Lupin III Pilot Movie in Widescreen?
« on: September 12, 2008, 07:39:45 pm »
I'm sure some of you have heard (and maybe even seen) the Lupin III animated pilot made for Japanese tv back in 1969. There's a rumor that there's two versions of this pilot, one of them available subbed at Anime Suki. Thanks to a Japanese fan on Youtube, the second version of the pilot (which is in widescreen with better animation) can be viewed here:

Oh, yes, quite true. In fact, on the Secret Files OAV (when the Pilot Film was first put on home video in Japan), both versions are included. I actually have a VHS fansub of that version of Secret Files. The WS and FS versions differ in voice cast, color, narration, and some background elements and their framing.

By the by, welcome to the forums. Love the avatar, too, where'd you get yours from? I've only seen that picture on the surface of Disc 2 on the Japanese 2001 DVD release of Cagliostro....although I'm sure it's from somewhere else, too.

Thanks! Actually, it's a scan from a promotional postcard for Castle of Cagliostro that I saw online. I really liked the image so I made it into my icon for the forums.
