The Core Four are here once more! Ichi shrieks his sick throat out trying to make sense of what Woz is up to, the actors realize what we did ages ago about Ghost, the red Rangers actually have a touching moment while Destra goes down like a champ, and finally we get to talk about the Go-Ongers 10 Years GP movie!
Ichi's less sick than last week so we're back again to discuss a bewilderingly confusing and also awesome at the same time episode of Zi-O, Destra tries to get his groove back, and then in the Lupin/Pato side specials, we meet the arguably better PatrenNigo, and Kairi and Keiichiro lern the ups and downs of sticking together, BY FORCE.
After taking a mental health break last week, we're back in full force! Well, except Ichi's sick, but that won't stop him from leading the charge right into a Double Episode Special! Blaze joins us for the wrapup of the Dan Kuroto OOO arc. Gar's around, technically, but hasn't watched anything so he kinda fucks off at the start. We discuss dethroning Dan, the amazing writer the show's had recently, and How Sougo Got His Groove Back Through Time. Over on the sentai side, a major plot detail was revealed about Zamigo, but it gets underplayed while shrimp missiles fly, and then we deal with Boaty McBoatFace the Kaijin who somehow caused an actually funny episode.
Ichi, Lane, and Emily are all here this week. Since Rider and Sentai didn't air last weekend, we gotta fill the time somehow, so for some god-awful reason we decide to watch the first two episodes of Go-Onger. Why did Ichi ragequit the series? Aside from that, we go back to our precious Build by finishing up the ROGUE miniseries, and wow is it a bloody good time!
EDIT: Whoops put Gar in the rollcall instead of Blaze
Blaze joins us as we break free of Borgtober and get back to topics at hand. We discuss how Sougo seems to be fetishizing our memelord Dan Kuroto; how will poor Woz react? Next, some shrimp gets frozen to death and a snake boy gets bested by a plane from space that vomits a tank. Confusing without context, right? Finally, we get rid of all those nasty boys and have somegirl time in the LupinPato Girlfriends Army special. Could this be of relevance later in the show?
Emily is busy celebrating her birthday while the remaining three finish off Borgtober. First, we see the startings of Sougo's interesting personality surfacing while Geiz obtains his coolest form yet. Next, the Lupins and Patos camp out and miscommunicate their feeligns like every shoujo anime ever to avoid going home, and finally, we wrap up our viewign of Beetleborgs with a blatant and stupidly covered up actor change before Nukus shows up and teamkills the villains.
Week three of Borgtober is here! We discuss how Geiz tries to kill Skeith while Zi-O stupidly tries to assume the best like a good wittle pwotagonist, and then the show dumps all its deleted scenes on us. This week's Patranger gives us more amazing Keiichiro anger and development, and then we wrap up the amazing arc of the Shadow and White Beetleborgs.
Blaze joins the core Four this week as we start getting to the goodstuff in this second week of Borgtober, our month of Big Bad Beetleborgs. But first, the line between 4 and 5 blends as we discuss this zombie-filled second half of Zi-O's Fourze/Faiz arc as well as why the two shows might be more related than we thought, and then Kogure illustrates how if we can't handle him at his worst, we don't deserve him at his best. Finally, for this week's Borgtober, we discuss the creation of the Shadowborg and the WHITE... Blaster Beetleborg!
The Core Four is here once again to start off another theme month: BORGTOBER, where we'll be talking about key episodes of that camp-ass 90s-ass toku show, Big Bad Beetleborgs, aka the Adventures of Flabber featuring some kids. But first, we discuss Zi-O reliving his high school days, complete with girls getting flung off the roof, monsters, and rocketing into space. You know, normal stuff. Then, we discuss this week's Lupinranger, aka Kairi pops his own brother with a gun in order to get a better gun. Wow, what a week!
Emily and Gar trickle in as we discuss this week's episodes. Zi-O proves that its timeline-swapping nonsense can get less stupid but still be stupid as Captain Hammerhands Deadpools his way to victory. We discover how the Toei scripting department handles the timeline changes, and it's kind of shitty. This week's sentai episode is about how the Lupins get turned into kids and Kairi seduces Tsukasa is a whole new way. Finally, we finish off Gashatember in style with the Genmu VS Lazer movie, where Ichi's favorite Rider suit ever lives. Is this a proper close to the Ex-Aid saga? Could Dan really have some humanity to him after all?
