Thanks for the clip, Timefox!

We had a couple of stills from the opening posted two posts before you, FYI, but getting the video was nice.

It's like Lupin, except it's called Leo.   :P

In the anime Gintama, which sometimes makes very obvious references to other famous anime shows,
a new arc that recently started introduced a character who is an obvious Mine Fujiko-esque character called Fumiko.
It's so obvious that the main character calls her "Mine Fujiko knockoff!"
She still has not shown what she's capable of, except that she comes out as a bit slutty, which kinda comes out as hilarious in the show.
Check out the most recent opening of the show, at the following link. Fumiko appears at 0:55.

Apparently, this guy takes Goemon cosplay a little too seriously. Start at 6:27. Thanks to @debaoki for the link.

If the new Saints Row didn't have Professor Genki, I would think it's just coincidence that they chose to subtitle it "The Third". But maybe I'm wrong? And this movie premise seems a bit Lupin-esque.

Gillian Gorfil's script follows a small-time criminal who partners with a female thief to pull off a daring diamond heist.  ::)

Also, apparently, there are "Goemon baths" in Japan, if Itazura Na Kiss 7 is any indication.

I can't remember if this was mentioned before, but one in Sgt. Frog of Lupin and Jigen--a pretty detailed one, too. I'll post it on YouTube soon. : )
Interresting, I'd like to see that. And I thought there were only Evangelion references in that series (wasn't that whole series an hommage to Evangelion? I think they even got the original seiyuu for Kaworu for one of the main (?) characters.).

SGT Frog is a parody of Eeeeverything man ! Sailormoon, Space Cobra, Gundam, Evangelion, You name it they probably did the sendup of it, just dont miss out on watching that show in english it's hilarios and I really need to watch my DVDs again but trust me the show will appeal to you.

In the second issue of UDON's Street Fighter II Turbo comic series, a familar face (and jacket) is seen in a crowd of people listening to Bison's message:

Bakuman 10 has a potential manga subplot about breaking in a safe and leaving a note.

Sure, Zenigata could never stop Lupin's career for good. But the Punisher, on the other hand... Since this is a Punisher comic, there's no points for guessing what happens to "Jourdan III" and his gang.

EDIT: Props to the artist and writer for making a reference to Lupin III in an American comic book...in 1988. How's that for obscurity?
