Thief Sentai Lupinranger VS Police Sentai Patranger Wrap Up

The dials have been spun and the triggers pulled as we come to the end of another Super Sentai for the second time in a month! As always, the usual shoutouts are in order to Over-Time for the subs and to Howling_Snail for the BD sources!


For a franchise that seems to be throwing just about anything they can at the wall to see what sticks, doing two opposing teams like this was an interesting experiment. Whether or not it was a success is another story, but I will say it defied my expectations by never actually integrating the teams to the very end.


This will probably be just about the end of our involvement with LuPat, although I do have the BD for the movie, and there is a Kyuranger teamup coming out in the future, so should a need/opportunity arise to do my own versions, I’ll do them.


Batch-wise, I’ll be addressing this when I return from Anime Expo and will likely release it alongside the Kyoryuger batch. Like that batch, I have some extras that need to be encoded, so it won’t be immediately after I return. There will be a few v2s but I don’t believe there was anything too major.


Predictably, the wrap up has to end with what’s next and while the next catalog Sentai release was detailed in the Kyoryuger wrap up (Akibaranger Season 2 if you missed it), for the quarterly releases, it’s usually a bit more predictable, which is why it should come as no surprise that we’ll be right back here in a couple of weeks to release the Super Sentai Strongest Battle miniseries!


…OK, so you may not have expected that, but as the BD will be out on July 10th, we’ll be giving that a release, so look for that in mid-July!

  1. When you do Rider Time: Shinobi, Rider Time: Ryuki, and Super Sentai Strongest Battle, please don’t forget to give them progress bars under Active Projects in the side bar. Thanks.


    Also, won’t Super Sentai Strongest Battle also have a Director’s Cut with all the episodes in a movie?

    1. I doubt those will get progress bars since they’re short enough to be one-and-done releases. Strongest Battle does have a DC and it is my intention to release that as well.

  2. I’m really curious about the general lack of releases for the recent Sentai and Kamen Rider movies, I’ve not found many subbers doing them anymore (bar TV-Nihon, but that hard sub is a pain sometimes). Is there any reason for it out of curiousity, since you mention it here briefly? Sorry this is on an old post but it seemed be most relevant to ask this on XP

    1. It’s up to the subbing groups really. Myself and Howling_Snail get the Rider and Sentai movie BDs, and Gust usually encodes raws from them, but whether the sub groups have the time and interest in subbing them is another story.
