It’s time to go back to where it all began, because a new LUPIN ZERO anime has been announced as an exploration of the famed thief’s origin story. The main staff has been revealed for the six-episode streaming anime, the world premiere of which HIDIVE plans to screen at this year’s Anime NYC convention.
Daisuke Sato is lined up to direct LUPIN ZERO, with Ichirou Okouchi on series composition and Asami Taguchi handling character designs for the Telecom Animation Film and TMS Entertainment production. Music is by Yoshihide Otomo and the setting historical research falls to Seiichi Shirato.
Check out the teaser ahead of the December debut:
The story of LUPIN ZERO whisks us back to the early ’60s to watch as a 13-year-old Lupin starts his notorious thieving run and leaves his mark on the world.
