Lupin III: Part IV to Premiere on Toonami

Coming at you with some anime news, we’ve learned that the English dub of Lupin III: Part IV will be premiering on Toonami on June 17th. The dub was previewed at Katsucon earlier this year. I originally was going to attend it and see it myself but I decided to hang out with a few friends instead. To quote what we know about Lupin III: Part IV.

The story of the new series takes place in Italy and San Marino, and it features a blue-jacketed Lupin in his 20s. The series open with an invitation to Lupin’s wedding to a new character named Rebecca (played by Yukiyo Fujii in the Japanese version).

So let me know if you will be watching this on Toonami. Matter of fact, tell me your history with the Lupin series. As always I’m XBen3000 and I’m out!

Voltron Week – Day 7: Trendmasters Die-Cast Voltron Review

We finally come to the final day in Voltron Week, which is a blast from the past! Here I have I seemingly restored Trendmasters Die-Cast Deluxe Voltron that I believe was released to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the series, as this toy came out before the 3rd Dimension. Growing up in the 90’s this was the go to Voltron if one did not have any of the originals from the 80’s, and fit perfectly well since Voltron was syndicated on a few channels, specifically on Cartoon Network during Toonami. The only issues the toy suffered from was durability and longevity, but that is a common trait towards several incarnations of Voltron or Trendmasters in general. Yet, luckily enough I managed to pull parts together to make a complete one to own, and to review here on my YouTube Channel!
