It's more like at 2:00, I had to skim because that guy has next to no personality for an interweb famousguy. Also, kinda jerkish.

That Lupin actor looks like Ranga Yogeshwar, a TV host from Germany.

Cute for a fan trailer, but trying to adapt cartoon sensibilities is the wrong direction.  :-\

The problem is the lack of adaptation - they're trying to get the real-life actors to BE the cartoon characters. Agreed on the "wrong direction" observation, but I'm sure it would still be a fun romp to sit through once. Wasn't the fan-movie based on Zelda: Ocarina of Time pretty awful, in part anyway, because it was almost completely unfaithful to the game's storyline?

Sometimes I wish my Lupin news feed had some more interesting stuff in it rather than just Pachinko news. Never bothered to read one until now, but it turns out that those endless streams of Pachinko brouhaha were actually a good thing.

The newest Lupin III pachinko machine ("Lupin III Lupin Family Treasures") turned out to be a runaway hit and brought in well over its anticipated revenues. No specific numbers, but it was expected to earn 9.2 billion yen ($112 million USD) and it surpassed that.

Imagine the royalties MP receives on those machines... and I thought Oda was rich.

Linklinklink. PS. Link.

Oh, yeah, adaptation is more about reallocating the parts that work while preserving what makes them integral to a story and/or "feeling" of the original. Like that new Sherlock Holmes show on the Beeb. It's got a modern day setting but uses new devices to tell the same story, albeit sometimes hammily [Sherlock Holmes on Twitter! Iraq-War Watson!].  Makes me wonder about what kind of stuff they'd switch around in a Lupin movie. They'd probably stick Guy Ritchie directing and we'd get Brad Pitt in a fedora or something.

Wait..are you saying you didn't join the fandom because of your undying love for pachinko and pachi-slot? Get out.

Good on him

According to this article, during all the seasonal university entrance buzz Monkey Punch recently noted that Lupin was admitted into Toudai. He was an undergrad in what I believe says medical engineering. Whether he actually graduated or dropped out is unknown.

Note: Toudai along with Keio are the equivalents of the top Ivy League colleges.

Via @aicnanime , French dub of Fire Treasure here8) Technically a mixed anime AMV, but I liked how they used CoC for ELO's Let it Run. This is more of a political comment, but what better way to celebrate Cagliostro for free then to hear Madoff tell you the whole system is rigged;D Lupin the Edgar Wright in Tokyo for Scott Pilgrim premiere snap-shot.
