Cel disassembles a street-stolen bookshelf in the background while the Casters regale you with the tales of this week's toku episodes. Sougo encounters the clearly Predator-inspired Another Rider Ex-Aid who "somehow" survives two years of existence and then challenges them to Mighty Action Z. In this Hokan Keikaku, the actors conspire against the staff, and it seems a little excessive, even to us! Finally, continuing the stupidly well-timed Gashatember, we discuss the second movie in the Another Ending Trilogy, aka "where the trilogy finally starts to get good," even though the movie is literally about a tamagotchi game.
We kidnap- er, INVITE Cel to join us for the first time in some time, as we go over a compativiely light news week. A shirtless villain, a returning cast member with suspenders, the NOT Hell Bro's movie, a Premium Bandai fake cell phone, and a Mad Mad figure are just some of our headlines this week.
Toei promptly tells Castranger to go fuck themselves by way of the Hokan Keikaku episodes thus far. In response, in a move unheard of since logic'ing out Cronus's Reset paradox, Ichi manages to logic out MOST, not all, of the time/space paradox nonsense presented by episodes 1 and 2 of Zi-O. Come witness, jaw agape, as we go all Pepe Silvia on this show's ass. Next, Sakuya guns for our jobs and Noel smuglords his way through the weirdest collection piece thus far. Finally, we begin GASHATEMBER, our Ex-Aid-themed 3/4 of a month, by discussing the first of the trilogy movies. The Chou Den-O Episode Red, if you will.
It's here! It's time! It's Rider Time! Zi-O is here, and WOW is it RIFE with problems immediately! But first, Keiichiro cements his position as best character in the VS Sentai by taking a "vacation" and becoming best friends with Kairi. THEN we get into this time-tripping ride of a show, its several elephant-sized plotholes, and for a feature topic we discuss our predictions and theories. How bad of a start is Zi-O off to??
Red Caster makes it here from his side quest just in time to join us for the finale of Build. But first, we throw in a quick mention of the Power Rangers anniversary episode, and Lupinranger VS Patranger occupies our time with a haphazardly thrown together clip show. Finally, we discuss the ending to what could be the greatest Kamen Rider series. Our opinions differ. Our predictions come true. We share who we loved, what we loved, and why as our "feature topic" becomes a retrospective discussion on the series as a whole and analysis of each of the major characters.
Qunatum Caster sits idly by as Ichi and Lane, Castranger's Best Match, go through the cavalcade of new this week! More scans from both shows, more confirmed returning actors, more toy scans, hacked Ziku Driver revelations, and more from Build beyond the ending of the series!
With ChouRaven here in place of Emily and Gar, we discuss the penultimate episode of Build, as the ever-dwindling cast of heroes dwindles yet further still, and we honor the memory of Himuro Gentoku by taking a look back at the hardest point in his life: part 2 of the ROGUE specials, featuring a lot of implied dick references? Also it's Umika's birthday and her dad's here and HOLY HELL THE MAGIC DIAL FIGHTER YOU GUYS, THE MAGIC DIAL FIGHTER.
ChouRaven finds his way onto the podcast once again in place of Gar and Emily, as we go over the cavalcade of happenings from Power Morphicon, yet more another batch of info about the upcoming Kamen Rider Zi-O, and a few interesting figure release announcements.
Stage Caster Thespian joins us to talk about this weirdly musical episode of LuPat. This week's Build leaves a robot-shaped hole in our hearts in more ways than one. Our feature topic is a couple more episodes of Kyoryuger Brave. Why? Because fuck it.
A tragic death, Power Rangers Day, an obscure Star Wars ripoff, and a sex robot you can buy are jsut a few of the news stories on highlight this week, as we are joined by Stage Caster Thespian, one of the CastFans.
