Radio Sentai Castranger [117] Adel Syndrome

September 3, 2016

Silver Caster, newly minted as Mercury Caster, joins us as we breathe a sigh of willful endurance. Kamen Rider Ghost drags us on towards its end and trips over a stupidly huge plot bomb in the EPISODE PREVIEW, while Zyuohger serves us up a terrible terrible clip show. Finally, our topic this week is Kamen Rider The First, the 2005 reboot movie of the original Kamen Rider, to get us warmed up for the recently-released new Kamen Rider Ichigo movie.

Radio Sentai Castranger [115] Questions and Triangles

August 21, 2016

A room full of Casters, including Dream Caster, and over Skype, Gold, Orange, and Navy Casters, unite to talk about this week's toku. In Ghost, we talk about how the endgame plot gives Takeru new internet powers and Onari gets to fight as a Rider. In Zyuland, the two awkward doodbros finally have it out and kick ass while doing so, and for our feature topic we talk about the two Ikkyu/Pythagoras special episodes of Ghost. Can we survive these lethally dangerous puns?

Radio Sentai Castranger [114] Death Week

August 13, 2016

North Caster returns, and Dream Caster graces us with her delightful awkwardness, as we talk about three things that involve death this week. In Ghost, the Demia Project is finally revealed, and Igor plays Pokemon Go. In Zyuland, we discuss the debut of Yamato's dead mom, and finally, we talk about Chou Movie Taisen Genesis, the Ghost/Drive crossover. Can this first Movie War with one continuous story prove that this formula works, or will it end up a terrible wrenching unexplained mess?

Radio Sentai Castranger [113] Goymon

August 10, 2016

The five core Casters (minus North) unite after attending ConBravo to play some catchup. We discuss a very infodumpy pair of Ghost episodes including the drop of a kind-of-fore-seen plot twist. Meanwhile in Zyuohger, we discuss the continuing adorableness of Misao as he acclimatizes to the team. Finally, because we have lots to catch up on after Ultraly, we squeeze in a review of the Ninninger Returns movie. Why do we hate ourselves? And why wasn't Saga here for this?

Radio Sentai Castranger [112] Ultralie

July 24, 2016

Yellow Caster isn't around to finish off ULTRALY, oddly, so the remaining core Casters discuss a mostly good week of episodes. Ghost resolves its stupid body swap wannabe police drama featuring Jiraya, Misao continues to be adorably awkward, and finishing off the month, we discuss the debut of Ultraman Orb. Without Gar. Nyeh nyeh nyeh.

Radio Sentai Castranger [111] Ultraman Bemular

July 17, 2016

Red Caster passes out after Extra!, and North ducks out just after sharing his thoughts, so the remaining three Casters share their review of this week's Ghost, in which we get a shitty body swap plot mixed in with a fairly good episode otherwise. With no Zyuohger episode, we fill the time with this week's Ultraly feature: Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy, which is a movie that may or may not feature the Borg destroying a glass planet?

Radio Sentai Castranger [110] Anus Trauma

July 14, 2016

Dream Caster joins us in place of North Caster. Why? Because Mondo Misao, Zyuoh The World, is pretty much a fictional manversion of her. Also, in Ghostland, Takeru tries to prove to everyone that the Heroic Eyecons aren't useless. Is he right? Finally, continuing Ultraly, we watched the Ultraman Mebius and the Ultra Brothers movie. How did most of us interpret this with little to no context (except for AutoGar?) Come find out!

Radio Sentai Castranger [109] Get Off Jirass

July 3, 2016

The five core Casters (plus Silver Caster) unite to begin another theme month here on Castranger. Welcome to Ultraly, a month of Ultraman feature topics, because we promised Gar we would. First we talk about this week's Ghost, which involved some idol drama bullshit and Alan completing another character arc, then we talk about the end of Zyuoh The World's stint as a villain, and finally, for Ultraly, we watched episodes 1, 10, and the finale of the original, Ultraman 1966/Hayata. How does a 50-year old tokusatsu series hold up? Come find out!

Radio Sentai Castranger [108] Getting Off Track

June 26, 2016

The full five core Casters reassemble. There's no Zyuohger this week, so in addition to us talking about how Alan Journeys To the West, Akari becomes a 1950s pop idol, and Onari becoming Nabeshin, we also watch the first episode of the Legend of Hero... *sigh* Alain, and give our review on this odd combination of backstory and comedy. Finally, we finally fucking talk about the ToQger vs Ninninger movie. Can these two mediocre series produce a halfway-decent crossover?
