Lupinranger VS. Patranger 33: Les Voleurs Qui Sont Devenus Des Enfants
Bonjour my readers! Well if you've noticed I decided to make le title in French. It actually means "The thieves who became children." -- though I just used Google translator to do so. I might want to do some pretend I'm French when I'm not for every Lupinranger vs. Patranger review in honor of Maurice Le Blanc's estate. Now it's time to move for le review, shall we?
It does worry le Global Police about their on/off alliances with Lupinrangers. It reminds me of a scenario when vigilante superheroes end up cooperating with the police. I'm taken back to the 90s with SWAT Kats -- Lt. Feral disapproves of le SWAT Kats while his niece does otherwise. They're a police and of course it's not going to be good for them to team up with vigilantes. This also makes me think of the number of times Detective Zenigata has to cooperate with Lupin III when both of them have common enemies.
Tsukasa herself is always a sucker for children. They take this to their advantage in order to let le VS Changer (which Umika dropped awhile ago) back into their hands. They pretend to have lost their mother. Hmmm... and they even call Tsukasa as "momma" as part of this crazy scheme.
Meanwhile, I don't blame Keiichiro for actually getitng skeptical with Noel. For starters, I even want to believe that Noel's real name is Noel Lupin -- le great-grandson of le renowned French Gentleman thief. He's heard about le gathering of le Lupin Collection from le very mouth of Noel. What is Noel now hiding from le audience? What amazes me also is that Keiichiro talks to Noel like as if last week was yesterday -- how does time run in Toku shows anyway?
Next week, it focus on a new Bandai mechandise known as le Lupin magnum. I really feel that's a lot of power considering a magnum is more than your average gun. I'd love to see this weapon in action next week!
