That's what TMS's tube claims. Though they're a bit mistaken about it being the 'first', since it has played in one-time venues in the past here.

Is it wrong that the pessimist in me is worried how TMS is getting directly involved in so much Lupin stuff over here in the US?

I mean its good that Lupin is getting more exposure, and as long as Discotek can keep on releasing Lupin material like they have been I'm all good.

Personally, I think Conan's their more successful IP. But Lupin's the show they've had a strong attachment to, since the beginning.

Please stop putting question marks in your thread titles like a clickbait headline, GATSU. If TMS themselves says it's happening, pretty sure it's happening.

That said, you are correct about them being wrong on the "first" note. Not only has it done various limited runs in select theaters, it had a Fathom Events nationwide run circa ten years ago courtesy of Manga Entertainment in that whole "Anime Bento" week event. I still have the ticket stub for the Cagliostro screening I walked out on.

It was literally just the 480p Special Edition DVD with the still-frame opening titles blown up on the massive theater screen. I was holding out hope they'd gotten something a LITTLE better than the home video copy I could watch in equal quality on my home TV...maybe even HD? Maybe? Nnnnnope. IIRC, my friend and I barely stayed past the OP.

well hopefully we get a TRUE screening then lol. Chances I'll personally be able to see it are slim, being in Iowa, we barely get anime screenings as it is.

Wow, that must've looked horrendous on the big screen!  I don't blame you for walking out.  Hopefully you got your money back.

I couldn't be bothered to ask for a refund. Mainly because, at the time, I didn't want to send a message to the theater that "running anime events is a bad idea because you'll just get pickier customers who don't buy refreshments." I really wanted to support the concept of theatrical anime screenings, but Manga's provided footage was just a poor choice that sorely disappointed me. If I'd stayed, I probably would've just kept grumbling over the movie and bothering the other 10 people in the theater.

Further details.

Edit: BTW, is it wrong that I'd prefer that new Goemon movie get a U.S. theatrical release more?  :-\
