The cast of Sentai’s upcoming season, Lupinranger vs. Patoranger, has been revealed!
In the photos above, fans can check out their first look at the cast for both teams, each featuring three Rangers.
The Lupinranger team will star the below Rangers, in addition to a mysterious butler character named Kogure (portrayed by Yoichi Nukumizu).
Red Ranger – Yano Kairi (portrayed by Asahi Itou)
Blue Ranger – Yoimachi Tooma (portrayed by Shogou Hama)
Yellow Ranger – Hayami Umika (portrayed by Haruka Kudo)
The Patoranger team will star the below Rangers.
Red Ranger – Asaka Keiichrio (portrayed by Kousei Yuuki)
Green Ranger – Hikawa Sakuyo (portrayed by Ryo Yokoyama)
Pink Ranger – Myoujin Tsukasa (portrayed by Kazusa Okuyama)
The season will feature two sets of Ranger teams, based on a cops and robbers theme. This will mark Toei’s second attempt at a police-themed season since Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger, which went on to become Power Rangers S.P.D. in its overseas adaption.
Lupinranger will have an air-based Zord/Mecha theme, while Patoranger will have a ground-based Zord/Mecha theme.
The season’s storyline will follow the Lupin Collection, powerful items with the ability to either save or destroy the human race. The Lupinrangers will fight to regain their historic collection, while the Patorangers will fight for justice, sometimes leading to the two sides colliding, while other times leafing to the two sides teaming up. Together, they will join an evil enemy force known as the Gangler in a three-way struggle for Earth’s survival.
Should Lupinranger vs. Patoranger be adapted overseas into a season of Power Rangers, it would likely have to wait until 2021 – should Saban Brands decide to adapt it at all.
Lupinranger vs. Patoranger will premiere in Japan on February 11, 2018.
