CrunchyRoll lists top ten Lupin III episodes

10 Zenigata's Pride and the Desert Dust (Lupin Part 5)
9 The Border is the Face of Farewell (Red Jacket)
8 Until the Full Moon Passes (Blue Jacket)
7 Lupin Dies Twice (Red Jacket)
6 The Woman the Old Men Fell in Love With (Red Jacket)
5 A Wolf Calls a Wolf (Green Jacket)
4 Once Chance to Break Out (Green Jacket)
3 The End of Lupin (Blue Jacket)
2 Farewell My Beloved Lupin (Red Jacket)
1 Wings of Death (Red Jacket)

I haven't seen all of Lupin, but I think the list is fine.

It's a testament to the Red Jacket series and Hayao Miyazaki's work that it's taken up half the list. I feel that the Pink Jacket or the Fujiko Mine series episodes deserved a shot too though. Also, two episodes have the same plot (Lupin in prison, Zenigata frets) and it's too early to put a Part 5 episode on the list.

The writer calls Green Jacket 7 Goemon's intro episode, which makes me wonder if she knows the franchise well enough to be writing a list like this. I can't really argue with the list, though, lots of solid episodes.

I would change a few episodes, but not a terrible list.

Decent list, but obviously the best episode of Part I was "Killer Sings the Blues" and Part IV's was "Dragon Sleeps Soundly".  ;D

Agreed "Killer Sings the Blues" was the best episode of part one. I was highly disappointed  when Poon did not show up in A Woman Called Fujiko Mine it was a huge missed opportunity.
