Title: Lupin References/homages
Post by: mc_carter on July 18, 2008, 01:43:12 AM
I recently watched the third episode of Here Is Greenwood it featured not only the castle from Cagliostro but a play put on by the students of the clock tower scene. I took some screen caps.

Which got me thinking what are some other anime/cartoons that feature Lupin references I know there was a thread about Samurai Jack and one about Robotech/Macross. But I thought it might be good to centralize it and if one already exists, sorry.

Wow, I've never seen that reference before. The only one I can think of now is the Simpsons Movie having a scene early on where Homer's staging on the roof is based on that of Lupin's in CoC's when he's leaping from rooftop to rooftop.

Fooly Cooly episode 5.  Kamon dresses as Lupin and rambles about jacket color, then spoofs the 2nd series opening.

Speaking of the simpsons, in a season eight episode, Bart After Dark, the one where Bart has to work at a burlesque house. There is a scene where Bart is falling down a roof that looks a bit like in CoC that even the people in the audio commentary even mention about.

The fight in the clock-tower at the end of The Great Mouse Detective looks quite a bit like Cagliostro's clock battle.

There's also a clock tower battle in Batman: the Animated Series between Batman and the Clock King that was clearly inspired by the one in CoC.

Wikipedia mentions a reference to Jigen in an episode of Animaniacs... but I wouldn't know personally, as I couldn't stand that show as a kid. *Wonders if opinion would change now, many years later*

An homage to Jigen is in fact in Animaniacs. Here's a shot of it.

There's a reference to Lupin's granddad(referred to as "Kaitoo Lupin", meaning Lupin the Phantom Thief a.k.a. the original Arsene Lupin) in episode 2 of Fist of the North Star, "The Deadly Fist of Lingering Regret! The Future is Sighted in the Barren Desert":

As I've mentioned in other topics, Tomo in Azumanga Daioh is apparently a big Lupin fan, judging by her Fujiko-like yell of "Lupin!" in a dream sequence, as well as her stated desire to grow her hair out for a Fujiko-like look, (http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a335/DrFurball/tomofujiko.png) and expressing an interest in joining the ICPO after graduating.

Also, Teen Titans homages the famous hillside car chase of Cagliostro (http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a335/DrFurball/lupinhomage.jpg) in the episode "Car Trouble".

samurai jack, anyone???
Did we not see that whole "Jack and the Labyrinth" episode?
That was so cool, and I don't mean to be a rabid fangirl, but I LOVE samurai Jack, and then one day I see a white-suited Jigen on screen, and I think I literally screamed. I did.

Psiren from Fullmetal Alchemist is a dead ringer for Fujiko. Broken record detective with long eyelashes seems to be a reference to Zenigata.

Final Fantasy IX: Steiner has long eyelashes, is dutiful to a fault, but exhibits desires of something more than that, is clownish, and has wicked stamina considering he's wearing all that armor. XD

I have a weird sighting of Jigen. 

About 4~5 years ago I would sometimes see an ad on one of my old forums saying "Shoot the terrorist and win a prize".  Th terrorist was Jigen and he was super imposed in front of some sort of jungle village.  I wish had taken a screen capture of that back in the day.

Probably not really considered an hoage or reference, but I still found it amusing.

Ah well it's the lack of the sansei and the doodle of the guy hardly looks a thing like Lupin III, nor does the detective the guy doodled look a thing like Zenigata haha.

And I'm just spotting these random Lupin references left and right. Episode five of Love Shuffle (Yes the same show in my signature) has three of the main characters trying to cheer up the other main character and they start going on about how bread (pan) is good for breakfast and they somehow end up firing off words that have 'pan' in them trying to make him laugh. Peter Pan, Rupan and it goes on. xD

I've never watched it since I don't get any of the Nickelodian channels but Kappa Mikey parodies most anime (they have references to Case Closed/Detective Conan almost every episode) so Lupin III references could be found in there.

Most of the references are background characters or things people say but if anyone's a fan of KM you might want to pay closer attention to see if you can spot one of the gang.  ^-^

Not sure if this is a stretch, but in Chrono Trigger for the SNES, PS, and now DS, apparently-- Lucca frees Crono by blasting everything away with her new gun, the Zonker-38. If there was a P in there, then it would be a sure thing. XD But..any thoughts?

I have one that mey be a bit more of a stretch. A characher in Eyeshield 21 named Shien or "The Kid" who always reminded me of Jigen.  He does not have the hair of beard, but he has a bit of the same face shape and body type (he also dresses like a cowboy instead of a mafia boss). The main thing is his shooting ability and passing ability. He has a .1 second pass giving him the name "quick-draw kid, he is also an insanely good marksman. Best I could find in terms of a picture: http://read.mangashare.com/Eyeshield-21/chapter-034/page023.html

I don't know if anyone said this before me, but Disney's "The Great Mouse Detective" had VERY heavy cagliostro influences, especially the Clocktower scene at the end. I actually had a dream last night that that's how the Cagliostro fight scene played out. it was EPIC, and I don't toss that word around loosely.

Has anyone ever seen "El Dorado?" I heard somewhere that Miguel and Tulio were based off of Lupin and Jigen. Tulio looks JUST like jigen minus the hat, and Miguel wears red...plus their personalities fit Them to a T!

::Grumble.:: I hunted for BOTH those films at my local store. No dice. ;_; I guess YouTube will have to do for now. Yep, you're the first one to say it, I think. ^^ Ooh..would you be able to share that dream with us in word, picture, some kind of visual form? : ) With the way Basil's eyes looks, I wouldn't be surprised if there were 2nd series influences, too. Basil's eyes are unusually smug/cruel/scheming, like Lupin's are.

I personally think that Lupin is a blonde at heart. XD Er, wait, Miguel's blonde, right? ^^:

Okay, I finished watching The Great Mouse Detective and I'm astounded that that didn't get a PG rating. Family film my eye. oO;; That said, the Lupin references abound.

Fujiko-esque dancer/singer at the bar. (Yes, folks, in a Disney movie.)
The hot-air balloon chase: improvised balloon using the Union Jack and regular balloons as the propulsion. It's a Lupin-esque way of chasing the bad guy.
The clock tower fight: what happened to the random henchman almost happened to Olivia. She almost gets crushed by the gears, and in Cagliostro, the henchman is crushed by the gears.
The fact that Basil is upset by his near-failure to stop Ratigan's plot not because of the security of the realm of the Queen's person, but because Ratigan has outsmarted him. In other words, it's his ego. Sound like a certain thief? : )
Another similarity to Lupin: occasional moments of goofiness. Getting hit by random objects, getting shown up by a little girl, etc.
The style of the fight--its progression from the gears to outside of the tower on the clock face. The main difference is that the clock striking 12 crushes Cagliostro: in The Great Mouse Detective it causes Ratigan to fall off.
Basil can disguise himself well: both voice as well as clothes.

There was a lot of death in that movie. OO The henchman eaten by Felicia the cat, Ratigan's lackey--wow, Disney movies were pretty edgy in the 80s, huh? ^^;;

Yes it does.  Conaiseau and Hageito are obvious parodies of Clouseau and Cato.
The scene at the nudist colony is probably spoofing Clouseau's infamous adventure through one in A Shot in the Dark, the second (and best) film in the series.

I remember another homage to Lupin.

In the GCN RPG Baten Kaitos there is a thief character you meet called Pollo the 3rd.  Pollo is Spanish for chicken and Lupine means Wolf like.  The character didn't look like Lupin though, nor did he wear a Red jackeck or anything similar.  Still from the name alone it was definitely a homage to Lupin.

The start of the recent Doctor Who special made my other half turn to me and remark 'Someone's been watching their Lupin the Third', just as I was thinking the exact same thing.

It you're not familiar with the show, Doctor Who is a British series that usually runs anually for around 13 episodes. This year 3 specials are being made instead, the first of which aired on Saturday. Since it's reinvention in 2005, the series has become hugely popular in the UK (particularly Wales, where the writer Russell T. Davies hails from and much of the series is filmed).

