Lupin the Third Part 5 to Toonami June 2019
« on: April 25, 2019, 05:49:45 pm »
I have absolutely no idea how anyone can beat Gatsu to a Lupin news item, but -- apparently Part V is set to premiere on Toonami in the U.S. in June:

I'm excited! I haven't watched the series at all yet because I was holding out for a DiscoTek announcement, preferably with a dub involved. This news guarantees a dub, which is great news as far as I'm concerned.

Took almost 4 years for DT to release Part IV subtitled here. Once again here they go chasing those awesome 5 viewers up at 2 am on Toonami!?!? So Part V ran in 2018 so that means 2022 for the subbed Blu-Ray release? Thanks, but I'll stick with my digital copies. Sorry DT but not trusting you guys with Lupin ever again...pass...

Oh, forgot to say. Not the almost complete interest in this announcement. DT killed Lupin in the US market confirmed. Even Funny-mation would have done better than this...

To be fair... Part IV was probably a licensing nightmare due to the fact that it was a co-production. Part V is solely TMS.
And it probably took quite a bit of time to fix the subtitles on Part IV as the simulcast ones were teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerible.
