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.
It's the first week of the Super Hero Time hiatus, but we're not short of content to discuss by any means. Instead of Zero-One and Kiramager, this week we talk about the first two eps of Tensou Sentai Goseiger. Some say it's bad, but might we be pleasantly surprised?
The Core Four are reunited finally, to discuss Heisei Generations FINAL, a tearjerking zombie horror flick that actually fits (mostly) snugly into the canon of both Ex-Aid and Build and manages to explain some things, but not everything. But first, we discuss the proper debut of Genius Form and How Grease Got His Jelly Back, as well as Sakuya getting away with not-entirely-unintetionally pouring soup on Nira from Drive.
North Caster slides into Red and Yellow Caster's seats joining Blue, Pink, and Dream, as we discuss the elaborated betrayal of Hiiro, Cronus literally making it rain, the Hikari Kyutama making Balance go Jojo and Garu go Lupin, and finally, we discuss the Heisei Generations movie, aka How We Remembered How Much We Hate Takeru.
Gold Caster joins the Four Warriors of Light this week. With no Ninninger episode, we had time to talk about the Ninninger summer movie, and we finally got around to watching Gaim Gaiden 2: Duke & Knuckle. Meanwhile on Ghost, the hero Sakamoto Ryoma comes to life, making this effectively Ryoma Week on Castranger.

Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Drive & Gaim: Movie War Full Throttle
Ichida has returned, and he's disgruntled with everyone's terrible job last week! This week on Drive, Gou changes alliance. On Ninninger, the Igasaki's assassin cooks them breakfast, then some of the team goes emo! Finally, we talk about the first round of Gaim Gaiden movies: Zangetsu, the serious drama and character portrait, and Baron, the reason for Kaito's actor to show any sort of emotion!
This week on Castranger we FINALLY talk about the Gaim Summer Soccer movie, arguably what we've been hyping up to our entire career up to this point. Was it everything we waited for? Was it worth the wait? How does it answer our questions? How does it question our answers? Find out as the full six-man crew comes On Stage! Oh, also Machine Chaser gets brainwashed, Nanao Lira fights her own Shadow Persona, and the ToQgers board the Feels Train as the plot barrels down towards the final battle.

Kamen Rider Gaim The Movie: Great Soccer Battle! Golden Fruits Cup!
We take the express line through this week's ToQger episode filled with wigs, baby birds, and Siamese super forms, then move onto the important parts. We each give a brief diatribe on what we liked about Kamen Rider Gaim as a whole, then discuss and comment on the Gaim finale / epilogue / movie tie-in final episode.
Ichi and Paul spend way too much time getting way too deep into Mitsuzane's character arc, Ichi asks a lot of questions and only gets one really well-answered, we talk a lot about how we got to this conclusion of the story of Gaim, we also discover the true origin behind Baron's designs, and then ToQger happens and Schwarz and Light do lunch or something. No special topic this week because Gaim discussion overgrows.
