Autumn Anime "Lupin the Third PART 6" Kurita Kanichi, Namikawa Daisuke, Sawashiro Miyuki, and Yamadera Kouichi Speak Their Enthusiasm! Character Promo Video "Ishikawa Goemon" Also Released
The main cast members of "Lupin the Third PART 6" (broadcast from October 9, 2021), a TV series to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the anime adaptation of "Lupin the Third", speak their enthusiasm for the show. Together, the first character promo video "Ishikawa Goemon" was released.
Under the theme of "mystery", "Lupin the Third PART 6" has Ookura Takahiro, a mystery novelist with many visualized adaptations who is also a scriptwriter for anime and tokusatsu, as the story editor. In addition, special guests from the novel and anime industry, such as Tsuji Masaki, Ashibe Taku, Higuchi Akio, Minato Kanae, and Oshii Mamoru, will participate in the script for the omnibus episodes, making it a deluxe series worthy of the anniversary.
2021 is a memorial year, the 50th anniversary of the anime adaptation. In commemoration of this anniversary, promo videos that express the distinctive characters of the Lupin III gang will be released irregularly.
The first video features Ishikawa Goemon, the swordsman who can be counted on in times of need. All the scenes in the promo video have been taken from the main anime of the new series, PART 6. The video gets our expectations high about what kind of Goemon we will get to see in the new series.
"Lupin the Third PART 6" will be broadcast on Nippon TV-related channels from 12:55 am on October 10.
The first broadcast will be "EPISODE 0 -Jidai-" in which Kobayashi Kiyoshi plays Jigen for the last time. Ootsuka Akio will play Jigen in the following episodes.

Kurita Kanichi as Lupin III
The other day, Yamada Yasuo-san (the first voice actor of Lupin III) appeared in my dream and told me to, "play Lupin III as if you were walking on broken glass." When I got up, I felt tensed up.
The new series has a bizarre and interesting script!
As it is the 50th anniversary of the anime adaptation, I hope many people will watch and enjoy the show.
Namikawa Daisuke as Ishikawa Goemon
The theme for "Lupin the Third PART 6" is "mystery", so you can expect a new story development in addition to the classic Lupin the Third taste.
I hope you'll enjoy the show.
Sawashiro Miyuki as Mine Fujiko
Each new series has been challenging, but the new PART 6 is even more challenging, or should I say, challenging in a different way...! The story is based on the mystery novel, Sherlock Holmes vs Lupin III, set in London, but in between, there is this omnibus of stories written by amazing scriptwriters, and they are all so unique! Please look forward to it!
Yamadera Kouichi as Inspector Zenigata
The story is amazing and the characters are fascinating!
The production team and we actors have put a lot of effort into creating the world of "Lupin the Third" that we want you to see right now, so please look forward to it!
