, not all, of the time/space paradox nonsense presented by episodes 1 and 2 of Zi-O. Come witness, jaw agape, as we go all Pepe Silvia on this show's ass. Next, Sakuya guns for our jobs and Noel smuglords his way through the weirdest collection piece thus far. Finally, we begin GASHATEMBER, our Ex-Aid-themed 3/4 of a month, by discussing the first of the trilogy movies. The Chou Den-O Episode Red, if you will.
The Core Four are reunited finally, to discuss Heisei Generations FINAL, a tearjerking zombie horror flick that actually fits (mostly) snugly into the canon of both Ex-Aid and Build and manages to explain some things, but not everything. But first, we discuss the proper debut of Genius Form and How Grease Got His Jelly Back, as well as Sakuya getting away with not-entirely-unintetionally pouring soup on Nira from Drive.
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!
After celebrating our fourth anniversary it's time to get back to work. Blaze and Shu join us for this week's chaos, including Build's SECOND tournament arc and How Grease Got His Groove Back, Keiichiro maxes out his angery as Kairi proceeds to style all over him and the Bumdolt, and for our feature topic we wrap up the Snipe specials. Was Bang Bang Tank worth the wait?
With Precurary completed, the Casters now start to play feature topic catchup. First off, we discuss Kamen Rider Rogue's thorough thrashing of the heroes, the Patrangers' falling victim to The Ooze and PatKaizer's debut, and finally, is Ex-Aid's True Ending worth the price of the DLC?
The core Casters are (mostly) back! We discuss Blood Stark's descent into Phantom Thiefhood and the amazing Build KeyDragon Form, Lucky's ascent into full-on Gary Stu-ness, and the completion of the circuit of Taiga's character arc with episode 3 of the Snipe prequel specials.
In Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, Poppy Pipopapo's song PEOPLE GAME was supposed to be the theme song for Kamen Rider Chronicle. What if the game had an opening cutscene? Blue Caster threw this together to answer that question.
With Red, Yellow, and Pink Casters gone, Quantum and Savage Casters join Blue and Dream. Ichi starts us off with a lengthy discussion about Build, including his theories, questions, inconsistencies, plotholes, etc. Then we talk about the actual episode 4, aka The Adventures of Brad Stark. Then we discuss the latest Kyuranger, aka The GReat Super Sentai Invasive Surgery, and finally, our feature topic is Chou Super Hero Taisen, or, How A Boy Named After A Pun Almost Destroyed Korea With The Power Of Namco.
