The Italian setting was a great choice
« on: September 06, 2016, 05:12:13 PM »
When I heard the show would be set in Italy I had mixed feelings; I thought it would be a great setting for Lupin's adventures, but I felt that France would be a better choice since Lupin is part French.

But it turned out great. Europe has a great balance of old-world and new-world locations, and Italy was just as good a location as France or Spain or England. And Italy is the home of the Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci, who was a great choice of character to use against Lupin.

Plus Italians are the number one fans of Lupin III in Europe. ;) The franchise and the country have a long history together.
Plus, the series made good use of many aspects (including the less pleasing ones like the Mafia, sport machination, corruption, rich filthy people, scammers, poor hospitals and more) of this country. That was a bold and creative choice. ^^
Time to play the game, time to get a chance !
