This week on Castranger, we discuss the debut of Espada's Wonder Combo and how the three Swordriver users fight as one to give us the proper-ass Calibur's secret identity reveal, how Kiramager literally turned a cheap toy commercial into a hilarious and wholesome filler episode, and how Hurricaneger blew... wind, that is. How does it compare to Ninja Storm?
The Book Boys and Shinyrangers are back this week after a hiatus. Tom is here to express his distaste for Saber while Ichi desperately tries to keep the faith that it will improve. In the meantime, the debut of Kamen Rider Slash dazzles all with his wacky suit and predicted personality change. Next, KiramaGold teases us with its fabulousness despite not existing... yet. Finally, we discuss Ohranger, the military trained sentai. Is it actually as bad as the fandom thinks, or is it stronger than before?
There was no Saber or Kiramager this week, so we fill the gaps with a few different things. First off, the Gridon VS Bravo specials were just put out, so we cover the entertaining yet inconsistency-riddled two-part special. Was it worth the effort? Secondly, we sit through two more episodes of the Zero-One anime which turn out to be more entertaining than we were expecting. Finally, the first two episodes of GoGoV, riddled with weird rescue robots and daddy issues.
Our friend and fan Blaze joins us this week for a spooky Halloween Castranger. First off, we discuss Saber living out his secret dream of being a sword wielded by a big robot. Can Saber possibly be headed back in the right direction? Secondly, the Kiramagers fight their Shadows while Jewel bullshits his way into saving Oladdin and letting him live his secret dream of being a bird zord. Finally, we discuss not Skullman, but the Ryusoulger VS Lupinranger VS Patranger movie. It's great to see our ol' cops n robbers again, but how painful is it for us to see the Ryusouglers again?
Five Casters come to you this week to discuss how Saber's pulling itself out of the smoking crater that was last week's episode by debuting Blades Vol 3, and what's this? A new ship? Next, Kiramager reminds us how hilariously amazing it is with another Shiguru focused episode. Finally, we discuss the first two episodes of Gingaman. How much did Lost Galaxy take from it, and is it as good?
This week on Castranger we discuss the polarizing sixth episode of Saber, featurign the debut of Kamen Rider Kenzan, the episode of Kiramager that was equal parts Gekiranger tribute and excuse to show Sena in her track outfit, and then how Samurai Flamenco told Mari to fuck off, then got weapons.
Holy crap, Lane's not here? Gar, Lane, and Emily help fill the void despite dropping out one by one as we talk about the "debut" of Kamen Rider Espada and Saber's Vol. 2 form, and the debut of the Go Kiramagers, their super forms. Finally, our feature topic is the Super Sentai In Space, Megaranger. Is it really so video game themed like people say but also disagree with?
Many Casters come at you this week, with Green here for Saber and Gold here for Dairanger talk. Concidentally, both Saber and Kiramager present their own beautiful women in this weeks' issues. In Saber, Touma tries a three-book form for the first time as Tinker Bell clotheslines a monster into oblivion. In Kiramager, we meet the new general Yodonna. Finally, our feature topic is Dairanger, yes THAT Dairanger, complete with chinese martial arts and nutshots.

Four chosen Castrangers assemble this week to discuss the debut of Kamen Rider Buster, or should we say, Busted, wow! Can a character this powerful really be a mainstay in the show? Our brains swirl with theories and possibilities as we discuss the compelling storyline unfolding. The Kiramagers form a band and jam out for justice. Do their tones strike our ears with favor? Finally, we begin discussing Project Thouser, aka how it really was Gai's fault all along.
This week, Ichi's love for the new Rider show, more specifically Kamen Rider Blades, is solidified beyond a doubt, to say the least. But do the other Casters share in his enthusiasm? Next, the Queen in Kiramager retuuuuurns from the deeeeeead, and man is she cringe. But the crystal apple doesn't fall far from the tree, as Mabusheena hits disturbing new lows, or should we say high notes? Finally, we come back to Samurai Flamenco, the anime targeting tokusatsu fans. Its down to earth beginnings are starting to ramp up, as we get introduced to the Hiroshi Fujioka analogy, as well as a super violent magical girl.
