The new Lupin the Third series premieres tomorrow

The new Lupin the Third series premieres tomorrow. Despite it being the Italian dub, does anyone here plan on watching it?

Will you just wait for the Japanese Dub which comes out in October, or perhaps the English Dub which will eventually come within a 6 month period after the Japanese Dub hopefully?

The original cast is coming back, and the music will be composed by the legendary Yuji Ohno once again. Key animator for Castle of Cagliostro Kazuhude Tomonaga will be working very closely with the new series so it will most likely look beautiful as fuck.

It is known already that it will maintain the funny hard-boiled spirit of the original 3 series (even though part 1 was pretty dark). It will be the Lupin you grew up loving and he's ready to steal some shit and then get fucked over by Fujiko.

If we're lucky we might see a titty or two if they're even slightly influenced by the Fujiko Mine series which had tons of nudity, a gorgeous artstyle but, the story was lacking a bit.

Anyway. What are you guys looking forward to the most? Think it will be great? Looks good? Anything you're worried about (besides the shitty theme song)?

When it comes to Lupin, there are dubs that are just as good if not better. The recent funimation dubs are fantastic, especially with the Fukuoka mine series.

Kazuhide Tomonaga is a veteran animator at Telecom and he even sits on the company's board. He's animated a lot of great scenes for the Lupin franchise, including the iconic car chase from Castle of Cagliostro. Having worked on the franchise for a long time I'd expect him to know what makes Lupin tick at least.

How old are you? The pop culture of Italy is full of anime.
Also: Dub bad? Well, in the last years we had some bad VA choices for some cartoon, but that's it (some are not even bad i must say, but just hard to get used when they change a VA with another).
Sadly for Lupin some of the original cast passed out, but if Mediaset is going to use the cast they used lately, im ok with this.

Why because they like enjoying shows differently? Just because you fail to learn about different cultures by watching it in different languages, doesn't mean they are less of a fan than you are. Maybe they just enjoy watching a show in the same language as they speak like a normal fucking person would do.

Also you should thank the dubfags. Here's an example.

anime gets dubbed in English
English people are now aware of it
watches it
tells their friends
soon enough you have these people buying anime
thus supporting the industry and making anime more accessible not only for them, but for YOU
which means better subs, dubs, and more money goes to the hard working people who make your favorite fucking anime.

To me it's you purist faggots that are the worst. You get so assblasted over people who watch a show differently than you even though no one is forcing you to change how you watch your shows nor will it ever effect the shows you watch. Stay retarded.

Oh I remember now. I vividly remember one of the lupins was in his car reminiscing of the legendary car chase from castle of cagliostro and he heard about the lupin who was caught shoplifting on his radio. Was really funny.

I didn't like how they portrayed lupin's hair in that film. I always imagined he has short hair but the green jacket lupin had long hair and just combed it back. I think something like that would look hideous in real life. Like some greaser type shit. I know it's petty but I didn't like it. It's refreshing to think there's a protagonist in an anime that doesn't have crazy long hair for once.

@RavySnake
Lupin is always calling him pops. Castle of Cagliostro take place 10 years after current lupin. He's still looks young in the film. So if lupin is about 25 currently, he would be about 35 in CoG. A good estimate is about 22-25 years old considering zenigata also doesn't look at old and he's very energetic. I'd say zenigata is about late 40's? Does that sound accurate? Maybe early 50's but nothing more.

This is not how it works, what is under the jacked can change episode to episode, btw, the red jacked had the most long series, Lupin was more heroic, the comedy was stronger, and the red jacked become iconic, thats why the new things from the franchise use the Red instead of the Pink.

Red jacket got a fuckload of episodes,like 100+ or so. Green jacket only got a single season and Pink Jacket also got way less episodes.

SomethingNew
SomethingNew

@Harmless_Venom

It's the most popular because the longest tv show used it during most of its run. After the Pink jacket series turned out to not be as successful, Red Jacket pretty much solidified its position as the standard look for Lupin. Pretty much every time another look is used, there's a specific reason for it.

Babylon had pink jacket since it was developed alongside the pink jacket tv show.

Cagliostro had the green jacket likely because by then Miyazaki still only had directed for the original series. Fuuma Clan also went green jacket since the designs were obviously based on Cagliostro. Fujiko Mine had Green Jacket because it's a prequel.

Return of Pycal has Green Jacket because it's a direct sequel to an episode of the original series, and the same goes to that one reunion special.

This new tv show with a blue jacket is really the first time since the Pink Jacket series where we might see a new standard look for Lupin introduced.

I notice Lupin's character model is drawn with a mean glare a lot in this show (including character sheets).

