Synopsis

Yasuo works at a ramen restaurant and is dating the pretty news reporter Yukiko. However, things aren't going well for him financially and after a customer leaves a green jacket behind, Yasuo starts adding to his income by walking the crowded streets of the Tokyo metroplex and stealing people's wallets. With this, he's able to buy his girlfriend a nice ring even though she says he didn't need to buy this for her.
Over time, Yasuo becomes obsessed with becoming Lupin to the point that he reads and watches everything regarding him, he even works with Jigen for a time.

However, when Yasuo learns of the Ice Cube diamond, he knows that if he can steal this, he will be the real Lupin.

So far, the worst Lupin III piece of work i ever watched. This movie despite being one hour long makes no freaking sense, there are a lot of plot points that are never explained, is really rushed and to add salt to the wound the only character that matters in this movie is Lupin himself as no one does something remotely interesting or significant to the plot, the major failure and cock-tease of this blasphemous pseudo-Lupin piece of shit is the title itself, there's no "Red vs. Green" to talk about, it never happens, heck, the entire conflict is never explained, it looks like just read more

Awful! Man, these new ones are really getting on my last nerve. This one especially reached new heights in lame. Its like someone thought up half of a decent story, added the name "Lupin" to it, took out the decent parts of the story, and added some insipid social commentary. Listen, If you're a Lupin fan at all, just stay away. Aside from Return of Pycal and the Bimbos on Parade OVA from a couple years back, there has never been a Lupin flick quite this terrible.

Plot. Like I mentioned before, it seemed like someone had a good idea for Lupin, but the execution was read more

Green vs. Red is an interesting anime.

This OVA celebrates the 40th anniversary of Lupin, and it includes a bunch of nods to previous Lupin anime. Pretty much every criminal on the planet has taken to disguising themselves as Lupin, and we end up seeing pretty much every Lupin character design used, even the pink jacket.

A new main character for this is a guy named Yasuo, named after Lupin's original voice actor, who looks just like Lupin and wears a green jacket.

Meanwhile, the real Lupin in the red jacket and his partner Jigen are doing their thing as always. They're on the run, all sorts read more

The story is all over the place. After the second watch I kind of get the narrative and it's not linear at all, it really hurts my brain... My best attempt of telling what time did a certain scene happen is by checking whether Green's girlfriend (or maybe ex) has the ring he gave her.

And some of the side-story really has noting to do with the plot,for example: the entirety of Logan's plot line can be cut out easily.

In the end I kind of get what the director/writers wanted to do with this film. And I don't really like what they wanted to say. read more
