About Lupin the 3rd The Mystery of Mamo DVD

This edition of Lupin the 3rd: The Mystery of Mamo includes all four English dubs: the 1978 version for Japan Airlines, the 1995 Streamline dub, the 1996 Manga Video dub, and the 2003 Pioneer/Geneon dub.

The world's most wanted master thief, Lupin the Third, is dead! Despite a coroner's report, Interpol Inspector Zenigata is skeptical and discovers that Lupin is actually alive and well and stealing! But who had set up Lupin's death and why?

For now, questions are set aside, as Lupin, Jigen, and Goemon immediately embark to Egypt to pilfer a stone artifact from a pyramid, with Zenigata in hot pursuit. But Fujiko, lured by the promise of eternal youth and beauty by the sinister and enigmatic scientist known as Mamo, double-crosses Lupin and steals the stone.

Just Feels Long

by -

This is the first Lupin anime that I simply did not enjoy. The first and second series had some flaws that I can excuse with age, but this was just a difficult sit. I really wanted to enjoy this, even if it was only as a historical artifact, but... the plot was just too meandering and while I know and enjoy the goifiness of Lupin, here he just felt like Jerry Lewis most of the time. The most entertainment I got was from the historical notes in the extras, which were genuinely cool. There weren't really any technical issues or anything, the animation was great for its time, it just felt long.

4 English Dubs?!

I've been watching Lupin the 3rd for a long time, but I never bought this when Pioneer released this film around the same time as the TV series on Adult Swim, and I'm kind of glad I didn't because I can watch 5 different versions of this film and study different person's takes on our beloved classic characters. If I could have Tony Oliver's Lupin and Michelle Ruff's Fujiko interact with the prior version of Mamo played by Robert Alexrod (Lord Zedd from Power Rangers) I would be in heaven. Still, the animation is no Castle of Caligostro, but several classical pieces of art including Salvador Dali's Melting Clocks, make cameo appearances in Mamo's lair. I'd say only for die hard Lupin fans.

A Must See Classic Lupin Film!


This is a classic Lupin film, the first of them for that matter. It's got classic Bond-esque action and highly entertaining interplay/drama between the main cast with a truly wild and surreal conclusion that somehow just works. The art direction is also full of character and style, even if its not quite as refined as Cagliostro a year later would be. It also features one of the few truly menacing and memorable villains in the series. Just as great and important in the Lupin legacy as Cagliostro, but for completely unique reasons.

A very good film

It's not a 5 star movie, but a solid 4 for sure. There are 4 dubbs with this movie, so you may wish to try them all, it does make a difference. Personally, I thought the Streamline dub was the best, although the Geneon and Manga dubs were good as well.
