The first season of the classic Lupin III television anime got a brand new English dub, which makes its debut in select theaters in the United States on October 24, 2021, along with the premiere of the first two episodes of Lupin The 3rd Part 6. TMS Entertainment was also planning to premiere the first episode for free on YouTube on the same day, but the stream has since been postponed until further notice.
The world premiere was set to go live on October 24, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. PDT—which marks 50 years to the day since the episode first aired in Japan—and remain available to watch until October 31, 2021. At the time of this writing, the date has been shifted a year, likely until they figure out their schedule.
Here’s what TMS Entertainment had to say about the delay:
[POSTPONED – Until further notice]
Due to scheduling conflicts, we will be rescheduling our LUPIN THE 3rd PART 1 YouTube premiere event until further notice.
We sincerely apologize to the fans looking forward to this Sunday’s premiere.
