This is a recap page for the Lupin III anime series. TV series, feature films, TV films, and assorted other goodies are here. Each section is listed in chronological order.

As this series is a Long Runner, there's a lot to recap. Feel free to help yourself to an episode or two. Perhaps a TV movie, if that's more your taste. Lupin certainly would.
