Lupinranger VS. Patranger Nombre 22: Love Comes Naturally?!
Bonjour readers! It's time for another episode of Lupinranger vs. Patranger. I think I'm somewhat getting some mixed feelings on how I will be doing weekly episodes. First, I tried to copy Ukiyaseed's style (though he's been more into news updates now) then I want to do the Sentai Bandicoot's style of reviewing. Oh well... I hope I can find my own style between the two. Now moving forward to the "love story" of Umika and Sakuya.
Nombre 7 when Umika agrees to go out on a date with Sakuya. Is it me or is it a cliche in Tokusatsu where a monster interrupts a date? Well it does happen in superhero shows a lot. It's almost like Peter Parker goes out on a date with Mary Jane BUT he must fight off villains as Spiderman. Also, Umika is bound NEVER to tell anyone that she's Lupin Yellow which causes more trouble for her. So what's up with why some Super Sentai teams can't tell anyone they are heroes in spandex (not spandex) while others can? Hmmm... these plot devices are somewhat enjoyable in their own way.
Yup, they allow themselves to be captured. When Patren-2 isn't enough when we have Patren-X who shows up and blasts the inner ones. IMHO, I was expecting to have Umika unmasked, revealed and Sakuya would promise to keep her identity from the others. It could have been an opportunity to let the shipping go forward. Are we just going to be stuck on shipping? Anyway, they save le people who were caught inside le jar. Both Lupin Red and Lupin Blue get le Lupin Collection (now my mind is numb, what easter egg is it?).
Next episode -- well I'm quite interested. It's a cooking battle! Yup, I want to get my taste buds rolling. Meanwhile, I just need to sit back, wait and resume with real life activities. Hmmm... maybe I could start going to a French restaurant before reviewing the next episode? Adieu!
