For N. America, I doubt Discotek's going to pick it up, soon, when they're still working on Red Jacket. Sentai or FUNi's more likely to get it this time. I'm sure Madman will probably say something soon, though.

Very exciting news. I do hope they can somehow manage to get the TV special that's airing and a home video release is a necessity considering 2 episodes are retail-only

Wow, I honestly did not expect it to be available in so many countries since the first three parts are US & Canada only. I still can't quite believe that I'll soon have a legal way to watch this series. I hope it'll get a home video release at some point as well, but there have been so many good Lupin news recently that I don't dare ask for more.

Well I wouldn't mind as much but the 2 BD/DVD exclusive episodes... The second one which is episode 23 I believe sets up the final 3 episodes of the series to my understanding

Akai: Your comment prompted me to inquire about this, and CR has gotten streaming rights to OVA episodes of recent series before (Locoldol and Wagnaria!!!/Working!!!), so it's not outside the realm of possibility.

That is slightly reassuring. I think us eve getting this simulcssted is a miracle so I believe anything can happen now.

Now that I think about it, I was wondering if we'd get the Italian dub, too. I asked CR, but I have a feeling it could be an exclusive over there.

Well, I know for a fact it's not on the BDs at least.

Well this is exciting. I'd given up trying to watch the show through unofficial channels.

I note it says it's for "members". I have an old Crunchyroll account, though I've barely used it. Do you need a pay account for this sort of thing, or will any account do?

From what I've seen, when they simulcast a show, free members have to wait a week before watching the episode, but since they are going to upload all the prior episodes at once, they will probably make free members wait a few days, maybe a week before watching them.

Also I'm pretty sure you can watch without making an account.

Okay, I can handle a short wait like that. Thanks for the response!

We are live folks; 13 episodes are free, today's episode needs a premium account.

And to top it all off, the editing seems to be pretty decent on these.

Here's the placeholder page for anyone else to lazy to look. No Italian dub, I presume, though, right?
