Reemsborko adds Lupin the Third to portfolio

Animé series encompasses six TV series, seven full length films, two live action films, plus music, stage musicals and video games.

Reemsborko continues to bolster its roster of anime properties, welcoming Lupin the Third to the fold.

Created in 1967 by manga artist Kazuhiko Katô (under the pen name of Monkey Punch), it has spawned a multi-media franchise, encompassing six animated TV series, seven full length theatrically released animated films, two live action films, multiple music CDs and soundtracks, stage musicals and video games.

The series has been heavily rotated on Funimation and Cartoon Network. New content is still being produced, with the first CGI feature film is due to be in cinemas worldwide later this year.

Lupin the Third is the grandson of the fictional Arsène Lupin, the original gentleman thief, and one of the most famous and wanted crooks in the world.

“It’s really great to be working with TMS, representing the best of Lupin the Third,” commented Max Arguile, founder of Reemsborko. “This classic animé property is still delivering new content that will drive consumer products to the fans.”

Cinzia Mariani, vp at TMS Paris, continued: “We are very excited at TMS to team up with Reemsborko to bring all the swagger and allure of the Lupin family to European fans old and new. Do keep an eye out for our gentleman thief.”
