This film was a collaboration between the anime company TMS Entertainment and the film company Toho Company. However, by the time the pilot was completed in 1969, because of budget concerns and other problems between Toho and TMS, the film never reached cinema theaters. See more »
This was Lupin's first debut in animation. 2 years after being published in a comic by Monkey Punch.
This short film was just the beginning of a long history of one of the most popular series of Japan.
In this Pilot film, it introduces all 5 characters including Lupin, and gives you the basic idea of what the series is like.
Lupin plays Shouji with Zenigata on the phone, but only to discover that one of the pieces is fake with a bomb in it. Which makes Zenigata ferocious and wants to track down Lupin. While Goemon wants to kill Lupin for his own purposes.
It's a short story, the whole point of it was to show the profiles in animation form, and soon be promoted to TV and movie industries.
2 different versions were made of this short. On for TV and one for the movies. Course both have their differences, but same story to follow.
It's older than the 23 episode series, but it was the first tiny step for Lupin to become highly known throughout Japan.
It's only available to view by fan sub or the Secret Files R2 DVD.