Anyway, the following is not a direct reference/homage, but certainly enough to set my Lupin-senses tingling despite the thief being female and the now obligatory nod to Indiana Jones. At the very least, it's likely the nearest we'll get to a Lupin acknowledgement in Blighty!

Unfortunately the similarities end after the opening credits. Still, the first three minutes are worth a peep - the shot at 2:11 clinched it for me.

I highly doubt Nintendo meant for "the glass jaw of France" to be a reference to a background character in a Lupin episode, but I couldn't help but notice that one of Fujiko's suitors in the first red jacket episode looked exactly like Glass Joe, the first opponent in Nintendo's Punch-Out!! series.

Got a couple for you guys.  First, here's a picture from the first Megazone 23 OVA of two cops that look suspiciously familiar:

Here's another from later on in the OVA of Officer Lupin reloading his gun:

Finally, here's one from episode 24 of the original Macross TV series that appears to show an old friend of ours playing a Cagliostro themed arcade game:

There's two references to mystery writer Ranpo Edogawa in Lupin III.
In the pilot film and first chapter of the manga, there's a character named "Investigator Akechi", who was probably named after Edogawa's famous detective, Kogoro Akechi.
Also, the character "The Man with 20 Faces" in volume 12 of the original manga is probably named after a villain in the Kogoro Akechi stories.

There are some nice homages in there.

On another note of homages...there was a hentai doujinshi I was reading (...someone sent it to me on a whim JUST for this homage) and this guy is getting excited about this girl who wants to have sex with him.  Anyway, in the corner three different times you see an image of the famous "Lupin in his boxers jumping at Fujiko in bed" scene.  XD

I died laughing everytime I see it.

It seems even hentai artists know of the influence of Lupin...though not in the way that most of us fans do.   ;)

It's funny that this thread has gone the way of hentai, because while it's far from homage {and so easy to find it's not worth linking, although I'd be happy to do so anonymously in PM} there's a lot of Lupin H-Manga floating around, but with Lupin so unloved by americans, few of it is scanned and fewer translated.

On topic: Gantz girl is DEFINITELY Fujiko-esque. It's kind of amusing that Fujiko in many ways ushered in the bust-buster archetype for Japanese anime heroines.

The three-part OVA "Re: Cutie Honey" is full of references to other animes, and does not skimp on the Lupin ones.
Honey's boss dresses exactly like red-jacket Lupin;

(http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/1530/85310720.jpg)

The male protagonist wears a green jacket that is somehow familiar;

(http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/788/43196292.jpg)

and if this isn't a sort of homage, I don't know what is. :D

(http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/7456/homage.gif)

Seriously, watch it. It is by far the best Cutie Honey version around, and not overly long either. (My gf exclaimed "Where is the rest of the series?!" when the credits rolled on the final episode. I would have watched them if there were more, but it's just fine as it is. And with a series, they would have had to make a decision on certain themes that are more than a little...ambiguous. (Or perhaps not so very ambiguous after all, but left unsaid on purpose. :-X )

Regarding the last Cutie Honey gif, I don't think it's a reference so much as it is Lupin's influence on anime physics {see: removing physics entirely}.
Title: Re: Lupin References/homages
Post by: Videot on June 13, 2009, 05:41:15 AM
Yes, it's more a homage to the style than to Lupin specifically. I couldn't help making the connection though, as it is immediately preceded by some similar tentacle-dodging which really put me in mind of "Dead or Alive" (I didn't cap that though, since the fansubs during that segment displays the background song lyrics in japanese, the background song lyrics in english, AND the translated dialogue. Too clutttered for a .gif :) and the rest of the series uses a different kind of anime physics (even more exaggerated and simplified), so it sort of sticks out.
(And the closeup of the boot sole at the end is kinda Lupin-y as well.:)

Oh yes, the Cowboy Bebop boy...had forgotten him.
I tend to think of Cowboy Bebop as being overall MASSIVELY influenced by Lupin, from art style (foot shapes, anyone?) through gruff, bearded voice of reason and on to self-serving female protagonist (Faye/Fujiko, even have similar names) and long elaborate money-making-missions that while successful never really pay anything.
Still a good series, though.

Okay, so that's how Jet was inspired by Jigen. I keep looking at Jet and thinking, man, that's one ugly mug. How could lean, mean  dog-faced Jigen inspire massive, unwieldy, bull-faced Jet? oO So it's his personality, not his appearance. Thanks for that. ^^

Wow, I knew about Macross homage, but the Megazone 23 scenes are amazing! I also Lupin and Jigen make a cameo in Urusei Yatsura(which aired in the same time slot as Lupin III 2nd series, right after red jacket series ended.

In Excel Saga, a character named Nabeshin dresses up like Lupin and there is also an episode where a man disguises himself like Jigen.
I might be wrong but the guy who voiced Nabeshin also voiced Nabikov, the villain with horrendous laugh in 1999 TV Special "Fujiko's Unlucky Days : Da Capo of Love/Columbu Files", which he also directed.

I can't remember if someone mentioned this already...
In Spirited Away, Chihiro is trying to get down the stairs when she slips and starts running down the stairs so fast that she can't stop, very similar to Lupin slipping and running down the castle roof at breakneck speed to the point where he can't stop. The difference is that while Lupin flies through the air, getting to the castle tower,  Chihiro slams into a wall.

In this same scene, when Chihiro is inching down the stairs, the first four notes of the Lupin theme plays. I need to get a hold of a sound clip. Even if that was only coincidence, it was really funny.^^

Chihiro's dad is also sporting a mustache that looks a lot like Cagliostro's.

Watching Cyborg 009 again (the 2001 remake, that is), i recently noticed a possible allusion to Lupin The Third in one episode. In episode 7 "Defeat the Invisible Opponent", Joe Shimamura returns to Tokyo in search for the kidnapped professor Kozumi, when he meets up with "Scar-Nose" Yasu, one of his childhood friends. Yasu incidentally wears a red jacket with a dark blue shirt underneath, just like Lupin (all that's missing is the yellow tie, but i guess the yellow collar makes up for it). He also walks the same way as Lupin.

It could most possibly be a coincidence, considering the show's theme (and the original Cyborg 009 manga being a little older than the Lupin III manga), but i just couldn't resist mentioning it.

Not much of a reference as the kid is nothing like Lupin and the latter doesn't have copyrights over these colors but hey, any Lupin fan would notice this.

Okay, i used a search engine, so i might have overlooked it.

In the beginning of the 5th episode of FLCL (Bura-bure), Kamon (Naota's dad) is dressed up like Lupin III. He also talks to Haruko in pure Lupin fashion (with the voice tremolo and all) 'cause he wants to make woopy with her. Plus, The 2nd series and Castle of Cagliostro are mentioned and Monkey Punch is referred here as "Mr. Monkey". Also, the title card appears in typewriter style!

I took this screenshot quite a long time ago when I checked out some garbage animes. Now.. why cant I remember what anime this was or what was happening. (I should take notes..) I faintly remember there was hide-and-seek of some short going on with all the randomness. It was ova episode for some moe-filled parody series.
Anyone for the rescue? My memory can seriously fail at times. :'D

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.).

Nice, that's obviously Lupin and Jigen.
I read that the series is full of hommages to many anime series.

About Evangelion references, here are two of them:

IIRC even that Kero logo is a pun on Evangelion's NERV logo.

Someone posted this yesterday. From Honey And Clover, 1:19-1:43. A woman gives a green jacket to this teenager with glasses. He goes to a party, and he pulls the string with the flags on it. He is wearing a green jacket, black shirt, pants, yellow tie, tie clip.

