A great book for those who enjoy the Lupin anime franchise

by -

This 200 page book includes character information, sketches, and production information which are all really fun to look at and read. As well, most of the book is a complete guide of all the animated works from Part 1 all the way through Part 6 in release order.

The episode, tv specials, and movie summaries include the date released, name of the director, and a screen shot from the episode. (Some of the more popular specials and movies have a bit more information about them than others.)

As someone who has seen a lot, but not all of the Lupin franchise, this book has made me want to check out the parts I have not seen way more than reading an internet wiki ever did!

This 50th Anniversary Hardbound Book of Lupin is Exceptional

by -

This full color book by one of the most notable experts on Lupin is a great guide to all the Lupin animated productions up to 2022. Not only Nelson, but TMS Entertainment and Monkey Punch Studios also contributes much to this Anniversary Edition.

There are lots of drawings/Illustrations/Artwork that I've seen before, but there are many that I've not seen before either. The commentary/Illustrations on all the Lupin TV Shows 1-6, and all the Movies are all presented as they were originally released from the 1970's to 2022 which is helpful/wonderful.

Highly recommended for covering every single episode of the TV series with production year, Director, and additional tidbits that I never knew until purchasing this book, so if you're a Lupin fan then this is a great addition to your collection.

News is to expect more releases to celebrate Lupin's 50th, so look for an RPG board game and other items TBD for 2023. Enjoy!

Beautiful homage to an old yet beloved franchise


I have been following Lupin for over a decade. This 50th anniversary book is not only beautiful but it will leave you asking for more. Just over 200 pages there are plenty of memories to reminisce upon for the older fans and for newer lupin fans, you will not be disappointed. 100% pick up if you are even a little interested in the Lupin franchise.
