The upcoming anime series is the latest installment of the iconic Lupin the 3rd series and is the follow-up to 2018’s Part 5 release. It is also the seventh TV adaptation of Monkey Punch’s manga series of the same name.
“Gentleman thief Lupin III is back and ready for his next caper— unless legendary sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, has anything to say about it,” reads the synopsis. “After a terrible crime comes to light in London, none other than Lupin tops the suspects list. With Holmes fast closing in, Lupin must prove his innocence and bring a shadowy organization called The Raven to heel if he wants to live to steal another day.”
