Episode 121 – “Resting Ankh Face” – 11.06.19

This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz come in from out of the cold to catch up on all things Rider, but more importantly, the dramatic goings-on of the Kpop world. No really, we’re devastated. But we get back on track eventually. There are lots of KR toys being teased, at Tamashii Nations and elsewhere. Plus we’ve got winter movie forms, cast, AND a teaser! Then it’s on to Zero-One episodes 7 & 8 where we meet our stealth new favorite character, get scarred by ear holes, and Fuwa dies. RIP.

Episode 120 – “McGruff the Crime Dog” – 10.12.19

This week on Rider Love*, Dan invites TokuSwag over to speculate on HumaGear relationships and get HER impressions of our new kids thus far in Zero-One episode 6. Then we each throw on a couple hats and thirst after yet more wolves in Den-O 17!

*This one’s been on the hard drive for a bit, so events might not be the most topical… like discussion of the “currently happening” Japanese typhoon for instance.

Episode 119 – “EEEnchiladas” – 10.02.19

This week on Rider Love, we tackle Zero-One episodes 4 & 5, in which we learn more about Daybreak Town (NOT just a location in Kingdom Hearts) and speculate on the nebulous relationship between Jim & Horobi. We also hold a Kamen Rider job fair in Listener Feedback, but be prepared for things to go a bit off the rails. People won’t stop interrupting us!

Episode 114 – “AquaMike” – 8.14.19

This week on Rider Love, we’re almost to the end of Kamen Rider Zi-O! We discuss episodes 44-46 (the Movie Rider arc), and things go DOWN. We’re still bummed about the character development the Time Jackers received, but HOO BOY, do past Dan & Faiz have no idea what’s coming in reference to Tsukuyomi… but more that next time. For now, we’ll celebrate the announcement of Zero-One’s suit actor (thank you for your years of service, Mr. Kamen Rider), and all the other important news of the week. Whip out your lucky undies, and join us for the fun!
