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.
