Today marks the 50th anniversary for Lupin III. How will you celebrate it?
By listening to '71 ME TRACKS excessively.
The QUINTESSENTIAL mystery for the Lupin franchise and Lupin fans:
What will the jacket color be for the new series?
My money on yellow, one of the few bright color left
Nobody appreciates Lupin anymore, including myself. It's just not my cup of tea. His girlfriend is hot as fuck though.
I'm watching Red Jacket all the way through for the first time and I love it. The English dub is pretty good and I think the voices really fit the characters.
I'm probably gonna watch all the later stuff in Japanese though because I don't wanna hear anybody else besides Tony Oliver and Michelle Ruff as Lupin and Fujiko.
By finally watching it.
Never seen a single episode of the series. But a few weeks ago when led by a sudden impulse, I watched Jigen's Gravestone and Blood Spray and fell in love with the whole thing.
I argue that the dub is better than Japanese. Even though both are good, the Japanese version suffers because they use the same VAs and it's noticeable in later installments when the characters sound older than they appear.
First promo image for the new series. Be aware this is ONLY a promo image. Lupin will most likely not have the blue jacket once again and they are waiting to announce the official jacket in the future.
Also here's the reveal.
Most of the shows and movies are a tad bit more lighthearted and fun. It can get pretty dark but it's all about crazy thieving adventures. Lupin and the character's have more personality than in the recent Koike films. It's not that brutal or bloody.
