Don't know if I'm going to finish part 2 and 3 or just skip to part 4 and continue from there.

MAL put Part V on title and yet the 2015 wasn't changed to Part IV?
More Lupin the Third? Should I watch the previous 2 season or what?
It looks like this would be another one created in France?
And who's the other guy on that visual?
Haters always gonna hate.

This should be interesting to see.

Judging by the concept and screenwriter of this, Lupin III '71 will likely remain the best Lupin series, but this should at least be interesting.

And it's yet another addition to the STACKED Spring 2018 anime season, which is definitely looking like the best anime season since I started watching seasonal anime, or perhaps even since I started getting back into watching anime in general.

Cue the references to "Don't skip JoJo parts 1 and 2."

Well I'm definitely watching this.
