|Original Work||Monkey Punch aka Kazuhiko Katō|
Arsène Lupin III, the grandson of the fictional gentleman thief, Arsène Lupin, is considered the world’s greatest thief, known for announcing his intentions to steal valuable objects by sending a calling card to their owners. His right-hand man and best friend is Daisuke Jigen, an expert marksman who can accurately shoot a target in 0.3 seconds. Although Lupin and Jigen frequently work as a two-man team, they are often joined by Goemon Ishikawa XIII, a master swordsman whose sword can cut anything, and Fujiko Mine, a femme fatale and Lupin’s love interest. Although Fujiko usually works together with the others, she occasionally exploits Lupin’s interest in her to steal the treasure for herself. Lupin and his gang are constantly chased by Inspector Koichi Zenigata of Interpol, who has made it his life’s work to arrest them, pursuing Lupin across the globe.
Lupin the Third: Part 5 is the franchise’s latest tv animation. The anime first aired in Japan in April of 2018. As the series aired in Japan, Crunchyroll streamed it in Japanese with English subtitles. Lupin III: Part IV was the first Lupin III television anime series to star the character in three decades, premiering in Japan in October 2015. In January 2016, Crunchyroll began broadcasting Lupin III: Part IV.
