Something new this fall
I'm loathe to post news that has few actual details, but given the dearth of news... Why not... Apparently, a tiny promo aired in Japan announcing a new TV series in the fall. No other details were provided beyond that; ANN picked up the story once the Japanese fans started their buzz. The US fans started their buzz including Reed Nelson reporting his sources confirmed it was a TV series though few other details -- important ones like crew, cast, and even anime vs. live-action -- were yet to be established.
Flash forward a few days, and ANN followed up with NTV, the usual Japanese broadcaster of Lupin specials. They were saying only a TV special was slated for the fall. Reed's source still claims that it will be a TV series. So, confusion reigns until more official information is provided.
My money is on a TV special only. My hope is for the special to be a 90 minute pilot that leads into a new series.
