Recap: Lupin III (Red Jacket)

Shin Lupin III ("Red Jacket") - 1977

For tropes associated with the series as a whole, see our Anime.Lupin III Red Jacket page.

Shin Lupin III (New Lupin III), often called the Red Jacket series, was produced by TMS Entertainment. Yasuo Yamada, Kiyoshi Kobayashi, and Gorō Naya returned to reprise their characters from the first series, while the role of Fujiko was played by Eiko Masuyama (who had played her in the 1969 pilot film), and Makio Inoue played Goemon.

The first 79 episodes were dubbed into English by the now-defunct Geneon, who gave the series a tongue-in-cheek semi-Gag Dub, a move that included changing most of the episode titles to punny pop-culture references; the English titles for these episodes are included in parenthesis. The Geneon dub featured Tony Oliver as Lupin, Michelle Ruff as Fujiko, Lex Lang as Goemon, Richard Epcar (who also directed the dub) as Jigen, and Jake Martin as Zenigata.

In addition, the two episodes directed by Hayao Miyazaki (#145 and #155) were released years earlier by the long-shuttered Streamline Pictures as "Tales of the Wolf". Their dub cast Bob Bergen as Lupin, Edie Merman as Fujiko, Steve Kramer as Goemon, Steve Bulen as Jigen and David Povall as Zenigata.

Several episodes of the Geneon dub are now available for streaming on Hulu. Link here.
