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.
Ichi trudges on with his Power Rangers New Friends featuring Overkill Briefly, as Sento finds a Clue™, Misora makes up for Miitan, Kazooie cosplays Fourze, Lucky turns out to be the Prince of Narnia, Ultros nabs a Magitek suit, and Ichi subjects his New Friends™ to three more agonizing episodes of the Korean tokusatsu animation, MiniForce.
Four Core Casters remain somewhat assembled to talk about How Gentoku Met Katsuragi's Mother, the debut of FireHedgehog Form, how Sento logic leaps over the moon to solve a riddle, how Hame channels Deneb to save MagiYellow In Space, and for our Halloween feature topic, the scariest thing ever: not one, but TWO Power Rangers clip shows! :O
Four out of Five Casters unite to discuss the debut of RocketPanda, the begin of the chase for Katsuragi Takumi, and the first henshin of Night Rogue. Over on Kyuranger, we talk about the, uh, debut of Yagyuu Juubei, the totally not Friend Champ superhero of justice. Finally, our very October-themed review of 1965's Gamera: The Giant Monster, aka How To Jettison Your Pettison.
North is here in place of Red this week. To celebrate Friday the 13th, our feature topic is our review of the cult hit movie Mystery Men, which counts because it's about live action special effect superheroes. And also Ben Stiller. But first! We discuss Build's first dungeon raid, and Kyuranger gets a new zord that is also a Pokemon.
The full Core Five are in the studio, joined by Spell Caster, aka Blaze, one of our active Discord fans. Lane swoops in to counterpoint Ichi's Build rantings from last week, we meet the bloody good fun game master Blood Stark, and laugh at Tatsuya getting the shit beat out of him by everybody. Secondly, we react to the Kyurangers fighting a twisted hodgepodge of Robotnik and Ivan Ooze. Finally, 100 episodes after discussing Hentai Kamen, we deal with the sequel. Is this movie's dick as hard as the first one?
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.
The Core Five assemble. While Ichi fumes at Miitan's existence and crack after crack forming in Build's plot wall, Lane gets into a tizzy about the potential future of Shou Lonpo. Finally, we fulfill a promise we made a year ago.
Saga and Noble join us this week as we discuss the "amazingly" paced second episode of Build, the debut of DaddyRanger FromThePast, and finally, an actual feature topic: The Zyuohger Returns movie. Does Yamato make a convincing gangster? Does Misao's love story hit the mark? Will Robert De Niro collect all the Chaos Emeralds??
Our odd assemblage resumes for the debut of Kamen Rider Build! But first we get Kyuranger out of the way. Yadda yadda yadda Hebitsukai Metal is evil and savage and it's genuinely terrifying. Build! Sento! Kazooie! Shake the Furu Bottles endlessly! Coffee dad! Day of the Tentacle-style hidden base! Skywall! Batman! We talk about the episode and our reactions and predictions! All with the careful mathematical verification and guidance of our new friend, Quantum Caster, an actual physicist! Dave, Paul, and Emily are back also!
