North Caster slides into Red and Yellow Caster's seats joining Blue, Pink, and Dream, as we discuss the elaborated betrayal of Hiiro, Cronus literally making it rain, the Hikari Kyutama making Balance go Jojo and Garu go Lupin, and finally, we discuss the Heisei Generations movie, aka How We Remembered How Much We Hate Takeru.
Gold Caster joins the Four Warriors of Light this week. With no Ninninger episode, we had time to talk about the Ninninger summer movie, and we finally got around to watching Gaim Gaiden 2: Duke & Knuckle. Meanwhile on Ghost, the hero Sakamoto Ryoma comes to life, making this effectively Ryoma Week on Castranger.

Green, Black, and North Casters return for this six-ranger team-up! We talk about Drive uncovering the truth about his father's death, Daddy Ninger finally gets his ShinkenBrown episode, and we finally get our claws into the Full Throttle Movie Wars! It was pretty great! Come hear our thoughts and share yours in the comments!

Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Drive & Gaim: Movie War Full Throttle
Ichida has returned, and he's disgruntled with everyone's terrible job last week! This week on Drive, Gou changes alliance. On Ninninger, the Igasaki's assassin cooks them breakfast, then some of the team goes emo! Finally, we talk about the first round of Gaim Gaiden movies: Zangetsu, the serious drama and character portrait, and Baron, the reason for Kaito's actor to show any sort of emotion!
This week on Castranger we FINALLY talk about the Gaim Summer Soccer movie, arguably what we've been hyping up to our entire career up to this point. Was it everything we waited for? Was it worth the wait? How does it answer our questions? How does it question our answers? Find out as the full six-man crew comes On Stage! Oh, also Machine Chaser gets brainwashed, Nanao Lira fights her own Shadow Persona, and the ToQgers board the Feels Train as the plot barrels down towards the final battle.
Kamen Rider Drive 15, Ressha Sentai ToQger 45,
Kamen Rider Gaim The Movie: Great Soccer Battle! Golden Fruits Cup!
We take the express line through this week's ToQger episode filled with wigs, baby birds, and Siamese super forms, then move onto the important parts. We each give a brief diatribe on what we liked about Kamen Rider Gaim as a whole, then discuss and comment on the Gaim finale / epilogue / movie tie-in final episode.
Ichi and Paul spend way too much time getting way too deep into Mitsuzane's character arc, Ichi asks a lot of questions and only gets one really well-answered, we talk a lot about how we got to this conclusion of the story of Gaim, we also discover the true origin behind Baron's designs, and then ToQger happens and Schwarz and Light do lunch or something. No special topic this week because Gaim discussion overgrows.
Ichida cries over belt mechanics theory, Paul overanalyzes the Kouta vs Kaito problem we seem to be dealing with, and then ToQger's stupidity achieves its own Super Form. We talk more about the upcoming Kamen Rider Drive.
After attending Fan Expo the previous week, Castranger returns, and BOY HAS SOME SHIT HAPPENED. We discuss the final brilliance of Sengoku Ryoma, the unholy awesomeness of Ryugen-Yomi Yomotsu Heguri Arms, and we finally have an answer to what "Not-Mai" / The Priestess of Fate really is. Meanwhile on the other side of the tracks, IMAGINAAAATION goes wild, then we get a stupidly awesome Akira-focused episode featuring a bathhouse.
