    Guess who's finally back?! This week: The ice man returns! Is it suspicious that the Ganglers, phantom thieves and Global Police all receive their intel at the exact same time? Well that Iselob suit is near-pristine so I imagine that will get repainted for another appearance. It's cool that...

    Lupinranger VS Patranger, Episode 32: "A Challenge To A Duel"

    Coming soon from Premium Bandai... This week (really): The Go-Buster's binoculars must be really fearsome, I'm honestly surprised that Noel didn't issue his challenge by slapping Keiichiro with his glove, having issued the challenge because he believes Keiichiro will not be convinced with words...

    Lupinranger VS Patranger, Episode 31: "The Repentant Gangler"

    Insert Robin Hood reference This week: it's been years since they've done a "ranger's dad shows up and doesn't approve" plot!

    Lupinranger VS Patranger, Episode 27: "Dancing Commands"

    Well hello there, Dragon Dagger. At last you shall be mine! This week: Aerobics class dance routines. In leotards. With middle aged backing dancers. I get that they wanted to counterbalance the misery of the episode of Build that aired right beforehand but this feels like tonal backlash. Oh...
