Trivia

Due to budget issues, Tokyo Movie Shinsha decided not to employ the original voice cast for this title (which was initially released as an OAV); instead, they opted for a slightly less-expensive but still well-known cast. Yasuto Yamada, the original voice of Lupin was not happy with the change, as he felt creator Monkey Punch had lobbied the producers for his replacement. Monkey Punch stated he was happy with Yamada's portrayal of Lupin, but felt he had no business telling the TMS staff what to do. Despite assurance by Monkey Punch that he had nothing to do with the cast change, his friendship with Yamada was permanently strained. See more »

One of the best and fewest of the Lupin OVAs
25 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the fewer Lupin OVAs. Oppoximately 3 in total.

This is one of the 2 Lupin anime owned by Animage who have it translated under the name "Rupan".

Besides that it's a great Lupin anime to view. Those who like Castle of Cagliostro or Goemon the trusty Samuri will like this one.

Has some good stuff including Ninjas, Car chases, & secret treasure hold with numerous tunnels, passages, and traps.

Please note that since this is done by a different team of Translators than Genenon or Funimation. The voice acting is different than their debuts.

Pretty much Jigen has a more Gravier voice than his other appearance. But the English voice talents are just fine.

The animation is very well made for an OVA from 1987.

It's worth buying for those who like Lupin the 3rd.
