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 »

Less worthier than the other series, but still Lupin.
21 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was known as the least favorite series of the Lupin franchise. Not only was it known as the 3rd Lupin TV series. But it also got the nickname of it being the "Pink Jacket series" because of Lupin wearing a pink jacket, instead of traditional green or common red.

Unlike the first other 2 TV series. Which were both admired by the fans. This one focuses more on slap stick humor rather than smart humor. Contains the same actors who portray their trademark roles. And directed by the same dude who did the third movie. See my review on that one for further detail.

I only seen a few episodes of this anime. But I can assure to not expect it to be an all great anime. And it's not a high recommendation for those who want to know more about Lupin. This one is a weak example of how great Lupin the 3rd really is.

But it's a good thing that there'll never be another pink jacket related Lupin anime anytime soon.
