Slightly Biased Manga's review of "Lupin III"
I found this quite some time ago, but it's still a fun read.  Aside from the rarely-updated site run by yours truly, this is the only place I've found on the net that reviews Lupin manga.  In particular, the entire first series, volume by volume.

Ha, neat. My curious friend and I gave this game a spin some months ago, and we didn't find it very entertaining. It's particularly sad that when you do get the chance to have Jigen and Goemon tag around as a helpful partner, they vanish as soon as you move from floor to floor (or, if they suddenly move into a pit/grey space by themselves :/). Well, at least the sprites are cute. It's nice seeing a little review of the game, even if it wasn't anything addictive or super-memorable.

Lupin will look up and shout, "Save us, plot-device!", and I'll look down and whisper, "No".

Never heard of them, but Fantastic Plastic Machine Lupin theme remix.
New fandub.
Lupin the skat.
Fan AS promo.
Never heard of 'em but Kumoricon cover.
A-holes took down the Gintama one with Lupin music, though. -_-
But there's an official spoof of the series;D

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.

Goemon has his own 'float'. I am highly amused, having absolutely no idea what this event is about, or rather, what brought it about. In the case that it is something silly that was held just for fun, you have to admire the fact that it actually drew a bit of a crowd. :)

Wow, that giant Goemon is awesome. The life size Gundam statue in Japan was pretty cool too, I like this trend. ;D

Let's see -- stolen helicopter, explosives used to breach building, thieves slide in on ropes, pursuit diverted by dummy bomb and tire-damage bars on road--and no casualties. Maybe it's a little scary that this happened for reals, but I would be lying if I didn't say a part of me was going "Whoa! Effin' rad!"

Not quite sure what this is, but it looks like two comedians dressed as Anime characters and they have to sing the theme songs for the series their character is from. Possibly an old variety show...?

Lupin the MSX2. Lupin the Haddaway. Lupin the fireworks show. Another orchestra cover. One with animation in the background. Lucky Italian kids who got their own version of that last PS2 game.
