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.
Our other resident Amber (@tokuswag) joins Dan to catch up on shows, toys, and most importantly, Grease! News is filled with Kitties (of the Hello variety), and even MORE toys. Plus we’ve seen like a dozen new Build forms that we’re going to have to dissect on the Spoiler Train.
Build 21 was certainly a tough one to live through, but we’re able to find the fun. And it’s even EASIER with Part 1 of ‘Raising the Hazard Level’ where Sento and Utsumi get REAL excited!
And in Listener Feedback, we’ll all send Misora and Banjo on some friend dates and catch up on more past topics.
February starts with a bang as Dan & Faiz tackle a massive amount of News and Spoilers. Lots of little bits of news lead us into spoilers for Build, including new characters and new forms, plus trailers for that Rogue spin-off and the Amazons movie. It’s also the 15th Faiziversary!
Things are getting hazardous in Build 20 as we juuuust get a peak at that new form. More on that next time! And 555 episode 15 has us question Orphenoch physiology AND morality.
Then in Feedback, we find out what sorts of Kamen Riders tickle your fancy!
Returning from a brief post-holiday hiatus, Dan is joined by Destiny Amber, who has some very exciting news! We get into some cosplays she’s developing, what toku we’ve been watching, and chat a bit about our excitement for Lupinranger vs Patoranger. Slow news month, but Banana’s carrying a torch, and we have new Ex-Aid theme music!
There are three episodes of Build to catch up on (17, 18, & 19), and they introduce us to four exciting new characters. Hope they all stick around! And Misora shocks us at the end!!
For Listener Feedback, we’ll find out which actors and actresses you’d like to see return to Kamen Rider, but cast in a new role!
