Oh yes, so it is! Derp. What a very odd (but very cool) piece of merch. I'd love to see magazine when you get hold of it too!

I'd still love the top image as a poster though! :)

I most certainly will <3  If anything I am really, really disappointed in the lack of related merchandise for this series.  At the veeeery least, I would have liked a soundtrack as I quite enjoyed the music!  Even a proper maxi single for "Duty Friend."

Woo! Four volumes of the original manga are added to my collection as of today!

Now, i own 7 of the 14 volumes: 3, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 (The numbers in bold are the newly bought ones. I am not counting the one volume i have of WMW).
I'm halfway there, folks!

Often caught but never held for long, Lupin III brought the gentleman-thief into this century with his hi-tech antics and old-world charm.

Just got in "Lupin the 3rd MANGA Vol. 2" and "World's Most Wanted Vol. 3"

So I now have 8 Lupin mangas in total, which includes one volume in Japanese. Still not sure which volume it's supposed to be though.  ???

As I was in one of my favorite game stores, I was buying some old GameCube games, and I grabbed their business card, and saw they had a sister store next door called Spin Fusion, an anime store, when I turned it around I saw a large pic. of Lupin and Fujiko, standing side-by-side, hurried over to the store, and asked the clerk for the first volume of Lupin III, they were sold out... :( But, he ordered for me, and now I am forever grateful to them, in two to three days I shall own my very first physical item pertaining to Lupin ;D. Sadly I had to buy the used one for 15$ because the new one was 60+$.

So, I take it you don't do online shopping? Because you could be getting a few of the Lupin mangas on Amazon.com for $8 or less, that's including shipping. And you could get most of the films for around $12 or less, including shipping.

I agree it's exciting to see a physical store selling some form of Lupin material, but it's not necessary to get any of it from there.

Ya, I know you can find it cheaper online, but I don't know, I never liked it, unless it's something real big.

And, even though this is probably the only Lupin manga I'm going to buy, I have a quick question. I know it's very lewd, with drugs, alcohol, swearing, and sex, but before I read it, how visible is the nudity, is their complete frontal nudity?

Wow just wow ,  depending on which manga incarnation you're buying .  (Im still floored that you're a member of the board who has never  bought a Lupin merch before)  There was a early 2000 manga with a new artist , and that is closer in style to TV specials like First Contact ,


and then there are Lupin manga by Monkey Punch , which is closer in art style to Mystery of Mamo , Mankatsu , ect.  It's art is very cartoonish , loose suggestions of anatomy , harmless  and jokey in style....

 So the question is are you ordering the 2000 version (newer) or reprints of Monkey Punch stuff ?  My opinion is biased as an artist who drew figures from PlayBoy magazine ,  all the nudity is female topless or bare butts of Lupin males ,  depending on the manga version you bought , it could hardly be called "porn" , if you have seen a Woman Named Fujiko Mine , you know what to expect.

First off, thanks for the reply, I shock myself never having bought anything Lupin related, but I bought the Monkey Punch Reprint. (And I have seen Mine Fujiko.)

Fujiko notebook.

Edit: Via @40thlupin3 , Fujiko ring for sale8)

Edit 2: If you were lucky to go to Anifest, you might've snagged a Fujiko poster signed by Yamamoto. Thanks to @FUNimation and @aicnanime for the tip.

Last week I found this movie poster on Ebay:



It's the poster made in 1984 for the theatrical release ''Die J
But why Miyazaki was so obsessed to draw this horrible fringle to Jigen in EVERY Lupin anime he did?

I decided to strike for the recognition of Jigen, Goemon and Fujiko's sacrifice in The Castle of Cagliostro

Via Ulrika and @yukilup, Lupin's a real doll, er, mannequin.
