Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Since his animated debut in 1971, four years after his initial appearance in Manga Action, Lupin III has remained one of the most popular characters in anime history. Created by artist Monkey Punch (Kazuhiko Kato), Lupin has starred in television series, feature films, and TV movies. These adventures are from the second TV season. Accompanied by crack shot Jigen, super-samurai Goemon, and sex bomb Fujiko, Lupin travels the world, pulling off fantastic heists and impossible escapes. Although he never manages to hang onto the loot, Lupin stays ahead of Interpol Inspector Zenigata, who chases the arch-thief with a fanaticism that rivals Wile E. Coyote's pursuit of the Road Runner. The decades-old animation looks decidedly cheesy, but the crude humor and offbeat appeal of the characters have won them countless fans on both sides of the Pacific. (Rated 13 and older: violence, nudity, profanity, risqué humor, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic anime! Aug. 13 2003
Like many of the other reviewers here,I was introduced to Lupin &
company through the anime section of adult swim.I simply loved the charm of the show;the chemistry is all there.Lupin (the gentleman thief) and his wit,Jigen(the marksman) and his dry humor,Fujiko(the femme fatale) and her teasing alure and also Goemon (the samurai) and his fortune cookie-like messages of wisdom."The oak is proud like a man,but the blade is sharp like a woman!"Oh,and let's not forget the obsessive,zany Inspector Ziginata,whose attempts to catch Lupin are always in vain."I'LL GET YOU LUPIN!!"The show may seem a bit simple,and yes the drawings and color a bit dated(it was created in the early 70's),but like Speed Racer(although a bit more naughty!)this classic anime just has that special something that keeps you hooked!
Now for the dvd itself,I was pleased with the voice acting and the subtitle options;I personally watch it in english,as it's aired on adult swim.I'm almost positive that the english voice actress for Fujiko is the same one that does Faye Valentine on Cowboy Bebop and Suzuka on Outlaw Star!(compare them and listen for yourself) Speaking of Miss Fujiko,you get to see ALOT more of her on this dvd if you know what I mean!So no kids...
Yes,the "extras" where pretty lame,but I was just happy to have a nice collection of Lupin to watch whenever I want!If nothing else,I wished Pioneer would have gotten rid of those flimsy extras and instead added another three episodes!
In the end I was happy with my purcahse,and will buy other volumes to watch Lupin and his friends go on all sorts of gold heisting,tomb raiding,bank robbing adventures!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series, so-so DVD... March 2 2003
If you only know Lupin III through Miyazaki Hayao's classic "Castle of Cagliostro," you may be in for a shock. These episodes, taken from the '73 season of the series, are closer to the bawdy, go-for-broke spirit of the classic manga by Monkey Punch. And fans of Cowboy Bebop will undoubtedly notice a more than passing similarity between Lupin, Jigen and Fujiko, and Spike Spiegel, Jet Black and Faye Valentine. (Indeed, CB's title sequence is virtually a rip-off of the opening titles of Lupin's later seasons.)
The good news: The DVD contains a generous six episodes, all of which are presented in fresh transfers with clean picture and sparkling sound.
The not-so-good news is that the subtitles are absolutely wretched. Japanese is so different from English, so reliant on context and subtleties, that it must be pretty much broken down and reconstituted into an English equivalent in order to get its humor and characterization across. Unfortunately, Pioneer didn't bother to do anything more than a cursory literal translation. As a result the dialogue is flat as a pancake, completely lacking in characterization, or humor, or any of the zip and snappy wisecracking of the original. At times it's even ungrammatical ("If the police stops us, we're done for.") and barely more coherent than a Hong Kong [copy].
While the English dub is better in this respect, those of us who prefer the talent of the original Japanese voice actors are in for a joyless experience. As a result, I won't be buying any further volumes of this series. A real pity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best anime of all time! (Well, in my opinion.) Feb. 2 2003
About five years ago I ordered fansubs (fan subtitled copies of anime not liscensed in the U.S., usually a good way to find out about lesser-known series) from someone who put the Lupin III pilot film onto one of my tapes. I had no idea what the show was or what it was about, but after watching the pilot I was instantly hooked. I found some episodes of the first and second series and watched those. This anime isn't like your typical anime, it's heavily influenced by Western comic books, movies and pop culture, and the influence shows. The creator of the Lupin III comic book (from which the tv series and movies were adapted from), Monkey Punch, is a self-proclaimed fan of the original 1960's Mad Magazine (particularly the art style of Mort Drucker), and one can also sense a hint of James Bond, Pink Panther and even some of the campy 60's Batman. Also, people spoiled by the well-produced and slick animation style of more recent series like Cowboy Bebop or Trigun might be disappointed in the vintage, rought-around-the-edges feel of the animation in this series. Also, unlike other anime, this show is not to be taken completely seriously. It does have its serious moments (as fans of the first series that debuted five years before this version will note) but on the whole the show is pure fun, full of mad scientists, improbable plots and car chases, and crazy scenarios. If you are looking for an anime that's weird, funny and has some really cool characters, then Lupin III is for you.
