Lupinranger VS Patoranger – Episodes 7 + 8 Review

I’m so happy this two-parter happened. These two episodes raised the tedious issue of secret identities in Lupinranger VS Patoranger and dealt with it perfectly in an entertaining way before resting the issue so it doesn’t need to ever come up again. I find it really boring when all you’re doing in a show is watching characters find out information you already know, so I was a little frustrated when Pato Pink, out of nowhere with no foreshadowing at all, looked at the Lupinrangers at the end of Episode 7Read More

Lupinranger VS Patoranger – Episodes 5 + 6 Review

For me, this two-parter is the show really stretching its wings and showing how good the two team premise can allow it to be. Rather than focusing on one character per episode, these two are both ensemble pieces that show character development through the rangers’ interactions with each other both in and out of battle. One of the best things the series is doing so far is the way the two teams meet each other in civilian form without the police recognising the thieves. The police aren’t actively looking forRead More

Lupinranger VS Patoranger – Episodes 3 + 4 Review

With the main premise of the show established, Episode 3 and 4 both do a good job of showing the potential this premise has. At first I was a little worried about how the interactions between the two teams were going to work, mainly due to the secret identity thing. Secret identities are rarely something Sentai bothers with in an meaningful way, but the first episodes of Lupin vs Pato set up the idea that the two teams will be meeting a lot in civilian form. For me, one ofRead More
