Staff Announced for New Lupin III Anime

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 9, 2012 in Anime |


Want to get excited for a new anime? How about a new Lupin III series? Starting April 4th in Japan, viewers will get to see Lupin III -The Woman Called Fujiko Mine- on the small screen. It’ll focus on Fujiko Mine in particular, and is said to want to recapture the “sensuality” of the series in a “daring interpretation” of the original series. Of particular interest? The staff! Sayo Yamamoto, director of the series Michiko to Hatchin (an excellent cult favorite), will be directing the series, and Takeshi Koike (director of the ridiculously awesome Redline – watch it) will be handling character design and animation direction. An excellent lineup!

There had been reliable rumors of Koike working on the new Lupin III series for a while, but it’s great to have them finally confirmed. For point of reference, the last Lupin series finished airing in 1985, so this is a particularly big event (although there have been plenty of one-off specials aired since then). Check out the official site for some stylish and NSFWish art.
