Well between this and the Geed movie my pants have officially exploded.

Maybe Netflix can pick this up and more folks can get into Tokusatsu? I'm pretty sure Crunchyroll will pick this up.

So...if I'm understanding this right, there's two teams in one series - 3 members in each and they're against each other.

Sounds interesting nonetheless.

Also sounds like Toei is trying to garner a ratings boost. But it does sound super interesting and as always I look forward to it. Super Sentai rarely disappoints nowadays. (At least for me anyway) Also, bring on the "Lupin the 3rd!" Ranger memes people!

Thanks for sharing the pictures as always @lorddemolatron :thumbsup:

I am not liking the suits based on these still images. Reminds me to much of the "Gransazers" suits but with a bubble gum filter slapped onto the suits. But best to reserve judgment at this point. The giant robots give me a "Bull Rider Megazord" vibe and a "Deka Robo" vibe, I dig it.

The movie Masked Rider looks ugly, I'll wait to see it in motion because yuck.

Got to admit, I've never really been a fan of that. It always felt like an intrusion for the sake of advertisement IMO.

Oh you mean the "Toei way?" If they can push in a new Rider or a new toy best believe they will. But the new Rider's design is just blah right now.

I will say, the only time I liked it was retroactively when Shotaro referenced back to OOO's cameo in his film, during a later crossover film.

Shotaro: "Eiji, do you remember what you said when we first met? 'Riders always help each other out'. So go on, we'll handle this."

That was so heartwarming. <3

If that indeed is Build's "SS3 form" then it looks to much like Night Rogue. Meaning less of personal identity and more suit recolors with slight reworkings. (But I like Night Rogue's design so I'm ok with that) Damn it @Lain Must you remind me of the awesome-ness that is W? Must you? OOO had good characters but a story on par with Kingdom Hearts, nonsense.

Well I watched the final episode of Geed and well... I'm heart broken now. Like with every Toku show I always feel bad when it ends because I get attached to the characters. Not seeing Riku, Laiha, Leito, and the rest every week is going to be strange.
It is like going 2 restaurant and always seeing so and so there. Then when they aren't there you feel lost and confused. Also I highly doubt you know who is actually gone. Highly doubt it.

The latest issue of Televi-kun magazine has unveiled more plot details and images for the Kaito Sentai Lupinranger vs. Keisatsu Sentai Patranger!



It was previously that the series will center around the Lupin Collection and how the two teams will handle this situation. That being said, the magazine revealed that this collection was gathered by the legendary thief himself, Arsène Lupin. This treasure of mysterious power, which is said that it can destroy the world was stolen by Gangler and it is the duty of the Phantom Thieves Lupinranger to retrieve it.

That is also the duty of the Police Squad Patoranger. Aside from securing said treasure, they will also arrest the villains responsible, which caused them to butt heads with the Lupinrangers! With both teams having the same goal, how can these two teams work together?!















Finally, here are some more images of the arsenal of both teams. Both teams use the VS Changer and a VS Vehicle to transform. The Lupinrangers use the Dial Fighters as their mecha and transformation item while the Patorangers use the Trigger Machines for the same purpose. Both teams have their respective side weapons, for the Lupinrangers, it's the Lupin Sword while the Patorangers, it's the Pat Megabo.

Kaito Sentai Lupinranger vs. Keisatsu Sentai Patranger is to premiere on February 11, 2018, replacing Uchu Sentai Kyuranger in TV-Asahi's Superhero Time block at 9:30am.

Super Sentai cops and robbers basically. So that means more possible Dekaranger and Space Sheriff cameos... I am so okay with that!
