This week on Rider Love, we’re celebrating our 100th episode! It’s been a fun ride, and it’s about to get even MORE wild, because it’s all about time travel with Zi-O 22 and Kamen Rider Den-O episodes 1 & 2! Plus we’ve been slacking, so we’ve got about 3 weeks of news to speed through. Listener Feedback is EXTRA fun this week, because in addition to hearing YOUR thoughts about the first two episodes of Den-O, we’ve got some fun celebratory questions from you. And Dan may have had a drink, who can say? Choo choo!!
This week on Rider Love, we FINALLY bid adieu to Kamen Rider 555 with episodes 48-50, as well as the magical musical production that is the 555 Hyper Battle Video. It can’t be missed! There’s lots of Kamen Rider news, but WE’RE most excited for the Power Rangers biz revealed at New York Toy Fair. All that, plus we send 555 out the Rider Love way, with YOUR Listener Feedback!
Obligatory Monsta X plug:
This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz experience the mirror world of Ryuki for the very first time in Kamen Rider Zi-O episode 21, and we have our PENULTIMATE 555 discussion with episodes 46 & 47. As usual, lots of exciting news as well, including the announcement of the Grease V-Cinema and which sentai alum will be playing a future Rider THIS time!
This week on Rider Love, Dan welcomes back TokuSwag to talk about her latest trip to Japan! There’s more future Rider action in Kamen Rider Zi-O episodes 18-20, and we begin to question French Woz more than we were before. In Sentai news, the Ryusoulger cast has been revealed, and in Spoilers we’ve got a sneak peek at some divisive new Zi-O suits, including Sougo’s final form!
This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz are back (FINALLY) for our first recording of the year. Kamen Rider Zi-O episodes 16 & 17 double up on the new Riders, and 555 44 & 45 cut a young love story short all too soon. We’ve got nearly a month’s worth of news to barrel through, including spin-offs, returning characters, and casting news, not to mention YOUR feedback and theories on who Sougo’s mystery dream gentleman might be!
This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz continue to greatly enjoy Kamen Rider Zi-O with episode 15! (Who would have ever that THAT would happen?) We finally get some movement on the romantic plotline in 555 episodes 42 & 43. (We’ll see how that pans out next week.) And News is jam-packed with surprising movie cameos, Zi-O scans, and some casting that we’re very excited about!
This week on Rider Love, Dan & CoolDownNow welcome Decade, the Destroyer of Worlds himself, to Kamen Rider Zi-O episodes 13 & 14! We also continue our march to the end of 555 with episode 41. And THEN, Dan brings on special guest (and regular co-host) Faiz for a ridiculous edition of holiday-themed Mad Libs!
This week on Rider Love, Dan & Destiny Amber take a brief break from Zi-O to discuss Kamen Rider 555 episodes 38, 39, and 40, or ‘How Takumi Got His Groove Back.’ Rider news is a bit light this week, but luckily we’ve been blessed with an abundance of OTHER toku news including the Kishiryu Sentai Ryuusouger reveal, some Ultraman tidbits, and Amber gets to explain to Dan what the heck Tokusatsu Gagaga is!
This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz taste test all of the delicious fruit offered up in Kamen Rider Zi-O episodes 11 & 12, and debate whether lobster ladies give good hugs in 555 episode 37. We also have some highly anticipated magazine scans on the Spoiler Train, and get a bit bit mushy in Listener Feedback.
This week on Rider Love, Dan & Destiny Amber wrap up the OOO arc in Kamen Rider Zi-O episode 10, dive into the week’s news (including the Heisei Generations Forever trailer), relive Amber’s recent trip to Japan, and find out what YOU’RE most thankful for in tokusatsu this year!
