New thingsEdit

This series if the first to feature two different teams of heroes-the gentleman thief-themed Lupinrangers and the Police-themed Patrangers. They engage in a three-way battle against an alien criminal organization targeting Earth called the Gangler. It is also the first Super Sentai tv series to not have an ending theme like many of TV Asahi's other shows.

ScheduleEdit

Lupinranger vs Patranger was the last Super Sentai series to air entirely in the Heisei era, premiered on February 11, 2018, and on February 10, 2019, joining Kamen Rider Build and later Kamen Rider Zi-O, in the Super Hero Time line-up on TV Asahi affiliate stations.

StoryEdit

The Lupin Collection, a big collection of dangerous items acquired by the legendary gentleman thief Arsenè Lupin, is stolen by a crime syndicate known as the Gangler. However, they receive opposition from two Super Sentai teams: the Lupinrangers: Kairi Yano, Touma Yoimachi and Umika Hayami. They aim to steal back the collection to live up their namesake's reputation and save those they have lost. The others are Patrangers: Keiichiro Asaka, Sakuya Hikawa and Tsukasa Myoujin. They are tasked with uploading justice by getting back the collection and taking down the Gangler. A human drama unfolds that pits the opposing teams against each other as their late tale is woven. This is made more intricate by the Lupin Collection's mysterious origins and its contributor Noël Takao. He aids the two teams as their fourth member in the hopes of uniting them against the Gangler for his own agenda. After the Gangler are defeated, the Patrangers learn the Lupinrangers' identities and motives while Noël still works to unite the two Super Sentai teams into one.