1:19-1:43.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Gy1xmXPeSk&feature=related

References like one of the characters donning Lupin's clothes or a Lupin look-alike are fun, but appearances of the actual Lupin and co. in other anime warm my heart even more. ^^

Check out blatant jigen cameo, from
Kochikame. He's wearing an eggshell instead of his fedora.: )

Eggman as in "Goo goo g'joob" or as in "Not that irritating hedgehog again"?  Ah, it's irrelevant, since that's definitely a Cagliostro spoof.

Speaking of vidya games, in the Metal Slug games (Metal Slug 7's the only one I can recall actually seeing it in, but there could be more) there's a weapon called the "Zantetsu Sword":
(http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/metalslug/images/e/e9/Marco_sword.gif)
Not sure if it's a reference or not, but I immediately thought of Goemon (Zantetsu Sword/Zantetsuken, same thing, right?). 
I wouldn't be surprised if it is a shout out, since the games have made references to things like Doctor Who, War of the Worlds, and Yellow Submarine.

I hadn't seen 1985's Vampire Hunter D for years when I first saw Cagliostro and I still saw an immediate similarity :

It's just my impression of course but even though these two movies are incredibly different, I can imagine D being influenced by Cagliostro for this scene.

also in an episode of crayon shin chan, he appears as lupin IV and his friend kazama as zenigata.

I can't remember if someone has posted this already...Lt. Yamamoto looks (and acts) like Zenigata. I don't know if it was an intentional reference or just a similarity in character design. I'm looking at the eyelashes, sideburns, and facial structure. When surprised, his eyes get big and round. When falling over or running, sometimes he has the same wide stance as Zenigata.

Title: Re: Lupin References/homages
Post by: Reed on May 10, 2010, 12:17:08 AM
I was thinking the same thing. Same character designer, perhaps?

EDIT: Nope. The character designer for "In Memory of the Walther P38" was Fuminori Kizaki. Looks like the only other character designs he did were for Shadow Skill (TV), Galaxy Railways and Blue Gender (now that I think about it, Blue Gender's designs certainly do bear a fairly strong resemblance to Walther's, don't they?).
Title: Re: Lupin References/homages
Post by: Sad cactus on May 10, 2010, 08:13:41 AM
L3: Yeah, they do look like the ones from Walther P-38. I'm surprised  I can't find more pictures of Blue Gender, though. Thanks for the info on Fuminori Kizaki.

I guess the design similarity comes from that they are both big, loud commanding middle-aged Japanese men  with an unwavering sense of purpose but are also just as ridiculous and silly as the main character whom they complement.

I thought Lt. Yamamoto might look like Zenigata, but he acted more like a parody of Bright Noah from U.C. Gundam series than Zenigata.

Quote

I haven't seen Gundam, so I can't compare. I watched both the Captain Tylor TV series and the OVA and while Yamamoto might start off as your ordinary honor-bound, straitlaced workaholic, he ends up being as unorthodox as Tylor. By the end, the show might as well be the Irresponsible Captain Yamamoto. XD And yeah, their main goals are very different--Zenigata's is to catch Lupin, and all the misadventure that entails, Yamamoto's is to initially be a good soldier and emulate his mentor, but his goal, with the reception of the captaincy from Tylor, is to save the Raalgon mother ship, to the shock of his superiors. And then Tylor gives him command of the ship and Yamamoto joins forces with the Raalgon against the greater enemy--a huge change from when he blindly followed the gung-ho mission of the United Planet Space Force. If Bright Noah is a wild card, a heretic, then you're right. Scott Bernard from Robotech would be another example, I guess. There's lots of officers in anime who don't follow orders want peace when others want war, etc. They  thus shock and outrage others around them. But it's something about the methods of and demeanor of Yamamoto that put him into a special class similar to Zenigata's. Tylor shocks his crew, his unorthodoxy rubs off on Yamamoto, and eventually his superiors refer to him as an idiot as well. He flowers into an idiot savant, starting off timid but becoming a complete heretic.

Zenigata--ignoring manga and green versions, since there's little to  no higher power structure to measure Zenigata's unorthodoxy--(I imagine he still is, but I can't analyze those as well as red) But with Zenigata--firstly, there's Lupin, and his methods of catching him are wonderfully madcap. Or even when he's not riding a bike through the ocean, his doggedness to pursue Lupin ANYWHERE, with nothing stopping him short of the earth caving in under him--or at least getting knocked out. Multiple people have observed that in a car chase with Lupin, Zenigata's is the only holdout. Zenigata is purely unpredictable in all that he does. Will he go after Lupin? Usually. Now will he use a giant crane arm or will he attack his hideout alone? And his obsession with Lupin lies outside the whole power structure--at least shown in Mamo when he goes after Lupin against the orders of the commissioner.  On the other hand, if justice and honor are Zenigata's calling cards, he easily falls into dishonorable situations (too numerous to list). Drinking to the point of embarassment is a similar common trait---yes, that happens to a lot of characters, but that they're stern, straitlaced kind of guys with a very clean-cut appearance that often drink themselves under the table is something interesting. A slight difference but general similarity is that Zenigata often finds that the best offensive is running. He has remarkable self-preservation. Now he doesn't talk about honorable death--there's a difference. And Yamamoto pays lip-service to dying for the military but balks at being executed and hangs onto life tenaciously---, to humorous effect on this point--but Zenigata doesn't bat an eye at running from danger and doesn't particularly talk about whether it's better to fight or run all that often. Like Lupin, he tends to value his life. He's a survivor. And lastly, general goofiness. Yamamoto is all work until he boggles, whether at the OO naked twins or at Tylor's antics. He's often too zealous about firing at the enemy, causing more harm than good. Zenigata's zeal can go overboard too, and then he doesn't save whoever got tied up by Lupin or completely overlooks saving the hostage. And then he often misses the real bad guy. At that point he's just the idiot. But there are times when he's an idiot savant (also too numerous to list). Though, it would seem that Yamamoto needed Tylor to break him out of his mold---Zenigata is a wild card all by himself--though Lupin must be there to keep him wild, and brings out the best and worst--but usually outrageous and unexpected-- in Zenigata. My conclusion in all this--Yamamto is a fledgling heretic--Zenigata, whether his aim is to catch Lupin or not, has always been one.

Wow, I knew about Macross homage, but the Megazone 23 scenes are amazing! I also Lupin and Jigen make a cameo in Urusei Yatsura(which aired in the same time slot as Lupin III 2nd series, right after red jacket series ended.

In Excel Saga, a character named Nabeshin dresses up like Lupin and there is also an episode where a man disguises himself like Jigen.
I might be wrong but the guy who voiced Nabeshin also voiced Nabikov, the villain with horrendous laugh in 1999 TV Special "Fujiko's Unlucky Days : Da Capo of Love/Columbu Files", which he also directed.

I can't believe no one else has mentioned Excel Saga. There are a lot of Lupin references in that anime. Nabeshin looks just like Lupin III, except he has an afro. He is based off of and voiced by the director of Excel Saga, Shinichi Watanabe (the Japanese order being Watanabe Shinichi, which is where the nickname comes from). Nabeshin uses a lot of crazy gadgets, just like Lupin. The beginning of each episode of Excel Saga shows what kind of anime genre they'll be parodying, by having the author of the Excel Saga manga, Rikdo Koshi, give his permission to turn Excel Saga into whatever genre they're parodying. In one episode, it shows Rikdo Koshi chasing after Nabeshin, and he's dressed up just like Zenigata. Then in an homage to Castle of Cagliostro, Nabeshin is holding the two rings from the movie, and realizes that putting them together will solve the puzzle.

When I first saw the trailer for Tangled in theaters and they showed the main hero guy, my first thought was also "Lupin".
My brain didn't make any connection to Cagliostro because I knew it was based on the story of Rapunzel, which by itself is similar to Cagliostro in that it involves a Princess trapped in a tower by the story's villain.
I think the original story had a handsome prince, tho. :P

It's from episode 64, or the second Christmas episode, if I recall, and it's clearly a reference made to Star Wars and lightsabers!  ;D

The clothes and sword fighting alone don't make the reference because it's traditional samurai garb and fighting style. =/

The only way this can be a Goemon reference would be is he swung his sword around inanimate objects like lightning and then have it all fall to pieces as he's putting his sword away. XD

Post by: FilmmakerJ on November 27, 2010, 09:14:55 PM
I noticed Lupin references in a few things.

