I am surprised no one has written a review of this anime yet. Its kind of intimidating being the first one to write a review about a classic Anime like Lupin the third Part 2.

Well lets get onto the review.The plot is about the adventures of famous thief lupin the third and his partners Jigen ( one of the best marksman in the world) Goemon (the samurai and thief that can even cut steel) And Fujiko ( a beautiful thief spy who often betrays Lupin and his partners) There is no real overall story just like Lupin Part 1 its basically episodic unless there is read more

This is a classic that any anime fan should see. In my opinion, this is the jumping off point for Lupin. Watch this series fist! When I was first alerted to the Lupin franchise, it was through this series on Adult Swim's late LATE block. They seemed almost awkward about showing this, like, "Here you go. It looks kind of funny, but it's hilarious. Could you maybe watch it? You know, if that's ok with you. I'll just leave it here where it won't bother you..."

A friend told me to watch it and I rolled my eyes. I was iffy about it based on read more

I really, really love Lupin III. I'm definitely a biased reviewer, because Lupin is my favorite anime franchise out of everything I've seen, but I really can't express how much I adore it. Red jacket can really be considered the essence of the Lupin franchise, and is often the one that people think of when anyone says Lupin.

Story: 10
Personally I'm a big fan of episodic type shows, and that's definitely what Lupin is. The story isn't always captivating or original, because after 155 episodes it becomes impossible to not reuse the same gags, but I really enjoy it just because of the fun, read more

Much like Part I of Lupin, Part II is Lupin and the gang stealing a variety of items from all over the world all while being chased by Inspector Zenigata.

Compared to part I, this Lupin is more family fun oriented. Meaning, more comedy, less violence relating to murder, and more heists focused on "operation-based" stealing. The art and sound has significantly improved to the prequel, which has held up today. Our man Miyazaki played a role in a number of episodes relating to directing, art, and background art.

Naturally being an episodic anime, some episodes are better than others. It isn't until episode 50 where read more

In Anime, there exists a few great works that structured the road and pioneered the way for those who came after them. Lupin the 3rd is one of those works.

Starting the grandson of the first Lupin, Lupin the 3rd. Known all around the world for his thieving skills, charismatic personality, and monkey face.
His gang of The marksman Gigen, the samurai Goemon, and the charming cat-thief Fujiko all link together for what to be a humorous set of adventures.
The plot mostly consist of single-case episodes. Familiar faces pops-up every once a while, like Detective Zenigata, whose sole purpose in life is see Lupin behind bars.
The series read more

After completing the first series which I enjoyed pretty much I immediately started watching this second one. And it really began good. Great episodes like their stay in Rio or the adventure with Nessie in Loch Ness, Scotland, are what I now simply call "classic".
The problem with this series, though, is, that the episodes don't relate to each other. Ok, just watching one parter again and again can be fun, if you have to watch 155 episodes, though, it can be really annyoing (I'm a Lupin fan ever since I watched some of the 90's films, so dropping was no option for me). read more

Also known as the Red Jacket Series, this second Lupin III TV anime appeared to combine elements of the manga with elements that were incorporated into the second half of the first series. Lupin's gang will steal from those who can take the loss and are either a criminal or some corrupt influential figure in society and will only resort to killing as a last resort or against criminals worst than they are. Fujiko making use of her body to get what she wants and Lupin's perversion are back, though these elements are somewhat toned down. Zenigata appeared to get the biggest shafting in this read more
