TL;DR: this anime show exactly what you should do if you want to fail.

Lupin VIII is the adventure of the 8th generation of Lupin. Because this pilot was juste a pilot, there aren't voices. But that's not a real problem.
You need first to know that this anime was a collobaration between the Japanese studio and... a French studio.
First error: going on the Land of Arsène Lupin where copyrights would not let you do whatever you want.

The history is a total change of Lupin. All the characters were "Westerned" for fitting the "Western Audience". For an anime which already was quite "good" in that regard.
