Manga About the Original Lupin Announced by Saito

The mangaka of the popular series Revolutionary Girl Utena Chiho Saito has announced that she will be doing a project based on the original Lupin. Yes, the real Maurice Leblanc character will be turned into a manga hero. We will be able to read not only about his grand-grandson, the one known to us from the movies and works that fall into the Monkey Punch franchise Lupin III.

Arsène Lupin is a master thief and a real gentleman. The works of author M. Leblanc have managed to enchant many people and turn them into crime books admirers. Saito-san will be publishing the new project in Shogakukan’s Zoukan Flowers magazine. The first chapter will be released in the magazine’s issue that comes out on November 14.

Maurice Leblanc is a genius. I am really happy this will be an anime and not a Hollywood blockbuster.
