Ratings & Reviews
THINGS TO BE AWARE OF for this release
by GEORGE C
1) This release is NOT a hybrid release. It is a Japanese, sub-only release!!! TMS, the owners of the Lupin III anime series, required Discotek to do separate English and Japanese releases of Lupin Part 4!!!! This was NOT Discotek's decision!!!
2) The music tracks and intros between the English (Cartoon Network version) and Japanese releases are different!
3) All else is pretty much identical so it's your choice on whether you want to buy one version or the other OR buy both releases. It stinks but that's what we're stuck with in the North American release of Lupin Part 4! Hopefully, TMS doesn't impose the same restriction with Lupin Part 5's home video release in North America, too!
4) It is an excellent series, either way. This is the best-looking Lupin III TV series I've seen and I would recommend it regardless of which audio track version you buy!
Lupin the 3rd Part 4 TV series in its original Japanese
I agree with the previous review that, unfortunately, TMS forced a separate release for the English and Japanese language release of this Lupin the 3rd part 4 TV series box set. I also wished it could have been with both Japanese language w/english sub. and English language. That said, I'm happy to say, I own both box sets. In the Japanese language edition, the opening and closing credits are different, however, everything else is the same. It's still fun to watch. Reminds me of my college days when I would be really happy to be able to watch Lupin and other anime with subtitles so that I would know what they are saying.
It's Lupin, what can I say, it's fun to watch! It's nice to be able to watch it with the original voice actors. Tony Oliver and company also does an excellent job for the English dub. A bit of trivia for the Japanese release: The voice actor who now does the voice for inspector Zenigata used to voice Lupin many years ago.
