This was certainly a pleasant surprise.  I hadn't expected them to take the Fujiko-series incarnation any further.

Wasn't a huge fan of the Mine Fujiko series, but I loved Redline and honestly this looks pretty badass; more Lupin is always good thing!
I hope there will be a trailer soon.

I was hoping this to happen someday. This are really good news. If the live-action movie trailer comes out anytime soon, we'll have a full Lupintic month!

Hey that's cool, if Jigen's Headstone  does well , could Zenigata 's Handcuffs or Goemon's Blade be next ?

Mr. Lupin: The Goemon thing could happen sooner than you think, 'cus Reed thinks these spin-offs are all send-offs for the retiring voice actors.

Goemon's original voice-actor; Inoue Makio, already retired from the show in 2011, with Goro Naya and Eiko Masuyama.

But Kobayashi, being 81, it is possible he's leaving after this spin-off. But he also is the hardest member of the gang to recast. So I hope we will still listen to his voice a few years more.

No prob.  ;)

His replacement does a pretty good job, despite being a lot younger.

What I'm looking for, in this spin-off, Kobayashi send-off or not, is the interaction between Jigen and Lupin
and the return of the Koike still, wich is the closer to the original manga.

You could say a lot of things about the Mine Fujiko series by there's no denying the art style was really something.  ;D

Wow, another series set in the Fujiko series continuity that is coming out in a movie?
A very good news, even if I wasn't a big fan of the Fujiko tv series.

A pleasant surprise indeed, glad to see TWCFM is not going to end up as just a tiny special mark in the history of the show.
Two years seems to go by fast does not?

Reed spotted an ANN link with pics and another link to a voice-recording session.

Eyepatch Lupin? I can dig it.


But, 51 minutes long? Hopefully it will be the best damn 51 minutes I've ever experienced!

It's not unusual for anime film spin-offs to be that short in Japan. Some of them can be as brief as 15 minutes. As for the eyepatch, I have a feeling they were inspired by MGS.
