Just finished it(saw the 2 DVD episodes in Italian as well) and it was damn near everything I could have hoped for in a new Lupin series, and already I'm hoping, begging, pleading to God almighty, for a Lupin III Part V series of the same caliber to be announced.

Superb.

Rhys: Believe me. If TMS could crank these shows out every few years like Sailor Moon or Dragon Ball, they wouldn't have waited three decades for a new one. It's enough of a pain in the ass for them to come up with specials and/or movies on a regular basis.

Well, since this one was really well received, I'm sure they'll do another one.

The thing is it takes a lot of planning to do a Lupin series people really like. It's easier to just crank out 90-minute tv movies. So, if they were interested in doing another one, I don't expect TMS to jump on it soon.

Is anyone in Japan actually watching this? I ask with concern because I noticed a post over on Lupin Central with the airtime as 2:00am!!!! I remember Fujiko was latenight also but not this late! heck this is even more obscure than when MTV ran Aeon Flux at somthing like 11:00 or Midnight. Is their posting incorrect? If not I can't imagine the ratings will ever warrant a 2nd Season if this is when it airs...

It's been said the new TV series was welle received in Japan (as well as in Italy last summer at a similar time slot) so maybe it's a cultural thing ? So I think your assumption might be incorrect. And as for a second season, I don't know, good rating or not. I mean, the San Marino storyline is closed. But maybe this japanese/italian collaboration might pave the way for more international contracts and we could see Lupin go to different countries and settings ? The future is still a mystery for now. ^^
Time to play the game, time to get a chance !

I enjoyed the show. I kinda liked how Lupin and the gang disappeared and left Italy.
Will we ever get to see Rebecca again? Maybe not.
Anyways, now I hope I can get to watch those 2 Blu-Ray only in Japan episodes, sooner than later.

I assume the end of the Blue Jacket series is the end of any Lupin III anime stuff for 2016.

There is maybe a possibility of a 2016 TV Special near the end of the year, if were lucky.

That would be cool, but I just thought that Italian Game special might essentially be the 2016 TV special.
Maybe not.

Hey all, not sure if theres a post on this but does anyone know of a way to access the new Lupin III music releases of the soundtrack for this show??
Or any new Yuji Ohno music? I'm having a hard time trying to buy it or download or anything!

Holy cow, Samantha's alive!

EDIT: And she vanished as abruptly as she appeared!
