I haven't seen a Lupin III show in a while, one of my favorite classics of all time.

Spring 2015 is looking good with Oregairu 2nd Season and Lupin III coming out.

I have so much of Lupin left to see, but I'm glad franchise is still alive.

I really can't wait for this. It gives me reason to kick myself in the ass to finish what Lupin stuff I haven't seen yet.

Lupin III: Series IV?

I notice the setting is given as Italy apparently for the whole series. This relatively restricted location is a first for the usually globe-trotting Lupin TV series. I'm hoping that there will be a strong sense of place as a result.

I wonder if it'll be a eclectic collection of one-shots like the other TV series or if they'll do a continuous story on some level?

Glad to see they've given Lupin a new jacket which shows sufficient gumption. Appealing to nostalgia too heavily by re-using the red jacket would have been a bad sign.

yesyesyes! It has been a wonderful year for anime. So many familiar faces coming to the future to say hey. Now even the great Lupin III will be joining us. Good timing cause I've actually just reached the 1/4 mark of everything Lupin to begin with. I can't wait to see the style first hand.

Yeah Lupin is back. And I can even watch it before japan,sometime being italian is nice

My thirst for more Lupin stuff will be satisfied! (At least for one season...) I hope it is going to be as good as the last movie with Conan or the show with Fujiko.

It would be nice if it is going to be in the same style like "Lupin the Third: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna".

Yeah more lupin the third:D
The greatest news ever in this week!!

Time to watch as much of the old Lupin Series and Movies before this aires.

Hope it's less pretentious than Fujiko Mine. I want goofy Lupin.

Excited as fuck. I just started Part 2 and was planning to watch it slowly, but now I'm going to finish it and Part 3 before this comes out.

HELL YEAH, this is amazing.
Time for the blue Jacket to take over the pink one. Staff looks good as well, time to hype what will probably be one of the best 2015 spring series.
