The official website for the upcoming new Lupin the Third TV anime series has updated with the announcements for its main voice cast and TV stations in Japan for an October premiere. All of the recent five VAs, including 82-year-old Kiyoshi Kobayashi as Daisuke Jigen, will reprise their roles.
After three previous VAs for Goemon, Fujiko and Zenigata left the series due to their age (they are in their 70s and 80s) in 2011, Kobayashi is now the last remaining original voice cast since the first TV series aired in 1971-1972. Meanwhile, the VA for the new main character Rebecca Rossellini has not yet been revealed.
The new Lupin the Third TV anime will premiere on Nihon TV, Yomiuri TV, Miyagi TV, Chukyo TV, TV shinshu and TV Oita in October.
