Lupin the IIIrd has appeared in manga, live action films, anime, video games, and now CG animation. Lupin the IIIrd: The First will be the first computer generated feature film about the gentleman thief.
Whether we want it or not, anime is moving in the direction of CGI. Fortunately, this Lupin film appears much more fluid than CG anime films like Human Lost.
While I prefer Lupin’s darker OVA series it’s great to see high quality work produced for audiences of all ages. Whatever the medium, or target audience, Lupin will always be stealing our hearts.
