Episode 131 – “Vibes Dude” – 03.25.20

This week on Rider Love, well… we’re here, and that’s something. It’s been a rough few weeks as you all know, but we’re glad to have Kamen Rider to distract us. We check back in with Zero-One 23 & 24 in which ladies lust after robots and Izu teaches us some swears. Not one but TWO new tokusatsu streaming services have come to light. And Dan got a Switch so you know his tongue’s primed and ready!

Episode 129 – “Toku Cultures” – 02.05.20

This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz are joined by DestinyAmber to talk about the important things in life… Kitties, K-Pop, and Kamen Rider! Zero-One 19 & 20 made us a tad uncomfortable with its depiction of a deranged real estate agent, but we got two great new Humagear out of it. There’s a lot of high quality news including streaking toku alumni, awkward collectible abdominals, and even more Hello Kitty collabs. Plus Faiz & Amber share their reactions and excitement for Kiramager! We round things out with Listener Feedback and your theories on Gai Zaia’s youthful secret!!

Episode 126 – “I Have a Type” – 12.29.19

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!

Episode 124 – “Yua Narc” – 12.18.19

This week on Rider Love, it was kind of a slow news week, but we still have plenty to talk about as we catch up with Zero-One episodes 12-14! The best danged robot detective we’ve ever met brings out some new emotions in us AND in Izu, and we meet a hot and angy space boy who better come back or we riot.

Episode 123 – “Peak Himbo” – 12.11.19

This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz are once again reunited, and it feels so good! We kick off with the recent rumors surrounding Zero-One’s length. Most likely bogus, but it’s fun to speculate. Then, we’re VERY to start catching up with Zero-One in episodes 9-11 where Horobi plays favorites, and we meet a guy named Gai. Lastly, we flash back to Thanksgiving and find out what you’re most thankful for in toku this year!

Episode 121 – “Resting Ankh Face” – 11.06.19

This week on Rider Love, Dan & Faiz come in from out of the cold to catch up on all things Rider, but more importantly, the dramatic goings-on of the Kpop world. No really, we’re devastated. But we get back on track eventually. There are lots of KR toys being teased, at Tamashii Nations and elsewhere. Plus we’ve got winter movie forms, cast, AND a teaser! Then it’s on to Zero-One episodes 7 & 8 where we meet our stealth new favorite character, get scarred by ear holes, and Fuwa dies. RIP.

Episode 120 – “McGruff the Crime Dog” – 10.12.19

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.
