Episode 0 of Lupin III: Part 6 series.


This special is the final episode that Kiyoshi Kobayashi did as the voice of Daisuke Jigen prior to his retirement, having voiced the character for 52 years, starting with the original pilot film from 1969. It acts as a final send off for the voice actor for his long years of having done the character.

Kiyoshi Kobayashi is retiring from his role as Daisuke Jigen after 52 years. This episode was an amazing tribute to him and I honestly cried a little. We had a very good participation of the main cast, with the focus on Jigen's life and his point of view on the world around him. It really felt like it was the seiyuu himself saying his goodbyes to the character. I will miss this man a lot since I'm a big fan of the series.

Let’s welcome Akio Ootsuka who is the perfect man to fill in the big shoes with part 6!

I've watched almost all of Lupin III seasons and films over the years and I'm happy that over 50 years since the original Pilot film from 1969 it still gets a lot of love and attention. It really shows what a masterpiece the legendary Monkey Punch came up with.

This Special has two purposes: being an appetizer for the upcoming 6th Season of Lupin III and giving a special send off to Kobayashi Kiyoshi. Kiyoshi has been voicing Jigen ever since the 1969 pilot and this was his last contribution to this legendary franchise. In fact, of the original cast he was the last one standing. ...

Temper your expectations, because this isn't exactly the grandiose send-off that it could have been.

Labeled as "Episode 0", this is effectively a special prelude to Part 6 to commemorate the retirement of OG Jigen voice actor Kiyoshi Kobayashi. With the weight of a 50 year history with the character on its shoulders, you'd certainly hope for this production to provide something truly special. Its important to recognize however, that that's simply not what this is. At best, this is a perfectly "okay" Lupin episode that operates as a loose tribute mostly from behind the scenes. There's not necessarily a whole lot wrong with it, ...
