Japan's most beloved criminal arrives stateside!,
This review is from: Lupin the 3rd - The World's Most Wanted (TV Series, Vol. 1) (DVD)
I love the whimsical, fun adventures of Lupin III. The show strikes a nice balance between action, drama, and comedy. The drawing style is very quaint too... it just basically indicates right off the bat that you're gonna have a rollicking good time watching the show.
The English dub is very fresh and fun to listen to. Some updated cultural references are thrown in to make the show not so much dated (the show is supposed to be set in the 1970s), but it doesn't bother most people, especially me. For those that like to listen to the original Japanese with the English subtitles, well, hopefully you know some good Japanese, because the subtitles look like they were translated into simplified English. I think some of the Japanese nuances may have been lost in the English subtitles. That's probably the only drawback to this DVD.
If you're into chases all over the world, some wild action, and some really funny stuff, you can't go wrong with Lupin III.
