Okay, this will be a rather short pairing talk, about Maskman. I'm sure there are a lot who can expand this, but for now, I'll just nail it down to one pairing.
The show didn't give them any chemistry at all.
Of course Maskman being a show about 'Star Crossed Lovers' means Takeru will get his time a lot with Mio/Iyal, the official couple of the show. But, unlike Shinkenger, which has the fan pairing Takeru/Mako, which is also supported that they spend time quite close together... This is not the case of Maskman. Takeru and Momoko has no episodes where it's exactly the two of them together. Momoko did have episodes that shares with other people, but they are mostly with Haruka; and one episode with Akira. No Takeru-Momoko in sight.
So, pretty much, this pairing has no basis given by the show, leaving it to only fan interpretation. And I keep wondering why it garners a lot of shippers. It has no basis... but I like this pairing, damn it!
Well, that's all I gotta say about this Maskman pairing. Stay tuned, maybe next time there will be more Maskman pairing talk in the future.
