Lupin the 3rd Part 2 - Collection 4 out Dec 2019
« on: July 29, 2019, 03:00:29 pm »
Discotek have announced the final Part 2 box set will be coming out in December (episodes 118-155) including the dubbed versions of the Miyazaki episodes  :)

Really excited to have the entire Red Jacket series on DVD - wonder if DT will then do a Pink Jacket box set after  ;)

I’d imagine they’d crowdfund a pink jacket set, unless Babylon was a hit which merited taking that chance the way Cagliostro was for Manga and Geneon and Geneon’s pick-up of the red jacket show. It *does* help that Lupin wears a pink jacket in the *new* show, though. Will casuals watch that cult mess, though? Well, Part V *does* have better production values...Like I said, in the other thread, they should fund a new dub for the rest of red jacket and a massive BD set of it all. But until then, DT needs to restock on some of the previous red jacket sets, in case there are people who still haven’t bought them all. And who knows? If Goemon sells, will they rescue that Fujiko tv show? I think FUNi just doesn’t know what to do with Lupin, and DT seems to be the official ‘home’ for it, at least based on TMS’s preferences, so...

And yeah, if you want that 70’s Lupin on Blu, you definitely have to at least support the last set.

Actually, speaking of which, you can always test the demand for a dub of ‘77 on BD by crowdfunding that green jacket series first.

BTW, the second set at least is back in stock. First set, though, is still a while, I guess. https://www.rightstufanime.com/Lupin-The-3rd-Part-II-Collection-2-DVD

Now it’s OOS, again. Again, try to keep ‘em all available for the holiday season, DT.