For one you have the "Otaku No Video" which had the main otaku leader guy with an original "Cagliostro" poster in his room, and then those two cosplayers in the background dressed as green jacket Lupin and Jigen.

Then there was that sequence in Fooly Cooly where the dad mentions Cagliostro and Monkey sensai, and the whole imitation homage to the opening title sequence of the Red Jacket series.

I found a whole conversation about Lupin the 3rd in "Genshiken" where the characters were at the beach and the two most otaku of the group were building the Castle of Cagliostro out of sand, the clock tower and everything. And Modarame, the leader, was expressing his interest in the series, which movie he liked the most. One of the other guys there actually said he liked "The Fuma Conspiracy" the most, and I still don't know what's up with that, Fuma Conspiracy was not that good. Also Modarame goes into a explaination about a failed Lupin film that was supposed to be the 3rd movie, but it got scrapped and 2 years later, the "Gold of Babylon" was made in 1986.

The final sequence I can find was from "Shin Chan" with the whole Pupin the Turd episode. And I gotta say, that's a very good parodied name. It's just so perfect isn't it?

As for the Here Is Greenwood scene one of you guys found, that's fantastic, I have never seen a full reference to the movie like that before. It just amazes me to no end how much the Japanese care about that movie, and we don't. Why is it like the E.T. or Indiana Jones - Raiders of Japan, but the major anime lovers of America don't know about it and don't care about it the same way.

In fact, I wish it, and the other Miyazaki films could be cared about by the AFI or the other movie critics of the world. If films like Hidden Fortress and Seven Samurai can be on the top 100 movies list, and they are foreign films, then why can't "The Castle of Cagliostro" be in the top 25 animated films. Spirited Away is on that list, and I still don't know why, it wasn't even the best of Miyazaki, Princess Mononoke was, or at least it has a better chance of being. I wish someone could answer these questions for me, I am getting so off topic. X( XP

Earlier, I was reading a Mad Magazine anthology, and happened to come across a feature by the legendary Sergio Aragones called "The Shadow Knows". It shows brief scenes of people in everyday life, while their shadows show what they're really thinking.
If that sounds familiar, you've probably read chapter 44 of the original manga (English title: "Smile for the Machine Gun"), which features Lupin's thoughts shown in the exact same way. It's definitely an homage, as MP's a self-admitted fan of Mad.

Here's some panels from "The Shadow Knows" (don't have access to my Lupin collection at this time, I'll have to post those later):

An homage to Jigen is in fact in Animaniacs. Here's a shot of it.
(http://img242.imageshack.us/img242/2171/jigenanimaniacsoj0.jpg)

Yeah yeah, now that's awesome. Cause a while back, I hadn't made all the connections yet that TMS actually owned Lupin and animated him along with Animaniacs and Tiny Toons. But I was watching "Farewell To Nostradamus" and saw Lupin switching through TV channels, and it brought up a generic cartoon of a cat and a mouse chasing each other, and it was animated EXACTLY like Tiny Toons or Animaniacs. At least when TMS does the animation. Both those cartoons had other, sometimes crappier animation houses working on them as well. Only when TMS worked on them though, was it actually awesome. That's what I say.

So to know that they referenced Jigen in a cartoon is awesome. But I think we all would've rather seen Lupin referenced in a cartoon am I right. Then we would know for certain that they were trying to make a connection for foreign fans to catch. =P

I do apologise if this has been mentioned already, but I've been looking into an old SEGA Dreamcast game named 'SEGAGAGA' just lately. The game acts as one big parody of SEGA's situation in the console race around the launch of the PS2, with players taking the role of a new recruit to help take down the big evil 'Dogma' (Sony) corporation.

As the game itself is one big parody, there are lots of little parodies of other titles and cartoons found in the game (Lupin included.)

In the manga Sket Dance, the main characters consist of three people, and one named Switch refers himself as Goemon when discussing
the trio's relationship. He specifically says that the other two hang out with each other more often like Lupin and Jigen do, while Switch himself is a bit reclusive like Goemon.

This could be speculation, but I'm wondering if Bruce Lee didn't see Green Jacket. It wouldn't be impossible, as he did spend some time in Japan. The reason is that Fist of Fury/The Chinese Connection uses the exact same plot device of a guy who pretends to be a maintenance guy while fixing a phone. Lee is even dressed like Lupin. Maybe I'm just imagining it, though?

In ''Panda Kopanda'', this is a cameo with Lupin and Jigen who is deguised as Tv journalist at the end of the second (I think) movie.

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_EXgDI8DeN_E/RZ63EeOMffI/AAAAAAAAAPA/KXuLoqq4jIM/s400/cameo2.jpg)

In ''Sasuga no Sarutobi'', known in french as ''L'Académie des Ninjas'' (The Ninja Academy), two pictures in the town show Lupin, Jigen and the Fiat 500.

In the first volume of ''Soul Eater'' in french, Death the Kid is trying to catch the thief ''Edmond de la Cambriole'' (Kaitô Lupin in japanese). It's a reference to ''Edgar de la Cambriole'', the french name of Lupin since 1985.

Are you referring to the Genshiken manga? Cause in the anime, they had a whole 7 minutes devoted to talking about Lupin the 3rd. Including the dumped original third movie that someone was planning, until Gold of Babylon was made instead. And they talk about Cagliostro because the two of the group are building Cagliostro castle in the sand.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gkiIm9nKfU&feature=related  (SKIP OVER TO time index 3:05 ) It's amazing.

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.

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 (http://www.darkhorizons.com/news/22585/fuchs-to-pen-clock-without-a-face) seems a bit Lupin-esque.

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.

Sure, Zenigata could never stop Lupin's career for good. But the Punisher, on the other hand... (http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/easteregg3-20-3a.jpg) 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?

Hehe check out what I found. Earlier I was telling a friend about the new Lupin the III first series DVD set and it led to a discussion on Castle of Cagliostro and it's influences on animation and other work and one thing led to another and it sparked her memory of a reference to the show most people tend to miss.

I mean look at it! It looks just like the city for Cagliostro. There's even the village, the bridge, the tower, the place where Clarrise was in the scene where Lupin and her have their second meeting and if you look at the bottom the Roman city is there too! Talk about an homage.

An excellent homage I was unaware of, for sure. Thanks for sharing it.

The DYKG? image says it was "copied straight," but it's definitely been changed. Obviously, the Roman city wouldn't be buried so deep underground. The bridge between the castle and the village is much shorter, here the lengthy aqueduct is between the two (in the film the aqueduct connects the castle to the ruins by the clock tower). Clarisse's tower is also much taller than the castle in Dracula X, where they're a comparable height in the film.

Don't mean to downplay the fact that it's an homage, but the site was incorrect to call it a straight copy.

(http://www.studiobriefing.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/This_Means_War_1.jpg)


Just got done watching This Means War with Chris Pine and Tom Hardy.

Very very enjoyable action-spy-romantic-comedy. I find it kind of cool that while there used to be action comedies in the past, now they actually make the action comedies look like action movies in their cinematography (like all serious and dramatic), but make them act like comedies in their camera direction and cutting. Makes for a much more believable merge of the genres.

Anyway,
there were some shots and action stunts in the movie's climax that reminded me of the car chase from the beginning of Cagliostro. In this car chase, the girl that both Chris (FDR) and Tom (Tuck) are dating is in a bright yellow beetle, stuck between four black SUVs, and Chris and Tom are trying to get her out before any negotiations have to take place between them and this bad guy named Heinrich.

