Details here.

Edit: For some reason, Tony sounds more like Leisure Suit Larry than Lupin this time.  ;D

Just saw this on my facebook notifications!  :)

So happy this will get a dub! Will it be the same cast that did "Jigen's Gravestone"?

Also any idea if "The Italian Game" special will be included?

Geez, it's been a year already since this show premiered, huh? Time flies!

Excited for this dub. This cast got me into Lupin in the first place on Adult Swim all those years ago, so to me they pretty much are the definitive English language Lupin cast. I even stopped watching Blue Jacket fansubs when I heard these guys were coming back, so I could watch the show for the first time with their voices.

Some of them sound a bit rusty, mainly Tony and Lex, but then it's also been something like 12 or so years since they last played the parts -- and they still sound good regardless. I'm sure they'll slip back into character as the series moves along. The new Zenigata, meanwhile, seems to be doing a decent homage to Jake Martin's performance without trying to exactly impersonate him.

Can't wait until we have a release date!

From the looks of it they seem to be using the International Masters. So no Japanese subtitles hardcoded in like the Crunchyroll video.

Since DT finally has the money to dub an entire anime show, I requested and hope they'll consider crowdfunding dubs for the green jacket Lupin and the rest of red jacket. Also, for novelty's sake, I requested they include the Italian version of the blue jacket show on the discs, too. So we'll see what happens.

This is really exciting! I don't need the dub myself, but it could potentially draw new people to the franchise who wouldn't give it a chance otherwise.

I wonder if they're going to use this opening or the Japanese one. The international OP and ED were released on CD in Japan last year, but I'm not sure if they've actually been used in any version of the series.

^Ugh, don't remind me that that opening exists. Maybe as a special or something, but if they replaced the original Japanese opening I would be very disappointed.

From the trailer I can say that the voice actor for Zenigata definitely is not the worst. But, it'll take some time to get used to.
And, heres hoping every random character in the anime has a cheesy Italian accent like that cab driver does.

Let's hope they nab a badass sounding voice actor for Nyx.

Doug Erholtz, I think.

He does a good job. ^^

I don't have the same nostalgic link with the red jacket dub but I must say this cast is indeed perfectly suited
for the whole gang. Having Epcar back as Jigen is such a treat !

It's also such a great thing that the Lupin franchise gains in popularity and international coverage. :)
Time to play the game, time to get a chance !

I hope you liked the Streamline dub's take on Count Cagliostro.

If it's Michael McConnohie.......Couldn't they have gotten someone younger? I mean the guy's 65 and Nyx can't be out of his 30's. Granted I haven't heard it obviously and I'll take Reed's word for it, but still...

Considering Nyx's hair are greyish and his face is slightly wrinkly and that he has three daughters
of varying age and a wife who's clearly passed her 30's, I think he should be around 40 to 50.

And voice-actors are rarely the same age as their roles. Still, I do hope Nyx will get a fitting voice, preferably
with a british accent. That would be nice. ^^

On another note, the new voice actor for Zenigata does a good job in the preview !

Like, he's tweaked it a little but his delivery is very close to how he sounds as the Count.
