* BrokenBase: Funimation's dub, as usual. Michelle Ruff, Josh Grelle, and Richard Epcar were praised for their performances as Fujiko, Oscar and Zenigata respectively, but others, like Sonny Strait as Lupin, have lead to debates as to whether it fits the character.
** That said, even detractors admitted that, at the very least, Funimation finally learned how to pronounce the character names right, when they had been mispronounced in all of their previous efforts with the franchise.

* AwesomeArt: Quite possibly the best-looking character designs for any Lupin anime, and yes that may even include ''Cagliostro''.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Fujiko's last scene with [[spoiler:Aisha]]. Fujiko [[spoiler:pulling her off of life-support and taking her to the beach where the girl get's to watch Fujiko play in the ocean before she dies]]. Some (like Lupin) see it as one of Fujiko's darkest KickTheDog moments where she forces a girl [[spoiler:beaten and abused all her life to the point of mobility]] to watch her enjoy the things [[spoiler:Aisha]] cannot; all to get back at her [[spoiler:for tampering with her memories and kickstarting the series]]. Others see it as a PetTheDog moment where Fujiko [[spoiler:let's Aisha experience her pleasure vicariously, which she'd been doing for the whole series, except this time it isn't against Fujiko's own will]] all in order to let her die [[LetThemDieHappy happy]] and [[IDieFree free]]; this interpretation does jive with her dismissal of [[spoiler:Aisha's mother for leaving her in that trapped state]]. The series shows Fujiko capable of both kindness (her role as a governess did show she was genuinely affectionate, especially to children) and pointless cruelty (such as in episode 8 where she casually murders a pair of security guards), so both interpretations are valid.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Count Luis Yu Almeida]] stands out from the dark cast, which consists of thieves, murderers, seductresses, assassins, and gang bosses [[VillainProtagonist as the protagonists]]. The [[DiabolicalMastermind mastermind]] behind horrible human experimentation and the owner of Glaucus Pharmaceuticals, Count Almeida and his scientists conducted Cold War experiments, including mind control, hypnosis, memory and personality manipulation, sensory deprivation, physical abuse, and rape. During the course of these experiments, Almeida convinced two scientists, Dr. Fritz Kaiser and his wife, to include their young daughter in the experimental trials, before murdering Dr. Kaiser. Almeida [[FakeMemories adds the memories]] of the tortures he puts his other experimental subjects through to her memories. Thirteen years later, we see how insane this woman has gone from everything the Count has done to her. Glaucus Pharmaceuticals is now kidnapping children and adults, disguising human experimentation as cult fanatics, and keeping surveillance almost everywhere. Based on all the evidence Lupin compiles on Almeida's guilt, the Count's only desire was to create the perfect slave. The revelation that [[spoiler:Luis is already dead by the time the series takes place]] only drives in the injustice of all he has done.
