News Lupin III Part II Airs with Subs in Southern California
posted on 2009-12-29 15:37 EST
UTBHollywood, United Television Broadcasting's free digital television station that broadcasts in Southern California on channel 18.2, has been running both the first Lupin III anime series and the Lupin III: Part II sequel. It will run the 12th English-subtitled episode of the second series, "The Sleight Before Christmas," on Tuesday night at 10:00 p.m. The station's schedule lists up to the 23rd episode of the second series. That episode, "Auntie Ballistic," will run on January 15.
The station's website notes that the second series has 155 episodes. UTBHollywood has not yet responded to ANN's inquiry last week on whether the episodes after episode 23 will air. The Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block only ran episodes 1-2 and 4-27 in the United States, and only with English dubbing.
UTB 18.2 aired a broader slate of anime titles when it officially launched earlier this year. Besides Lupin III: Part II, the station is still airing Fantastic Children, and it recently ran the Eureka Seven and I can speak Japanese anime programs.