Chris and Tom get the girl out by driving up fast in a Jeep, Chris hanging out the side with his limbs holding tightly; then leaping off, grabbing the girl, and leaping back onto the Jeep. After which, Tom takes out one of the SUV's tires with his gun and the SUV explodes.

(http://www.imcdb.org/i500434.jpg)

Now... with what I've just said, we now have...
1. Chris hanging out the side of a car trying to get to a girl in another car: just like Lupin did to get to Clarisse.
2. Tom taking out a villain's car tires with a gun: just like Jigen did with his gun and the henchmen in the dark vehicle. (also the windshields on these SUVs were bullet proof, just like the tires were in Cagliostro).
3. a bright yellow Volkswagen Beetle, which is almost the same color as Lupin's late '60s "Fiat 500."

 (http://pics.imcdb.org/2/tmw_012138_c57.jpg)

It's almost like a mirror image isn't it. lol ;D 8)

I'm just as inclined to believe this is all just coincidence. But I think the inclusion of a bright yellow compact car and a red vehicle with a small front windshield (just like Clarisse's car was) makes it all the more possible that this car chase was an homage to "Cagliostro"; but it was carefully camouflaged with elements switched around and moved around so that only if you have seen the whole sequence from Cagliostro can you connect the dots.


Has anyone else seen This Means War who might agree with me, at least a little on this possibility?

Post by: FilmmakerJ on July 10, 2012, 09:55:01 PM
Come on guys, you gotta check out what I just posted above, I really want to hear your opinions about This Means War


Along with that, I just finished watching The Goonies, and I have just confirmed for all to read, that an actual "Cliff Hanger" video arcade game is in the movie in the opening sequence. No footage from the game is on screen, just the green box level number screen. But it's the right color blue, the controls are the same, and you can just make out the left side of the arcade decoration with Lupin in his red jacket, and that unknown female on the bottom left.

(http://img1.photobucket.com/albums/1003/shazz/CliffHanger.jpg) (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/6/67/CliffHanger_arcadeflyer.png)

But there's something else, yet again a scene from The Castle of Cagliostro can be argued is referenced in this film. The scene where Lupin falls down that shaft in Clarisse's bedroom and stops himself from hitting the spikes by using his grappling hook. But in The Goonies, it's Data who has a grappling hook in his belt buckle, made out of a pair of toy clacker teeth attached to a slinky. He falls down a shaft where the floor drops out of under him, and he stops himself with the clacker teeth before he hits some spikes. I have no doubt in my mind, someone on the story team had seen Cagliostro. Or more likely saw that scene from the "Cliff Hanger" game. I don't remember if that particular scene is featured in the game. But there is reasonable evidence that someone had seen one or the other, it's just too close to not make the connection. And nothing like that I have ever seen in any other adventure movie.

Knowing how badly FOX ripped off Perfect Blue, I wouldn't be surprised if there were some Lupin fans at that company, too. Though Knight & Day seems more Lupin-esque as a whole.

Edit: Yeah, after seeing the last ep of the original show, there's no way Spielberg's not a Lupin fan. They nuked the fridge, just like in Indy 4.

Edit 2: While it doesn't prove he likes Lupin, Quentin Tarantino apparently at least likes the Lupin idea of coming up with relatives of non-public domain characters (http://hollywood-elsewhere.com/2012/07/do_the_math.php).   ;)

In episode 12 of the anime Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, the teacher, Itoshiki Nozomu, tells his students about "backwards flow", where people get involved in something in an unusual and/or unintended order, such as getting into a manga series after playing the pachinko game based off of it. He says that the greatest example of backwards flow is how Kanichi Kurita was originally a comedian who impersonated Lupin's voice, and ended up becoming the actual voice actor for Lupin.

This isn't really a Reference or Homage, it's more or less just a similar looking thing. It's a painting that I saw this morning at a friend's house, painted by artist Sung Kim.

It has that typical pastel, Thomas Kinkade kind of colors, which is one of my favorite painting conventions/styles. Here we see a Gazebo in the middle of a lake, with stepping stones leading to it.

I'm not sure how common this architecture is, how many wealthy people or middle-class folks might have it on their property; but none-the-less it is absolutely gorgeous, and it reminds me heavily of the same sort of architecture just down the staircase from the burned castle of the King and Queen of the Dutchy of Cagliostro, where Lupin reminesces about his first meeting with Clarisse.

When I first saw those stepping stones and that Gazebo, I instantly knew that I wanted to one day have that in my own backyard, facing the West so that the setting sun would hit it the exact same way, over-looking a large (possibly man-made) lake.

Actually, I was hoping there would be a cross-over of "Cowboy Bebop" and "Lupin III."
There actually was a piece of artwork to that effect, and I thought it was a legit film in production.

This could happen one of two ways:
1. It's actually Lupin the 8th or somewhere up there, that way there's a reason why it's the future and he's in space.
2. Either Lupin or more likely Spike manages to time travel for a few days and Spike gets the bounty notice to capture Lupin the 3rd. The better situation, though, would be that Lupin and the gang, along with Zenigata (though he's not entirely necessary) would go to the future, and after a few months they get used to the future, and Spike then gets the bounty to capture Lupin. And it would be all mysterious as to who it is, until much much later, it is revealed that it's Lupin the 3rd. We wouldn't know he's in it at all in the beginning.

Seems like everywhere you turn, it's nearly always a reference to the "Cagliostro" Lupin, and not much red jacket. I guess the Japanese have come to love it after all these years.

I mean you got the students recreating a scene on the floor in "Here Is Greenwood."
The "Pupin' the Turd" episode of "Shin Chan." (that is such a perfect parody name too.)
The car chase and dropping trap door references in "Sgt. Frog"
The Castle of Cagliostro poster and cosplayers shown in "Otaku No Video"
Cagliostro sand castle "Genshiken"
I remember someone mentioning a "Cliffhanger" arcade imitation in I think "Macross," though I'm not certain.

But of course there are many, MANY more. I'm not sure why no one else has mentioned these Panty/Stocking references though. I haven't seen it yet, but you'd think no one on this forum would miss that if they did see the show.

These references are all the more reason I have to check out more of the Panty and Stocking series. I only saw the first 2 episodes so far.

It seems they're using a yellow Fiat quite often in FIAT 500 US ads. It must be the signature color for the FIAT, which is probably why Lupin was given the same color.

So here's Lupin driving around the Amalfi Coast (joking of course):

I remember hearing Reed say in the Fuma Conspiracy Commentary that the reason Lupin was given the yellow Fiat (or any Fiat for that matter) was because someone at the production studio had one which they used as a model for Lupin's car from then on (the Mercedes Lupin has is hard to find and much so to draw). Or something like that.

Sounds like it was a good idea.
He probably drove a Mercedes Benz SSK to look vintage back in the 60s, like he owns a lot of special and unique items to give himself an edge. But then they gave him a contemporary car which might have looked odd at the time (like seeing Lupin drive a Toyota Camry or a Honda Accord today). But now that they've let him keep the 1960s FIAT 500 model (in the new millenium) instead of giving him the modern FIAT 500 design, he has now retained his antique, eclectic persona.

I don't know if anyone mentioned it in this thread already but Cowboy Bebop is probably one of the most well known and best Lupin homages of all time (it's also kind of funny how it's way more popular than Lupin in the US). Even though they are on different sides of the law with Lupin's gang being thieves and the Bebop crew being bounty hunters you still can see a lot of the same character types represented in the series. The series is more inspired by the darker episodes of the first series though with an even mix of things like the more jazzy soundtrack of the second series and beyond.

Spike = Lupin. Even though he is way more laid back and not as much a woman chaser as Lupin he still has that same charisma as him and kind of feels like a less goofy Cagliostro Lupin. Also he has the same boots as Lupin so there's that too.

Jet = Jigen. He's Spike's partner in crime and has that laid back attitude Jigen does to. You can also see the same type of friendship they hold to the point of living with each other and having a deep trust for each other in their missions He also has that same distrusting attitude towards woman and you can see in how he treats the Fujiko shoutout.

