The upcoming LUPIN THE 3rd PART 6 anime has received character trailers for Goemon Ishikawa and Fujiko Mine. The show is set to premiere in Japan on October 9.
LUPIN THE 3rd PART 6 is the latest anime adaptation of the late Monkey Punch’s manga series, which has spawned multiple anime TV series, films, and OVAs. There was also a live-action movie adaptation in 2014. Prior to Part VI, the most recent Lupin the Third anime were 2018’s LUPIN THE 3rd PART 5 series and 2019’s Lupin III: The First 3DCG movie.
Sentai describes PART 6 as:
Gentleman thief Lupin III is back and ready for his next caper— unless legendary sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, has anything to say about it! When Holmes’ longtime partner, Dr. Watson, is murdered, 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.
