I think there are two kinds of people in this world. There are those who love Lupin III, and those who haven't heard of Lupin III yet.
When Monkey Punch passed away, I felt like I should do something to commemorate this important character, who I firmly believe to be one of Japan's most important pop culture exports. As usual for when I draw Lupin, I went with the green jacket, because The Castle of Cagliostro was my introduction to the world of Lupin and still one of my all time most favorite movies. If you like red instead, that's nice, but irrelevant.

Lupin was one of the first animes I ever watched, when I heard that the creator had passed away it felt like another great part of literature and animation had come to an end. We seem to be losin' many of the golden creators of fiction these past few years.
Right on! There is a big wide world of Lupin and the gang to dive into, and the great thing is there's no wrong place to start. I'd probably recommend a few episodes of the 70's red Jacket series to begin with though, just to get a sense of who the characters are. It's all pretty accessible and a lot of it is easy to find now. I hope you have a good time with it.
