Episode 59 – “On the Down-and-Down” – 01.02.18

Dan & Faiz start the new year off right with a brand new podcast. Faiz is wrapping up her winter break, and Dan gives his first impressions of both Kamen Rider Blade AND Kamen Rider Wizard!

Build 16 was the Christmas episode, and *SHOCK* Toei brought us another death… in a way. And we dust of 555 for episode 14 and try and fail to hide our disdain for Kusaka.

Then in Listener Feedback, we all make a big ol’ list of what toku we plan to watch for the first time this year!

Episode 58 – “Reginald J. Pac” – 12.26.17

This week, Dan & Faiz are recovering from our Christmas festivities. There was some general toku-actor-cast-in-stuff news ALONG WITH an exciting surprise Build casting!

We finally made it around to the Ex-Aid/Ghost/Drive/Wizard/Gaim movie featuring Pac-Man from over a year ago! You can listen to us try to remember things and get reacquainted with all of our friends, and meet a couple new ones.

As for Feedback, we’ll get your thoughts on the discontinuation of the Super Hero Taisen movies. Get yourself some gravy and settle in.

Episode 57 – “Sento Soda & Eiji Milk” – 12.20.17

Faiz and Dan have had quite a year, and this week has definitely been no exception. The beginning of the podcast is a little bit of a downer, but we promise we’re here to have some fun and be as kooky and scatterbrained as we always are. There have been some recent Kamen Rider movie developments, fun new OOO designs, and Build scans to give us a tasty taste of some of the upcoming happenings.

Speaking of Build, in episodes 14 & 15, there secret reveals and confirmations galore. Let’s just hope Toei does us better THIS Christmas than they did last year…

And yeah, it’s that holiday time of year, so we asked our listeners what Kamen Rider goodies they’d love to receive under their tree and/or other holiday totem.

Build 12 & 13 bring us one step closer to finally discovering the true identity of Blood Stalk, and we get two awesome new Best Matches that each have a nifty set of powers!

Episode 55 – “1234 Grave St.” – 11.22.17

It’s Thanksgiving week here in the United States, so we’re celebrating everything about Kamen Rider (and toku in general) that makes you the most thankful this year! Plus LOTS of holiday food tangents…

Dan finished Kabuto this week, so we can have one of those patented, vague, spoiler-free Rider Love discussions about it for a minute. They also hit us with some Ex-Aid trilogy scans and details which need to be dissected.

And in the last two weeks worth of Build (10 & 11), it’s all about chains and dragons as Sento  loses almost everything and Banjo finally joins the 3.0 Club and Riders up!

Episode 54 – “Honey Nut Feelios” – 11.10.17

With Build having taken the week off for (of all things) a relay race, it’s the perfect opportunity for Dan & Faiz to return to their Ghost roots and catch up with one of those movies we never saw! It’s not one of our favorites (through no fault of the cast), but them Ghost feels always get us.

Dan’s actually watched a few eps of Kabuto this week, so Faiz can once again warn him of the craziness to come. And it’s not a big news week, but we somehow find a way to talk at length, including those spoilery Build forms we’re looking forward to this month.

Finally, we were way past due naming our heart-headed bug-child, so we turned to YOU guys in Feedback for some help! ❤

Episode 53 – “Hugging Dudes” – 10.30.17

What are the odds that TWO regular podcast guests named Amber would BOTH travel to Japan this year? Pretty good I guess, as DestinyAmber returns with HER tales. She did some shopping, went to multiple stage shows, and actually had a cameo in a *secret* thing! More on that later. Oh, and Dan went to a convention. 😛

Build 8 all but confirms our theories about Stalk, while launching a whole new set of theories about Sento. And we finally get some quality Misora time in Build 9. SUCH a cute friend date!

Then in Listener Feedback, we learn which Kamen Rider actors you guys would most like to run into at a convention. Can I just meet Chase’s cats?!

Episode 52 – “Vape Tricks” – 10.20.17

It’s the triumphant return of Faiz (the show AND the lady)! They dropped a new ‘Heisei Generations Final’ trailer on us right before recording, which gives us excellent excuse to have a chat about some returning gents, as well as those recent Build scans, and any other recent news.

We have a couple excellent listener emails which we’ve scattered throughout the show, as they pertain to the two series we’re talking about this week. In Build 7, they reveal one adversary’s identity, leaving us to further speculate about the other. And in 555 13, we finally comes face to face with the one true Kaixa. You’ve really stepped in it this time, Takumi!

Episode 51 – “Night Stalk” – 10.11.17

Please welcome back Alan (Kamen Rider Glover) to the show, as he joins Dan to talk about a PLETHORA of new Build scans, revealing new forms and characters, as well as that Heisei Generations FINAL trailer that’s been the talk of the town!

Mystery and plot kicks into high gear in Build 5 & 6 as we meet possibly the grossest character (Icky Teeth Man Part 2?), as well as the greatest character (noisy robot dragon boy)!

Continuing our ongoing speculation about the identities of the Build baddies, we’ve asked for YOUR theories in Listener Feedback!

Episode 50 – “Crotch Rivets” – 09.30.17

Here we go again, kids! Amber (TokuSwag) forgot about her visit to Kamen Rider Black’s steakhouse when she was recently in Japan, so she’s back to tell Dan all about it! There have also been Build scans, possible rumors, toy reveals, and even Sentai trademarks to briefly touch upon!

Build 4 continues to ramp up the intrigue as we wonder what that hot cafe dad Souichi could possibly be plotting.

Finally, you have lots of tasty ideas in Feedback as we dream up delectable Rider Diner creations!
