The fourth season's opening credits is set in a jazzy cabaret performance:
Lupin performs some tricks with cards and balls, and especially on Zenigata
Jigen makes a split-second appearance
Goemon performs a dance in Japanese costume
Fujiko appears in various dresses
Zenigata takes part in a puppet show hosted by the gang... who promptly run away from him.
I first saw it off of the DVD line up after seeing a few Movies of Lupin the 3rd.
I never seen it or heard of it on TV.
But doesn't matter since I own most of the DVDs of the series so far.
This is known as the Second TV series of lupin the 3rd. Aired from 1977-1980 in Japan. It took 26 years for this series to get debut in English. It couldn't of aired back in the 80's cause back then people think Cartoons are only for kids.
But this ain't no kids show. Has some swearing, violence, nudity, and use of drugs. If this were to air back 20 years ago then it be edited and chopped up banded the episodes that aren't appropriate for little kids to see.
So it's good for a popular Anime TV series to finally hit the USA shores since America changed the way it sees cartoons.
The English version is good, funny, and uncut. Please it has some mentioning of modern day jokes which don't fit in the actual time period it's in. Such as one character mentioning Ebay or stuff that wasn't around 26 years ago.
Still funny even with those jokes. Those who prefer seeing it in Japanese will know the DVDs have the old Japanese Track with them.
