Lupin III Gets New Anime Special in November
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
A new Lupin III anime special, Lupin III: Tōhō Kenbunroku ~Another Page~ (Lupin III: Record of Observations of the East ~Another Page~) will air on NTV on November 2. The 23rd Lupin III anime work will feature the new cast that debuted with the Lupin III: Chi no Kokuin Eien no Mermaid television special that aired last December and continued with the Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine television anime that aired earlier this year.
The special will revolve around a long-lost page of Marco Polo's Record of Observations of the East travel journal (known in French as Livres des merveilles du monde and in English as Books of the Marvels of the World). Theo Argent, a professor who found this missing page, has been murdered, and Lupin is suspected as the killer. As Lupin is being chased by the police, he receives unexpected help from Argent's granddaughter Lisa (voiced by Marina Inoue). Additional cast members include Romi Park, Yuka Terasaki, and Sora Tokui.
Hajime Kamegaki (Lupin III vs. Detective Conan) is directing the special. Hidaka Katsuro (Kaitō Royale, Natsu Yasumi no Koibito) is writing the script, and Yuji Ohno will handle the special's music.
