Lupin the 3rd Part 6 (ルパン三世 PART6 Rupan Sansei PART6?) is the sixth and last animated television based on the Lupin III manga series written and illustrated by Monkey Punch. It was produced by TMS Entertainment, and was broadcasting by Nippon TV.

On August 20, 2021 it was announced that Sentai picked up the rights to stream and produce home video releases in North America, Australia, New Zealand and Scandinavia.[1]

Synopsis

This series will develop a story in two seasons around two keywords. The first one is "Mystery". A royal and original story with many mysteries begins. Lupin III and his gang will lightly run through the hard, heavy and severe world of Reiwa.[2] The second keyword "Woman" was revealed with the 3rd promotional poster and the release date of the second OST album by Yuji Ohno.

Season 1 (Lupin vs. Holmes)

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.[1]

Set in London, Lupin targets a treasure said to be hidden by the Raven, a mysterious organization that pulls the strings of the British Government from its shadows.

A single piece of art holds the key. But Scotland Yard and MI6 will do whatever it takes along with Inspector Zenigata and none other than Sherlock Holmes, the world’s greatest detective. Has the world’s greatest thief met his match?

Season 2 (Witch and Gentleman)

Lupin's next aim is a mysterious jewel that was put up for a treasure auction. The treasure, whose its origin and history are "unknown," was stolen from the mansion where the young Lupin once lived. A remnant of a certain woman that Lupin misses. And the fascinating women who appear one after another... It's magical nature invites the Lupin crew to an unreadable suspense. The stage takes off from England and goes to the whole world! Further "romance" and "mystery" await Lupin crew!!

Production

The series was created to celebrate 50 years since the airing of Lupin the 3rd Part 1 and to engage with the fans, five people were given the opportunity to appear in the series by a lottery on the @lupin_anime Twitter account.[3]

A teaser image was first released on the official Sega Twitter account[4] and fully revealed during the TMS Expo on March 25, 2021.[5] The announcement of producing and broadcasting this series was posted on May the 5th, the same day as the anniversary of Monkey Punch, the original author of Lupin III.

Notes

  • A leaked poster was posted on Twitter on May 24[10] while news was posted a day later on Japan News Lounge regarding the series and the contest. The news revealed that Eiji Suganuma was the director while Hirotaka Marufuji was the character designer.
  • The leaked poster of Lupin, in terms of lighting, bears a resemblance to a shot of Marco waking from a nightmare in The Manchurian Candidate, which hints at the brainwashing plot of the series' second arc.
