This week on Rider Love, there’s a lot of Gaim stuff happening right now for some reason, and Saber’s getting an awesome new Rider with an awkward Wonder Ride Book! Speaking of which, in Saber 6 & 7, we discuss our complicated thoughts on where the series is headed. And Den-O 26 continues its convoluted path to the movie.

This week on Rider Love, we finally witness Yua casting aside her allegiance to ZAIA  in Zero-One 32 & 33! We also get our first look at Aruto’s next powerup, and discuss the precautions Toei is taking as production resumes.

 

This podcast was recorded one week before this posting. The protests following the murder of George Floyd had just begun and had certainly not become what they have today. We do not make mention of them in this episode.

We want to make it clear that all of us here at Rider Love fully support these peaceful protests and agree that they are sadly needed to stand up to the blatant discrimination that takes place every day in this country. We mourn the deaths of all those who have fallen victim to racism at the hands of law enforcement officials, and hope that by taking a stand, changes will be made, and that those responsible will be brought to justice.

Please follow this link for more information on what you can do to help.

Stay strong. Be kind. Stay safe.

Black Lives Matter.

On a related but much lighter note, we share our thoughts on Kiramager so far, and our excitement for the series to come. And don’t worry, we talk about Kamen Rider too.

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!

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!!

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.
