5.0 out of 5 stars Classic anime! 13 Aug 2003
By 4MaskCurse - Published on
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best anime of all time! (Well, in my opinion.) 3 Feb 2003
By Valerie Hernandez - Published on
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Japan's most beloved criminal arrives stateside! 16 Mar 2003
By J. Soria - Published on
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars a true classic! 1 Feb 2003
By James L. Hendricks Jr. - Published on
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lupin is freakin hilarious 28 May 2003
By William Stenson III - Published on
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.
