A new Lupin III themed Kabuki style stage show is heading to select theatres in Japan later this year!

Starting in December, the play will feature all of your favourite characters, on a Kabuki stage for the first time (that is, if you discount those two classic Part 2 episodes, titled The Kooky Kabuki) in English)!

Tickets are yet to go on sale, and we are hoping to find out more details ahead of its showing. The current cast list features some famous Kabuki actors / actresses, and is as follows:

  • Lupin III: 片岡 愛之助 (Kataoka Ainosuke VI)
  • Goemon XIII: 尾上 松也 (Onoe Matsuya II)
  • Jigen Daisuke: 市川 笑三郎 (Shozaburô Ichikawa)
  • Fujiko Mine: 市川 笑也 (Shōya Ichikawa)
  • Inspector Zenigata: 市川 中車 (Ichikawa Chūsha)

I hope we'll be able to watch this in a similar way like the musical!
I hope we can see a bootleg at least, but it would be even nicer if there was a pro shot version! I will keep my fingers crossed on both hands lol
