Subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

With Kamen Rider's 50th anniversary celebration still going strong, and the recent release of Shin Kamen Rider in North America, what better time to talk about just how huge an impact Shotaro Ishinomori's original creation had on Japanese pop culture...including it's huge influence on anime, manga, and fandom in general! And joining me to chat about it is none other than the Tokusatsu Troubadour, Mach Dent! Listen as we discuss how everything from shonen anime to magical girls to video games have been influenced by Kamen Rider, how easy it's gotten to get into the franchise now in the US, and going on random fun tokusatsu tangents! Listen in and join the shenanigans!
