Lupin III Franchise to Get a Sixth Anime Series for the Anime’s 50th Anniversary

It has been announced that the Lupin III franchise will get a new anime series titled Lupin the Third: Part VI to commemorate the original anime’s 50th anniversary.

Eiji Suganama is directing the series at TMS Entertainment. Takahiro Ōkura is in charge of series composition. Hiroki Marufuji is designing the characters. Yuji Ohno is composing the music. The late Monkey Punch is credited for the original work.

Monkey Punch’s Lupin III manga about the titular thief’s escapades inspired five previous main television anime series, the Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine television anime series, several theatrical anime films, and a near-annual string of television anime specials.
