The first steps of Lupine III

The year 2023 promises to be even busier than the one we are currently going through. While the japanimation industry has never been better, new titles will be appearing very soon. In addition to the well-known, Jujutsu Kaisen, Attack of the Titans, or even Demon Slayer, it will also be necessary to count on Lupine III in 2023.

Although Monkey Punch, the iconic mangaka behind this manga, passed away in 2019, his work is still relevant. A brand new project titled Lupine Zero, which revisits Lupin’s childhood, will soon see the light of day. And hold on tight, because the series will debut on December 16 in Japan and will be compiled into 6 episodes.

On the other hand, it is important to specify that the anime will be available abroad only on HIDIVE for its premiere. Without further ado, discover below, the first images of some scenes from the anime Lupine Zero:
