    Another Solid Lupin Adventure

    First off I'm glad I was able to pick this up in an actual Best Buy store, especially a Lupin The 3rd release! Discotek's release is pretty slick with a nice slipcover and some great art on the case cover, it's also reversible. This is also the 2nd Blu-ray release from Discotek and it looks pretty stunning in HD. It also helps that the animation is well done. Clocking in a little under an hour Jigen's Gravestone is divided into 2 episodes full of action and adventure. This is a Lupin & Jigen story, it follows the Woman Called Fujiko Mine series right where these 2 characters start their partnership. So this is more of a gritty take on the series, stylized violence and Fujiko fan service are presented so this one isn't for kiddies. What makes this release a bit more special is Discotek commissioned their 1st English Dub for this one! The cast is pretty solid with actors new to the franchise, Keith Silverstein is excellent as Lupin I wouldn't mind hearing him voice the master thief again. If you know these iconic characters and enjoy their adventures you'll enjoy this story but I also think this can be it's own stand alone thing. It's a more mature take on the series but has all the elements that make Lupin the 3rd fun and enjoyable. *Support this release, Discotek will be watching closely and if it does well who knows we could get more dubbed Lupin releases!

    i was a big fan of the original american launch of lupin. I tried watching the animation of fujiko mine just to be disappointed but upon seeing the different style this had was interested in trying this one out. While i do like the style better i just wasn't as sucked into this as much as i was the older series and movies. Give it a shot with an open mind just know it isn't old school lupin.

    A good follow-up to The Woman Called Fujiko Mine

    While this isn't the old school Lupin the Third cartoon with a lot of hokie humor (and dubbed with far too much pop culture referenced), these newer cartoons are well animated and still provide the same sort of clever story telling as before. Very enjoyable, even if a little on the short side.

    What I really appreciate about the 'Lupin' movies, as well as the 'Fujiko Mine' series, is the way that they flesh out the 'Lupin' universe. They're the perfect vehicles to do what the series didn't and couldn't do. And besides, it's 'Lupin'. It's obviously worth watching!

    This is one of my favorite Lupin movies. It has a little more serious tone compared to the other ones, but the animation is superb.
