Movie Reviews

Japan's most beloved criminal arrives stateside!
J. Soria | Virginia Beach, VA USA | 03/16/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I love the whimsical, fun adventures of Lupin III. The show strikes a nice balance between action, drama, and comedy. The drawing style is very quaint too... it just basically indicates right off the bat that you're gonna have a rollicking good time watching the show.The English dub is very fresh and fun to listen to. Some updated cultural references are thrown in to make the show not so much dated (the show is supposed to be set in the 1970s), but it doesn't bother most people, especially me. For those that like to listen to the original Japanese with the English subtitles, well, hopefully you know some good Japanese, because the subtitles look like they were translated into simplified English. I think some of the Japanese nuances may have been lost in the English subtitles. That's probably the only drawback to this DVD.If you're into chases all over the world, some wild action, and some really funny stuff, you can't go wrong with Lupin III."
Best anime of all time! (Well, in my opinion.)

"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 characters. If you are looking for an anime that's weird, funny and has some really cool characters, then Lupin III is for you."
A true classic!

"I was very, very surprised to learn that Lupin the 3rd would finally be released on dvd. This is probably one of them most famousgrop of characters anywhere in comics.movies/etc--who hasn't felt the urge to be lupin running from the law, or know of someone who fits the bll as Zenigata, Jgen, Goeman, and yes even Fujiko lol.A real keeper."
Lupin is freakin hilarious

"I first saw this show on Cartoon network and later found it it was from a long time ago, about 23 years worth and had a huge following. One day I am browsing around and I picked this up and was very happy with the content. THe only downfall with this dvd is no extras worthwhile, but the voice matching is great. This show's animation is dated for sure, but holds its own for the intentions. This four gang team is hilarious and I will pick up all the volumes. Lupin just has this wit, personality, cunningness, smart, and hilarious persoanility that you can not help but like the guy. The other characters around him balance eerything else out and the show has this great vibe to it. This show is as old as me and still holds its own as a series, it was ahead of its time. Pick this up for a anime buff, be warned they have sexual content in here with some dirty jokes thrown inso no kids."
