We found out the next target of Lupin III! It looks like he will target the curry restaurant Curry House CoCo Ichibanya. We went to the store to see if it was true, and at the Machida Tsurukawa store we found a notice from Lupin at the entrance!
A short message was written on it, ‘I will take CoCo Ichi’s treasure. -Lupin III,’ including the familiar mark of Lupin. The notice can be found at other stores as well! On the special event page of CoCo Ichi, you can see the same notice and the date: ‘1 April 2017. Don’t miss it!’ One is left to wonder what the CoCo Ichi treasure is and what will take place on 1 April 2017.
CoCo Ichi is a Curry House with over 1,000 stores all over Japan. Founded in 1978, it celebrates its 39th anniversary in 2017. Lupin the Third by Monkey Punch celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. A new anime adaptation was released in 2015, 30 years after the last one, and in February 2017 the anime movie Lupin the Third: Chikemuri no Ishikawa Goemon was released in cinemas. We are looking forward to seeing what will happen on the 1st of April!
