Episode 42 – “Fire Emoji” – 07.25.17

Our excitement for Build continues to uh… build… as Dan & Faiz discover the initial creative staff behind the series as well as a few follow-up toy catalog scans.

Ex-Aid 39 takes a cruel turn as we say goodbye(?) to the floofiest Bugster to ever grace this Earth. And can you believe it?! We’re returning to our roots with Kamen Rider 555 episode 11! It’s been more than a full year, but it feels good to be home. Plus there’s an adorable dog!

Suit actor Seiji Takaiwa is the topic of Listener Feedback, as we find out your feelings on his extended tenure. Bunny!!

Episode 41 – “Build Bonanza” – 07.18.17

Kamen Rider Build is revealed! This is bound to be our favorite podcast every year. There’s just so much to speculate about! That’s probably why we spend well more than half of the episode talking about it. Forms, suits, weapons, story details. They just dumped so much on us at once!

But in ADDITION to all that, Ex-Aid continues, as we make our way through episodes 37 & 38. There’s redemption, tears, possible new friendships blooming.

Then it’s back to more Build talk in Feedback. You’re just as excited as we are. If you know what an aglet is, do a dance!

It’s finally here! Our discussion of the 2016 movie, ‘Kamen Rider Ichigo’! Dan & Faiz have plenty of love to share as our pals, the Ghost crew, team up with the O.G. Kamen Rider, Takeshi Hongo! They’ll battle the forces of Shocker, and we’ll discover a whole array of comical new kinks we didn’t know we had.

There’s news too! Rider has a new time slot, and what could that possibly mean? Plus, we go over a few last minute rumor morsels before Build is officially revealed, as well as that recently announced manga sequel to W. And we get FAR too excited about a mailman’s birthday. EEE!!!

Episode 36 – “Corn Godzilla” – 06.06.17

It’s our favorite time of the year here at Rider Love, next series rumor time! Dan & Faiz have probably our biggest Spoiler Section yet, as we have all the “Build” rumors to speculate about, in addition to MORE Ex-Aid scans and summer movie info. Ex-Aid 33 & 34 are full of tears and betrayal, but there’s a hint of a beautiful yellow boy at the end! To round things off, we’ll discuss our listeners’ favorite Showa Riders. All that and a WHOLE lot of giggling, on this week’s episode!

Episode 35 – “Nuevo Kuroto” – 05.24.17

Rider Love welcomes its first international guest! Dan is joined by Alan [no, not the takoyaki prince, but rather Kamen Rider (G)Lover].

It’s a light news week this week, mainly toys, which means we’ll get sidetracked a bit by Doctor Who and other geekery. But we’re very excited to dive into the latest two episodes of Ex-Aid (31 & 32) in which we learn the means by which our buddy “Nuevo Kuroto” has returned to us. We also welcome the return of another member of the Dan family and get lots of crackly Mountain Dew energy goodness! Rounding things out, we discuss your thoughts on foreign actors in Kamen Rider. Shh!

Dan & Faiz brave thunder and an oncoming tornado (okay that might be overdramatizing it a BIT) to bring you another podcast!

This week we witness the “Final Battle” between Emu and M in Ex-Aid 30, as well as welcoming back our favorite tight-pantsed psychopath! In Ghost 43 & 44, as we near the end, Onari begins to question his usefulness to the team, which makes for some VERY over-the-top and entertaining moments. Finally, in Feedback, we’ll discover what historical figures you would choose for your own personal Eyecon collection.

Dan & Faiz celebrate 1 YEAR of podcasting the only way we know how… drooling over shirtless men and thinking about how hungry we are! We try to work out the logistics of the recent “M” revelation in Ex-Aid 29, and watch as our friends in Ghost 41 & 42 have a Gramps-shaped revelation of their own. Wrapping things up, it’s all about music in Listener Feedback.

Thank you, Rider Lovers, for an awesome first year, and here’s to many more years of silliness! ❤
