Trivia

Lupin prominently wears a pink jacket throughout the show. Thus this series is known as the "Pink Jacket" series to fans. See more »

Crazy Credits

The series title first appears in the opening as five Lupin dolls, who each form a letter of Lupin's name (one of which Zenigata mistakenly handcuffs). Later, the title appears again with each character looking in through a letter (L-Lupin, U-Jigen, P-Goemon, I-Fujiko, N-Zenigata), and right afterwards the Japanese title appears. See more »

A continuation with a different style, now with a pink jacket...
17 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the third part in the famous animated series of Lupin the third created by Monkey Punch. The first part of course, is considered as they best one, which contains a more strategic plot and focuses more on the escapes of Lupin. The second part in the series on the other hand, was the most successful one, consisting of a Lupin with a red jacket. In the previous one, Lupin had a greenish blue jacket. For the second part, 150 episodes were created and they focused immensely on the adventures of Lupin, which were accompanied with great humor. The third part in the series, on the other hand, appears to be quiet different - especially in the drawings. Lupin has a different look, a larger face with a more caricature look. His jacket is pink and it seems that the drawings are exaggerated to some extent. A possible explanation could be to make the show funnier and in one way it had succeeded. I don't quiet remember this series because i watched a long time ago, but i would have to conclude that it was the weakest in comparison to the previous two. Nevertheless, it consists of great fun and lot of Lupin adventures and i definitively conclude that it's worth watching. *** out of ****
