Pretty big news I think! The thing that's most interesting to me is it will be closer to the manga, which was a bit more abstract art wise and certainly sexier!

New Lupin III TV Anime's Staff, Cast, Title Revealed (Updated)

posted on 2012-03-07 17:26 EST

A new Lupin III television anime series will air starting in April for the first time in 27 years. The new series, titled Lupin the Third ~Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna (Lupin III - The Woman Called Fujiko Mine), will air on NTV starting on April 4 at 1:29 a.m.

Sayo Yamamoto (Michiko to Hatchin) will direct the 13 episode series, making her the first female director on the Lupin III series. Redline director Takeshi Koike will serve as animation director and character designer, and AnoHana's Mari Okada will handle the series composition. Kanichi Kurita will play Lupin, Kiyoshi Kobayashi will play Daisuke Jigen, Daisuke Namikawa will play Goemon Ishikawa, Miyuki Sawashiro will play Fujiko Mine, and Kouichi Yamadera will play Inspector Zenigata.

Last October, the voice cast for the Lupin III anime franchise changed for the first time in 16 years. The voice cast for Lupin the Third ~Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna is reflecting that change.

The series revolves around the character of Fujiko Mine, depicting her and the rest of the Lupin III cast during their younger days. The series will reportedly capture the "sensuality" present in Monkey Punch's original Lupin III manga in its "daring interpretation" of the franchise.

A NTV television ad announced last April that a "new television series of Lupin III" would air last fall. However, NTV then told ANN that the new Lupin III TV project would be a special, Lupin III: Chi no Kokuin Eien no Mermaid, which would eventually air last December.

Last week, TOHO Cinemas' announcement for a 40th anniversary Lupin III anime event listed a promotional video for a "new television series premiering in April."

The last Lupin III television anime series was Lupin III: Part III, which aired from 1984-1985.

Ok, the promo trailer is out, and I'm seriously impressed. Looks way better than I thought it would be. The retro and stylized look to it is awesome. It should also be pretty different from most Lupin shows since Fujiko is going to be the main character. Can't wait for this.

Looks like Funimation is going simulcast this one. I don't watch anime on my computer, so I'll wait for the physical release which hopefully comes from them.

posted on 2012-04-07 17:12 EDT

FUNimation Entertainment announced at its panel at Anime Boston on Saturday that it has acquired the simulcast rights to Lupin III - Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna (Lupin III - The Woman Called Fujiko Mine), the first new Lupin III television anime series in 27 years. The series will stream on the Nico Nico website and on Funimation's website this spring.

Sayo Yamamoto (Michiko to Hatchin) is directing the 13-episode series, making her the first female director on the Lupin III series. Redline director Takeshi Koike serves as animation director and character designer, and AnoHana's Mari Okada handles the scripts. Dai Sato (Cowboy Bebop, Eureka 7) is acting as an episode writer for the series, and composer/musician Naruyoshi Kikuchi is producing its opening theme as well as in-show music. Kanichi Kurita plays Lupin, Kiyoshi Kobayashi plays Daisuke Jigen, Daisuke Namikawa plays Goemon Ishikawa, Miyuki Sawashiro plays Fujiko Mine, and Kouichi Yamadera plays Inspector Zenigata.

Last October, the voice cast for the Lupin III anime franchise changed for the first time in 16 years. The voice cast for Lupin the Third - Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna is reflecting that change.

The series revolves around the character of Fujiko Mine, depicting her and the rest of the Lupin III cast during their younger days. The series will reportedly capture the "sensuality" present in Monkey Punch's original Lupin III manga in its "daring interpretation" of the franchise.

The series premiered in Japan on April 4.

I revive this old thread by mentionning this video titled "7 things you (probably) don't know about Lupin III.


And recently, there's a all-new Lupin series where he wear a new jacket. The new series is referred as the "Blue jacket" series as an opposition to the "green jacket" series (1971-72), the more well known and popular "red jacket" series (1977-80) and the "pink jacket" series (1984)

I liked both vids, thanks. Didn't realize about #7 in the first vid.
As a big Lupin fan, I've watched maybe every film, but have forgotten to look up a lot of the TV eps.
I should do that before the new series hits. (And after I get through two more seasons on M.Mystery- just wrapping up S.1).
