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!
Six Casters resume being assembled to discuss how a bunch of Megamen jump kicked a zombie god into submission, how Naga Got His Groove Back, and the batshit insanity required to qualify the Zyuohgers as a recognized Super Sentai, including snapping an old man's neck, apparently.
Four of the Cores are here for another week of laughs and critique of your favorite adults in suits. First, to change it up, we talk about Kyuranger, or How We Learned To Love Being The Limbs. In a very Taiga-heavy week, we discuss the amazing yet futile struggle of Taiga assuming the form of Cronus to fight a better Cronus, then we go back to Taiga's past and discuss how he guilted himself into his terrible situation.
Four Core Casters remain assembled to discuss the debut of Gamedeus. Yes, it's Gamedeus, not Gemdeus. Muteki can't beat it, but apparently beating the shit out of a memelord can create a vaccine! Meanwhile in Kyuranger, Gabbler deigns to make us take it seriously, and Tsurugi deigns to make us not hate him. Does it work? Finally, we discuss the Kamen Rider Specter movie. But what's this? Something Kamen Rider Ghost-related that we enjoyed? Or did we?
Back from ConBravo and packing the whole core crew with a twinge of Orange, the Castrangers unite to catch up with a Double Episode Special! What's this? Pink Caster has discarded the name Litrid?! Speaking of changes, Masamune presses the Rest button, so it's down to the anal-retentive mr. belt-mechanics Blue Caster to analyze everything that changed, didn't change, should have changed, and should NOT have changed. Meanwhile in Kyuranger, we discuss the fallout of the debut of Houou Soldier, sentai's newest hilarious asshole.
