Amazon is listing five Blu-ray Disc and DVD home video releases with a total episode count of 24 episodes for Lupin the Third: Part 5, the fifth Lupin III anime series. Amazon lists the home video volumes with releases from July to November, with a new volume each month.
The anime premiered on Tuesday. Crunchyroll is streaming the series in Japanese with English subtitles as it airs in Japan.
Yuichiro Yano returns from the fourth series to direct Lupin the Third Part 5 at Telecom Animation Film with character designer Hisao Yokobori and musical composer Yuji Ohno. Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress) is in charge of the series scripts. Miyuki Sawashiro (Fujiko) is singing the ending theme song "Seine no Kaze ni … (Adieu)."
The new series moves the setting to modern France. While Lupin will still use classic cars and traditional guns like the Walter P38, he will also employ the Internet, mobile devices, and other digital gadgets to take on his foes.
