The release of Lupin the Third Part 5, the latest anime incarnation of Monkey Punch's gentleman thief character, is just around the corner, and now TMS Entertainment has released a creditless version of the show's opening animation for the world to enjoy.

By way of comparison, the rest of the show looks like this:
In Lupin the Third Part 5, Lupin and the gang head to France where they attempt a heist on the server farm of "Marco Polo", a dark website that sells illegal things such as drugs and weapons. In the process Lupin encounters Ami, a brilliant and mysterious female hacker, and also draws down the wrath of the criminals behind "Marco Polo", who make a twisted game out of targetting Lupin for assassination.
Lupin the Third Part 5 is directed by Yuichiro Yano and features animation by Telecom Animation Film. The series will broadcast as part of the Nippon TV network's "AnichU" late-night programming block on Tuesdays during the 25:29 time slot (actually at 1:59 AM JST on Wednesday morning) beginning on April 03, 2018.
