*** The replacement of the original cast with the above-mentioned actors came about due to budget troubles at TMS and caused quite a bit of angst. TMS wanted to do an OVA with movie-quality animation, but couldn't do that and still afford the original five actors (who were, at the time, the highest-paid voice actors in Japan) on the budget provided.\\
\\
This ended up causing a rift between Monkey Punch and Creator/YasuoYamada, as TMS had asked Monkey Punch his opinion on replacing Yamada. His answer was actually a noncommittal "I may not like it, but it's your show; I really can't tell you what to do." Unfortunately, through PoorCommunicationKills, it was relayed to Yamada as something akin to "Go ahead and fire him." Even though Monkey Punch, who had fostered a good working relationship with Yamada, tried personally to smooth things over (and even though the experiment of replacing the main ''Lupin'' cast was deemed a catastrophic failure), their relationship remained strained even at Yamada's death in 1995.

* RealitySubtext: When the original manga series went on hiatus in the late 60s for three years, the first post-hiatus chapter was about Lupin trying to escape prison, after having been arrested...three years prior.
** Both the first chapter of the second manga, and first episode of the second anime series take place five years after the conclusion of the previous series...the same amount of time that had passed in real life as well.

** The third TV series ([[Anime/LupinIIIPinkJacket "Pink Jacket"]]) has never been legally seen outside of Japan. In fact, the only product of that era to make it to foreign shores was ''Anime/LegendOfTheGoldOfBabylon''.

*** "Pink Jacket" was actually available in Italy since 1987,named as "L'incorreggibile Lupin",and had several re-runs on Mediaset channels up to the early years of the new millenium. It was anyway the least liked series,even in Italy
