Lupin the Third goes live-action
You're looking at a sneak-peek of actor Shun Oguri portraying none other than Lupin himself in an upcoming live-action adaptation of Lupin the Third. I'm ashamed to admit that I knew nothing of the Lupin series until Adult Swim started airing it years ago, but I quickly became a huge fan. I find the cast of characters in the Lupin franchise is a wonderfully fleshed-out and interesting gang. It's what makes the series so much fun to watch! It's hard to dislike watching the bad guys when they're so damn personable!
As far as a live-action adaptation goes, I'm really down for anything. I wouldn't say that the idea is one I'm jumping out of my skin to see, but I'll certainly give it a chance. I've gotten plenty of enjoyment out of the animated antics of Lupin and the gang, some of which would certainly translate to real-life. I just hope that this upcoming movie adaptation doesn't lose some of the personality and wackiness that the show offers.
That's my two cents on Lupin the Third's live-action film, but what do you have to say? Share a tweet at @animeyour way or comment here and let us know!
