This is just---priceless. Sometimes you found on Pixiv brilliant comics just like this one (you need to be logged in Pixiv before you can see anything from there). Lupin trying to steal from SOS Brigade... well this will be continued.

Otemae University placed a giant picture of Lupin on a wall next to Shukugawa station. It's an attempt to replicate the Moomin boom* and create some sort of buzz among the people to look at Lupin, think hard, feel inspired and do something great in the time of low birthrates and what not.

*I had to look this up because this made no sense to me at first. Apparently there is a Swedish cartoon animal (...? kinda looks like a cow I dunno) that became the mascot of a big supermarket chain in Japan. It was plastered everywhere and Moomin became a bit of a craze that got a little out of hand.


And I don't know if it's just me but it feels that they're suggesting that students partake in certain Lupin-esque activities that can be associated with increasing the birthrate.............. I mean why else would you throw that sentence in there? I know it's a serious issue that pops up in everything but it's just a bit odd...

Fun tidbit for you all though: Monkey Punch holds bi-monthly lectures and teaches aspiring cartoonists at Otemae.

Actually, I think that one is a first for the board. I seem to remember one in reverse, though, of Bebop characters to the Lupin OP theme....

Here's another custom LittleBigPlanet level themed after Lupin III. I'm guessing this one puts you in the role of a lackey or an apprentice towards the Lupin gang as you help them rob a bank. There are a few Lupin-themed collectable objects hidden as well.
The level is entirely in French, though.

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.

There's a very 'sweded' quality to it, I love it!
The shot of the grapes get thrown in the air was hilarious! Just thinking of them filming this makes me laugh! lol
