Anime News: Saint Seiya Live-Action Film and Lupin joins Toonami!

Saint Seiya

This may true or false or good or bad but here is what I saw this morning. According from Anime News Network and from Eiga.com, Masami Kurumada manga series Saint Seiya (or English known as Knights of the Zodiac) will become a Hollywood live-action film. Toei Animation and Chinese distribution company A Really Good Film Company (ARGF) will be co-producing the film. Director Tomasz Bagiński will be in charge of the film along with Kozo Morishita and Yoshiyuki Ikezawa as producer and executive producer.

The story is described in the series here:

The story follows Seiya, a mortal who has trained to earn the sacred cloth of Pegasus. He joins the Saints, a group of fighters who must defend the universe and the reincarnation of the goddess Athena.

Lupin the 3rd

Announced through Twitter and PRWEB.com, the anime series Lupin the 3rd: Part 4 will be joining Toonami on June 17th, 2017. The anime will be English Dubbed by Pioneer dub, the same team who previously did the Dub when Lupin the 3rd was in Adult Swim years ago.
