Man, I'm so friggin' hyped for this! It's gonna be so awesome seeing my favorite anime airing on US TV again. And maybe it'll get more people into the franchise, and it won't be so dead around here.

(Though they're putting it at 1:30 again. Not sure if that's a good thing or not.)

Nothing really important, but here's an English PDF statement confirming the broadcast. But, also of note is the following comment:

'We are planning a lot of marketing activities for Lupin's 50th anniversary, along with this new broadcast and would like to expand Lupin in various ways in the US.'

Well I'm excited. It'll be a flashback to 2003, when I first got into Lupin via Cartoon Network's broadcast of Part 2 with (mostly) the same dub cast!

Here's a link to a promo for the debut on Adult Swim that aired at Momocon a few days ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVcGsChmg6k

Neat promo.

I need some time to get used to Doug Erholtz as Zenigata though. He could be a little more, I don't know, hot-tempered and lively.

Probably has more to do with the character himself. Pops in Part IV is a little more like his manga counterpart in that he's more dignified and competent, which I think makes his inevitable humiliation funnier.
Zenigata in previous series veered more toward being goofy and sometimes even idiotic (especially in the latter half of Part I and most of Part III).

That's an interesting choice of music...
Anyways, for Zenigata's voice, its ok, but it needs to be more rough and deep in my opinion.

I always saw Jigen as being the straight "only one sane" man in the Lupin saga, whether it indulges its comic side or its noir side. Part of Zenigata's appeal for me is that he doesn't give up; he may lose his dignity and get humiliated, but he is tenacious and committed as a watchdog of hell and is only seen as incompetent because his nemesis is a master trickster thief. 

You had left out Part II, but there he was both goofy and capable; one of his best episodes was where he had a doomed romance with a woman who had a bomb in her heart. It's a shame recent portrayals can't get a balance on both like Part II managed.

Rougher yes, but not necessarily deeper. IMO.


Anyway I hope this dub works out.

Is adult swim planning to re-run this any time soon?
 I was sick and slept right through it.

I'd love to see it on YTV... especially if they brought back Night Hood, then you can have an hour block of Lupin
