With Red, Crimson, and Cyan Casters here to fill in for Lane and Emily, but no Discord audience due to internet issues, we trudge onwards to discuss this week's episodes. The fearsome foursome of Metsuboujinrai.net, led by Ark-Zero, make their move, as we are introduced to the amazing Kamen Rider Naki, who wastes no time slashing their way into our hearts. Next, Takamichi is the hot new Kiramager, and he's got backstory to spare and many a drill to shove in your face. Finally, our feature topic is Kamen Rider Kuuga. It may be the series that revitalized the franchise, but does it hold up well 20 years later?
Lane's away for his birthday, Emily can't join because our internet is out, which also means no audience, but the show must go on! Ichi managed to get the news links while it was temporarily working and now must fight his instincts to close each tab after moving to the next news story! Can he do it? Meanwhile, we've got news about underwear, towels, track suits, helmets, and a toy that looks like it shoots Sith Lightning to discuss. Also, what's all this hearsay about Hasbro cutting ties with Toei??
Oh mannn you guys, we've hit another hundo-milestone! And what a week to do so, as we discuss the debuts of both Kamen Rider Ark-Zero and KiramaSilver. In lieu of a normal feature topic, we answer a fresh round of questions submitted by our discord fans! And stay tuned, because our script read of Shattered Grid is still coming!
Paul joins us, for part of the episode anyways, as we begin the uphill march of catching up on Rider and Sentai now that Super Hero Time has returned to the airwaves. Ichi summarizes the interesting bits of the filler specials, then we get introduced to As, the Dark Izu, if you will, who gives us yet another recap special about Metsuboujinrai.net, then in Kiramager Tametomo pulls some Epic Gamer Moves to fix a time loop. Our feature topic this week is Lvieman, a sentai with a lot of franchise firsts, but what we're focusing on is the debut of the first midseason added Rangers. Oh, and a furry shoots a lightning rainbow after piloting a Guyver. ...wait, what?
Paul's here and Lane is threatening us with a Fortnite shotgun as we go over this week's news. Kamen Rider learns what branding is, a new evil Ryusoulger, Gatack got married, a Build toy nobody asked for, and yet more apparel and accessories!
It's almost Ichi's birthday, and how better to celebrate than gathering a bunch of Castrangers and talking about one of his most formative and influential shows from his childhood, which just so happens to be the only original show Saban ever produced? That's right, it's Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog, so you better put The Sound Around You and listen to whether or not the camp and lore of this 90's tokusatsu show steeped in Irish mythology holds up today.
Don't let your memes be dreams! The Castrangers finally cave to public demand and talk about... *sigh* BAKUGAN. And MAN does Ichi have a lot to complain about, as expected. But enough about that, we're going back to one of our old favorites, After V, the show about sentai that drink booze after saving the world! In this set of episodes, Treasure Yellow lazes his way into our hearts. And speaking of an old friend, who's that coming into the studio today...?
