In case you missed it, some big news regarding next year’s Super Sentai show’s next year came out. Since then, the rumor mill’s begun churning.
Some unconfirmed rumors have appeared on Tokuinsider via J-Hero. Do note that at the time of this write-up, nothing has been confirmed by Toei or any official channels. So until we hear otherwise from them, please take this with an injection of salt. None the less, the rumors are as follows:
-Both Patoranger and Lupinranger will count as the 42nd Sentai.
-The two shows are both separate works, and the same show, with intersecting storylines that take place in the same world. The shows will air alternately from week to week, and when each reaches episode 20, the show will become one solidified story.
-The toy line will essentially be separate until this joining happens, with the 4th quarter toys able to combine and interact.
-One of the members of Lupinranger is actually an undercover spy for Patoranger. It is likely this cast member will be prominently featured on both shows.
Again, none of this has been 100% confirmed by Toei or another official channel. These rumors could likely be fake, so do take them with a grain of salt until we hear from a more reliable and official source.
