Anime's favorite gentleman thief is back with his crew to steal the summer spotlight! Isetan Shinjuku is launching a summer festival featuring the legendary hero, and fans can look forward to goods, snacks, and door prizes.
The department store's eatery, Bistro Riquewihr, will be offering a special menu of Lupin III-inspired dishes. Try Lupin's Wagyu Beef Hamburger, Jigen's Hard-Boiled Curry, or sweet parfaits inspired by the five leads. Private diners who order the bistro's fancy four-course menu may also get a calling card from Lupin in their dinner!
If you've only got time for a quick refuel, you can still get a cup of coffee with latte art:
Shoppers can also browse and purchase special items made for the occasion -- like a Lupin-patterned yukata, fancy handkerchiefs, or a dress shirt and necktie combo inspired by Lupin's iconic attire:
Events will also include a mystery evening, a concert from Yuji Ohno and the Lupintic Six, photo ops, daily sticker prizes at the door, and more.
Isetan x Lupin III - Lupin's Summer Festival runs from July 18-23 at Isetan Shinjuku. The event's online store will remain open until September 26.
