French singer Clémentine released her 1st bossa nova cover album of popular anime songs in July 2010 and it was well-received by Japanese listeners.

Italian groups B.I.C. production and Gruppo Orizzonti announced the production of non profit live-action Lupin the 3rd: The Fan Movie in November 2010 and posted a teaser trailer on the web at the end of January 2011.
