The official website for Lupin the Third: Part 5, the fifth Lupin III anime series, announced on Tuesday that Takaya Kamikawa (Gurren Lagann's Anti-Spiral, Naruto Shippūden: Blood Prison's Maroi) is voicing the character Enzo Bron, founder of the global IT company Shake Hanz. Enzo already appeared in the opening scene of the anime's first episode.

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 series has at least eight scriptwriters credited.

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.
