Legendary Animator Koji Morimoto Offers a Glimpse at “Lupin III” Special Opening
The lovable and occasionally heroic thief hasn’t run out of energy or popularity just yet – he’s slated to dazzle and amaze early in the new year with a TV special set to premiere on January 8th.
This will be the first Lupin TV special in two years (since Princess of the Breeze – The Hidden City in the Sky).
It appears as though the voice actor for Seto Kaiba will be getting in on the action this time, so for some people that may be a reason to get excited in and of itself!

In addition to Lupin The 3rd Part 4, Nihon TV will also air a new two-hour TV special Lupin the Third: Italian Game at 21:00 on January 8, 2016 (JST).
Legendary animator Koji Morimoto (Akira, The Animatrix, Memories) has offered a teaser for his opening for the anime.
In this special, Lupin receives a challenge from a mysterious man named “The Masked Count.” The target is the inheritance of Count Cagliostro (it is not clear whether it means the same character appeared in the 1979 film The Castle of Cagliostro).
44-year-old voice actor Tsuda Kenjiro, best known as Seto Kaiba in the Yu-Gi-Oh! series is cast as The Masked Count.
