Once again, Happy 2017! Dream Caster joins the Core Four, and boy do we have a LOT of catching up to do! Toei's been busy killing off characters to celebrate Christmas while we were gone, and holy fuck do we have opinions on THAT. Episodes 11 and 12 of Ex-Aid, featuring The Death and Rebirth of Genmu, and the heart-shattering death of Lazer. Meanwhile in Zyuohger, Kubar tries REAL FUCKING HARD to eradicate humanity, then Mario FINALLY puts it all together. Despite this being a Double Episode Special, we did manage to squeeze in a quick feature topic - What I Did On My Winter Vacation. :D
Litrid, Ichida za Zeal, and AutoGar unite to talk about the two final episodes of season 1 of Kamen Rider Amazons. What happened to Mamoru? Did Project Tlaloc kill all the Amazons? We discuss what happened, and then give our thoughts on the show as a whole!
The trifecta of the House of Castranger convene after Yellow Caster was absent last week to review both episodes 7 and 8 of Amazons, and it's a good thing they did because the story arc for these two episodes fit together great.
Blue Caster returns, and he's brought North and Dream with him from the void! After a brief tangent about the Digimon Adventure Tri dub, today we talk about the first part of what could be considered Ghost's endgame. IS the defeat of Adel satisfying? After that we sort-of Double Episode special the two Gokaiger episodes of Zyuohger celebrating Super Sentai's 2000th episode. Join us as we relive the joy of the Pirate Sentai. Because we have three episodes, no feature topic this week.
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?
Casters Present: Red Blue Pink Yellow
Kamen Rider Ghost 41, 42,
Dobutsu Sentai Zyuohger 22, 23,
Come Back! Shuriken Sentai Ninninger: Ninnin Girls vs. Boys FINAL WARS
Yellow is busy, so the remaining four Casters play catchup once again after coming back from Anime North. We start off by sharing our con stories, then dig into two weeks of toku. In Ghostland, we talk about how Tutenkhamun got his groove back, then the Death and Return of Ghost For The Third Fucking Time. Over in Zyuland, we discuss the amazingly racist British Hunter MOTW, then the hunt for mascots that clearly isn't hinting to the creation of the sixth Zyuohger.
Star Caster Drago joins us for this week of catchup after our charity livestream last week. We discuss the latest chapter in Alan's character development which apparently did indeed require killing an old lady, then some adults get turned into kids for reasons we attempt to discern. Meanwhile in Huland, the Zyuohgers run the gaultet of traps that is Cock Mountain... er, Axe Rock. Then we try to figure out a love triangle that involves Leo, Yamato, and something about a parakeet? Finally, for our feature topic, we speculate for a short while about what the next Rider series might be.
NOTE: We will not be recording an episode next week because we will be at Anime North! Anyone coming say hi to us selling at the Nominoichi and running gameshows on Sunday!
Six! Six episodes discussed! Hahaha *lightning* Cyan and Navy Casters join us again in place of North as we do some catchup in the wake of Castranger 100. The saga of Alan becoming a good guy comes to a head while Makoto obtains and debuts Deep Specter, and we share our thoughts. Over in Huland, we discuss the amusing G.I.F.T. given by the Deathgaliens to our heroes, and the advent of Biiiiiiiirdman! Finally, we begin our special episode catchup by reviewing the end of Drive Type Tokujo, which comes to a surprisingly satisfying conclusion.
Castranger 2016! We're back from holiday break (again) for a Double Episode Special! The five current core Casters reassemble after partying our brains out. After sharing our holiday stories, we get into some plot-pivotal discussion about Ghost and Ninninger which both hit some important episodes over the last few weeks. What did we think of Toucon Boost Damashii? Will Gengetsu pose a threat? How did the 99-day counter reset get handled? Did we enjoy the Shurikenger cameo? Come find out on this week's episode!
Yeah baby, Silver Medal is back and with a new voice on the team - Yellow Caster, AutoGar. After wrestling some hardware problems we begin Season 2 of Silver Medal with a Double Episode Special, featuring fake royalty, flying lighting pterodactyls, and an actual death maze. After that, we talk about the most timing-appropriate feature topic ever - What I Did On My Summer Vacation (from Silver Medal).
