Lupin the 3rd is one of the most recognized TV series in Japanese animation. The stories are action-orientated, and they have both slapstick and seriousness, featuring a good-willed gang of thieves: Lupin, Jigen, Goemon & Fujiko, all pursued by Inspector Zenigata who swears to capture them one day. Since the broadcast of the first episode in 1971, Lupin the 3rd TV Series have been entertaining many generations of fans. Notable episodes include the ones directed by Hayao MIYAZAKI.
The event organized by Japan Expo on Thursday, July 4 at 6 pm features the very first episode of the first series, an OAV realized for the 50th anniversary of Lupin, and the film Fujiko’s Lie: a tribute to its creator, Monkey Punch, who passed away last April.
