Another Stories: Destiny's Turning Points is an NHK documentary series that focuses on major world events and developments, reconstructing specific points in time that led to the end point we know. Previous specials have covered the fall of the Berlin Wall, the death and mourning of Princess Diana, and Beatlemania.

In the wake of Kazuhiko Kato's passing, Another Stories has gathered together voice actors, editors, directors and many others to tell Lupin's multifaced history.

Appearng in interviews on this special are:
- Michiko Hara: First editor of Manga Action, where Lupin the 3rd first ran
- Baron Yoshimoto: Another creator at Manga Action, who saw Monkey Punch as a friend and professional rival
- Masaaki Osumi: The first director of Lupin the 3rd
- Yasuo Otsuka: Character designer and animation director for Castle of Cagliostro
- Kanichi Kurita, Lupin's current voice actor

This sounds interesting.

Yep, already posted in links, but here’s the teaser trailer with Otsuka and even Takahata cameo. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0gfRt_BiDyo

Edit: My bad. This is a link for a different doc.

Seeing Takahata in this is nice and unexpected. It's nice that Lupin was something special to him that he could do this before he passed on.
