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?
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?
It's Week 2 of no Super Hero Time. As per fan poll, our dicussion topic for this week is Symphogear, and man do most of the Castrangers have lots to say about this show that posits - "What if magical girls sing their own battle themes?" Next, because we miss Zero-One so much, we discuss the Hyper Battle Video and the Taro special. Or should we say, the Tarlo special?
Required Viewing: Senki Zesshou Symphogear 1-2, Kamen Rider Zero-One Hyper Battle Video: What Will Pop Out of the Kangaroo? Think About It by Yourself! Yes! It must be me, Aruto! Kamen Rider Zero-One: A Miraculous Rematch!? Aruto VS Fukkinhoukai Taro: Fateful Gag Battle!
The Delightful Raven From Down The Lane graces our studio once again as we continue our catchup of stuff that got subbed a month or so ago. First off, we discuss how Kamen Riders saved vegetables forever. Next, the Green Ranger plays a Shadow Children's Card Game. Finally, we discuss the Geiz Majesty movie. Can the McRider's Secondary Rider Sandwich Happy Meal possibly pacify the crying child that is the terrible Zi-O series?
Raven, former Red Caster, now Crimson Caster, joins us again as we begin catching up on released movies. But first, Raven gives his thousand-dollar thoughts on Zero-One up to this point, then we discuss Kamen Rider Valkyrie's glorious return. Jewel gets revenge on his teammates and ekes a new megazord out of the deal. Finally, we discuss Reiwa Generations, aka finally we learn what's up with Aruto's robot dad and why he's Kamen Rider Ichigata. But with Zi-O skulking around, could this story possibly make sense?
Gar goes hard for the last week of Metal April III, as we discuss the sentai at the turn of the millennium, Timeranger. How similar is it to Power Rangers Time Force, and who did it better? But first, Fuwa's got a sweet new job at Hiden Manufacturing, Naki is showing signs of being a character, and Yua yanks Fuwa's gun and shoots him? Next, we discuss how the Kiramagers are running Jewel ragged with their hellish training. Finally, join us for a lengthy discussion on why Timeranger was the perfect sentai for its time.
It's week 2 of Metal April III, but first off, we discuss how Aruto Gets His Groove Back after actually losing Hiden Intelligence, and KiramaYellow pulls some Epic Gamer Moves™. Our feature topic this week is Denziman. Can its steel fists, first transforming megazord, and talking dog mascot save this otherwise bland-ass sentai?
The Three Isolated Casters assemble against all medical advice to bring you another episode. We discuss the debut of Yua as the Fighting Jackal Raider, the surprisingly good musical stylings of MC Check It Out, the shockingly emotional range of the usually stoic blue ranger, and for our feature topic, Tokusatsu Gagaga reaches its climax - the visit from her mom.
