THIS WEEK: We say farewell to our favorite grandpa squid-devil-monster-wizard-dracula. At the same time, we might get a real glimpse of Great Leader? Or we might not. In addition: Takeshi Hongo is a strong male protagonist; we meet the tiniest, most adorable cosplayer ever; we compare the leadership styles of each Shocker lieutenant; Sven desperately tries to explain radio tower interference; we invoke a tokusatsu fan remedy for dispelling bad luck; Shocker’s monsters get a training montage of their own; and Fujioka is suspiciously absent from his own show once again.
