Another PatRan Nigou released

Post by takenoko » Tue Nov 06, 2018 11:17 am

Wiki

Looks like this was brought to you by the same guys as the Ultimate Combination. Didn't really feel as if this was as successful a short.

For one thing, despite Nigou being in the name, Sakuya really doesn't get much of a moment to shine. He just backs up Kei at one point while Tsukasa mysteriously just fucks off from the spotlight. It's a weird scene that just makes the Pat dynamic feel like a mess.

It probably doesn't help that the main focus was on another guy playing Nigou and his relationship with Kei. Probably would have been better if it were focused on Sakuya trying to live up to the legacy of the original Nigou, and maybe he could have done something to help Kei figure out to fight music with music. Kei running off to meditate a solution is alright, but Sentai stories are best when the group work together.

Another minus for the short is that it makes Kei kind of a bad leader. Like if I were in charge, I'd have Tsukasa lead the group. Kei's not charismatic or very smart, and he's got a short temper. Kei's best points are when he's like a big brother for Kairi or an idealistic kid trying to look up to the cop from his past. He's best when he's trying to protect the citizens, but a lot of the time he exists just to get in the way of the Lupins.

This special should've given Sakuya a good amount of character development. Overall, it's eh.

The Collection Piece of this Special is HurricaneBlue's Sonic Megaphone from Hurricaneger.
One more announcement of a Tezuka manga getting adapted for small/big screens, I'll fund myself a trip to Japan to watch them.

Takenoko, I agree with you.... it needed to be a more team dynamic... while Tsukasa is off screen most of the time. But it was good to see their frustrations in the beginning of not being able to stop the Ganglars that appear but only remove citizens from danger... and also being not well equipped to do their jobs. I gives a base of how Kei goes from a serious officer that want to protect... To the Kei that is the explosive hot head that we all know.

I was sad of the results of Sakuya's ever present over embellishing (tale telling) and seeing that Satoru was hearing it all... and then left.

Satoru should come back as a villain for revenge on Sakuya... haha

I thought it was interesting enough. Despite being called Another Nigou, it was clearly meant to focus on Kei first and foremost, with Sakuya as a secondary focus. And it worked well in that respect. Kei didn't stop being excitable, but we learned a bit about how he used to be even worse, and how a tragedy helped him improve himself. And this episode has done a better job than any of the regular episodes of reinforcing Sakyua's ideals as a cop.

Not worth it when we'll just re-release when the blu-ray comes out. Enjoy the typos, become one with them!
