FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HOUSTON, TX — November 23, 2021 — HIDIVE announced today that it acquired streaming rights to the entire iconic LUPIN THE 3rd television anime series in addition to the latest installment in the franchise, LUPIN THE 3rd PART 6, now streaming exclusively on HIDIVE. With this content expansion, HIDIVE subscribers can now enjoy LUPIN THE 3rd Parts 1-6 plus other goodies, including special bonus episodes.
Because Lupin III wouldn’t be the same if he flew solo, HIDIVE will also stream The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, a 13-episode series chronicling Lupin’s on-again, off-again ally and femme fatale, Fujiko Mine’s first encounter with the globetrotting gentleman thief. These additions, in conjunction with the currently streaming LUPIN THE 3rd PART 6, make HIDIVE a must-watch destination for fans of the LUPIN THE 3rd franchise.
HIDIVE describes the sixth series of the LUPIN THE 3rd TV-anime as follows: “Gentleman thief Lupin III is back and ready for his next caper — unless legendary sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, has anything to say about it! After a terrible crime comes to light in London, none other than Lupin tops the suspects list. With Holmes fast closing in, Lupin must prove his innocence and bring a shadowy organization called The Raven to heel if he wants to live to steal another day.”
Fans of LUPIN THE 3rd can enjoy all installments of the TV anime series with a HIDIVE subscription. New subscribers can sign up today to enjoy a free trial and unlimited streaming of their favorite anime series.