Faye = Fujiko. Even though Fujiko is a lot more sexual and sneaky Faye isn't above ripping off the group in the same way Fujiko does even though Spike doesn't show an attraction to her in the way Lupin does with Fujiko (or almost at all it seems) 

All in all it's a great Lupin homage and I'm glad it's as popular as it is now.

I don't know if anyone mentioned it in this thread already but Cowboy Bebop is probably one of the most well known and best Lupin homages of all time (it's also kind of funny how it's way more popular than Lupin in the US). Even though they are on different sides of the law with Lupin's gang being thieves and the Bebop crew being bounty hunters you still can see a lot of the same character types represented in the series. The series is more inspired by the darker episodes of the first series though with an even mix of things like the more jazzy soundtrack of the second series and beyond.

Cowboy Bebop is a virtual "given" when people suggest stuff that one should see if they liked "Lupin the 3rd," and vice-versa. I've never heard it all spelled out before, but we've known for quite some time that it is heavily inspired by Lupin.

The only reason I think Lupin isn't as well known or liked as "Cowboy Bebop" is that Lupin does not have as realistic of a style to it's designs and it's universe. Cowboy Bebop is gritty, has a realistic color palette; it's also fairly violent and deep, and there are character archs that occur throughout the series for both Spike and Faye. Lupin does not often have this. Lupin's films and episodes are also more comical and require a certain type of person to fully enjoy them. Not every Star Trek/Star Wars fan (the two biggest geek groups in the world) is likely to enjoy a Lupin installment, but they are likely to enjoy Bebop, and not just because it takes place in space. lol

Funny image FilmmakerJ. Reminds me how easy a crossover would write itself.

I think the reason it's not as well known is less that of what you mentioned (even though those are very good reasons) and more so Bebop having aired continuously in the US for the past 12 years giving people a lot of chances to start on it. Lupin wasn't so lucky however.

Yes, that is definitely the other main reason. But I think that reason only exists because of the other. It's not just the viewers who preferred one over the other, it was the TV producers and executives. Lupin might have looked like a PBS cartoon compared to the gritty realistic style of Bebop, and was a little too old for the TV executives to have any faith in it. Likely they were quite skeptical and not as comfortable trying it out in too many places other than Adult Swim. So they preferred to air Bebop.

You're right, victorystar. My sentence was more a parody of
the Marvel v.s DC comics statement than a real opinion.

I think that the humour is what makes Lupin different from Cowboy bebop
and unique. Even the manga was fun at its core and used a lot of the parody
tactic. I don't think a completely serious and gritty Lupin would work very well.

But don't get me wrong, Coboy Bebop is one of my most favorite series ever and I haven't
fully recovered from the emotionnal turmoil yet.

Speaking of hommages, some japanese-french animator made a pilot episode for a series that seems

Well I don't see what the point is of buying any sort of property distribution or adaptation rights if you're not going to stinkin' use 'em right away. I mean the better thing to do would be to get somebody to write up a script, pitch the script and the franchise adaptation to a production company, get the green light from them to attempt to acquire the rights, and then move right into some form of production.

But if that isn't the best course of action, then at least have some material prepared before hand so you know in which direction you're going. Holding onto the domestic rights for this long is just a waste incase someone else had the idea to get right on making a film besides him.

Okay, I must be an idiot for saying that last line there. Of course no one would want someone else to get the rights to make a movie instead of them. But I still don't get why they wouldn't get right on it and make the damnn movie. Why wait around for 5 years or more and not get any closer to making one?

You buy them up so someone else can't. And Molen, et. al. did try to do something with them right away. They worked on at least a treatment, if not a script, for the film; they likely shopped it around and found no takers. Welcome to development hell...

I already owned up to to that flubb in the post before your's.

Still I can't image why someone wouldn't like the Lupin material, it's just as awesome as anything else out there right now, if it would only be done right. So either the treatment is crap, or the money backers are confused as to what Lupin is and what it's potential is.

Well then why don't they just make them not Japanese? Sure that would be white-washing everybody (the only one I'd rather see played by at least a French guy would be Lupin); but that's what Hollywood all the time.

But even then, that doesn't seem like that big of a deal. Tons of movies have had Asian actors play either the lead role or the side-kick. Jackie Chan has done this multiple times. So why would Hollywood be skeptical about it now?

Character origin
It is possible that Looker's looks, attire, and general persona are derived from Koichi Zenigata, a fictional detective in Monkey Punch's anime series, Lupin the Third. Lupin the Third itself was initially released in Japan around the time that many of the highly ranked staff members of Game Freak were young.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this before. I may have waaay back when I first became a member.

Anyway, an OVA inside look into the world of anime production called "Animation Runner Kuromi" made a parody homage to Lupin the 3rd with a character called Louis Mond. (at least I think that's how it should be spelled. lol)

Here's the main homage/parody sequence from the OVA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXqH894-yWA&t=2m35s

(http://www.imfdb.org/images/thumb/7/76/Kuromip081.jpg/500px-Kuromip081.jpg)

In the context of the show, this Lupin parody is supposed to be the main character's favorite hero and favorite animated series. She is shocked to find out that one of her new co-workers did inbetween work on some of the "Louis Mond" episodes. Which is the equivilent of one of us meeting one of the guys who animated the car chase sequence in Cagliostro or Mamo.

This would also make the main character of "Animation Runner Kuromi" a fellow Lupinite of sorts. One of the only Lupin Loving specific anime fans I have ever seen portrayed in an anime before. That's including what I've seen from "Otaku No Video" and "Genshiken."

I think that's a bit of a stretch, GASTU. lol

There are more than enough movies with somebody hanging off a clock tower or a clock face. Like "Hugo" or "The Great Mouse Detective" (which had the interior scene that is often assumed to be derivative of Cagliostro), Disney's "Peter Pan," I think even "The Hudsucker Proxy" had a clock face in it too when Norville Barns is about to jump.

And besides, nobody was hanging off the one in Cagliostro like that anyway.

Um, I hope I'm not putting this up here in bad taste. If either of you moderators find this inappropriate, please feel free to take it down.

But I just saw the trailer for the "Kekko Kamen" DVD by ADV, and I saw there was a clear reference to the first episode of Lupin the 3rd: Part 1 (aka the Green Jacket series), where Fujiko is tortured with all of those tiny robotic hands with tiny cartoon gloves. Although in this case it's supposed to be much more kinky.

I remember reading somewhere and I'm decently sure that the Clock Tower fight in Mouse Detective was a full on homage to the one in Cagliostro.

If not I watched Mouse Detective for nothing because that was the only part of the movie that really shined and was something that still felt fresh to me.

Well Spielberg has allegedly only seen the car chase sequence from the beginning of the movie; hence the tagline on both the Streamline and the Manga Ent DVD releases.

And George Lucas came up with the idea for Indiana Jones based off corny adventure serials just like Star Wars was.

Raiders and Cagliostro are only 2 years apart. The early subbed premiere of Cagliostro in Los Angeles was slightly later in mid 1980 or so. Raiders came out in 1981. So I'm not sure if Spielberg would have built that much of Indiana off of one movie.

But, as I've mentioned before, there are shots in both Cagliostro and Temple of Doom where somebody gets crushed by a piece of machinery. The Goonies has a scene where Data falls down a trap door and catches himself by grappling to the ceiling with something that shoots from his belt. And The Last Crusade has Indiana Jones infiltrating a castle while in disguise and then climbing to the roof to break in through a window to rescue someone (his father of course).

So I'm not sure when or how he saw the film, or if he's seen any other Lupin title; but there is evidence to suggest that either he saw it, or someone on his story team did. But I don't think it was an intentional agenda through the whole trilogy, though.

Okay, that's more likely. Because there isn't really anything Cagliostro-ish about Radiers, but Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade are a little. So if he caught it around 1983 or '84, then it makes sense.

