Here’s some cool artwork from the upcoming DVD and Blu Ray release of Takeshi Koike’s Daisuke Jigen’s Gravestone!

The film will hit stores in Japan on November 28th - so we’re only a week away.

We think the top image would make for a fantastic poster - hopefully a clean version will release in high quality sometime soon! It’s always great to see concept artwork of Koike’s unique Lupin designs, too!

"If I have many ingredients in my refrigerator, I can cook everything I want. But some ingredient may never be used. If I find only a carrot inside, I must cook it in the best way possible by chopping, grating, roasting, boiling, frying, drying, etc. With many ingredients I would probably never discover that the carrot itself can be such a delicious ingredient."


First images of The Tomb of Daisuke Jigen surface, show a very different Lupin!

This is Lupin. Jigen, can you hear me?

Loud and clear.

What’s the situation, Lupin?

Looks like the elevator in the back is the only way up.

Just as I expected.

You’ll have to take the elevator to the surface.

But make sure nobody sees you.

The new Takeshi Koike directed Lupin spin-off film will be screen for a limited period between June 21st to 27th in Tokyo and Shinjuku Wald 9.



Comme un trait d’union entre Miju Lee et Lizzy Stewart, voici quelques exemples du travail de la japonaise Fumi Koike. Une prédilection pour les scènes d’intérieur cosy, mais une ouverture sur l’extérieur, particulièrement les balades en montagne sous un grand ciel froid, comme si la jeune artiste traçait sa cartographie intime de ses lieux heureux, entre la chambre à coucher et la voûte céleste. L’immense et le tout petit. Version alanguie, ensommeillée, avec tous ces chiens qui dorment paisiblement, tranquilles. Une véritable quiétude se dégage de ses dessins ou peintures.
