80 – Bootlegg’d – Lupin III – The Mystery of Mamo

Join the Cartoncasters for this special Bootlegg’d segment, where we look at an anime film for the first time. Lupin III is a very successful, long running franchise, which showcases a Japanese twist on the much beloved spy genre. Its long history produced many incarnations of Lupin III with wildly varying quality, similar to the history of James Bond. The Mystery of Mamo is one of the more beloved examples, with all that quick-witted Lupin goodness, mildly soured by an emergency injection of Heinlein right at the finish.
