Title: First look at Lupin III: Part 5
Post by: Lupus Zeniga on January 16, 2018, 03:34:37 pm
https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2018-01-16/lupin-iii-5th-anime-series-reveals-staff-april-debut-modern-setting/.126478

The new series moves the setting to modern France. While Lupin will still use classic cars and traditional guns like the Walter P38, he will also employ the Internet, mobile devices, and other digital gadgets to take on his foes.

That dude looks like a new rival.

This should be interesting to see.

Obviously there is very little to go on here, but for some reason I have more of a feeling of worry than excitement. Maybe its a bad translation, but Part IV took place in a modern setting, so when they are going on about it being modern and how it will employ modern devices has me kinda suspicious, as if that is a large part of the show (smartphones, the internet, etc). Which in my opinion could get real dumb real fast. It could be exaggerated and all they mean is that instead of Italy's ancient structures being showcased, France's more modern cities are the main settings.

No matter what, hopefully it gets picked up by Crunchyroll a little quicker this time.

I am very excited for this. I don't see why the articles emphasize the "modern" aspect given that Part 4 was already very modern. I suppose technology will be central to the stories this time around, which is fine with me. Every main Lupin series has been contemporary to the time they were released in.

I'm so happy that this is going to be released so soon! I was hoping it would release this year, but I had no idea we'd be getting it so soon.

I'm also very happy that Yuji Ohno is coming back to compose. Being that this isn't a co-production with France, like Part IV was with Italy, it appears that Ohno is the only composer for the series. Which makes me very happy.

That promo image doesn't convey the kind of atmosphere that I like, especially after the previous one from last summer got my hopes up. Even if this turns out to be super modern and with elements of a cyber thriller or something, I hope there's still room for castles in the countryside, famous tourist attractions, the back alleys of small towns etc. that we got from the previous series. Lupin works the best for me in that kind of setting, especially considering that if things get too scientific, I wonder if Jigen and Goemon will really have that much to do.

But I don't want to let one promo image throw me into a panic. I hope the footage they show on Friday will look great.

The modern thing is most probably emphasized to create hype. Lupin III has been using modern technology for
a long time now (see the specials on top of part IV).

I am hyped for it and I really don't have any apprehension when we only have ONE visual for it. What intrigues me is Lupin's monocle.
It is probably a new gadget because it doesn't look old but it is also note-worthy that he wears Arsène Lupin's trademark while being in Lupin's
county of origin. I wonder if the series will explore that original affiliation more, especially since there is no legal issue regarding the Lupin estate since
the late 2000's.

As for the villain, he is young, businessan-ish, probably at the head of some computer/app enterprise, hence the virtual desintegration motif. In other words,
the perfect modern "censored"hole that exists today. A good villain. I can't help but see a resemblance between him and Mister Baron from the original manga.
Tad Hoshiya also noticed the resemblance.

Also, no one seems to have outlined the fact that this series will be written by the Code Geass author. He didn't make a masterpiece of everything he worked on but Code Geass being the masterpiece of the 2000's era, commanded for its story, it is engaging! I just hope the writers will have more room to breathe and do something slightly more daring than Part IV which was very entertaining and competent but still pretty conservative.

This is definitely a concern, because like you said Lupin works best in a classical era, where technology wasn't so prevalent and it was him and his wits against crooks/cops of various calibers.

But from my perspective, it looks like all the tech is belonging to that other dude alongside Lupin, ie he controls tech and can be a formidable foe in this tech-dependent age. And it takes Lupin relying on his wits and skills to take him down. It should be fun and interesting, hopefully.

I dig the slight changes in character design, especially Fujiko's haircut and Jigen's black tie. These images look absolutely lovely after the promo art had me worried.
Title: Re: First look at Lupin III: Part 5
Post by: Red Dear on January 19, 2018, 01:58:50 pm
I don't dig all the design changes. Jigen's black tie doesn't pop as well with such a darkly colored shirt, and the faces show the design
is a bit more generic and less distinct. But that may be due to the episode's animator rather than a constant for the series. Anime series are
known to be animated by several individuals who all got their distinct spin on the characters. Almost no episode in Part IV looked exactly the same.

I also see we have a new Lupin girl. It is a common trope for the franchise but not necessarily a bad one. Let us hope it won't retread old ground.
Positive point, the animation' fluidity is on point. ^^

Im just glad that Lupin looks much better in show than on the promo image. Also I guess Goemon is gonna change colors from now on?

Oh boy, my favorite series is the Yellow Kimono series.

I see that they are having another token girl, Rebecca was alright, but I feel like everytime they have one they are pushing their luck.

The girl in that image looks a bit young to me, maybe a teenager? If she's not anyone's love interest, I'm sure her screentime can be used to tell an interesting story. And that's assuming she's a regular character. I remember when the first screenshots of the fourth series came out and featured the magician, the ghost girl, the football player etc. it had me thinking if there was even room in the series for the regular cast, but of course they turned out to be just one-off side characters.

Agreed, going off just the one image, it could just as easily be a case of the girl being a character for a one-shot episode rather than a recurring role. Regardless, I'm eagerly anticipating this series and hope we get more news leading up to April!

