Ookura Takahiro [Series Composition]
/ Novel “Greetings from Assistant Police Officer Fukuya” Screenplay “Detective Conan : The Fist of Blue Sapphire” etc.
Providing mystery through Lupin the Third. After receiving the request, I immediately came up with the name of Sherlock Holmes. He is probably the only person who can fight head-on with the Lupin family, which has been at the mercy of police organizations around the world for fifty years. Also, this time, people who are very active in various fields were working on the script. Please look forward to what kind of story will come out!
/ Novel “Isn’t it a murder? 1945 detective novel” Screenplay “Detective Conan” etc.
When I was working on the “Lupin the Third” novel half a century ago, Monkey-san drew illustrations.
This time I wrote a scenario for “Lupin the Third”.
There is no Monkey-san who wished to watch the most.
The flow of 50 years is fierce, but I’m sure you’ll see it over there.
Because it’s “Lupin” I wrote, it’s absolutely fun!
So please Monkey-san, fans, and others watch it!
/ Movies “GHOST IN THE SHELL / Ghost in the Shell” “Innocence” etc.
I never dreamed that I would be involved in the Lupine series again.
Okura-san, who is a member of the series, said, “Please write as you like”, so I asked him to write as he likes.
I can’t take responsibility, but I’m sure everyone, including Okura-san, has been fighting.
I would like to thank the creators for adopting this script.
/ Novels such as “Steam Opera Steam City Detective Tan” and “Stores Selling Kitan”
When I first met the anime “Taku” at the age of 13, it seemed to be the essence of the light, stylish and exciting swashbuckler of was popular at that time. And for half a century, Taku has been engrossing me as the one and only thing in this genre. Being involved in writing those series, which has all sorts of interesting things, it’s another world of “detective novels” that I love!
Ah, the profound monster and the famous detective are thus here…
/ Novels “Dog in the Sky” and “The Sanctuary That Never Returns”
I have a deep connection with “Lupin the Third” for a long time.
It started from the debut work
And then, to me with such background, comes an offer to write a scenario for the TV series PART6. Of course, I put all my energy into writing. I bring you the coolest and hard-boiled story!
/ Novels “Confession”, “Future”, etc.
When I was in elementary school, the first anime I’d been watching every day after returning from school was the rerun of “Lupin the Third.” Lupine generation of red jackets. He’s neither handsome nor a hero, but he’s cool. A wonderful thief companion, a beautiful woman who is always betraying but you can’t hate her, a police inspector who looks like a partner. I was watching it with excitement. I couldn’t believe I joined to the great members to work on the script! I am full of feelings that I want to brag about myself at that time.
