He's #2 after Death Note's Light Yagami. Thanks to Robert Tena at Vintage Anime Fans on FB for the tip.

Yeah, this sounds pretty fair for Lupin. Never forget that he is a thief and criminal and that he's got a police officer constantly hounding him. Whether it's the "Tom and Jerry Ghibli adventure" antics or the film-noir Green Jacket thief, that is the core of his character.

I think that his being a lovable anti-hero was a historical precedent that worked out great for him, which is why he's Number 2.
