Special centers on kidnapping of Rebecca, fight over Count Cagliostro's inheritance

Seriously?  ::)

Cool! I was just telling a friend that I wouldn't be surprised if there's nothing new until 2017, but I'm glad to be proven wrong. I'm also glad that it focuses on Rebecca. I like her, and it's nice to see her stick around longer than I assumed.

It's coming out before the new series finishes airing in Japan, so it probably takes place during it, right? Do they usually announce the specials this close to when they air? Part of me wonders if the special's main function isn't just to promote the series to mainstream audiences since so far it's been airing on a midnight timeslot. I hope it's actually decent and not something they quickly put together in panic.

Good news, at least for me. It's interesting that not only this TV special is related to the current Blue Jacket series,
but that it apparently may also be connected to the Cagliostro film.  ;D (Though, even if connected, I doubt we'll get to see a grown-up Clarice in it)
I'm enjoying the blue jacket series so far.
I wonder if this Italian Game story will be somehow connected to the overall Italian Dream mystery in the TV series.

I think it's more likely connected to the Count Cagliostro from episode 3 then to the film... And I think "Italian Dream" is the wrong way to translate "Itaria no Yume", without spoiling anything it is more about the entire country than something that is Italian. I would say " Italia's Dream" / "Italy's Dream" would be more correct and I hope the crunchyroll subs go with this too.

Akai: I'm not sure if the special will be part of the package. But we'll find out soon enough.

If it is, I will sell my soul to crunchyroll. It's kind of unbelievable the amount of love Lupin has gotten from then, hulu, and discotek the past couple years

It's 'cus TMS wants Lupin to sell over here. Or at least stop losing money to torrents.

Apparently the new TV Special is basically a recap.

I caught the second half of it in the stream. Can't say I was really impressed, but if it brings more attention to the TV series, rock on. I liked the last scene with Rebecca, though. Really nice atmosphere.

Pretty much, or working around old episode, with new stuff added :)

Can anyone who also saw the italian episodes say if anything from Italian episode 6 or 23 was used?

Also, is only the animation reused or is the dialogue the same as well

Just finished watching the Italian game trailer when I got back home from my job, and I was super impressed with it. If this ends up being good, I'll happily give Blue Jacket another try.
