Futabasha's Manga Action magazine has released the first volume of Naoya Hayakawa's brand new Lupin III manga. Volume one was made available to pick up online and in stores across Japan yesterday, the 21st of October.

Hayakawa is also currently working on the Lupin III H manga series, which contains original stories written by Monkey Punch himself. This new manga series, unlike Lupin III H, is an adaption of the TV animated series - specifically the ongoing blue jacket series, which began airing in Japan on October 1st this year.

The TV series continues tonight in Japan, with Jigen-centric episode "Hand me a Gun" hitting NTV at around midnight.
