Funny stories including crime, sex, samurai, spies, detectives, assassins, shady persons, con men, crazy scientists and other fun stuff? This is the not very known Anime Mankatsu or Monkey Punch Manga Katsudou Dai Shashin in its long title.

As a little disclaimer: If you don't like Ecchi stay away from this. This Anime is filled with very explicit content and full of gags related to this matter.

Regarding the appearance of Lupin the III and his gang: Yes in every episode we have some short gags with Lupin the III and a few cameos in the stories. But all of them are - mute - and read more

If you're into comedic series that are nothing but a couple of separate short stories per episode, both series are a must. A fair word of warning though, as they also both contain some pretty suggestive humor, Mankatsu more so than Gag Manga Biyori. However, if you liked the one, you're surely gonna enjoy the other.
Both are Monkey Punch's works, and have the same feeling to them.
The Lupin characters appear many times in the Mankatsu shorts.
