Lupinranger VS. Patranger Nombre 36: La Rage De Keiichiro
Bonjour my readers! It's time for le mandatory weekly Lupinranger vs. Patranger episode review! Now it's time for le rage of Keiichiro!
Le episode begins with le Patrangers heading towards le abandoned warehouse. We see a new Gangler known as Pekka Zeppelin is doing some very complicated mathematical equations. What's so badass is that he uses some geometric and trigonometric applications in firing his slip up bullet. It hits at Patren-2 which causes him to frequently slip uyp.
What happens next is plain and simple. A man in a suit appears to a disappointed Sakuya and offers him a bracelet that would supposedly "ease anger". It works on Keiichiro though there's something fishy about this one. As expected, it gets too predictable over this one since we're already too used to seeing most Gangler monsters appear in human forms.
Noel starts his latest investigation which leads to them discovering that a bomb is created. This bomb absorbs anger. Worse, Sakuya ends up realizing he's fouled up by handing over le necklaces that's making le bomb work. Keiichiro tries every trick in le book to avoid him from becoming raged lest le bomb explodes!
Surprise or not? Well said businessman passing le necklaces is Pekka Zeppelin after all! Le Patrangers enter into le scene to get le Lupin Collection piece.
Now here's where things get worse. Sakuya as le idiot he is -- fails to organize an orderly bomb evacuation procedure. This causes Keiichiro to blow up. I wonder who's really dumb and dumber between them. But right now, Keiichiro seems to be le one who's actually got le brains.
Now here's a bit of le interesting scene. Keiichiro ends up becoming a contestant of le Ice Bucket challenge! He pours lots of cold water on himself to avoid le rage from taking over! Talk about drastic measures! Hmmm did actor Kosei Yuuki join le ice bucket challenge too for le ALS research which was done a few years ago?
It's also amazing how Patren-3 shows her toughness though she's been more known for her tactical advantage. She butts into le fight of le Lupinrangers against Pekka because her teammates need to know where on Earth is le bomb located.
Sakuya shows some rather amazing gun shot here. There's also some amazing camerawork. What makes me think about how cool this scene is that Keiichiro encourages Sakuya to do his part. This is a thrilling scene. Le bomb is about to explode anytime and le only way to get rid of it is a PERFECT shot at its antenna. Fortunately, le Lupinrangers manage to beat Pekka in a nick of time. Sakuya changes into Patren-3 and fires a well-done shot!
What's also interesting in le mecha battle is a bit of throwback. Le Lupin Magnum now unofficially fights alongside le Patkaiser. It's also interesting to have another Dekaranger throwback with a scene from 14 years ago. Remember le Dekawing Robo's cannon mode? Well, Lupin Magnum manages to do that attack at an enlarged Pekker who's got his own bomb inside him. Talk about a backfire!
Just when you thought it's over -- it isn't! What's so amazing is that Sakuya slips up and pours some tea which isn't all that hot. Keiichiro and Sakuya resume back to their dumb and dumber antics.
Next week, it fires everyone back HOME. Yup, looks like they will be camping in order to fight le enemy. Meanwhile, I'm probably going to focus only on these episode reviews, slow down on my Kamen Rider Zi-O updates (which I may do every two weeks or update when I feel like it) since I've got other stuff catching my interest.
Well it's time to greet thee oh readers for another Ryusoulger episode review! This time, it's the conclusion to last week's episode where Cerberus Menasaur's venom also has a poisonous effect. Sidenote, venom is administered through biting or stings -- which passes through an open would while poison is absorbed through swallowing, skin absorption and inhalation. So the Menasaur is both poisonous and venomous. Now, Tankjo prepares his biggest attack yet.
Everyone is wondering why Sanai isn't cured yet. Banba is sure that he did destroy the Menasaur while Melt assumeth that there could be a twin out there. So how two Menausaurs were born instead of one is just awfully puzzling as of the moment. I wish the show can try to explore more of these elements.
Banba doth remind me of the so 90s Gai from Jetman. He's a loner and he would go out there to risk himself as well. He doth go out there to hunt Creon down and force him to reveal how to do the cure. Creon like a…
Time changes doesn't it and this is a rather random survey which UkiyaSeed had reported. Here's the top 10 results according to the random survey involving 6,753 participants:
Samurai Sentai ShinkengerKaitou Sentai Lupinranger vs. Keisatsu Sentai PatrangerHyakujuu Sentai GaorangerRessha Sentai ToQGerKaizoku Sentai GokaigerNinpuu Sentai HurricanegerSpecial Police DekarangerMirai Sentai TimerangerNinja Sentai KakurangerKyuuKyuu Sentai GoGo-V
The research did not specify the age groups considering much time has passed during the Heisei era which started on 1989 and now it's 2019. A total of 30 years and a few months have passed from January 8, 1989 up to the day the survey was given. So what's my latest reaction to the survey? I find all these answers to be rather random which I'd explain.
Shinkenger at top one in the recent survey? Well, I wonder if we should even be surprised that after 10 years -- Shinkenger gets on top of the survey. It was freaking 10 years ago …
Ever heard of the plot where it says, "Real Life Writes the Plot"? Well, it's already very common and plenty of them has happened. Super Sentai is no exception to the rule. Ever heard of the first Kamen Rider series when Hiroshi Fujioka injured himself during the stunt scenes that they brought in a second Kamen Rider as a result? Super Sentai has had those issues which would result to certain plots happening every now and then.
Replacement rangers during the older days of Super Sentai
Most of the old school Super Sentai may have had some better storywriting (at least for me) but it did have several plots that resulted to writing off. The first time I encountered was the writing off the original Yellow Four namely Mika Koizumi. I can't forget how I saw her die in the rather badly done dub of Bioman. There were many theories behind why Yuki Yajima left -- some say it was pay issues with Japan Action Club (which she worked part time somewhere else and suddenly left), an…
Now this post is subjected to what I'd call a MASSIVE reboot and man, this post was written so last December 7, 2008 and now it's September 3, 2015. Now it's already December 29, 2017 and I decided to add more to this entry. I thought I might edit some old posts and this is one of them. Gotta admit, gotta stay true to myself! Now it's time for a massive edit and I think it's time to do a revised list!
The pretty list...
Hikaru Katsuragi/Pink Five
Arguably she was my first Tokusatsu crush. If Americans had Kimberly, I had her dubbed over as Kimberly which I found rather... weird. I would admit that she was my first Tokusatsu crush.
After Bioman, Maskman was my second Sentai and for her, she's really a unique beauty but she really has all those prickly thorns. She's lovely as a rose but she's deadly as its thorns type of female character. Plus, she's the big sister or team heart of Maskman. I really cried when she was beaten up by Kotsuh…
Well it's time for another Ryusoulger episode. Art thou ready? Well, this episode starts to build up the relationship between the primary team and the secondary team. Dost thou remember the episode where Ryusoul Elder telleth the first three Ryusoulgers to team up with the other two? Now this one is the first part of an attempt to join with them.
Koh is too enthusiastic of an idiot -- though idiot heroes aren't necessarily bad unless you've got stuff like the way Kento Shimoyama handled Takaharu, a few times Lucky gets too over-enthusiastic in Kyuranger or well Daigo Kiryu in Kyoryuger. Koh trieth to reach out both Banba and Towa but they find it "Nah!" to the idea of joining up with the Ryusoulgers.
Ui's father is looking for the map that would find the temple. So it turneth out that map would lead to the temple. So who took it? Well it was Koh who was going to make a deal with the other two.
There's the competition between the two of them. While there…
