2020 Rider Love Awards!

Screen Shot 2018-08-13 at 7.50.30 PM

With Kamen Rider Zero-One quickly coming to an end, it’s time once again for YOU to vote in the annual Rider Love Awards! Simply vote for your favorite characters, Rider suits, attractive men, etc. Then tune into our Zero-One finale podcast where we’ll announce the winners for each category!

Keep in mind, it was a bit more difficult to slot characters into a clear “hero” or “villain” category this year, and they seem to feel the need to introduce new forms right up until the end. So while we made an attempt, we’ve included a blank space to include your own answer.

Voting will end at Midnight EST on Monday, August 31st. VOTE NOW

And don’t forget, we’ll also need your responses to the Listener Feedback question: What are your final thoughts on Kamen Rider Zero-One as a series?” which will be posted on our Twitter following the finale. You can also submit your more long-winded responses to our Email.

Episode 136 – “Yua Yaiba’s Punch-Out” – 05.29.20

This week on Rider Love, we finally witness Yua casting aside her allegiance to ZAIA  in Zero-One 32 & 33! We also get our first look at Aruto’s next powerup, and discuss the precautions Toei is taking as production resumes.

This podcast was recorded one week before this posting. The protests following the murder of George Floyd had just begun and had certainly not become what they have today. We do not make mention of them in this episode.

We want to make it clear that all of us here at Rider Love fully support these peaceful protests and agree that they are sadly needed to stand up to the blatant discrimination that takes place every day in this country. We mourn the deaths of all those who have fallen victim to racism at the hands of law enforcement officials, and hope that by taking a stand, changes will be made, and that those responsible will be brought to justice.

Please follow this link for more information on what you can do to help.

Stay strong. Be kind. Stay safe.
