Ultraseven #5: "Bless the ore down in Africa"

As the Belial Buds™ finish their bloody marathon with the last batch of Ultraseven adventures, they ask themselves, “Where have these episodes been all their lives?” From crucifixions to Veggie Tales to Herman Melville, there are no topics left untouched this time around.

Episodes covered:

39. The Seven Assassination Plan: Part 1

40. The Seven Assassination Plan: Part 2

41. Challenge from Underwater

42. Ambassador of the Nonmalt




Ultraseven #4: "Japan runs on Dancan"

We’ve finally reached the batch of episodes where David quit watching Ultraseven. Is it because of the quality of the show, or was it burnout? And why in the heck haven’t we seen more Crazygon?!

Episodes covered:

30. Glory for Whom?

31. The Flower Where the Devil Dwells

32. The Strolling Planet

33. The Invading Dead

34. The Vanishing City

35. Terror on the Moon

36. A Lethal 0.1 Seconds

37. The Stolen Ultra Eye




BONUS: "I can kiss girl Chris" feat. Rob of Tokyo Lives

A wild Bonus Episode appears! Chris and David choose Rob! Rob uses "Great discussion about mental health." Bonus Episode counters with "Neon Genesis Evangelion." It's super effective!

We had a blast talking with Rob. Now LISTEN to Rob.

CORRECTION: David brings up a book in the conversation called A Call to Christian Formation. He really meant to say the idea came from It's Not Your Turn by Heather Thompson Day...

Ultraseven #3: "Them's the grapes" feat. Rob of Tokyo Lives

This is what you get when Rob from Tokyo Lives joins the Belial Buds: Mustaches. Motorcycles. Mullets. Monsters. ultraMEN. Too MANY jokes about buttholes. M's the word. Also, I just came up with Belial Buds. This needs to be a shirt.

Episodes covered:

21. Pursue the Undersea Base

22. The Human Farm

23. Search for Tomorrow

24. Return to the North!

25. Showdown at 140 Degrees Below Zero

Ultraseven #2: "Live. Laugh. Ultra-Love."

It only took roughly twenty episode descriptions for me to lose my creative steam. Maybe before this one goes live, I’ll come back to it. Maybe not. But hey! We’re talking about the King Joe two parter!

Episodes covered:

11. Fly to Devil Mountain


13. The Man Who Came From V3

14. The Ultra Guard Goes West: Part 1

15. The Ultra Guard Goes West: Part 2

16. The Eye that Shines in the Darkness

BONUS: “Revenge of the Nerdist” feat. Kyle Anderson (Nerdist)

With Kyle being such a WHOge Dr. Who fan, it only made sense to talk about the series and have him try to sell David on trying out the franchise again. Conclusion: it worked. Also on the table: Godzilla vs. Kong, MCU (surprise!), and what it’s like being the geriatric editor for Nerdist.

Ultraseven #1: "Bowlman, my boy" Feat. Kyle Anderson (Nerdist)

In a world…with countless Ultra hosts…one man reigns supreme… His name? Dan Moroboshi. More importantly, Kyle Anderson, Nerdist’s senior editor, joins us for a rip-roaring good time. Seriously, we had a blast, and we hope you do as well.

BONUS: “Get in the Theater, Shinji!” feat. Alex of Monsters vs. Men

Nothing like having recording a podcast episode where by the time it releases, you (David) prove yourself wrong several times: The Lord of the Ring books ARE better than the movies and yes, I did rush out to see Black Widow. Also, we were right: Loki is great.

Topics discussed: confusing Gridman with Ultraman; Dragon Ball GT; Ultraman critiques; toku burnout; the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe; and pitching the Monsters vs...

Rise of Ultraman: “Oceans 11 Story Monster” Feat. Alex of Monsters vs Men

It's time to leave the (TV) Land of Light and dive into the world of Marvel’s Rise of Ultraman! Discussing this new take on the giant of light with us is Alex of Monsters vs. Men, and as always, hijinks ensue...

Ultraman Ginga S #2: “Misuzu Joined a Gang?!“

Wait, it's time to finish Ginga S already?! That's what happens when there are only sixteen episodes, I suppose. So the question is: does the show stick its landing, or do we find ourselves demanding (more)? And Chris watches his first Ultra-movie!

Episodes covered:

9. “A Life to Regain,” Director: Yoshikazu Ishii, Writer: Hisako Kurosawa
