Can you believe it’s been TWO YEARS to the day since Episode 1 of Rider Love?! It’s been quite the journey, in Kamen Rider and in life. We have so much exciting stuff to cover this week, including Build 34, 555 19, some rumors for the Build summer movie, and most importantly, the trademark for the next Rider series has apparently been revealed! We’ve also got YOUR feedback about what sorts of games you’d like to see with a Kamen Rider theme!
It’s going to be an exciting summer, and we can’t wait to make Year 3 of Rider Love the best one yet!
Get ready to be very VERY jealous of DestinyAmber, because SHE appears as a background extra in the Genm vs. Lazer V-Cinema!! We talk all about the filming experience, a brief interaction with the actors, and exactly how close DID she get to Kiriya…? Dan finally watched Chou Superhero Taisen, and we’re excited for Ultraman R/B! Oh, and there’s a LOT of Kamen Rider news as well.
Build 32 & 33 flippity-flop the script on us a bit. We don’t know who’s good and who’s bad anymore. We DO know who’s in Martian Club, and it’s for sure this Evol bitch.
We carry Amber’s film cameo experience through to Feedback as we find out which Kamen Rider scenes YOU’D like to appear in!
Be prepared! We are immature children and this week it’s episode 69… nuff said. TokuSwag and Dan talk through the Kamen Rider news of the week, as well as some Super Sentai and Ultraman things we’re excited about!
Build 30 & 31 bring us into the Cube and into Banjo’s mama’s special places! Have mercy.
And THEN, in Listener Feedback, it’s a first! Dan is joined by none other than Lady Faiz! We catch up and then read through the infamous Kamen Rider Blade “Milk Fic”, which we’ve turned into a hilarious game of MadLibs with the help of our listeners. Strap yourselves in as we lose our crap with delight!
With Lady Faiz on Spring Break, we catch up on what’s been going on in our lives, as well as in the Kamen Rider sphere. Just FYI, as this episode was recorded LAST week, recent news developments (such as Build scans) will be addressed NEXT podcast.
Build 27 continues the battle begun last time. Were you gullible like Dan, or an intuitive genius like Faiz? And in 555 episodes 17 & 18, we enjoy the beauty that is the Takumi/Kiba cuteness, see our beloved Chaco again, and are finally rid of Kaixa… for now.
This week, TokuSwag joins Dan to talk about her initial Lupinranger vs Patranger thoughts, the fall of the titan that WAS Toys R Us, and what very well may become Amber’s regular Japanese entertainment update. News is full of Kamen Rider actors being cast in stuff, and there has been a lot Hibiki goings-on, which is perfect for Amber!
Build 26 kicks off a second battle arc, reveals a predictable traitor, and mooshes two boys together. Raising the Hazard Level is also still a thing, and Part 2 happened. That’s about it.
In Listener Feedback, we make time for you to pimp some of your other favorite podcasts, toku or otherwise. But really Dan just wanted an opportunity to gush about his new podcast obsession. It’s scandalous!
It’s a bit of a bite-sized Rider Love this week, as we only have the one new episode of Build. But Destiny Amber and Dan fill the time with chat about the week’s news, including peeks at upcoming Ex-Aid, Amazons, AND Rogue content!
Build 25 is jam-packed with surprises, whether it be Misora’s new powers and link to the Pandora Box, the Nanba Children, spy reveals, or an unfortunate character exit. Well, maybe that last one wasn’t a surprise. The discussion spurs lots of theorizing about what Mars, the Pandora Box, and many of our characters, are after.
And in Listener Feedback, we find out which Kamen Rider series have the best monster suits, in your opinion. ❤
Faiz is back, and there’s so much to talk about! There’s Lupin/Pato, Beast Morphers, a 555/Kabuto double feature, Agito, and even a bit of Devilman Crybaby! We revisit some past fave actors in News, and on the Spoiler Train we look forward to some Build scans and movie teasers!
Gentoku’s really cracked as he enacts his plans in Build 24, and in 555 16, Kusaka’s… just vile.
Feedback this week takes the form of a short bit of listener-submitted fan-fiction! An exciting and touching little number. Won’t you join us?
Who’s ready to get FUNKY?! Destiny Amber joins Dan to break down all the happenings in toku this week, including a lot of surprising Power Rangers news! We also give our initial impressions of the newest Super Sentai season, Lupinranger vs Patoranger, and Dan comes bearing his final thoughts on Kamen Rider Wizard.
Build episodes 22 & 23 do it to us again, hitting us right in those tender spots. But we do get to meet two new gents and feast our eyes on THREE lovely new suits!
Rounding things out with Listener Feedback we take a look at some of your toy collections, and discuss your methods of managing them.
