A recent English language newspaper article has confirmed that the new blue jacket TV series is to now air on Italian TV channel, Boing.

While no new info on an air date has been revealed, the story does mention that the series will run for 26 episodes, each 30 minutes in length. This is pretty substantial for a new anime these days - but, Lupin is old-school, after all! The original TV series ran for around 26 episodes per season - green jacket only had 23 episodes, but it was cancelled before it could run for its full slot.

We will post more details as they become available!

Oh - and what do you think of the new, redesigned “Lupin the IIIrd” logo? I wonder if this will be an Italian exclusive logo, or if it will be used to promote the series in Japan, too!
