Episode 114 – “AquaMike” – 8.14.19

This week on Rider Love, we’re almost to the end of Kamen Rider Zi-O! We discuss episodes 44-46 (the Movie Rider arc), and things go DOWN.

For now, we’ll celebrate the announcement of Zero-One’s suit actor (thank you for your years of service, Mr. Kamen Rider), and all the other important news of the week.
