Lupin the Third Manga
Lupin The Third manga first appeared on the Weekly Manga Action back in August 10, 1967. This spawned a media franchise which included numerous manga, two versions of an animated pilot movie, five anime TV series, six theatrically-released animated feature films, two live-action movies, a two-part animated theatrical short film, five OVA works, 26 animated TV specials, two musicals and music CDs, plus video games. Phew!
Almost five decades after it was created, Lupin The Third remains popular, with the fifth anime series airing in Japan and Italy back in 2015. It also enjoyed critical acclaim with the praise being aimed at the characterization of its lead characters and their amazing chemistry. The voice acting in Japanese and English versions plus soundtracks of the anime adaptations also got similar compliments.
However, some of the franchise’s installments, like those of the TV specials have received criticism for being ?formulaic?. Their manga has also been noted by critics and fans alike for its darker tone compared to the anime. It had explicit depictions of sex and violence. This was a dark contrast with the mostly family-friendly animated versions. Then again, this didn?t stop its popularity from being part even of New Year?s Eve 2017 celebrations.
