This week on Rider Love, Dan & TokuSwag kick off 2020 a couple weeks late, because as you can hear, Dan was sick! We’ve both recently seen Star Wars, so that’s on our minds, as well as some more reveals for Kiramager. We wrap up the Metsuboyz Arc in Zero-One 16, and make a couple more Imagins into furries in Den-O 22. Then in Listener Feedback, we’ll check out what’s on your tokusatsu watchlists for the coming year!
This week on Rider Love, we’re in the Christmas spirit! DestinyAmber helps Dan open up multiple gifts Toei dropped down our chimney, including a first look at Mashin Sentai Kiramager! We get some festive holiday death in Zero-One episode 15, and dive deep into Amber’s thought on the series so far. Then in Den-O 21 we begin to see a little more of Yuto’s nuance. And finally, we have YOU all assign Kamen Riders to help Santa make his yearly delivery in Listener Feedback!
This week on Rider Love… HOO BOY, it’s been a minute. Dan & TokuSwag catch up on a whole bunch of toy news, including CSM announcements and that exciting THE HENSHIN event, plus we’ve got Zero-One scans, a couple trailers, and new Riders! Then we hop aboard the Moo Moo Express in Den-O 18-20* and meet an angsty child and his mother.
*Zero-One episode coverage will resume VERY soon.
This week on Rider Love*, Dan invites TokuSwag over to speculate on HumaGear relationships and get HER impressions of our new kids thus far in Zero-One episode 6. Then we each throw on a couple hats and thirst after yet more wolves in Den-O 17!
*This one’s been on the hard drive for a bit, so events might not be the most topical… like discussion of the “currently happening” Japanese typhoon for instance.
This week on Rider Love, we get our first tertiary female Kamen Rider EVER in Zero-One episode 3. With Valkyrie, Izu, and the excellent Shesta, the ladies this year are looking STRONG. Plus we finally have an OP, so TMR should be happy. Then we get trapped in a bathhouse for Den-O 15 & 16, and there’s a surprising happy ending!
This week on Rider Love, we discuss the return of the beautiful Chase and surprise reveal of Kamen Rider Tsukuyomi in Zi-O 47 & 48! There’s been an announcement about the Zero-One theme song, and we finally get back to Den-O 14 before things get crazy. Open a jar of sea pickles to enjoy while you listen!
This week on Rider Love, Faiz & Dan chat about two of their favorite things in the world, goth dudes and gremlin children! Those come to us in the form of the hellish Hopper Bros in Zi-O 37 & 38, and the unpredictable Ryutaros in Den-O episode 13. We’ve seen some nifty things in the latest round of Zi-O magazine scans, Dan insists on bringing up more Zero-One rumors, and Faiz teaches us how one becomes a kappa, whether we want to our not.
Obligatory Monsta X plug:
This week on Rider Love, DestinyAmber joins Dan to talk about that noble, well-meaning dumba**, Kintaros, in Den-O episodes 10-12! Kamen Rider Skull’s back (in interview form), we’ve got plot details from the Over Quartzer trailer, and Amber’s got a very exciting announcement about an upcoming move!!
This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz are finally acquainted with some Blade characters in Zi-O 29 & 30, as well as finding out where Riders store their power. Then in Den-O episode 9, we try not to cry when a big, yellow, burly bear comes on the scene. In Listener Feedback, we’re celebrating the beginning of Reiwa by finding out YOUR hopes for this new era of our favorite franchise!
This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz are reunited! We DO like to ramble, so please excuse all the cough drop, Fruits Basket, and Ultraman chat. Geiz & Sougo are freakin’ adorable in Zi-O 27 & 28, and we meet back up with Smart Lady (sort of) in Den-O episode 8. And in Listener Feedback, we discuss YOUR thoughts on Zi-O so far!
