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:
https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-04-23/toonami-premieres-lupin-the-third-part-5-anime-on-june-15/.146045

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.

Slowly working my way through CR's stream, and ep. 7 has music 'borrowing' issues. [Scene in the tavern.] Hope they won't have to clear it on home video.

BTW, there's like already three home vid sets of Part IV, and Lupin has a blue jacket and European setting in both Part IV and Part V? So, to avoid confusion, as happened with WMW, if DT *does* get Part V, try to put Ami and Albert on the cover this time; and yeah, obviously fans are hoping for one set without an alternate French cut, too. And yeah, I guess if the part IV sets were a hit, then you don't need a new theme song this time. If not, maybe consider it, to also help avoid confusion.

Edit: They'll probably have to tone down the dialogue, as eps 13-16 feature anti-American rants which would make Angel Cop blush.

Could just be trying to co-promote it, but DT RT’ed the story. So does this mean they have the rights, too? Also, review of the dub. https://www.bubbleblabber.com/english-dub-review-lupin-the-third-part-v-the-girl-in-the-twin-towers/

Part V dub getting a schedule change. https://mobile.twitter.com/bolt7/status/1162645505983299585 And no, don’t ask when it’s gonna get a home vid release, because DT is still finishing up the rest of ‘77 as is. And yes, it helps if you buy both Part 4’s.

Anyone feel like translating this staff interview for part V? Can just get into the important points, I guess, not everything. https://mobile.twitter.com/lupin_anime/status/1165533227492098048
