Lupinranger VS Patoranger – Episode 21 Review

Episode 21 is the second part of Noel’s introduction, and so far he seems like a perfect ‘sixth’ ranger. Not only do I love his suit design and mecha, but his inclusion to the series complicates the formula in interesting ways and gives us a little more insight into Lupinranger VS Patoranger‘s lore. This episode doesn’t touch on it in much detail but with Noel being the creator of some of the rangers’ gear and having a previous relationship with Kogure, there’s plenty of room for the show to getRead More

Lupinranger VS Patoranger – Episode 20 Review

The star of this episode is clearly Noel and his two ranger forms. Lupinranger VS Patoranger has done incredibly well so far with its unique two-team premise, and the introduction of a new character who’s part of both teams takes it to a new level. We first see him as Lupin X, which is probably my favourite form of the two. I’ve always preferred the Lupinrangers to the Patorangers, although I like the designs and personalities of both. Part of why I like his Lupinranger form so much is theRead More
