A legendary thief deserves a legendary heist, and Lupin has set his sights on his biggest bounty yet: Marco Polo, a dark-web marketplace where drug dealers proliferate and there’s money for the taking. But just as Lupin swipes his latest fortune and tries to make off with the goods, his hideout is inexplicably surrounded by Zenigata and his forces thanks to a new game that’s gone viral on social media. It has a very specific, very unfortunate objective, and the name of the game is “Arrest Lupin III”!
Produced by TMS Entertainment (Dr. STONE), Lupin the 3rd Part 5 is directed by Yuichiro Yano (Moyasimon, Tales of Agriculture) with series composition by Ichiro Okouchi (Princess Principal). Go Zappa (Ahiru no Sora) produced the script. Seiyuus Kanichi Kurita (Lupin the 3rd) and Kiyoshi Kobayashi (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure) return to voice Lupin III and Daisuke Jigen, respectively.