You know she does a little, in the face and a little in the hair. Yeah, it could have been an amalgamation of inspiratino from a few places.

Edit: Jude Law's looking very Lupinesque (http://www.deadline.com/2012/10/dom-hemingway-jude-law-richard-e-grant-demian-bichir-photo/#comments).  ;D

Edit 2: The Mindgame director also mentioned being a fan of Cagliostro on Reddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/11u1vs/i_am_masaaki_yuasa_director_of_production_igs/).

Edit 3: So after seeing Moonrise Kingdom, I'm gonna say that Wes Anderson has to be a fan of Cagliostro. Both movies have a rooftop chase, a male protagonist who climbs up into the female protagonist's window, a church wedding, a massive flood, and a scene at the end with a police car which leaves for its next job.

Edit 4: Also, I've brought this up before, but Leorio from Hunter X Hunter looks like Lupin w/ spiked hair.

Once again, the most recognizable image of Lupin is referenced in the anime movie, Red Line. (which of course was designed by the same guy who designed "A Woman Called Fujiko Mine.")

When the newscasters are going over all of the racers in the upcoming Red Line competition, they get to a couple of guys known as the Mad Brothers: Lynchman and Jonnyboya. After which we see a fake trailer for a Lynchman movie with the two running from a crazed, cybernetic army general. And we see that classic Lupin shot from the pilot of Lupin running along a brick wall with yellow spot lights on him.

(http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q281/Hendharu/Anime_Manga/Lynchman.jpg)

This shot has been referenced in so many Lupin titles and so many other animes that it is as much a staple of anime history as the giant rock chasing Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark is to film history.

Anybody else play it and notice that Sessil looks like Lupin the 3rd if they crossed him with Vash the Stampede?

I found something unique for this thread. An explicit homage. Not something that sorta looks like something used in Lupin once, but an actual reference that was even confirmed by the writer.

When watching a VHS of the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons, I thought it was kinda funny how much April looked like Fujiko from Red Jacket. Turns out it wasn't a coincidence. (http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showpost.php?p=926159&postcount=12)

That's what it seems to say, but I had always thought it was based on what April wore in her first appearance in the original comics. (http://www.miragelicensing.com/comics/mirage/two/12.jpg)
I think it's more likely her character design and reporter job were inspired by Fujiko, but the outfit comes from the Mirage books. I mean, it's been almost 25 years. He probably forgot about the comic influence when answering the question.

I dunno, this looks pretty close to me, except of course for the color. It may be more derived from the pink outfit Fujiko wears just a few moments earlier, but I can't be certain.

I also don't recall, was he saying that he got the design from an episode of Lupin, or from this movie. Because back in the 80s, this movie is one of the only things we would have had in English. So he couldn't have got it from the Red Jacket series unless he had been to Japan and seen it somewhere. This is the first thing that I thought of when you mentioned this influence, however.

Well I used both of these pictures because I'm making the connection between both the fact that the outfits are similar, and the fact that both women are holding mini-cams is also a strong connection. And yes, this is from Cagliostro.

Yeah, you were referring to the wrong character, GATSU. Emma Frost is the one wearing the skimpy white outfit. The girl right above her, I believe is the one you were referring to as Fujiko-esque.

There is an URL right below her that says Emma Frost at the end, but it's not referring to that picture of the girl in all-black. That one says Rose at the end of it's URL.

Well you can still see our confusion, right? I mean, when-ever someone has said some character looks like Fujiko, it most often has been a character in a black jumpsuit of some kind. And we were just talking about Fujiko one-piece jumpsuits a few posts above this one.

It's true, Fujiko does wear mini-skirts, but that's something that a load of female characters wear; there are much less female characters who wear jumpsuits. Fujiko did wear that shortened business suit look in Dead or Alive and Crisis in Tokyo, but she never wore a battle bikini, and she never wore a cape or a one sided shoulder guard. She has, however, worn a black or darkened jumpsuit in at least 8 of the films and I'm sure a multitude of episodes from all four series.

Has anyone seen this Lupin reference in the anime Thermae Romae? Basically in this scene from Episode 7, a sculpter from Ancient Rome is trying to scare thieves (Lupin and Jigen) away by making a statue with *cough* large male genitals. I had to censor it to make it "safe for work".

Ironically the Thermae Romae anime has been licensed in America by Discotek Media for release in 2013. But if you're like me and live in Australia or New Zealand, you can already buy Thermae Romae on DVD at your local supplier of anime, which is published by Siren Visual.

Check it out if you want an anime that is "unqiue" and Yen Press has also started publishing an English version of the manga in a beautiful large print, hardcover format.

But she wears it in Cagliostro. And I'm fairly sure most people were only able to see Cagliostro or Mamo back in the 80s, right? Did the guy say he specifically saw it in an episode of the series? Because my comparison there is pretty definitive. Even if Fujiko did wear a jumpsuit in the series, she likely wasn't also carrying a small TV camera.

Out of all the animation companies and styles of animation directors, I would have to say my favorite production house and style ever is TMS and nearly all of their overseas work for things like Animaniacs, Peter Pan and the Pirates, Galaxy Highschool, The Littles, American Tail 3, and Little Nemo.

I consider their animation quality to be extremely skilled and almost too well-crafted for some of the stuff they ended up contributing to. Their animation is so good, in fact, that I would say it rivals much of Disney's own work, which is why their style worked well along side Disney's when they animated the entire first season of Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers. And I believe many other concepts and adaptations could benefit from their unique approach and style if only they still kept up with it today.

Here's one Deviant's idea of what Ironman would look like if done by TMS.

As I mentioned over in this thread (http://www.lupinencyclopedia.com/forums/index.php?topic=291.0), the Giant Robo "Ginrei" special has several prominent references to Lupin III in it. A couple of the screenshots from there (depicting Ginrei doing the run-past-spotlights thing and taking off a wetsuit to reveal a disguise just as in Cagliostro) are missing, but the others are still there in the thread. Not surprising given that Ginrei's voice actress is none other than Clarice herself, Sumi Shimamoto.

Probably not done of purpose but I chucked when I was watching One Piece and Ussop (Voiced by Sonny Strait) said "I'm a killer not a thief" in the dub considering he's also voiced Lupin in the past. And especially because Ussop is a compulsive liar (for example he's never killed anyone) so I imagined the line from Red Jacket 145 backwards when he said that ("I'm a liar not a thief" instead of "I'm a thief not a liar".) And it made me chuckle again when I did that.

A variety show Arashi ni Shiyagare has been using the classic Lupin intro theme/gunshot letter bullet opening for each episode. It's a bit of a play on how the Lupin men have the men's lifestyle down pat.

Everyone knows Lupin's famous scene where he's running as a yellow spotlight is flashing on him. So as I was watching anime, or looking for anime to watch I found that scene referenced three times:
1) Outlaw Star - in the opening the main character nearly follows this scene to a tee, except that the enemy's rain of bullets come from behind him instead of from the left of him.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0N3L-pcGdc (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0N3L-pcGdc) (the scene starts at 0:40)
2) Red Line - A really good racing movie with animation that's similar to Mine Fujiko to iu Onna (because one of the creators from Red Line also would be in the Mine Fujiko team.) Anyhoo, during the movie, newscasters interview the Mad Brothers (Lynchman and Johnny Boy), during the interview they play a "trailer" for their made-up movie. And in the trailer we see a direct homage to the scene.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSYML5w5bgQ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSYML5w5bgQ) (the scene starts at 0:07)
3) Mouse - As I was looking for another heist/thief anime I came upon Mouse... good Lord it's terrible, the plethora of distasteful fanservice makes me want to beat the creators with a bat wrapped with barb wire, but that's besides the point, in the opening we see a scene that has the camera angle and that silly run of the Lupin scene, but they discard the yellow light and wall. And after that we see Mouse being chased be police in a yellow car that looks a bit like Lupin's Mercedes SSK. But sadly the opening doesn't show much of the car.