I hope it's not just a trick to make the show seem more mature, I want him to have some bite to his bark.

The one anime story I feel did the character complete justice was the prison escape from S1 and parts of Fujiko, to be honest. I hate how the anime has always neutered his immoral streak, such as his willingness to manipulate/backstab/kill his opponents.

I guess I'm saying I'd like a Jack Nicholson-esque portrayal of the character.

Lupin in the Red Jacket series generally still killed his opponents in those episodes where some famous killer went after him. There's even that one time he's almost killed by a cop and then spends the rest of the episode just making some weird acid bullet to kill the cop.

Although then in the next week you'd have him using bubblegum bullets and Zenigata claiming that Lupin never kills. The show just didn't bother with consistency.

This is true, although I'd say most Lupin dubs are decent. The Streamline, Manga UK, and Geneon dubs are all pretty alright in their own ways(although the Geneon dub of the Mamo movie is AWFUL), but shit like the AnimEigo dub of Fuma Conspiracy is the fucking pits.

Oh, and I actually really like that old English dub of the Mamo movie that was done in Japan by American expatriates. That might be an unpopular opinion but I think it's a solid dub all things considered.

The 1978 Mamo dub is generally acknowledged to be pretty good, though, ESPECIALLY considering how spirited the acting was for it's circumstances, with them just taking any random English speaker off the Tokyo streets. the VA of Lupin does a better job at being Lupin than Sonny Strait and some others at least, and I preferred that voice for Mamo over any of the other dubs.

I'd say make castle of calipstro your 3rd Lupin thing to watch. People say he's out of character but I disagree. That Lupin takes place 10 years after his immature shenanigan days. He's older, wiser, and more mature. He's become much smarter and more humble. It's more of the evolution of his chatacter. He's still Lupin, but he's grown to be more than just a petty theift. In my opinion CoC is a masterpiece and Myazaki's best film.

I will advice you to watch Lot's of Lupin after tht though because he is different in all the shows/films.

@cum2soon
Were you there for the private showing? As much as I can't stand Spidey Lupin, Jigen's replacement worked kinda well in the last VS Conan movie because he tried to sound like the early green jacket one. That said, I like some character in my dubs hope they don't go full Naruto to please the wannabe weeb crowds who will watch it subbed anyway. Zazà and other silly names were a result of the voice actors actually being into their characters and having fun, of course the script should stay accurate but if you take a too much literal approach actors don't really know how to deliver certain lines and that leaves you with these boring reading machines with zero personality and stock range.

Also, don't take my word as true, but the two months delay might actually meant they waited for the Japanese cast to voice the thing, so the Japanese track could be likely there with the Italian one. All it takes is a button and works with basically anything past the 90's.

It sounds anything BUT retarded, and that's not necessarily a good thing. I don't think he tries enough to get in character, he comes off as bland and generic compared to the previous actor. It's funny because this actor got famous among kids for dubbing 80's Spiderman, and since I'm autistic as fuck I can't help but picture Peter every time I hear the new Lupin but it can't be helped, HE DOES LITERALLY the same performance, didn't even come up with a different shtick for his Lupin character.

Everything in Lupin is episodic. They rarely ever connect to previous episodes or series, and when they do it's little more than fan service. Trying to piece together a canon for Lupin is really foolish. It was never planned that way.

Because Lupin III is on that list 2 times, Cagliostro's spot was replaced with Aikatsu.

Also LilPri was not that cheap due to Telecom's cost and it's not shit, it's a very good (but not great) show.

Gigastrength

@StonedTime
Thing is, that doesn't mean anything. It's "the whole world" but "the whole world" changes from story to story. Sometimes it's based on the real world, sometimes it's complete fantasy, and the whole thing is suspended in a magical time bubble where everything has advanced from the '70s to the modern day but the characters haven't aged a day. It's an entirely indefinite setting which bends to what the writers want.

Lupin III is also referenced in another Conan movie (name drop only) where he doesn't actually appear - and that reference is actually brought up again in the 2nd crossover (the movie, rather than tv special).

Although...
@TurtleCat

Sherlock Holmes III also appears in another Lupin episode later. And Sherlock Holmes also was canon to the original Arsene Lupin.

So, Conan is the one that's creating a plothole by acknowledging Lupin III after treating Sherlock Holmes as a fictional character.

It's alive because it's great enough to maintain popularity. It's timeless. Old isn't a bad thing especially when you can keep it fresh which it is. Even the new artstyle alone is refreshing because it actually looks different. 99% of anime nowadays looks exactly the same. With Lupin we get something that feels different and it's honestly wonderful.
