The first season of the classic LUPIN THE 3rd TV anime got a brand new English dub, which makes its debut in select US theaters on October 24 along with the premiere of the first two episodes of LUPIN THE 3rd PART 6. TMS Entertainment was also planning to premiere the first episode for free on YouTube on the same day, but the stream has since been postponed until further notice.
The world premiere was set to go live on October 24 at 9:00am Pacific Time—which marks 50 years to the day since the episode first aired in Japan—and remain available to watch until October 31. At the time of this writing, the date has been shifted a year, likely until they figure out their schedule.
Here’s what they had to say about the delay:
[POSTPONED – Until further notice]
Due to scheduling conflicts, we will be rescheduling our LUPIN THE 3rd PART 1 YouTube premiere event until further notice.
We sincerely apologize to the fans looking forward to this Sunday’s premiere.
TMS Entertainment describes the event:
LUPIN THE 3rd PART 1 Episode 1 debuted on October 24, 1971. Since then Lupin and his gang has thrilled fans around the world with their crazy escapades and breathtaking capers. To celebrate the beloved anime series’ 50th anniversary we present to you the English dub of the inaugural episode of LUPIN THE 3rd PART 1 with a special introduction from voice over director and voice of Jigen, Richard Epcar!
Hopefully this will be back up and running soon!
