Lupin VS Pat 30 Released!

Alt Title: Red versus Red

It's a double red episode, so it's pretty good. At first, I was thinking this was awesome. LupinRed's totally moving in and stealing the items out from Keiichirou, so of course his irrational hatred of the thieves is justified. I thought, this should have happened in an earlier episode.

But nooooo. Keiichirou trusts LupinRed enough to let him go and take the treasure with him. That completely undermines whatever it is you're doing with Keiichirou as a character!

That said, having Kairi be annoyed because Keiichirou reminds him of his brother and feeling conflicted about it is kind of nice. Great action. Love the fart jokes.

It was a pretty good episode all things considered. Keiichirous 180 on Lupin Red to trust him to save the day I didn't really buy, but I enjoyed the fact that despite stealing the collection piece, Kairi feels like a piece of shit. While he may be a better fighter, he's a worse human. Initially I was hoping that the two of them would form the mecha, but I liked how it turned out.

Also, Noel is a piece of shit. He's too smug for his own good without being enjoyable and the fact that he openly works with the thieves really kills any VS mentality that the show had.

Idk it makes sense to me. There is one thing that is more important to Keiichiro than anything else, and that is doing is job and protecting people.

It's not that he miraculously trusts LupinRed, it's that he HAS to trust LupinRed.

Question about the photo: is there something odd with her middle finger or is it just the position of the photo?

I think that emo-Kairi has some promise. Certainly a step up from smart aleck, smug, and lazy Kairi.

The rest of the pat-rangers did everything except for saying "we are not suspicious people" to Noel to make them look suspicious.

I don't know if the heroes are supposed to notice things like this, but Gauche doesn't like water and doesn't like foul smells. If the rangers dropped the safe in a tub of vile smelling liquid you could have an episode where Gauche shows up, stomps her feet, yells "Moe!!", and leaves without growing the monster. Then the next week she shows up with a clothespin on her nose, expands the monster and gives the heroes a "beda".

I wonder if the obviously suspicious acting was a way to prove Kairi is LupinRed in the minds of the Police while intentionally leaking info to Noel in such a obvious way.

Noel is still my favorite character on this show so far.

Allowing the Pats to actually come across as anything other than clumsy fools compared to the almighty, invincible Lups? They would never.

This episode is a bit of a mixed bag for me. I rather like that it was a deep Kari episode and that he feels like crap for not being as good a person as Keiichirou. However I feel like Keiichirou's characterization is flatter than a pancake. He's a damn good hero, and yet the writers never seem to be able to do something interesting with that trait. I mean yeah, he really hates Lupin Red, but as a person he doesn't have much else going on.

Meanwhile on the action front I loved the street fighting beatdown. It was actually surprisingly short, but I'll take it where I can get it. Conversely, fart jokes are so badly overused. Though I will admit I laughed at the idea of putting the collection piece back in the safe to stop the smell.:D

As an aside, I find it extremely interesting that Tsukuyomi is in the hero lineup for the SHT end bumper. Normally that's only transformed heroes, and furthermore I can't think of the last time any of the girls from KR were in it

When Splash is on Good Striker it sort of resembles G1 Defensor a bit. and it has a symbol on the same side of the chest armor too, which vaguely resembles an autobot symbol but im guessing is the Pat-badge. i was thinking maybe the Firetruck would have an Ambulance in place of drill, but a new head for Good Striker is cool too i guess.

but Umika made a good point on how some of the collection pieces were in the hands of regular unremarkable citizens. Noel saying it was to protect the power is ok, but couldnt Arsene been a ladies man? that seems more accurate to me since both were given to women or in possession there of.

I think what worked for me is that they went all in with that. Not only was it fart jokes, but exploding out the ass, constant barrage of nastiness, that also doubled as a plan to blow up the city.

Wasn't Misora in the SHT end bumper for Build?

She is with the cast. However the scene before that has all of the transformed heroes. Which by virtue of being transformed heroes, has always excluded the girls.
