^lol! The "Fujiko is That Girl." link is my very first AMV video. *sigh* Good times, good times... Too bad it was very amatuerish, though. xD It was on my original account as the very first video I ever made on there, but got deleted a year afterwards in 2008. So I re-uploaded it on a different account (hence the name, 'Fujikogirl23' under the video description)


But what I really came here for was to show you guys this AWESOME Lupin III 2nd TV series theme....

SEGA Genesis style.  8)

@Honnyaku_blog found some Koike Lupin line corrections from A Woman Named Fujiko8)

Edit: That's a poster of Mamo I haven't seen before. Slightly NSFW.

Edit 2: Clip of Monkey Punch making sketches of all the Lupin characters.

Now besides getting that Monkey Punch cover of a Harry Harrison novel, getting sketches of the Lupin characters by Monkey Punch himself... would be the coolest thing ever. I don't care if I'd have to pay him $100 buck each, I would gladly do it. ;D

Goemon spliced into a Suntory ad.

Edit: The most unknown facts and trivia about Lupin.

Edit 2: Unsurprisingly, Lupin pics at TMS's Tokyo Anime Fair booth.

I'd love to have that cardboard cutout of Lupin. It's a really cool shot of him.

I liked that trivia link about Lupin!

I remember in the manga reading the story where Lupin and Zenigata were at university together. I can't imagine that Zenigata is really "3 years older than Lupin", I always thought that university plot was a one-off story arc.

For some reason I like the idea that Lupin has (at least part of) a college degree, though!

You can pretty much say this about any material in Lupin. There is very little consistency between not only the different projects, but even chapter to chapter in Monkey Punch's own Manga.

Following some sources, Monkey Punch might have said Lupin III attended Todai (the japanese equivalent of Boston).

And Gozar: You're totally right ! Even the introduction of Jigen and his relationship with Lupin is told numerous times, each time different.
Time to play the game, time to get a chance !

That's true. Zenigata could at least be a decade older than Lupin, but I personally think he's old enough to be Lupin's father.

I personally put Pops about 15 years older than Lupin.

So I guess this is Nabeshin's official Facebook, I think.

This is barely related, but looks like someone's trying to get that damned birthday song shifted into public domain. As people who saw the Geneon release of the red jacket Lupin remember, they shortened that song in one of the episodes. Thanks to @fschodt for the info.

Edit: @Aicnanime, @gen_ghibli, and @lmonplata spotted this Cagliostro sketch.

Edit 2: Framed Monkey Punch Lupin sketch.

Awwww, that Cagliostro sketch is adorable.  ;D
That would be so awesome to put on a Cagliostro puppet show.

I wonder how much these gold bars are worth?  :P
