We finally got the first footage of 2018's Super Sentai series, and we can't wait to see more.
The new preview for Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patoranger shows the first footage of the Lupinranger team in action. The three Lupinrangers are making their way through the streets until they're cut off by the Patorangers, starting a firefight between the two groups (via Toku Nation).
Also glanced in the preview is what appears to be the Gangler Crime Syndicate, as well as a glimpse at the various vehicles the two teams will be using throughout the series.
You can view the new preview above.
The new series will feature a police vs thieves theme with the Lupinrangers coming into conflict with the law enforcement Patorangers, and will reportedly have one Ranger going in-between.
The two teams will have intertwined stories for the first half of the season (with each one getting the spotlight every other week) and if previous rumors are to be believed, but then will converge into one large story arc by season's end. This will be presumably when they form one team against the Gangler Crime Syndicate, but none of that has been confirmed.
Toei's Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patoranger is the series' 42nd season and will be premiering on TV-Asahi on February 11, 2018.
