Rider Jump 20 – Opening Countdown!

At the start of the new year, the Toei tokusatsu shows are on break, but we at the ToH(!!!) network aren’t!

In this episode, your friendly(?) hosts decide to steal from a couple other podcasts (such as HARK!) to rank the opening themes of the post-2000 Kamen Rider and Super Sentai in this, the Opening Countdown!

In this episode:

  • We’re just wingin’ it.  Seriously, there’s a frightful lack of preparation.
  • Sono and Aleph butt heads over the #1 spots
  • Aleph can’t believe how Surprise Drive ranks.
  • Sono can’t believe what an experience the Timeranger theme is.
  • Psychic Lover: great band name or GREATEST band name?
  • Favored tokusatsu-related aggro reaction gifs.

Our shows are on break, but between school and holidays and finals, we’ve missed a few episodes, so we thought we’d try not to leave a gap for as long as we’re able with a possibly shorter episode that we’ve threatened a few times and see about ranking some opening themes.
