Episode 46 – “Construction & Congestion” – 08.26.17

Fresh back from her recent trip to Japan, Amber (TokuSwag) is here to regale us with tales of her travels! Unfortunately, she caught a cold upon returning home, Dan’s allergies inexplicably got worse and worse throughout the podcast, and Amber’s landlord thought it was the PERFECT time to rebuild the apartment downstairs, so PLEASE bear with us. 😛

We talk about *possible* future Ex-Aid stories (this news was just being hinted at and had not fully broken at the time of recording), as well as Amber’s anticipation for Kamen Rider Build.

Ex-Aid 43 brings us RIGHT to the edge of the finale, and offers up some heart-wrenching Taiga drama, but also fosters conversation about what could/should have been done with Nico.

And with Ex-Aid coming to an early conclusion, we ask about the ideal length of a Kamen Rider series in Listener Feedback.

Episode 45 – “Tensai Gekai” – 08.16.17

Dan is joined by longtime listener, Peyton, to discuss her many passions, as well as the endless references in Kamen Rider Ex-Aid to the classic Osamu Tezuka creation, Black Jack!

Gamedeus makes an all-too-brief appearance in Ex-Aid 42, as Dan and Kiriya have a little slap-fest of their own.

And in a Listener Feedback section inspired by the recent W manga, we ask which Kamen Rider series YOU’D like to see resurrected in this format!

Episode 44 – “Maximum Johnny” – 08.09.17

DestinyAmber joins Dan this week to talk the all-important three C’s: Cosplay, Cons, and Cats!

The first chapter of the Kamen Rider W manga has been translated, and we touch very briefly on that (sans spoilers). And Ex-Aid: True Ending is out in Japan! What nuggets of Build/Ex-Aid goodness can we glean from that?

Ex-Aid 41 bids farewell… again… to that gorgeous Bugster of a man, Graphite, and we love up on the perfect double-act of Dan & Kiriya.

Episode 43 – “Doodle Kick” – 08.02.17

It’s basically Build Bonanza Part 2 as we spend just over an hour dissecting this week’s announcement of the Kamen Rider Build cast, theorize about the contents of the trailer, and gush about this year’s theme song! Rest assured, there is much ogling of the boys.

Ex-Aid 40 contains yet another resurrection, plus a team-up we didn’t expect. 555 episode 12 brings us one step closer to finding Kaixa, who’s sure to be the best character in the show… right?

Then in Feedback, it’s back to Build for YOUR reactions to this week’s press conference. Yay!
