This week on Rider Love, Dan & CoolDownNow welcome Decade, the Destroyer of Worlds himself, to Kamen Rider Zi-O episodes 13 & 14! We also continue our march to the end of 555 with episode 41. And THEN, Dan brings on special guest (and regular co-host) Faiz for a ridiculous edition of holiday-themed Mad Libs!

This week on Rider Love, Dan & Destiny Amber take a brief break from Zi-O to discuss Kamen Rider 555 episodes 38, 39, and 40, or ‘How Takumi Got His Groove Back.’ Rider news is a bit light this week, but luckily we’ve been blessed with an abundance of OTHER toku news including the Kishiryu Sentai Ryuusouger reveal, some Ultraman tidbits, and Amber gets to explain to Dan what the heck Tokusatsu Gagaga is!

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!

It’s also been a big couple weeks of news, with S.H.Figuarts Kiva finally being announced, all those other Tamashii Nations toy reveals, and a Spoiler Train packed full of winter movie news! Plus we find out which Rider arcs you’d combine for Zi-O in Listener Feedback.

TokuSwag returns to give her first impressions of Kamen Rider Zi-O, and it’s a busy week, because we’ve got BOTH Fourze and Faiz to contend with! But FIRST, we get to those all important Q2 toy scans on the Spoiler Train, which reveal many exciting new suits and weapons! Some we appreciate, and some… could use a little work.

Zi-O episode 5 really ramps up the Rider nostalgia as we journey back to 2011 with our Fourze pals. We get just the briefest of 555 teasers, which prompts us to theorize about how things will wrap up in episode 6. Needless to say we were pretty wrong, but it’s always fun to speculate.

And most importantly, we get to hear which actors and characters YOU would like to see return for a Zi-O cameo in Listener Feedback. So many good shout-outs, but there are definitely a few very popular choices!

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!

It’s becoming a tradition, as DestinyAmber joins Dan to ring in a new series with Kamen Rider Zi-O! We’ve got a fair bit of news to get through as well, including the shocking revelation of Japan’s favorite Heisei Rider series. :-O

There’s so much to talk about with Zi-O episodes 1 & 2. New characters, suits, and more confusing plot that you can shake a Flintstone’s Push-Up at. Oh and we briefly throw 1.5 & 2.5 in there as well.

As always, we need to find out what you thought in Listener Feedback. And boy oh boy, did you deliver.

It’s true what they say, all good things must come to an end. This week, that means Kamen Rider Build. T_T It’s time to say farewell to Sento, Banjo, Misora, and all of our pals. But Zi-O is also in full gear already, so we’ll give just the briefest of initial reactions, plus lots of spoilery news.

Build 49 rounds off the series beautifully, and leaves us with so many questions about the future of this world!

It wouldn’t be a finale podcast without you’re say. We’ve held the first ever annual Rider Love Awards, where we’ll present some lovely purple trophies to the characters of Build based on your votes! And we had a lot of Listener Feedback based around this final episode and the series as a whole.

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.

Dan & Faiz are joined by CoolDownNow, longtime contributor, and first-time guest! The Kamen RIder Zi-O news and driver sound bites continue to roll in, and you bet your ass we spend our time on it, along with every other bit of news that dropped this week.

Build 46 sure knows how to play with the emotions. There are fake dead buddies, SO many men that should kiss, and ominous foreshadowing for our greasy potato pal.

And the Build talk continues in Listener Feedback as we ask how YOU’D like to see the series end!

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!

It’s our favorite podcast of the year! And not only because it’s the anniversary of Faiz’s birth. The Kamen Rider Zi-O toy scans are here, and we spend over an hour talking through it in obsessive detail, as well as getting YOUR thoughts on Zi-O in Listener Feedback! We also discuss Build 44, and Dan pressures Faiz to lick things live on the internet!

Peyton’s back! And this time it’s with Dan AND Faiz! We speed through all the stuff we’ve been watching (OOO, Stronger, Agito, Ultramen Mebius & Lube) to get to the important stuff, Kamen Rider Zi-O’s face!!*

In Build 42 & 43, Sento becomes just one of a long line of Riders with daddy issues, even within his own series, and Gentoku finally settles on a reasonable (yet still hilarious) fashion choice.

And Listener Feedback is chock full of YOUR Zi-O face reactions!

*Important note: All we’ve seen at the time of recording is the face and upper torso. The rest of the recent reveals will be discussed… NEXT week! ^_^

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.

Faiz is back from MomoCon! She had a blast and we’re ready to dive back into some Kamen Rider. BUT FIRST, let’s talk a little about shipping, shall we? There’s some casting and product news, along with just the tiniest morsel for the next series. Honestly, just confirming that it exists basically. Hopefully more next time?

Build 37 & 38 give us a whole slew of sexy new repaints, boys in other boys’ clothes, beat up gents, and they try to craft Kuroto Dan 2.0. Will they succeed? We’ll see! And speaking of shipping, 555 22 has more confessions and love triangles than you can shake a stick at.

TokuSwag’s back with Dan this week, and we both watched Heisei Generations Final! You’ll get our first impressions of that before we jump into this week’s Kamen Rider news including some toys, death threats, and scans (spoilers)!

Build 36 gives us the low-down on Evolt, some bonding time for Gentoku & Kazumin, and ends with an adorable albino rabbit Sento! And we finally wrap up ‘Raising the Hazard Level’ with Part 3. Sento rides his bike with a shark!!

Our Feedback Topic this week gets to your thoughts on arrests and scandals involving Kamen Rider. It’s a pretty serious subject, and it’s been coming up a lot. So HOPEFULLY this is it for the time being, and we can get back to our normal happy and positive ways. <3

Can you believe it’s been TWO YEARS to the day since Episode 1 of Rider Love?! It’s been quite the journey, in Kamen Rider and in life. We have so much exciting stuff to cover this week, including Build 34, 555 19, some rumors for the Build summer movie, and most importantly, the trademark for the next Rider series has apparently been revealed! We’ve also got YOUR feedback about what sorts of games you’d like to see with a Kamen Rider theme!

It’s going to be an exciting summer, and we can’t wait to make Year 3 of Rider Love the best one yet!

Get ready to be very VERY jealous of DestinyAmber, because SHE appears as a background extra in the Genm vs. Lazer V-Cinema!! We talk all about the filming experience, a brief interaction with the actors, and exactly how close DID she get to Kiriya…? Dan finally watched Chou Superhero Taisen, and we’re excited for Ultraman R/B! Oh, and there’s a LOT of Kamen Rider news as well.

Build 32 & 33 flippity-flop the script on us a bit. We don’t know who’s good and who’s bad anymore. We DO know who’s in Martian Club, and it’s for sure this Evol bitch.

We carry Amber’s film cameo experience through to Feedback as we find out which Kamen Rider scenes YOU’D like to appear in!
