The official website for Lupin the Third: Part 5, the fifth Lupin III anime series, revealed seven more scriptwriters for the series on Monday.

The newly announced scriptwriters are:

Each scriptwriter is contributing their own vision of the character Lupin to highlight the variety in the Lupin the Third franchise over the last 50 years. Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress) was previously the only staff member credited with series scripts.

The anime premiered in NTV's AnichU programming block on April 3. Crunchyroll is streaming the series in Japanese with English subtitles as it airs in Japan. The anime is listed with 24 episodes.

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. 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.
