Lupin is the main character in this series which takes place in Italy and San Marino.

Reflecting its setting, the anime debuted in Italy before it aired in Japan. Lupin III fans will note that the titular thief now dons a blue coat, following his earlier appearances in green (first series and some OVAs), red (the second series as well as most films and television specials) and pink (third series).

Lupin III (2015) first aired in Italy in August of 2015, more than a month before airing in Japan.

Honestly I have never seen any of the previous Lupin the thirds, but I can tell you this anime is absolutely stunning. Something I looked forward to every week, when it was airing.

Story: 9
The anime jumps from its one episode driven story to its overarching italian dream story. I enjoyed every single solo episode, thrilling, exciting, and overall masterpieces for style and the audacity Lupin brings to the table. When Lupin wasn't present, the characters still shined with their own unique personalities. Each episode had a small storyline or mystery to solve, and Lupin pretty much owned the stage every episode he was in. The read more

Lupin is like a goldmine of potential when you’re fanatic of adventure. Taking place in the country of Italy with a diverse cultural background, the series invites anyone who is interested in a journey filled with daring risks. I’d like to see this series not just as a revisit of the franchise but also a show that recreates adventure as a whole. Lupin III (also known as Lupin the Third) is a series that is easily recommendable for anyone but those who is interested in adventure will be in for a big treat.

It’s truly like a miracle. The show takes place in the refreshing country read more

Honestly Lupin III is a classic! The storyline and characters are really something. Lupin is a master thief but also a gentleman at heart. The storyline is clever and the endings are always unexpected each episode. Many anime have used Lupin as inspiration, heck Scooby Doo spent ages using Lupin III as inspiration. Lupin III pretty much has all my boxes ticked. Loveable main characters, loveable opposing characters and storylines that will take unexpected turns. Lupin is a huge and important anime in Japan and it should get much more attention outside the homeland. It’s like going back in time and seeing the history of read more

Well, where do we start off? Let me just write as much as I can about this gorgeous series. Just before I begin rambling about why this anime is absolutely amazing, I would like to state that I may be a bit bias as this is one of my, if not, favourite anime series.

First of all, comes the story. Its plot being led by Lupin and his team is very unique. It focuses on one main arch, in this case, it'll be Italy. Between each episode is a completely different, new, unique story, while also being linked to the main arch. Furthermore, the mystery read more
