Is Lupin Still Burning? was released last year in Japan to celebrate the Lupin franchise’s 50th anniversary. Additionally, Lupin the Third creator Monkey Punch served as chief director on the project. TMS Entertainment USA previously debuted the OVA subtitled in the US at Anime NYC 2018, and has since bundled it with purchases of Lupin the 3rd Part V on digital platforms. The OVA’s title is a reference to the first episode of Lupin the 3rd Part I “Is Lupin Burning…?!”
I saw this OVA at Anime NYC last year, and it’s fantastic! Definitely make sure to tune in! https://t.co/Cj2YxGRfYx
