This was a suggestion for review by Alexander, over at Freaks and Fiends. Indeed this wasn’t the first review suggestion by Alexander (and the other is queued in the ‘to watch’ pile) and I’d like to offer sincere thanks for the suggestions.
Lupin the Third was a manga that became anime and was the brainchild of Monkey Punch. It concentrated on Arsène Lupin the third, genius thief and grandson of Maurice Leblanc’s gentleman thief Arsène Lupin (copyright, at the time the series first aired, be damned). In the anime Lupin is aided by the marksman Daisuke Jigen and the swordsman Goemon Ishikawa XIII and sometimes the femme fatale character Fujiko Mine, who also serves as a love interest. He is hunted by the policeman Inspector Koichi Zenigata.
