My top three choices would be Hemingway Papers, Alcatraz Connection, and Operation Return the Treasure. Stolen Lupin would be fine, too.

The worst choices they could make are Angel Tactics, Elusiveness of the Fog, and The Last Job.

Flippy: Lupin lasted through quite a few DVDs here before most big companies gave up on it. It at least did better than Saint Seiya and the original Gundam, anyway. But then it had the benefit of the 2000s anime bubble and the AS broadcast to at least give it an early boost. Not to mention Cagliostro on DVD. And clearly, Cagliostro was the biggest seller, because of the Miyazaki name. So it doesn't have any bearing on the rest of the sales for the series. But overall, I guess Lupin did ok for an old-school anime and manga in a market which was not willing to consider anything made before the 90s. Which is probably better than most U.S. fans would've expected at the time. Could it have been bigger? Maybe, but the Internet was a different place ten years ago. Plus, FUNimation really didn't know what the hell it was doing with Lupin at the time-or Conan, for that matter.

Hemingway Papers or From Russia with Love would be the 2 I'd like to see the most.

They announced it was Goodbye Lady Liberty. There's a stickied thread at the top of the General Discussion, News, etc. board.

They said somewhere on one of the Lady Liberty posts on Facebook that they would announce another special this month. I believe that is what mikezilla2 is referring to.

Hmmm, another TV Special after Liberty? Sounds about right... :)

I'm taking that as a hint towards Hemingway.

I guess Akai got it, which means now we have to guess which Lupin's heading to Blu-Ray. Has to be Cagliostro, right?

Edit: Missed that part. There's a third Lupin announcement to be made soon, too?
