Sentai Filmworks has announced that it acquired Lupin The 3rd Part 6, the next adventure in the saga of globetrotting thief, Lupin III. The latest installment commemorates the 50th anniversary of this influential franchise. Sentai will distribute the series to audiences in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, and all Nordic Countries.
Gentleman thief Lupin III is back and ready for his next caper— unless legendary sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, has anything to say about it. When Holmes’ longtime partner, Dr. Watson, is murdered, none other than Lupin tops the suspects list. With Holmes fast closing in, Lupin must prove his innocence and bring a shadowy organization called The Raven to heel if he wants to live to steal another day.
Produced by TMS Entertainment and based on the original work of Monkey Punch, Lupin The 3rd Part 6 is directed by Eiji Suganuma with music from longtime series music composer Yuji Ohno and series composition by Takahiro Okura. Hirotaka Marufuji provides the series’ character design.
The escapades of Lupin III have thrilled audiences for decades, with entries in the franchise spanning everything from manga and anime series to feature films and live action adaptations. To celebrate this beloved franchise’s 50th anniversary, TMS Entertainment is making 2021 the “Year of Lupin,” bringing audiences a brand new Lupin adventure along with exciting events, new theatrical and home video releases, and more.
Sentai will stream Lupin The 3rd Part 6 in association with select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
