The master thief Lupin III and his cronies continue their globe-trotting exploits, with the stubborn Inspector Zenigata ever at their trail.
Lupin the Third, grandson of the "gentleman thief," Arsene Lupin, traveles the world in search of challenging loot to steal, along with his companions: The sharpshooter Daisuke Jigen, the swordsman Ishikawa Goemon XIII, and the deadly beauty Fujiko Mine. Chasing them to the ends of the earth is the redoubtable ICPO officer Inspector Koichi (The Ol' Man) Zenigata. Whether it's a billion dollars' ransom menat to save the city of Pisa, Italy, a solid gold van, or the mask of Tutankamen, Lupin will go after it!
Most people in the US get acquainted with the Lupin III series via Hayao Miyazaki's debut film, The Castle of Cagliostro (1979) or this 1977 TV series which briefly aired on Adult Swim a few years ago. While it never made a hit on Adult Swim, this series was a smash in the late 1970s, the result of the franchise's renewed popularity which came from reruns of the 1971 Lupin anime.
Personally, I prefer the 1971 Lupin anime to this later incarnation. Despite the super limited animation and uneven tone over the 23 episodes, it broke more ground, feels more adult, and is less repetitive. However, that does not mean the second Lupin TV series is not worth your time. It's a fun, goofy romp of a show, one that can prove addictive if you're craving insane humor and quasi-surreal action. Yuji Ohno's soundtrack is superb, the essence of 1970s cool.
Also, the Geneon English dub isn't half bad. All the voice actors do their characters justice and seem to be having fun. This is a good series, one that deserves more than the lukewarm reception it received in the States. This is one of my favorite Anime TV series.
I first saw it off of the DVD line up after seeing a few Movies of Lupin the 3rd.
I never seen it or heard of it on TV.
But doesn't matter since I own most of the DVDs of the series so far.
This is known as the Second TV series of lupin the 3rd. Aired from 1977-1980 in Japan. It took 26 years for this series to get debut in English. It couldn't of aired back in the 80's cause back then people think Cartoons are only for kids.
But this ain't no kids show. Has some swearing, violence, nudity, and use of drugs. If this were to air back 20 years ago then it be edited and chopped up banded the episodes that aren't appropriate for little kids to see.
So it's good for a popular Anime TV series to finally hit the USA shores since America changed the way it sees cartoons.
The English version is good, funny, and uncut. Please it has some mentioning of modern day jokes which don't fit in the actual time period it's in. Such as one character mentioning Ebay or stuff that wasn't around 26 years ago.
Still funny even with those jokes. Those who prefer seeing it in Japanese will know the DVDs have the old Japanese Track with them. a5c7b9f00b
