Japanese TV station NTV will be showing three Lupin films this October, as part of the 1971 green jacket series' 45th anniversary celebration.

"Lupin III VS Detective Conan THE MOVIE" will show on October 7th, "The Castle of Cagliostro" on October 14th, and the very first Lupin film, "Mystery of Mamo", will show on October 21st.

We were at first a tad disappointed on NTV's choice of films here, as there are many other Lupin flicks that rarely get any time in the spotlight. Still, we cannot deny how classic Mamo is, or how iconic Cagliostro is, or how much loved the (still) ongoing Case Closed series is in Japan. Maybe these picks aren't so bad after all!