I found about the new Lupin III TV series part 5 quite recently, so I'm very excited about this.
This one being in France makes more interesting for me.  ;D


The decision to set Lupin III TV series set in France is probably due to the copyright of Arsene Lupin getting expired few years ago, thus now being in public domain. So TMS is free to use to the Lupin name in France now, instead of having to use that ridiculous name of Edgard de La Cambriolade.

Miyuki Sawashiro, the voice of Fujiko Mine, is performing the show's ending theme song, composed by longtime Lupin III composer Yuji Ohno. The song is titled "Seine no Kaze ni... (Adieu)" (To the Winds of the Seine... (Farewell)).

Expecting some wonderful music.

Inori Minase as Ami Enan, a brilliant hacker girl.

Kenjiro Tsuda as Albert Dandorojii, a mysterious man who knows Lupin's past.

Nobunaga Shimazaki as Gorō Yadagarasu, an ICPO detective and Zenigata's subordinate (named for Goro Naya no doubt).
Title: Re: First look at Lupin III: Part 5
Post by: Red Dear on March 07, 2018, 04:37:36 pm
As I have revealed on several other websites, it is likely Albert's name is not Dandorojii,
a mistranslation, but "d'Andrésy". And if you know your Lupin history, you know this name
is very meaningful:

D'Andrésy is the maiden name of Arsène Lupin's mother. Arsène Lupin introduced himself as Raoul d'Andrésy on several occasions.

Albert d'Andrésy could either be a descendant of the maternal bloodline of Arsène Lupin or even better a descendant or Arsène Lupin himself, choosing the Andrésy name as an homage. He would therefore be Lupin III's cousin.

Honestly, the style is what does it for me. The animation budget (for the OP) seems a little less than Part IV, but the style and the charm more than makes up for it. I couldn't wipe the stupid grin off my face.

Actually kind of disinterested in the OP style. Looks like a really good fan made flash video. But not what I expect from Lupin. Not bad perse just....meh. however the series as a whole does look like a step down budget and animation wise from part IV. I wish they had stuck with the pencil work of series IV, this looks too digitally produced to me on the whole. However I am still excited to see it. Wondering if.....

And I can't believe I am going to say this but I am hoping Funimation will license this so we can have it in less than 4 years unlike DT's handling of Part IV.

Also what is with the Japan tv timeslot? Is anyone even awake at 2 am to watch this? Doesn't that seem like an absurdly late time to even consider airing this show to be financially viable?

Nothing in OP that I would have considered NSFW...Ending...uhh, yeah just a little lol. Mostly because a coworker, or other on looker, would have no context for the series and thus think you were watching some pervert cartoon. However the ending is excellent, I love the Fujiko vignette they have made with it. Especially the scene where she wraps hands with her unseen lover...is it Lupin? Or is that a look of sorrow on her face as she seduces another mark instead of her true love? Also does this mean she will have a larger role on this series? I wonder.

If you don’t mind importing, Japanese BD in July (https://mobile.twitter.com/Lupin_Pt5/status/981095763982741504). Also, Fujiko clip is *still* NSFW. But, unlike the OP, at least it doesn’t look like a fan video. Also, nice nods to Dezaki’s Golgo and Cobra ocean scenes and Kawajiri’s Wicked City love scene.  8) Oh, and more new character sketches (https://mobile.twitter.com/telecom_anime/status/981216129891708928).

I would not say the opening looks like a fan video. The style is very reminiscent of the french school of animation,
like the one at Les Gobelins. I actually would not be surprised to see some french names in the animation staff, Telecom
has hired some in the past.

I agree with the subtle hint at Golgo 13 and Dezaki's aesthetic in the ending. I didn't noticed it before you mentioned it. Kudos!

Also, I guess nsfw really differs from countries. XD

I was just making a joke because, in Part IV Fujiko was obstructed by bars of light, and now in Part V they got in a barely noticeable nip slip at the end.  Of course, this is all child's play compared to the Fujiko series.  ;D

They sure are knocking these ending credits out of the park! That bar scene is beautiful.

I actually enjoyed the opening of the new 5th series. I do wish the art wasn't too stylized, but that doesn't I don't like it.
And parts of the opening song is obviously going for more "French", like how the 4th series op theme went partially "Italian", which I appreciate.
The new opening theme will surely be called "Theme from Lupin III 2018", which seems to be a "French" stylized remix of the 1980 theme.

I agree with most people saying the ending sequence was indeed risque.

Anyways, I watched the 1st episode and I enjoyed more than I expected to. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

I will absolutely import if they include the subs. I also thought there was a flash of wicked city in that ending but thought that was perhaps unintentional and too obscure of a reference to be worth pointing out. But with the others you mention I think you may be right.

The ED has a very nice atmosphere: sensual, sexy, elegant and above all French.

It's got elements of French New Wave artistic style, classic scenes of French landmarks with Fujiko, and the French accordion music is very lovely to hear (but then I enjoy French accordions). It is rather risque, but that's Fujiko, isn't she?  ;D

The bar where everyone just chilled was a nice touch. It's what they'd do when resting from a heist/chase.


nice nods to Dezaki’s Golgo and Cobra ocean scenes and Kawajiri’s Wicked City love scene.

I just watched episode 2 and I also liked it. I get the feeling that the part 5 TV series will be a good show overall. While only episode 2, the overarching plot is interesting so far.
