Lupin The Third DVD box set for part II

Produced by the Japanese animation studio Tokyo Movie Shinsha, Lupin the Third Part II is the second Lupin III television series, with the first airing between October 24, 1971 and March 26, 1972. The series contains 155 episodes which aired between October 3, 1977 and October 6, 1980 on the Japanese television network NTV (Nippon Television).[1] Episodes 145 and 155 were the first to appear in the United States on VHS, released by Streamline Pictures under the title Lupin III's Greatest Capers. Two feature films, The Mystery of Mamo and The Castle of Cagliostro, were released in theaters during the original broadcast run of the series. Twenty-six episodes of Geneon Entertainment's English adaptation of the anime aired on Adult Swim starting on Monday, January 13, 2003 (January 14, technically, since it premiered at midnight). Episodes 1–27 were broadcast on the channel, with the exception of episode 3.[2][3] 15 Region 1 DVD volumes (a total of 79 episodes) have been released in the United States by Geneon Entertainment. Richard Epcar, the voice of Jigen revealed via Twitter that Geneon lost the license to the series before they could dub the rest of the episodes in English.[4] In December 2015, Discotek Media announced it had licensed the show and would be releasing the Second Series in four DVD sets with the first one coming in 2016.

The series, based on the Lupin III manga written by Monkey Punch beginning in 1967,[5] centers on the adventures of Arsène Lupin III, the grandson of Arsène Lupin, the gentleman thief of Maurice Leblanc's series of novels. He is joined by Daisuke Jigen, crack-shot and Lupin's closest ally; Fujiko Mine, the femme fatale and Lupin's love interest who works against Lupin more often than with him; and Goemon Ishikawa XIII, a master swordsman and the descendant of Ishikawa Goemon, the legendary Japanese bandit. Lupin is often chased by Inspector Koichi Zenigata, the rather cynical detective who has made it his life mission to catch Lupin.[1]

Season 1[edit]

The first season ran from October 3, 1977 to April 3, 1978 and can be distinguished from the other three by the different opening and ending themes. The opening theme for season one of Lupin III Part II is Theme from Lupin III '78 by Yuji Ohno, while the ending theme is the instrumental version of Love Theme, also by Yuji Ohno.[1]

Note: "English titles" are those found on the Region 1 DVD release by Pioneer/Geneon Entertainment. Episodes 1-26 were broadcast on Adult Swim, with the exception of episode 3[6][7]

Season 4[edit]

The fourth and final season ran from October 8, 1979 to October 6, 1980 and can be distinguished from the other three by the different opening and ending themes. The opening theme for season four of Lupin III Part II is Theme from Lupin III '80 by Yuji Ohno, while the ending theme is Love Is Everything by Noboru Kimura.[1]

Episodes 145 and 155 in this season are notable for being directed by Hayao Miyazaki under the pseudonym of Teruki Tsutomu. Those two episodes marked his final involvement in making television animation before exclusively working on feature films.[12][13][14][15] These two episodes were also dubbed into English by Streamline Pictures and released to VHS in North America.


Note: "English titles" are those found on the Crunchyroll streaming broadcast of the series, with alternate titles for episodes 145 and 155 coming from Streamline Pictures' VHS release of "Lupin III's Greatest Capers".
