If you are an anime fan who doesn't know of Lupin III, you must be living under a rock. He's the world's best thief, and this is the origin of all of his exploits. The story is very episodic in nature. Almost each chapter is its own stand alone story, and each chapter provides us with what can be considered tastless laughs. If you don't like sexual humor, you might as well stay away. Now then, my one true complaint about this series is the art. The series is over 40 years old, and this really shows in the artwork. Everything is crudely drawn, and sometimes its hard to make out what happens. Finally, we get to the characters. In the actual context of the manga, they aren't that well developed, yet if you know the characters, it is really interesting to see their origins. Overall, if you are a fan of the franchise, or are looking for some perverted laughs, this is perfect for you.
