The English dub is just fine. Lupin rocks!

"Please do not let the reviewer who trashed the Pioneer English dub steer you from picking up this DVD. Once again, Pioneer has released another fine addition to the Lupin series, each one being funnier than the last. For you NON-otaku who are thinking of skipping this one because of what was said about Pioneer's dub cast, here's what you need to keep in mind about some hardcore "otaku" anime fans...even if the dub was perfect, they'd find some reason to whine. Hence, reviews like the one below. Remember that before you take that review too much to heart. I listened to the English dub and the original Japanese track with an open mind and open ears, and I think Tony Oliver(Lupin), Lex Lang (Goemon), Richard Epcar(Jigen) and Michelle Ruff(Fujiko) did an excellent job! The only thing that threw me off are the modern day pop-culture references that have made their way into too many of Pioneer's Lupin releases. But seeing how the original was made in the late 60's and early 70's, staying too close to the time period which it was made would have dated the series more than the animation has. But that's a minor quibble in what is a fine series overall.Oh, and if you ARE a "subs rule, dubs drool" anime fan, then let me clue you in...this edition, like all of the Pioneer Lupin series, comes with subtitles AND the original Japanese track. See? Everybody wins.Lupin the thiiiiiiirrrrrrd!!!"
It's Lupin and funny stuff as always

"Okay I will make this short and sweet, every episode on here is funny, the animation is clean and the sound is good. The only thing I do not like about the series so far is that they are not releasing the english versions of this in one set. This is the second season of Lupin, the funnier one, and there are over 100 episodes of it. I guess I will buy them until I see the english version of this in Box set. You could buy the Japanese sets also, but who wants to read the whole time."
