Lupin the Third has been serving nonstop entertainment to otakus since half a century ago. The cunning Lupin with his guns-blazing partner, Jigen, is always a treat to watch!
Throw in the femme-fatale, Fujioka, and some more sweet and sour characters, and you have a masterpiece series.
Fans got a last glimpse at Lupin and company in 2019 when Lupin III: The First anime movie was released. It’s high time that you got part 6 of the anime, and that is exactly what we are here to shock you with!
Lupin, the Third Part VI has just been announced! The series is announced just in time to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the series.
The newly released visual of the anime shows Lupin with a crazy look in his eyes, but then again, he would not be the greatest thief ever without a little craziness inside him.
The announcement has not been officially confirmed yet. However, since the news has originated from a trusted source, there is a huge chance that the official announcement will follow soon.
Lupin the Third: Part V was set in France, where Lupin faced the ghosts of his past. This anime season was more modernized as Lupin, and the gang used many technologies in their mission.
Fans have been highly anticipating part 6, and it was rumored that part 6 would be aired in 2022. However, this unexpectedly early surprise has warmed up fans to the very core!
Eiji Suganuma will direct the upcoming anime series. His most famous directions are Masiroiro Symphony, Lord of Vermillion: The Crimson King, Whispered Words, etc.
Studio TMS Entertainment is returning to animate the series. We can guess that most other cast and staff members will also reprise their roles.
Plot of the Lupin the Third Part 6 is still under covers. Thus we are free to speculate what we would like to see from the anime. Lupin’s character has developed over the years to give him a more sensible outlook; how will the upcoming season portray him?
Of course, the spotlight cannot be stolen from Lupin, the main conman of the series, but we would also like to see more skills of the other thieves!
