Trivia

The producers of this Lupin OVA, in an attempt to cut costs, replaced the entire established voice cast (Yasuo Yamada, Eiko Matsuyama, Makio Inoue, Kiyoshi Kobayashi and Goro Naya) with also well-known but less expensive actors (including Toshio Furukawa, best known from "Urusei Yatsura" (1981)). Due to very poor communication, Yamada (the voice of Lupin III) was led to believe that Monkey Punch himself was responsible for the slight. Although Yamada et al returned to their roles with the next TV special, relations between the two (who over the course of the Lupin III production history had become good friends) would remain permanently strained until Yamada's death in 1995.

Not enough Lupin sensei
26 October 1999 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

Some good action chase sequences in this one yet there is not enough Lupin "style" in it. The action centers mostly around Goemon who is a likeable character but a bit too stoic to carry the audience's interest. Lupin himself is sort of a side character in this film and it suffers because of it. His smart alec attitude is half the fun of watching a Lupin film!
