Welcome to LupintheThird.com!


Hello everyone! Welcome to LupintheThird.com, an unofficial page where we celebrate the many adventures of Lupin the Third
the long-running multimedia franchise birthed over 40 years ago in the August of 1967. 

This site is slowly being rebuilt with fresh (and refreshed) content about the franchise. 
If you're in a hurry to have your burning Lupin question answered, you might check out the Lupin the Third Forums
look up the related title on Lupin III Encyclopediaor, if you're really hurting, you should probably see a doctor about that, 
or just message us on Twitter @Lupinthe3rdcom.

If you miss the old site, you can still see most of its content through its Web Archive.
You might also want to visit Discotek Media's website.

Thanks for stopping by!
