Welcome to LupintheThird.com!

Hello everyone! Welcome to LupintheThird.com, an unofficial page where we celebrate the many adventures of Lupin the Thirda long-running multimedia franchise born over 40 years ago in August of 1967. This site is still in a "rebuilding" state, so if you're in a hurry to have your burning Lupin question answered, you might check out the Lupin the Third Forumslook up the related title on Lupin III Encyclopediaor just message us on Twitter @Lupinthe3rdcom
If you're a new fan and just want to know what's out there and what's good (or at least, what I think is good), maybe check out the two-part article I wrote for Anime News Network this year.

If you miss the old site, we are gradually re-adding and improving not only that content, but new items as well. Thank you for your patience in the meantime.
