Lupin III (ルパン三世, Rupan Sansei) is the first TV anime adaptation of Monkey Punch’s manga series of the same name. Written by Yoshikawa Souji (吉川惣司), with character designs by Ootsuka Yasuo (大塚康生), it was directed originally by Oosumi Masaaki (大隅正秋) and later by Miyazaki Hayao (宮崎駿) and Takahata Isao (高畑勲) under the name “A Productions“. It aired on Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation in two seasons from October 24, 1971 to March 26, 1972.
If you are looking for a really cool anime with lots of action, adventure and comedy, then this is a must! It might as well be one of the best classics in its genre, so I really recommend it to you!
