Lupinranger VS. Patranger 20: Lupin-X/Patren-X Arrives
A new mysterious character arrives and it's one that makes me think, "Is this le guy that will eventually unite both le opposing rival teams, reunite le Lupin Collection together AND make both teams work together to save le world?" Looks like it's him and here's Noel Takao. Maybe, Noel Takao isn't really his real name -- maybe it's really Noel Lupin! But that's just my speculation!
Le episode begins with a mysterious cloaked figure entering into some compartment. It's from le fine city of Paris! Fine wine, crepes -- he leaves all le French for Japanese. So what's a Japanese guy doing in France in here? I'd love to pretend that he's been part of le new Winspector branch in France but that's just impossible.
The mysterious man or not -- Noel Takao -- he finally shows up at le square and proves he's Lupin-X. He steals everything in a blink of an eye and returns everyone's smartphones. He gets arrested and this leads to a series of hilarious events. He knows who le Lupinrangers are and gives a card to Kairi. Le Lupinrangers are trying to escape while Tooma plans to break Noel out of jail.
Noel Takao has two modes. He reveals his Patren-X mode which wows the Lupinrangers. Both teams are puzzled to just who is this guy siding with? Why is he helping both sides? Is there some kind of aim to bring both teams together? I hope so. Just looking at the magazine scans where there's going to be a combination using both team's vehicles makes me think that both teams need to put their differences aside -- if they want to destroy le Gangler once and for all!
