No matter who it is, i'm sure it will be a great suprise. In a cops vs thiefs show, you need a good plotwist that make you go "WOW" XD

Keiichiro Will be eating a ton of snickers if Hilltop is a “LupinRanger conspirator”.

Add the music from this episode, and likely this entire season, to the freeform jazz playlist next to Bloody Storm, because that was some snazzy stuff we haven't had since Geki Violet's theme.

Also Keiichiro, you're not you when you're hungry.

Apparently, the Lupin Collection will feature items that bring past seasons in mind. Already, we have the Die, which is supposed to be a nod to Zyuohger's cube. Can't wait to see what else they have in mind.

And of course, I'm curious if Saban and Nick will turn this into Daddy Issues 4 featuring Cops and Robbers.

I’m thinking Kogures master will be a new character and become X down the line. His master has shut himself off from everyone due to the collection being stolen by the gangler and X is used to symbolize mysterious figures, unsolved situations etc. They pretty much go hand in hand. His master becomes X to partner with the Lupinranger and reclaim the Lupin Collection and partner with the patranger wasn’t to take down the gangler all while keeping his identity secret due to his shame. I can’t see Hilltop giving the patranger their powers when they ultimately want to apprehend the Lupinranger but I do think he’ll have a signicant roleX maybe before he was commissioner he was the Lupin heads security or something.
I could see Hilltop becoming Zerogou. If X is the Lupin Head, I could see him using Lupin X a bit more than Patren X as he is Arsenes descendent.
it’s going to be interesting.

Yeah, I'm actually not sure if Hilltop being X will fit, even though that scenario would be AWESOME. #0 just screams Mentor Ranger, kinda like Kruger with his 100. If Hilltop is going to be X, there has to be a reason why he turned to a police officer or something. The #0 and Black dichotomy for both teams also feels like Hilltop would have sort of a rivalry.

While Hilltop definitely does fit Zerogo better, that's dependent upon what the deal is with the Changers. Also, Black is matched up with Minus Ichigo, not Zerogo.

Zerogo gives the heroic sounds in the Changer; whereas Black and Minus give the warped, evil sounds.

I could definitely see Zerogo being something Japanese-inspired, if it's Hilltop, to go with his Japanophile character.

I think it could fit if X was more of a anti-hero like Timefire. Like if he come on the scene as more of a rival to both teams like if he began stealing the Lupin collection and started to defeat the Gangler. rendering both the Patoranfer and the Lupinranger useless.


Also one thing I’ve noticed from looking at both LupinKaiser and PatorenKaiser is that both look oddly similar to the robots that were in BigO. Like both have the simple and slim design that focuses heavily on their occupation/role.

Kogure's master might be Hilltop.
Maybe but they are definitely working together. They both just happen to have the technology both teams use? It's pretty obvious there's a connection but the master could also be a new character.

It took me a while to realize, but Keiichiro looks very familiar. Then I looked at the actor's name, and it's Yuuki Kousei, brother of Endo Kousei, one of the members of Gaki no Tsukai. The way they both say "umai" (tasty) is very similar, and that's what tipped me off.

He should be in a snicker commercial.

Watched episode 1 last night. It's a pretty slick show. Loving the creative camerawork during action scenes. Even though I've never played Persona, I do get that vibe from the Lupinrangers. They had a very nice henshin sequence. Hope the Patrangers get something just as cool.

Keiichiro hears people praising something he doesn't like (the Lupinranger) and it kills him inside, I can relate to this. With that said, it's pretty funny to see him getting all worked up like that.

This show was set up with the old trope "good outlaws unfairly chased by the police" in mind, except they somehow want to make the police side an "equal". How to achieve that without making the other side look bad? (unless they make BOTH sides look bad for getting on each other's way and not working together when needed - a lesson both teams would need to learn the hard way)

Kairi/Lupin the 3rd
Tooma/Jigen
Umika/Fujiko
Patranger/Zinigata
Asaka is trying so hard being Zinigata that he's close to being unlikable.
Unless Umika starts betraying the team and becomes a proper femme fatale, she isn’t a good analogue to Fujiko. Fujiko is seductive, manipulative and two faced. Umika definitely doesn’t seem like any of those things, she’s more lighthearted and playful.

While Lupin III is indeed the most popular phantom thief story, it's not the only one. For a more kid-focused comparison, there's stuff like Kaitou Joker, which is probably closer to the tone LuPat is going for.

I really hope they wouldn't make Hilltop Black...

Why? It’s not like having a black actor be a black ranger is inherently racist.
