Once again, Lupin takes the stage in easily my favorite Lupin film that isn't directed by Hayao Miyazaki (The Castle of Cagliostro).

Lupin the Third: The First (yes, it is a very confusing title) is a typical Lupin movie through and through with just a single new addition, it is in CGI. Not just any regular anime CGI, Hollywood level CGI. Disney/Dreamworks level CGI. The animation itself made this movie better than most of its Lupin counterparts, but the story has a couple of extra things that made this installment stand out among its peers (besides for the CGI).

First off, the story: Classic Lupin story, read more

Unless you have a hate boner for any kind of CGI, Lupin III: The First is a treat for all Lupin fans and a nice movie even if you aren't interested in Lupin that much.

Apart from short Lupin III 3DCG special, this is the first time Lupin has been animated in full 3D and boy I'm really pleased with the result. The animation is fluid and detailed, and it really makes the action scenes shine. The character design was translated into 3D perfectly and respectful to the original (though not without any change. I'm especially a fan of the movie look of Jigen, albeit I'm read more

I can't believe how cool this looks.

After waiting for some while I finally got to watch this but since it was fansubbed there were many hilarious mistranslations here and there. Gotta give the studio props since this cg looks fantastic. It is like the level of Pixar or Dreamworks. It is smooth and looks and feels quite nice. Of course I thing Lupins artstyle works well as CG anime. It isn't overly anime looking so it works, it is like some cartoon artstyle.

I've watched all of Lupin III's seasons and a lot of the movies, OVAs, specials and so on. 50 years old and Lupin and his gang still get a lot of love and attention. I love it!

Animation:
1) the style reminds me of Shrek so it took me a bit to get used to how the characters look, particularly Zenigata, Lupin and Jigen. One thing that helped me like the style for Lupin and Jigen is understand that in the Lupin III's timeline this had to be one of the first adventures because SPOILER: age-wise, Hitler could still be alive. So, Lupin and Jigen read more
