Spin the dials, chase you up, and prepare for the heist of a lifetime!

They're definitely going for a two-parter with this premiere. But what a premiere it was. Lupin had most of the focus, though I'm okay with what we saw of the Pats. Hilltop and Jimmy are fine, but really, Team Lupin stole the show here. Looking forward to seeing what comes next. The camerawork in particular was really good.

How does Toei expect people to root for the Patos when the Lupins steal the very first episode?

This is an excellent start but I will wait until subbed version is out so I can understand the whole episode.

The Henshin! GAH IT WAS SO GORGEOUS! I love everything about this first episode! The Gangler remind me of a mafia (which they probably are)

So they use their dial fighters to literally unlock safes lol.
Action choreography and camera work is one of the best I have seen from anything lol. They're so agile and the camera work is so damn good.

That was an awesome first episode from what I saw. The Lupinrangers kick so much ass it's hard not to be cheering them on. They made a hell of a first appearance. The Patrangers were also cool, but we didn't see much of them in action. The transformation sequences were awesome. (Was it just me or was Lupinranger's a little Gokaiger-like? Just a little.)

Anyways, so far all the characters seem good. The villains all look awesome.
Can't say much more until I see subs, but honestly, so far so good.

That's probably why episode 3 I think has the Lupins steal their changers so viewers know they're not 100% good (I think)

They should've at least given the Patos the full henshin and roll call to end the episode. But from the looks of the next preview, more Lupin focus and the Patos get jobbed by the Lupins.


Anyway, as far as first episodes go, this was INFINITELY better than Kyurangers and I already like these Reds more than Lucky.

That henshin was just glorious. And that camera work during the Lupin fight outside? So damn good... Anyway, it was a really strong start to the show. I'm getting a good feeling from this one.

What a debut! Just missed the opening sequence (hope/probably we gonna get next episode) and a ending theme/sequence (this one tho we knew we wouldnt have). Other than that, for now, I have only good things to say. As we saw from the promos, the series has tone more towards Kamen Rider with adds a good contrast with other sentai series and totally fits the theme of the series..

A few things that stood out for me:

- Great actions scenes, just great.
- Great BGMs all around

- Really liked the fact the villains lives in a big mansion, giving a banquet like we would see from big gangs on movies instead of be the overdone space invaders aboard their spaceships.

- Nice the references to Arsne Lupin
- Loved Lupinranger morphin sequence (reminds Gokaiger) and their full apresentation.

Yes, cant wait for more/see subbed.

Easily the best opening episode in recent years, perhaps since Go-Busters.

Hopefully the Patranger get a bit more time to shine in the coming episodes, though, because as of now they feel like a tagged on addition as opposed to an equally important team.

Did anyone notice the commercial talking about the shiny trigger machine and Dial fighters. Well it had something to do with chocolate and didnt one of the rumored sounds say something about chocolate.

What a good start..this show gonna be interesting

As expected the Lupins gonna steal the first episode but at least the Pats get some decent screentime. From what I seen so far the Lupins are a fun bunch mainly Umika and Kairi. I liked how sailormoon-ish the Lupin's henshin sequence are mainly the ribbons lol and Love their introductory team pose scene.

Kinda sad that Pats doesn't get a full henshin sequence yet maybe they reserved it for next episode hoping next episode gonna focus more on the Pats side, Keiichiro hotbloodedness can be overbearing at times but it seems like they gonna make his hotbloodedness a gag scene and I had a feeling that Onoree LupinRangers!!! gonna be the new Yoshaa Luckyy!!

With that said lupinrangers win this episode
Lupins: 1 vs Pats: 0

Oh yea about Keiichiro's hotbloodedness, did we see Tsukasa feed him chocolate to calm him down or something?

Really strong start. This was more of Lupinranger episode, and the show nailed the Phantom Theif style so well. I'm a sucker for the high energy Jazz feel of these kinds of stories. Lupin Red is the only one I'm not sure of right now. His acting feels so-so, maybe he'll grow into it, but I wanted an actor with a little more charisma.
