This week's episode of Zenkaiger goes a ways towards potentially redeeming the show, as Zox warms up to the others. This week's Saber sees the debut of Xross Saber, the space-themed final form (of sorts). Our feature topic is the Sword of Logos Saga, the miniseries designed to fill in all the gaps in the lore and the plot from 17 years ago all the way up to the ongoing events of the show. Does it make the show worthwhile? Listen and find out!
Gar's back from The War, and he has some WORDS for Zenkaiger; how perfect that this episode is full of recycled nonsense. But first, seems like we're finally dealing with Kento's broody bullshit in Saber, and finally, we discuss a couple eps of Kamen Rider Super-1, the first gimmicky Rider of the Showa era.
This week on Castranger our good friend Vegas joins us, as we discuss Master Logos finally getting the ritual to revive the Omniscient Tome underway, how Zenkaiger demonizes a game of tag, and how a Zi-O special gets creepy and bloody and interesting and so many other things, all at once.
Ichi's got an FF14 thing to watch, so we recorded earlier than normal and decided to skip Extra this week. Instead, we're talking about Kamen Rider Falchion, both his debut ""movie"" and the episode where he returns to relevance. Is his debut film up to snuff? Meanwhile, Zenkaiger deals with both yet another stupid monster, and GokaiGold's indifference towards innocents.
This week, we discuss Touma's attempt to bring Kento back, which comes with some interesting backstory confirmations, how Desast and Ren found a way, how Zox steals literally everything including his own design, possibly the lamest Monster of the Week ever, and how a corny Saw imitation went from camp to OH GOD AND ALSO WHAT AND WHY over the course of its three episodes.
This week on Castranger we finally reach the debut of Blades Hyojuu Senki, and Ichi's current opinion of it may surprise our ongoing listeners. Stacey's fresh debut on Zenkaiger is cut violently short by the grossly abrupt introduction of the sixth... "Zenkaiger," and for our feature topic we discuss the extra-long first episode of the Netflix reboot of Voltron and why you should be watching it.
This week on Castranger, we discuss Rintaro and Touma's amazing bro-ment, the debut of the surprisingly cool Stacaesar, and just how well the first Tiger & Bunny movie recaps the beginning of this anime about sponsored superheroes.
This week on Saber, Ichi gushes about how good a Rintaro episode this is AND about the debut of Kamen Rider Durandal, The Cooler Swordsman of Water, er... Time. MEanwhile on Zenkaiger, the show presses their luck by pressing their characters into sushi, and we're torn on whether it's ridiculous or hilarious. Finally, continuing Metal April, we take a look at the animated adaptation of Android Kikaider. Can its near-chibi art style hold a candle to the original material?
