Lupin the Third, the anime which captivated us with its goofy, action-adventure dynamics, is finally coming back with a bang with Part 6.
While we celebrate the character’s 50th anniversary with the upcoming season, bad news awaits poor Lupin. He’ll be celebrating it while being hunted by none other than the renowned detective, Sherlock Holmes.
The upcoming series is going to be exhilarating with the addition of the legendary detective besides the popular gentleman thief himself.
The great idea of incorporating Sherlock in the series is the script supervisor, Takahiro Okura’s. In his mind, Sherlock is probably the only person who can fight head-on with the Lupin family, who have been at the mercy of police organizations worldwide for half a century.
So, when is Lupin the Third Part 6 coming?

The latest key visual depicts the main characters, Lupin, Jigen, Goemon, Fujiko, and Inspector Zenigata standing in the wilderness that opens the door to the theme of this series, “Mystery.” The character designer, Hiroki Marufuji, drew the fantastic black, white and turquoise illustration.
The visual below shows Lupin, with his hand on his head. We also see a catchphrase saying, “Lupin, Villain or Hero?
The visual uses black, white, and red tones to create a highly contrastive depiction of Lupin’s face and highlights the duality and nuances of Lupin’s complex identity.

The teaser starts with the sound of a bell from the clock tower. After which, it shows different clips in a very somber tone.
It also shows a brief narration, “Is he a hero or a villain?” and then followed by the sound of a gunshot. At the end of the teaser, we see Lupin replying, “You’ve got to be kidding me.”
4. What to Expect From Part 6?
When it comes to the art of thievery, there is nothing Lupin III cannot steal; whether it be works of art, hidden treasures, jewels, the secret to immortality, or the heart of a pretty girl.
The series is set to unfold with the theme of “mystery” as Lupin and the gang are thrown into the modern age.
Part 6 is staged in London and Lupin’s target is a treasure hidden by Raven, a mysterious organization that controls the British government from the shadows. He has a picture that serves as a clue for the treasure, but there is a problem, murder. Dr. Watson, Sherlock’s assistant, is murdered, and the prime suspect is Lupin.
Scotland Yard and MI6 stand out at the crime scene. Zenigata, the inspector hunting down Lupin’s movement, and the detective who appears before Lupin is none other than the legendary Sherlock Holmes.
