A TV series from Monkey Punch with a 1-hour premiere episode. Mankatsu will feature standard "Monkey characters" and ecchi-gags found in all Monkey Punch series.


Each episode is divided into Mini Stage lasting 15 minutes and Grand Stage lasting 30 minutes mixed with 60 second segments. The Lupin characters appear in small 60 second segments called The Lupin Gang however they are voiceless as it relies on visual gags, they also appear in the Mankatsu Monkey segments featuring a monkey that only says "Mankatsu".

Outside of Japan, the series only received a TV airing in Italy on the defunct satellite channel Cooltoon and received a DVD Box Set in France. It also received a Russian dub.
