THIS WEEK: After some judicious fast-forwarding, we’re leading up to the finale of Android Kikaider. This week, the gang tackles the introduction to Jiro’s iconic rival, Hakaider! In addition, we discuss what we like (and dislike) about Kikaider so far; DARK needs money; we deal with miscommunications abound; we discuss insanity pleas, property law, and Star Trek: The Next Generation; Alexa completely annihilates our outro; and Kikaider just has TOO MUCH HIGH POWER, MAN.
