Lupin Zero Teases Prequel With New Trailer and Poster

Lupin The Third's getting a special prequel anime series as one of the final new anime launches of 2022 overall, and now fans have been given a good look at what to expect with a new trailer and poster for Lupin Zero! Monkey Punch's original manga has grown into one of the most mainstay anime franchises of all time with not only a slate of successful TV anime and movie releases, but several spin-offs that have gone on to their own success as well. But soon fans will be given a cool new look at to how Lupin's journey in the series originally began.

As Lupin Zero prepares for its new premiere later this month, the series has given fans the biggest update yet with a new trailer (that you can check out in the video above) and poster (that you can check out below) that show off many of the characters we will get to see in action with the new 1960s set prequel. These include Lupin The Third's father and grandfather, young versions of Lupin and Jigen, and some new characters that will be introduced to fans with the prequel.
