Personally, I think it's weird seeing a Lupin-like character with spiked hair. I wonder if that's a response to Hunter x Hunter's Leorio.

Considering HxH's popularity in Japan that may or may not be correct. I think there are probably 10 other places it could be a reference to though GATSU.

Also yay! I didn't know we had another Hunter x Hunter fan on here other than me!  ;D

Who doesn't like Hunter x Hunter? :P

Togashi's work is amazing!

I'm not a fan, but I dig Togashi's other work. But yeah, all I could think of from the get-go was that Leorio was Lupin-inspired. Though I guess in this case, he wears Vash's sunglasses for legal reasons.  :P

I love this news, I also love how random and unexpected anime news can be. We've got a new series with a guy that looks like Lupin with a beard doing heroic thievery in feudal Japan? SOLD.  ;D

That lady character in the show reminds too much of Fujiko for me.
This is a good thing though, yessir.

I saw the preview with the VA's narration, and I still can't picture the Roman character speak in Kazuya Nakai's voice at all, until I watch the show.
Roman's voice sounds awakward to me so far. Probably the voice reminds too much of Zoro from One Piece. It also took me some time to get used to
his voice as Hijikata in Gintama.

BTW, isn't this the first non-Lupin MonkeyPunch anime since Cinderella Boy?

The animation is better than I though it would be since this is based on a Pachinko game. Would this be on par with a Lupin TV special?

Goddamn licencing limitations. Hopefully a fansub group picks it up for people who aren't blessed with a US residence.
