The official Japanese opening video for the blue jacket Lupin III TV series has been uploaded ahead of the shows Japanese début on Thursday!

You can catch episode one on NTV at 26:40 (which, for those unfamiliar with Japan’s crazy late night television scheduling, is actually 02:40am on Friday morning!)

Episode two will air the week after, also on NTV. Unlike the first episode, the second will run an hour earlier at 25:29 (01:29am on Friday morning.) This will be the standard slot going forwards - Thursday at 25:29.

What do you think of the Japanese opening? Better than the Italian one? Has Ohno beaten Moreno?! Surely it cannot be! Let us know your thoughts!
