Consider supporting us on Patreon so we can continue providing quality tokusatsu news coverage.


For the first time in Sentai history, the story will be lead by two different teams.


The motif this time is two-fold, with the Lupinranger being “kaito” or “phantom thief” while the Patorangers are police officers. This is the first time in Super Sentai history two teams are active at the same time. Sometimes clashing, sometimes working together, the two teams will have their own agenda. The Lupinranger fight to regain an important person lost in the past while the Patoranger, who are part of the International Special Police, fight for justice and an ideal future. The story is centered around the Lupin Collection, a collection of items left behind by Arsene Lupin. It is said the items can enable the prosperity of the human race or its total destruction. A three-way struggle against the enemy Gangler now begins.

Each Sentai has a red, serving as leader. LupinRed, a stylish man who hides under the guise of an ordinary person, leads LupinBlue and LupinYellow. Patoren#1, who leads the green Patoren#2 and the pink Patoren#3, is a serious police officer aiming for a crime rate of zero.

While the Kamen Rider series has theme of heroes often clashing in battle, Sentai has generally been “Rangers of Justice” vs “Organizations of Evil”. This while be the first time in the over 40 years of the Super Sentai series that these structures are challenged. A drama for the attention of tokusatsu fans has begun.

Junko Komura, who previously wrote Kamen Rider Wizard and Dobutsu Sentai Zyuohger, will be head script writer. Takaaki Utsunomiya, head producer of Kamen Rider Wizard, Ressha Sentai ToQger, and Zyuohger, returns as producer. Sasaki Motoi, chief producer on Kamen Rider Ghost, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, Kamen Rider Build, and Uchu Sentai Kyuranger returns as chief producer. Kyuranger head director Teruaki Sugihara serves as head director once again. Former long-time red suit actor Hirofumi Fukuzawa stays on as action director while Samurai Sentai Shinkenger composer Hiroshi Takagi returns to compose the show’s music.

Kaito Sentai Lupinranger vs Keisatsu Sentai Patoranger begins February 11th at 9:30 AM on TV Asahi.
