They are making a new Lupin the Third animated series! It’s the first time in three decades! We previously saw footage of the show, which looked cool. There’s more good news: the show’s opening credits look cool, too. Phew!

The Lupin the Third anime has traditionally has had sweet opening sequences, so this might be a sign that the series (hopefully!) will be pretty good. Fingers gently crossed.
