The "Lupin III" creator, Monkey Punch, did not seek permission from Maurice Leblanc's estate to use the name of Arsène Lupin, and at that time Japan did not enforce trade copyrights. This led to copyright issues once Lupin's popularity spread to North America and Europe, (the name was still permitted in Japan however), and in English translations of the film, the protagonist was known as either "Wolf" (the direct meaning of "Lupin") or "Rupan" (the Japanese pronunciation of the word) See more »

Top quality film debut from the now world renowned Hayao Miyazaki. the Castle of Cagliostro is great family entertainment, full of fun & action for the whole family (something Miyazaki has proven to be a master of during the past couple of decades). The animation is of a good standard, though it does show it's age & the more recent Manga English language dub is of high quality. A film for all anime & non anime fans alike 8/10.
