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.
Recording a day early because Blue and Pink are going to MAGFest, North Caster fills in for Green, and Black Caster is trapped in cyberspace! We talk about Roidmude 069 stalking an actress, confirmed for Proto-Drive, ToQ-1gou Black happens and explains some plot points, then we talk about NOT THE GAIM MOVIE but our favorite hissatsu attacks! Sorry! Gaim movie next week!
Our first Skype guest, the legendary Crunchman, finally joins us for this week's Castranger! In Drive, Shijima Gou aka Kamen Rider Mach becomes Peter Parker, and meanwhile, the ToQger megazord invades the Kureshima family mansion. Then we talk about the ToQger Galaxy Line SOS movie, aka the Train Bitch From Outer Space.
The full five-man crew shows up to get stronger! ...wait, no, I meant to WATCH Kamen Rider Stronger. The first three episodes, though some of us have already seen more of it. We go off on a shit-ton of Showa-buttering tangents, but we eventually give our thoughts on the show and if we would keep watching. Then we go into space but not really most of the time with the final movie in the Uchuu Keiji reboot trilogy, Space Sheriff Shaider NEXT GENERATION, aka Kamen Rider Birth / Date's Abs The Movie, featuring all your favorites: Tammy, Birdgirl, and Commissioner Gordon. Yup.
This week, on the first Castranger of 2015 and quite possibly one of our most polarizing episodes ever, North Caster returns! Kamen Rider Mach debuts; we discuss his design and Shijima Gou's... "interesting" character and methodology. Not to ignore the awesomery that is the Gunman Roidmude. Plus we learn some things about Slowdown / Density Shift. ToQger ends 2014 with a clip show and a concert. THEN. My god, then... Remember how we said apparently the second Guyver movie was going to be better? Did it end up being better? Kind of, but not really. Strap in as we follow David Hayter to Utah in Guyver: Dark Hero.
If you ever wanted to hear what we talk about between when I click record, and when we actually start the show, here you go!
