Rider Break! Episode 06: The Devil's In The Details

A tribute to's kinda-sorta namesake, plus the first-ever Rider Break! contest! Which is now long over!

This episode was originally released on 7/14/2012

In This Episode: 

• Rider Break!'s shortest episode yet (next one'll be longer, I just wanted to try something different.)

• Kamen Rider Wizard gets some new toys!

• Some brief thoughts on Kamen Rider Fourze episodes 41 & 42!

• The Top 6 Reasons Ikadevil is My Favorite Rider Kaijin Of All Time.

• Plus an exciting announcement you must sit through the episode to hear (though if you're listening to this any time after 2012, it no longer applies.)

Episodes Notes:

• Music used includes:

"Let's Go!! Rider Kick 2006" by Hiroshi Fujioka
"Shocker Pursuit" (BGM)
"Shocker of the Devil" (BGM)
"Fight! Cyclone" by Masato Shimon

• This was the shortest gap between two episodes ever! While there likely won't be another one until the end of the month/early August, hopefully this is the start of more regular episodes of this little podcast.

•  Recording this episode was almost as difficult as the filming for the Rider episode I spend the majority of it talking about. My voice was starting to go early on, and I recorded this while juggling a billion other things (including Ishinomori Week) so it's all a bit, as I say in the episode, haphazard. I had to record it in chunks at different times, hence some slight changes in volume & sound quality. I also notice I slur a couple words together ("astronaut and all that" and "good on you" is what I was saying.) Despite all that, this was one of my favorite episodes to do.

• Wizard pictures described in the episode can be found here and here.

 Sound clips in this episode come from Kamen Rider episodes 68 & 93, as well as All Riders vs. Daishocker.

 For a comparison of Girizames & Ikadevil:

Notice the "cowl" motif I mention, plus the golden belt buckles (and, now that I think about it, the silvery belts, the aquatic theme, even the asymmetric left hand. I forgot to mention that even poor Girizames was a victim of the behind-the-scenes shenanigans, with the trailer for episode 67 using the earlier scenario name of "Nokogirizames".

 Hopefully the contest rules are clear enough and this won't turn out to be a total disaster! I think it's simple enough: retweet or favorite the message for this episode post. That's it! I'll worry about the rest.

 I mention no other sites, podcasts or people on this episode. Give them all a visit anyway!
