Two of the greatest personages in manga and anime cross paths in Lupin III vs Detective Conan, the latest of the highly rated Lupin III TV specials, which broke Japanese television ratings records when it aired in late March this year. The cunning and resourceful Arsène Lupin III, aided by his faithful gang of allies, sets his sights upon the one treasure which he has never been able to fully steal, while a royal conspiracy of the greatest magnitude is afoot in the background, reaching its tentacles into as far as Japan, beckoning the great detective Edogawa Conan to get involved. These two legendary figures soon collide in a characteristic myriad of action, mystery and yes, even comedy, which we are pleased to bring to you in association with the Detective Conan Translation Project. Enjoy the ride; we know we sure did.

Continuing the tradition from Froth-Bite days, we’re releasing yet another Lupin TV special. This is the latest one, airing during the summer of 2008. It comes with all the cliche goodies of recent Lupin series – hot babe, cool action, silly comic relief, relaxing music, and the list goes on and on…
Fujiko sends Lupin on a wild goose chase like always, and in the end he betrays her? And worst of all, he can’t seem to remember why? Oh no, our favorite thief is suffering from amnesia (or is it Alzheimer’s?) Maybe Lupin is losing his touch.
A must-see for Lupin fans!
An additional note on Lupin series: as some of you may have heard, there is another TV special coming this late March—Lupin vs Conan. I’m planning to work on this series as well as soon as the footage is available, with possible re-release when DVD is available later.