I was impressed when I noticed that reference in "Redline." I'm so excited every time I see a subtle Lupin reference like that.

Actually, what I'd really like to see, is somebody take all known Lupin and Other Anime uses of that "spot light running shot," and blend/morph them into each other. Because I tried to do that once, but I only did it with the ones from Lupin material. I didn't realize multiple other animes did it as well.

Gustav is the head guard in Cagliostro. Jodo is the butler. To quote Mr. Cube, "You better check yo self before you wreck yo self".

I don't know who here has ever played Castlevania games, but there are an insane amount of references to Castle of Cagliostro in it. Almost all of the references are related to the appearance of the castles in the games. But in one of them (Symphony of the Night), if I remember correctly, in a certain part of the game to progress you need to obtain a gold and silver ring and go to a large clock (that is ornamented with a goat), and when the minute and hour hand become one, you are able to progress.
And since I love both Castlevania and Lupin I am just blown away by their homages to Lupin! Anyhoo, to see some images and other stuff about it click the links:

In Steins;Gate, episode 10, the main character is explaining some "Future Gadgets" he had created and one of them is called the "Once Again I've Connected Something Useless Again, by Goemon" which he says in a very somber Goemon-esque voice. The Gadget is a hair-dryer that uses the waste heat from a vacuum...

If you loved the airplane porn in Albatross, Wings of Death, you will go crazy for the stuff Miyazaki designed for The Wind Rises.

Edit: Oh, and the Talespin guys copped to (http://starflashes.tripod.com/ology/emuck.html) being fans of Cagiostro and Miyazaki in general.  8)

Edit 2: Kermit the Third (http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/nailbiter111/news/?a=90301)?  ::)

Edit 3: Looks like the Bebop/Space Dandy guy name-dropped Lupin again, this time in The Atlantic (http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2014/01/can-em-cowboy-bebop-em-s-creator-make-more-people-take-anime-seriously/282806/).

Apparently, FOX's ADHD "Ultimate Anime Hero" sketch features the Lupin car (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-01-13/ultimate-anime-hero-is-basically-undefeatable).

Edit: So I guess Fozzie drives a yellow fiat (http://www.aintitcool.com/node/65858), too?  ::)

Edit 2: Does Lupin appear to be in the audience of 16:24 of Creamy Mami 45 (http://animesols.com/videos/258) to you, too?

Edit 3: I only saw a clip of Frozen, but Disney is still "borrowing" from Cagliostro, this time with that scene where Lupin gets "stabbies" from a bunch of swords at the same time.

Edit 4: Looks like the next episode of Polymar (http://animesols.com/videos/263) [not this one] has a thief named Carsene Popin.  :P

Very well spotted. COBRA is an excellent show and I suggest people check it out. Yuji Ohno composed the opening and closing songs, for those who didn't know.

I took some screenshots of the cameos mentioned.

There is a video game called Elevator Action Deluxe, the main charater dresses very similar to Lupin III, and he uses a gun that looks close to the Walther P-38. The sequences in the clip below are also similar to the Cowboy Bebop opening.

The first image is from Red Riding Hood Chacha, which parodies the flower/flag scene from Cagliostro. The second image is from Ponyo, parodying the Cagliostro car chase scene. And the third, fourth, and fifth images are from Giant Robo: Gin-Rei Special.

Wasn't aware that Roger Moore's seen Cagliostro (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvJp1X3qiog).  :P [Note that that's a joke link, unless he responds to my Tweet.]

Edit: Another 'calling card' joke, this time in Azazel, episode 22. Also, the prior episodes revolve around a murder mystery where one of the comedians is essentially a 'bootleg' Conan.  ;D

Update: If you look carefully at the Pink Lupin eyecatches, you'll notice a magician's hat. It's he same one worn by Detective Conan creator's Gosho Aoyama's Magic Kaito.  8)

Like the first green jacket episode, in Episode 7 of the Death Note dorama streaming on Crunchyroll, Light dresses like a janitor to sneak into a corporate building.

Update: In the fifth volume of Assassination Classroom, they got Koro-sensei paraphrasing Zenitagata's 'stole something precious' line from Cagliostro. In AC's case, though, they changed the object from 'your heart' to 'your tentacles'.  :P

Update 2: The second episode (http://www.crunchyroll.com/dd-fist-of-the-north-star/episode-2-three-brothers-not-dango-the-clock-towers-elevator-686369) of Hokuto no Ken DD 2 has a clocktower gag reminiscent of Cagliostro.

Update 3: DD Fist of the North Star II has a reference to Heiji Zenigata, Pops' ancestor.

Update 4: This is stretching it, but Girls and Panzer 'homage' to Cagliostro (http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2016/01/04/video-homage-to-lupin-iii-the-castle-of-cagliostro-discovered-in-girls-und-panzer-oav).

Update 5:  This is technically an old Lupin reference in the new Lupin, but if you check out the background of the ball of blue jacket 22, you'll notice the bad guy from the Miyazaki episode Wings of Albatross is there.  8)

In episode 11 or 12 of the new series, Fujiko was concerned when Lupin was dreaming, she said something along the lines of Lupin doesn't dream. Which is probably a reference to the Mystery of Mamo.
Title: Re: Lupin References/homages
Post by: GATSU on August 23, 2016, 12:05:26 PM
The end of the first half of the first episode of 'Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto' made fun of that 'steal your heart' line from Cagliostro.

Edit: Also, volume 10 of Assassination Classroom has a silhouette of Lupin and Zenigata and Koro-sensei dressed as Clarisse.  ;D

Edit 2: Oh, and there's a visual pun involving Jigen near the end of the second U.S. volume of the Princess Jellyfish manga.

Edit 3: Just noticed a certain nameless Monkey Punch character is used as a 'calling card' for Donnie Yen's Iron Monkey around the 1:59 mark of this trailer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mt4bONhNenY).  8)

Edit 4: Close, but you need to dye your hair black to complete the green jacket look, Mr. Gosling (http://themoviebox.net/9643).  ;)

It's not technically an homage, since that place probably exists IRL. But that pagoda featured in the background of the car chase scene in the Fuma Lupin special re-appeared in the first episode of Yuri!! On Ice, currently streaming on Crunchyroll. Since the show is by Madhouse, they probably hired some of the same animators who worked on Fuma to redraw it. But if you want a direct connection, Sayo Yamamoto, who worked on Fujiko, is also involved with Yuri. 8)

Edit: BTW, they talk more about the building here (http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2016/10/22/feature-anime-vs-real-life-yuri-on-ice).

The cabin Mai is aiming at in episode 63 of DB Super (http://www.crunchyroll.com/dragon-ball-super) is the one which gets blown up in that Lupin pilot and the original green jacket intro.

Edit: Also, in this episode (http://www.crunchyroll.com/dragon-ball-super/episode-69-goku-vs-arale-a-ridiculous-battle-will-end-the-earth-723751), Dr. Slump appears to drive the same Fiat as Lupin, and Vegeta hangs from a tree like Lupin in Cagliostro. >_<

Edit 2: It's not Lupin, but there's an upcoming exhibit on a Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans model called Lupus (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2017-01-09/gundam-iron-blooded-orphans-exhibition-will-reveal-barbatos-new-form/.110785). Does that count?  :P

Edit 3: The last two episodes of Tiger Mask W-available-intro'ed a grey tiger masked wrestler calling himself, 'The Third'.

Edit 4: The Persona 5 guy cited Arsene Lupin (https://www.forbes.com/sites/olliebarder/2017/03/05/katsura-hashino-talks-about-his-work-on-persona-5/#7df82a4d439a) as an influence.

That's because the human brain tends to function on a pattern-recognition basis coupled with a disdain for disorder or randomness. So people are bound to make
connections that are honestly just coincidences.

However, in terms of real, bona fide Lupin III references, that new Persona 5 games is filled with it, along with references to european, asian, and american literature and
heroic figures.
