Hey! Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, and welcome to our, uh, hundreds of new subscribers! You picked a great week to jump on because this week's episode is amazing. We discuss the debuts of Kamen Rider Jin and Valkyrie's Lightning Hornet form, but what's this; a secret new Progrise Key discovered by our Discord CastFans? Also, has Ryusoulger finally become passable? Can Sean Connery save the Beetleborgs? And what, oh what happened to the pizza Ichi ordered hours ago?!
It's BORGTOBER METALLIX! Which weirdly makes this a comic-themed week because in Zero-One, we meet a modern manga-ka, and witness the debut of Flaming Tiger. Then, Ryusoulger somehow pulls off the impossible: an interesting one-off episode?! Finally, we begin Borgtober Metallix with the opening three-parter of Beetleborgs Metallix. Does this cheesy show about three typical average kids hold up well today?
Between Kamen Rider Vulcan Punching Kong and Kishiryuoh Pachygaroo, we got two punchyboys this week. Also up for discussion this week is Zero-One Flying Falcon, the rapid yet consistent and thorough storytelling Zero-One has maintained, and how Ryusoulger somehow maintained an OK episode two weeks in a row, despite the miss of giving Melt a superform that doesn't suit him at all. Finally, our feature topic this week is the sentai clusterfuck threeway crossover movie. Can cramming all those rangers into one movie really churn out greatness?
This week we discuss the debut of Kamen Rider Valkyrie which almost gets overshadowed by Zero-One Biting Shark's debut, how we figured out that Vulcan is a fucking moron, how Ryusoulger might actually remember what character development sounds like with the arrival of Nada,
The full five Core team comes at you again to discuss the debut of Kamen Rider Vulcan, how an actual good song is misused for boring evil in Ryusoulger, and in honor of Robert Axelrod, we discuss the trilogy of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers where Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa get married. Does it hold up well? Hmm...
IT'S HERE! Kamen Rider Zero-One has debuted and it's amazing!! But before we can get to talk about it, we have to trudge through this week's Ryusoulger, inwhich Canalo undergoes a filler episode that tasted like a hollow pastry - it could have been a great episode for development but ended up being completely devoid of meaning, and it's pushing us to the edge in tolerating Ryusoulger's absolutely unsatisfying flavor now that we're at the halfway mark. But forget that because robots! AI! Hackers! Gut-busting male stripperbots! 3D printing! Cloud saves! Happily murdering androids! Wow! In lieu of a feature topic, we spend an extra amount of time going over the show, what we liked, and making some predictions for the show going forward. And oh what's this? Ichi has a surprise for the bumper? Welcome to the next year of Castranger, everyone!
With the formal reveal of Kamen Rider Zero-One, we have a few corrections and additions to last week's episode to go over. We also get confirmation of Ichi's Ryusoulger prophecy, we were right about Austin St. John returning, another customizeable SHF, and a bunch of reveals from San Diego Comic Con.
ChouRaven and Xenshin join us at the perfect time because Zero-One scans have leaked! We pore over the mmeticulously and give our thoughts. Next, the HieHiesoul rears its head, but the head wearing it isn't what Ichi was expecting. Ports, DLC, Music, and news on the next Power Rangers movie, among others, populate the rest of this week's newsreel.
