Earlier in the month we noted down the list of titles potentially making their way onto the service during the month of May 2018. Today we can confirm that two of them have been added as scheduled for the United Kingdom & Ireland territories, and potentially more territories throughout the world.
Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro
The Special Edition version of the classic film directed by Hayao Miyazaki is available in English (1991 Streamline Pictures version), Japanese, Spanish & Brazilian Portuguese audio with English, French, Arabic, Polish & Traditional Chinese subtitles.
In the twilight of his career, master thief Lupin the Third’s latest and greatest caper has hit a snag. What should’ve been bags of cash from a national casino turns out to be expert counterfeits! Together with his partner-in-crime Jigen, Lupin heads to the remote European nation of Cagliostro to exact revenge.
Not everything goes as planned; the two encounter Clarisse, a royal damsel in distress being forced to marry the sinister Count Cagliostro against her will. Saving her won’t be easy, however, as Lupin and Jigen – together with Lupin’s unpredictable ex-girlfriend Fujiko and the swordsman Goemon – must fight their way through a trap-filled castle, a deadly dungeon, and an army of professional assassins! Can Lupin rescue the girl, evade the cuffs of his long-time nemesis Inspector Zenigata, and uncover the secret treasures of The Castle of Cagliostro?
Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas
All 26 episodes are available in Japanese, Spanish & Brazilian Portuguese audio with English, Japanese (Closed Captions), Arabic, Polish & Traditional Chinese subtitles.
Every two hundred years, good and evil wage a Holy War. On one side, the Goddess Athena leads her 88 Saints in order to protect the world from destruction. On the other, Hades, God of the Underworld, commands his 108 Specters to sow chaos upon the face of the Earth. But in the 18th century, the repeating cycle of war takes a new twist, as the reincarnations of these powerful entities happen to be friends!
Having growing up together in an orphanage in Italy, Tenma, Sasha, and Alone thought they would be together forever, a promise they remember by flower bracelets each of them wear. It wasn’t to be, however, as Sasha turns out to be the reincarnation of Athena, Tenma the reincarnation of the Pegasus Saint, and Alone… the reincarnation of Hades!
Now the battle rages, with Tenma struggling to find the strength to protect his friends. Can he keep Athena safe while fighting against his best friend? Must Alone perish so that the world can be saved? And will the three of them be able to keep the promise they made as children?
That’s all of the new catalogue additions for today. The live-action Mob Psycho 100 series will also be added onto Netflix starting 22nd May 2018.
Stay tuned as we cover more reveals later throughout the year via our round-up article.
