「ルパン三世 princess of the breeze ~隠された空中都市~」

Yui Ishikawa (presumably unrelated to Goemon Ishikawa, currently known for voicing Mikasa in "Attack on Titan") will be voicing the "beta girl", "Yutika"/"Utica".

Wonderful news for the slightly altered designs. I'm glad to know they're still going to keep shaking that up.

It kinda looks a bit like "Alcatraz Connection," with a little dash of one of those late 80s specials in some of the facial expressions. Looks like Fujiko is wearing something similar to what she wore in "Harimao's Treasure." But I thought we already had the 2012 special that looked like that movie. lol

Looking at the pics of Yutika. Seems they're trying to bait the tsundere otaku with this one.  :P

Lupin's new face seems... less weird... and as a result... is more weird...  :o

I think for the Lupin design they started to go for the Walther P-38 design of him, then threw in the Alcatraz connection cause they felt like it.

I sorta like the look of Yutika, her design is a lot more interesting then a lot of other tv special girls

In this link http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20130809-00000014-mantan-ent it says it's the 24th special isn't it the 25th? (maybe I just suck at counting)

Lupin VS Conan isn't counted as a TV Special. As it wasn't included in the TV Special BD Box, I presume they just don't count it as one.

Oh, I never knew that! Thanks it was really puzzling me! XP

That's an accurate statement; it isn't listed in the TV Special section of the official site. The spine of the Blu-ray doesn't have "TV Special" on it where all the other DVD/Blu-rays for the specials do.

Will be interesting to see if the film cross-over is counted on the official site...

He's referring to the Lupin VS Conan feature film. Not this new TV special.

ANN finally put up their article:

Looks like I misread the original and it wasn't September, but just "this fall."

Wow, I am so excited that the Lupin vs Conan theatrical movie is not the only Lupin feature this year.
The title for this year's special reminds me of Castle in the Sky movie, which still sounds good to me.

I'm looking forward to both features.

I had the exact same though about the title. :D

Glad to know we will have a new special this year.

And I'm happy to see they ditched Lupin's white pants for this year. :P

The design indeed is reminiscent of Alcatraz and One-Dollar but with some
Harimao expressions.

Looking forward to it. :)
Time to play the game, time to get a chance !
