This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz taste test all of the delicious fruit offered up in Kamen Rider Zi-O episodes 11 & 12, and debate whether lobster ladies give good hugs in 555 episode 37. We also have some highly anticipated magazine scans on the Spoiler Train, and get a bit bit mushy in Listener Feedback.
This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz REALLY dissect Kamen Rider Zi-O episode 9. From Kuroto Dan to Sougo, we’re a little bit… confused where this series is going. We then pick things up with 555 episodes 35 & 36, which were refreshing and exciting by comparison! All that plus a jam packed News section and some MORE winter movie casting!
This week on Rider Love, it’s all about Takumi Inui as we discuss Kamen Rider Zi-O episode 6, finally get to a big reveal in 555 episodes 33 & 34, address the franchise’s western fanbase, and take a peek at some upcoming armor forms and actor cameos coming to Zi-O!
Also, we can announce that we’re official podcast partners of the Tokusatsu Network! This is fully explained at the beginning of this week’s podcast.
Obligatory Monsta X plug:
The Zi-O magazine scans are lookin’ pretty hot this week! Lots of spooky Another Riders, spicy Forms, and surprising cameos in store!
Zi-O episode 4 has us a bit… confused. Maybe the .5’s can clear it up for us. And 555 episodes 31 & 32 introduce us to a very dashing Orph of the week. He wears a suit, and may or may not be a gorgeous man. You decide!
Faiz is back again, so we finally get to hear HER thoughts on these beginning stages of Zi-O. And there’s lots of fashion and delicacies to analyze for like… 30 minutes. Forgive us.
Zi-O episode 3 takes us back a couple years to reunite with some pretty rad doctors/gamers. 555 episodes 29 & 30 continue to frustrate us with how terrible Kusaka is. At least we get some horsey love out of it!
Fresh back Power Morphicon, Destiny Amber joins Dan & Faiz to let them know about all the fun they missed out on! From Ranger reveals to cosplay to meet-ups, it sounds like it was a blast. A few more Zi-O details have surfaced, and it’s hard to believe we’re only a week away!
Build 48 continues the grief train, but we’ll cheer Gentoku on with the rest of the population. And 555 28 really kicks this into high gear! We finally meet Kitazaki after two million years. About time!
Build (and this podcast) return from a week off to a rather depressing episode of Kamen Rider! But don’t worry, there’s still plenty to be excited about and lift our spirits. First, we announce the Rider Love Awards! Then we do a quick look back at our first impressions of the Build cast when they were announced a year ago, followed by our first look of the Kamen Rider Zi-O cast, characters, and trailer!
Build 47… was a rough one, but it was a beautiful acted AND directed episode. 555 27 on the other hand, had some evil jerks, but also a hot guy, so yay!
And in Listener Feedback, we get YOUR first impressions of the Zi-O cast reveal.
Zi-O has been “officially” announced, so we know the general plot, the names of some of the production staff, and we’ve got oodles of new magazine scans!
Build 45 goes all Super Saiyan on our asses, as Evolt gets even sexier. And 555 25 & 26 introduce us to TWO exciting new Orphenochs we can’t wait to get to know more!
Dan & Faiz tear themselves away from binging Terrace House long enough to record a podcast! And we’ve got some exciting stuff this week. There are new Build Scans and along with them, a better look at Kamen Rider Zi-O’s silhouette!
Build 41 sees Evolt having an emotional awaken of sorts, and in 555 24, PunchHopper is a bunny. That’s right. A demonic bunny.
And in Listener Feedback, we discuss what YOU guys are looking forward to seeing in those upcoming Zi-O reveals!
THIS week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz are here! It’s been a week… but what else is new? Dan’s watched the Ex-Aid ‘Another Ending’ Trilogy, Faiz got consumed by E3, and we’ve BOTH become obsessed with Terrace House!
Unfortunately, there was a death in the Build crew this week. That kicks off quite a big slate of news, and that leads into taking a look at that Zi-O silhouette teaser! He’s bald. Maybe. AND there are rumors! And you know how much we like those.
Build 39 & 40 feature creepy Utsumi, CREEPIER Gentoku, and all the mushy bro love you can handle. And in 555 23, Kusaka crosses a line. I’m going to go watch more Terrace House.
