Welcome to the second edition of Monkey News, the weekly news roundup for everything Lupin III!
Fujiko Mine’s Lie releases on Blu-ray and DVD in Japan!
The home release of the third entry to Takeshi Koike’s Lupin the IIIrd spin-off series is now on sale in Japan.
Fujiko Mine’s Lie hit cinemas earlier this year, and now is available to buy on Blu-ray and DVD. The standard edition comes in at 4,800 yen, whereas the special edition (pictured below) is 6,800 yen on DVD and 7,800 yen on Blu-ray.
The special edition features a 100-page art book featuring storyboards and sketch work. Also included is director’s commentary, messages from the voice cast, video footage from the films premiere in May, and limited edition packaging.
An English language dub for Fujiko’s Lie premiered in America earlier this year, and while no official home video announcement has been made for the States, we would expect one isn’t too far off.
