Frenetic!

Think I'll go with the subtitled version, if I have a choice. I find the dubbed voices annoying.

Blu-Ray and DVD release on Jan 12, 2021, Digital on Dec 15, 2020.

Might be the only way I can see it, since the local theaters are still closed for the Oct 18th and 21st showings

Is it a little weird that it's a kids' movie?  I thought the original anime was pretty R-rated.

Dave, from the reviews I've read, this Lupin is more in line with the Hayao Miyazaki version from CASTLE OF CAGLIOSTRO, than Monkey Punch's original.

Even Monkey Punch admitted his Lupin wouldn't be as nice or honorable to Clarisse as he was in CAGLIOSTRO.

Cagliostro is the only Miyazaki I haven't seen.  Weird that this one property is so all over the map in terms of the age of the target audience - this is the type of thing I was thinking about: https://youtu.be/J8CYgHlIL5o (CAUTION: EXTREMELY NSFW)

That clip there is also exhibit A in why I haven't really bothered to dig in to a lot of anime - the casual violence and rote degradation of all the female characters is (to say the least) off-putting to me.

Which isn't to say that we don't have the same problem in the West with appropriate presentation of legacy characters, of course.  But this feels like if a Jeffrey Epstein biopic was reimagined as Richie Rich.

Well, the original manga version of Lupin III was, in Monkey Punch's own words, "could be considered a very evil man".

When the TV anime version came out in Japan, he was toned down quite a bit. This is especially true when Hayeo Miyazaki directed 2 of the more famous TV episodes in the 1980s Lupin III series, namely "Wings of Death - Albatross" and "Farewell Lovely Lupin". This, in combination with the Castle Cagliostro movie, cemented the "lovable rogue" version in the minds of Japanese audiences.

Some backstory on Lupin III and Castle Cagliostro

And as Dave showed, there are anime versions of Lupin III intended for older fans that are closer to the original Monkey Punch manga version than Miyazaki's.

Apart from Cagliostro, I have seen a few episodes of the different Lupin
series from the first to the latest. And there was definitely tone
differences between them, but nothing Iíve seen was as adult as that
clip Dave posted. Didnít even know Lupin shows like that existed.
