Grandson of the one and only Arsène Lupin, the gallant white-gloved thief created by Maurice Leblanc, contemporary of Conan Doyle, will find himself embroiled in an unparalleled adventure where, accompanied by a pair of magnificent renegades, he will not only try to find and steal the mythical diary of Professor Bresson but will, in passing, find a way to reveal a Nazi conspiration, escape from the cops and save the world. This is a spirited, frisky and painstaking anime from Takeshi Koike (out-and-out fan of Frank Miller) based on a no less fabulous manga signed by Monkey Punch. The whole thing started way back... The first cartoons by Lupin III date from 1967. The first TV images from 1972, but myths will be myths... and the centuries go by.
