Established in 2021 by Japanese playwright Minoru Nosaka, Nosaka Laboratories specializes in bringing masterpiece mysteries to the stage. The “Arsène Lupin” series, written by the French author Maurice Leblanc for more than 25 years starting from 1905, stands out as a beloved collection of mystery adventure novels.
The current presentation, The Damsel with Green Eyes, serves as the inspiration behind the internationally acclaimed anime film Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro. Revolving around the enigmatic figure of Aurélie, renowned for her distinctive emerald eyes and serving as the model for Clarisse, the film’s heroine, this presentation weaves an alluring mystery.
