Lupin the Third takes on the classic trope of police and thief chase to the next level.
Not only does it have plenty of action and perfect comic timing, but it also explores different potential storylines to keep fans invested in the franchise.
The writer, Monkey Punch, seems to branch out and create the stories considering the different types of genres like horror, mystery, thriller, and romance.
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Lupin the Third, the franchise dropped a new trailer for the Lupin the Third: Part VI anime on their official website. They also revealed that the anime would be released in October 2021.
The trailer has a lowkey paranormal and mysterious vibe to it. We can see short glimpses from the show and spot our favorite characters.
The anime is supposed to have two themes, the first one would be mystery as announced and the second one is yet to be revealed.
The teaser itself doesn’t have many scenes, but we can get a good idea of the theme of the upcoming anime.

A key visual was also revealed by the franchise. It shows Lupin with a maniacal smile. The poster is all red and makes us think of Part 6 of the show like a murder mystery.
The story started out with the thief and cop chase where everyone rooted for the thief.
But it soon turned into much more than just a chase as the story gets more complicated. More aspects and elements were added, but we never grew bored of it.
The anime was announced just two days ago with a visual which took fans by surprise, and saying that they got just excited would be an understatement.
Just fast forward the time to October already!!!
