This week on Castranger it's Things That Suck Week, between the debut of the black hole-using Kamen Rider Wind, and the Vacuum Kurumajuu on Boonboomger, as we discuss Gotchard finally getting back to its plot, and how Boonboomger continues its acceleration forward. Finally, we take a trip back to the series of racism and sadness as we discuss more of Kamen Rider Black Sun.

It's Castranger's 10th anniversary and we're celebrating by discussing Iron Gotchard, aka Captain Train Hands, as well as the debut of Boonboomger, the back-to-basics sentai oozing style the way cars ooze gas into the ozone. We discuss our thoughts on the debut episode as well as our thoughts and ideas about where this show might go from here.

It's the Kingohger finale and we're not ready to say goodbye to what might be the greatest sentai most of us have and will ever see, especially for Ichi. But first, we have to get this Gotchard clip show out of the way, but not too fast because they also debuted two new forms this week! Finally, the saga of kings comes to its end, but just how epic was the final galactic battle? As is Castranger tradition, we forego a feature topic...

This week on Castranger, we discuss the revealed Boonboomger characters, the debut of Majade MoonCerberus as Gotchard defeats Kingdom Hearts, how Kingohger's penultimate episode absolutely evokes Avengers Endgame with its war against Dugded, and finally, Emily stays for our feature topic as we do this year's Precurary, the show about how a dog became a human and cured evil rabies.

It's Gar's last episode for a while as he's taking some time off for school. But first, we discuss some news, some tangents, a lovey-dovey vampire cult, the Kingohgers' SUPER Evacuation Plan, and Kamen Rider X-Men.

This week on Castranger, we discuss the debut of Kamen Rider Valvarad, aka How Many Times Can Spanner Watch His Parents Die? Next, Kingohger executes their amazing evacuation to Bugnarokland Plan and finally ends Grodie's reign of terror and death. Finally, we discuss the first episode of Dogengers, a show we've not only been pronouncing wrong but was a super charming and fun show about a bunch of actual local city Japanese heroes ...

Emily's not here, but Paul, Cel, and Blaze (just for news) are here, and it's a chaos-wrought episode this week as we discuss the big Boonboomger trailer and initial toy reveal of all the cars, go over the newly and recently released Chemies and Legend Rider Cards, and then talk about Spanner getting brutalized and Jeramie making an amazing sacrifice in this week's episodes. No feature topic as we spent too much time on the news.

It's a laugh-packed episode this week as The Four Casters of Light come together to discuss how the first female secondary Rider, Kamen Rider Majade, debuts to save the little flute girl.

Gar takes over the News Mode with some Ultra/Kaiju, then hands his spot in the show to Jerry as we discuss the debut of Fire Gotchard, the Kingohgers awakening the power of their symbols, and the amazing Geats movie, literally breaking Ace up into different and amazing personas as the DGP team deals with a terrorist from beyond time.

This week's feature topic was perfectly timed with this week's Kingohger. But first, Gotchard changes up its status quo with the Moon Malgam, Minato becoming Dredd, and the main characters effectively becoming rebels. Kingohger dips more into the history of Shugoddom, answering MANY long-standing questions since Kingohger's outset. Short version: Ichi was right. Finally, we discuss the Kingohger movie, aka the trip to the land of t...

Castranger's back for 2024 and what a DOOZY of a pair of Kingohger episodes to come back on! But first, Gotchard finishes debuting X-Rex, and the terrifying Jyamatonoorochi Malgam is taken down by the debut of the amazing Kamen Rider Gotchard Daybreak. Finally, the 17-year master plan by Racules Hasty comes to light as the Kuwagata Ohgers stand together to fight back against the king of the universe, as we analyze what we're seeing...

It's our yearly roundup of news while the main show's on break! We have the formal reveal of the next sentai, Bakuage Sentai Boonboomger, and we have some split opinions on them! We have the reveal of Kamen Riders Majade, Valvarad, and Gotchard Daybreak! The Memorial Ohgercalibur! And plenty else! But most of all, thank you for helping Castranger pass 2000 subs on YouTube! Hope everyone had a Happy Holiday and has a Happy New Year!...

It's our last episode of 2023! First off, some new sentai leaks has the fandom in a tizzy. We share thoughts on the suits. Both our toku episodes this week involve red T-Rexes. Weird. Gotchard goes Gurren Lagann. Prince reclaims his missing Gabutyra and Racles tries to convince everyone Gira is an alien clone, but we're not buying it. Finally, we experience the Sixth Ranger arc of High School Heroes.

This week on Castranger we finally fight back against cancel culture, oversensitive zoomers, piss, and social media. Or wait, no, the Abaranger anniversary movie does that. But first, Gotchard gets abducted by a polarizing new form, and Kingohger makes up for last week with the raw and primal Fangs of Defiance teamwide powerup.

It's a CRAZY week of tokusatsu this week. Kamen Rider Gotchard finally ratchets the plot into action with the forceful, bone-crunching debut of Kamen Rider Dread. Kingohger gives us a batshit crazy, fourth wall-breaking episode where Rita tries to become an idol. Kamen Rider Legend flexes his giant golden dick all over Decade, Diend, and Zi-O in Gotchard's presence.

This week, to mitigate the unabashed joy Ichi experienced last episode, we bring him crashing down to Earth by forcing him to watch a new Donbrothers thing. But first, Kajiki's love story progresses while Gotchard debuts two new forms, and some Himeno-related prophecies come to pass over in Kingohger.
