This week I have one for fans of the Lupin III stories, actually a very early Lupin III adaptation. At the time it had been made only the first TV series had been broadcast with Goemon as a very minor character and none of the animated features existed. Speaking of the first series Discotek, has announced they will release the first season of the Lupin III TV series in 2012 in the US. Up to now all we had was a few episodes on VHS and re-dubbed only.
In any case this week I recommend:
- Lupin The Third: Strange Psychokinetic Strategy
- Director: Tsuboshima Takashi
- Screenplay: Nagano Hiroshi
- Based on a work by: Monkey Punch
