Akane thinks she’s figured out who Gridman is — and in hopes of confirming her suspicions, she joins Rikka on the most relatable group date ever! Will she learn Yuta’s secret? Can Rikka get this show past the Bechdel test despite how determined Akane is to talk about a boy? And wait, are all those creepy college boys… Jetfires? This week we’re joined by our buddy @KeliraTelian for episode 4 of SSSS.Gridman, “Suspicion”!
After Utsumi suggests the kaiju might really be people, Gridman hesitates when the next one he fights actually speaks — and that gives the kaiju an opening to defeat him! Is he gone for good? Will Yuta cease to exist like their dead classmates? Can Calibur’s friends help? And… wait, did they say they were from the junior high school? This week we’re joined by Big Name Tokusatsu Fan Mach Dent from Vintage Henshin and Kamen Ramen Studios as we watch SSSS.Gridman episode 3, “Defeat”!
On the surface it seems like the fight between Gridman and the kaiju never happened, but Yuta, Utsumi, and Rikka soon discover that their classmates who were killed in the attack are still gone — and as far as anyone else knows, they died years ago! Can they find more answers before having to defend the city and the school from another monster? Can the adorkable weirdo Samurai Caliber help with more than upgrading Junk’s sound card? How do you open Ramune? If you die in the game, do you die for real? Join the Stasis Pod crew for SSSS.Gridman episode 2, “Restoration”!
A boy with amnesia. An old computer that calls to him as a forgotten hero named Gridman. Conveniently absent parents. Strange, seemingly unfinished kaiju raining destruction on his neighborhood. Why does this all seem so familiar — in ways that have nothing to do with Tim Curry? Why are we joined for our premire episode by Trent Troop, one of the creators of Transformers: Shattered Glass (as well as Isle of Rangoon and Prize Inside)? Why is SSSS.Gridman like this? Join the Stasis Pod crew as we launch the Superhuman Samurai Syber Pod with episode 1: “Awakening”!
