These two episodes, while still being enjoyable to watch, feel like a bit of a step down for the show. The unique set-up of Lupinranger VS Patoranger has kept the series fresh and exciting up to now, but these episodes felt like they could have come from any Sentai show. Episode 12 in particular had an entirely predictable plot. As soon as we were introduced to a character who wanted to go fast and a macguffin that makes people go fast, the whole episode became boring. Every beat is hitRead More

As much as I like the Patorangers and their supporting cast, I can’t help but love the Lupinrangers more. Their stories are so much deeper, as is made clear by these two episodes. Not only do we meet Zamigo in these episodes, giving us a strong memorable Lupinranger-centric arch-nemesis, but the main focus of the two-parter is on what would happen if the Lupinrangers ever failed to get a collection piece. It’s refreshing to have a Super Sentai team who aren’t just trying to defeat the monsters, but are actuallyRead More
