In This New Anime, Lupin Sure Looks Like a Badass

Some of the first images of upcoming Lupin anime spin-off Lupin the IIIrd: Daisuke Jigen's Gravestone have hit the web. And Lupin (above) has somewhat of a Big Boss thing going on. Not a bad look at all!

Courtesy of website Crank-in and tipster Lee, you can see the first images of the upcoming feature film, which follows how master thief Lupin and his sidekick Jigen (below) became partners.

    I hope it's more along the lines of the recent Lupin series (The Woman Called Fujiko Mine) and less like the older material that was a lot more slapstick comedy. I like Castle of Cagliostro as much as the next guy, but the darker and more adult take was really good, and as I understand it is closer to the original manga's feel as well.

      Castle of Cagliostro was great because it was a Miyazaki film. The secret of mamo was really hard to watch after it. I'm definitely in agreement with you that I hope they don't go back to the weird fan service and bad jokes.

        Did some digging and sounds like this film will be a sequel to the Fujiko series, so more along those lines. Which makes me very happy.

        Also despite being Miyazaki's work, I personally don't think Cagliostro's that great. It's his first theatrical film and it's not a hugely satisfying piece in its own right. I find his subsequent work to be far better.
