Lupin III Wiki

Lupin III is a comic written and drawn by Monkey Punch, serialized in Futabasha's Weekly Manga Action magazine between 1967 and 1972. It follows the adventures of Lupin III, grandson of Arsène Lupin, the gentleman thief of Maurice Leblanc's series of novels.

The 129 chapters that compose Lupin III were printed and collected together with an extra chapter in tankōbon (単行本?) volumes by Futabasha. Later, Chuokoron-Shinsha collected and printed only 109 chapters. Many chapters got an anime adaptation from TMS Entertainment. In 2019, due to the passing of Monkey Punch, stories were reprinted in Manga Action No. 15 as a tribute as well as a greatest hits compilation was printed. This compilation was printed in English as Lupin III Greatest Heists.

Lupin III is divided into two halves: Lupin III (ルパン三世 Rupan Sansei?) (serialized between August 10, 1967 to May 22, 1969) and Lupin III New Adventures (ルパン三世・新冒険 Rupan Sansei - Shin bōken?) (serialized between August 12, 1971 to April, 27 1972).

Notably, in the first halve of Lupin III, each appearance of Fujiko Mine in a chapter was a distinct character whereas in the second halve she became a fixed recurring character.

Between the two serializations, the magazine published the one-shot "Lupin III Gaiden" (ルパン三世外伝?) on March 26, 1970 for the Japan World Exposition but it was never collected in a volume run of the series. It was not reprinted until Lupin III Official Magazine. It was later published in the book Lupin III Uncollected Collection.

Production

The original chapters in Weekly Manga Action were often in color however when it was collected into volumes, the series had changed to black and white throughout the chapters.

When the manga was prepublished in Weekly Manga Action, some chapters were divided into series however when it was collected into volumes under Power Comics, the series was dropped and the chapters were rearranged. Some chapters also originally started with "This Month's Theme" (今月のテーマ Kongetsu no tēma). Also, some chapters were originally nameless but was given a name for Power Comics and further volumes.[1]

Lupin III New Adventures only received a partial English translation due to that it was an adaptation of the Chuokoron-Shinsha publication series that skipped chapters rather than from Futabasha that had the complete run. The ten missing chapters have been fan translated into English.

Editors

Lupin III manga has two primarly editors: Futabasha and Chuokoron-Shinsha. When these editors collected and reprinted the chapters in tankōbon (単行本?) volumes, the concept of series in the original chapters was dropped and all the 94 chapters were rearranged with Lupin III New Adventures chapters. In USA, Tokyopop took the rights to publish the official translation of the manga in English. It base material is the Chuokoron-Shinsha edition.

Translation

As of 2022 Lupin III only received a partially English translation and a complete Italian translation.

Tokyopop (US)

In 2002, manga publisher Tokyopop decided to bring Lupin III to the United States and collected the stories in fourteen volumes. These were based off the 1989 Chuokoron-shinsha volumes publication that skipped 10 chapters rather than the original Weekly Manga Action prepublication or the later Futabasha versions that collected all the chapters. When it was announced, the news stressed that it would use the original manga reading format of right to left rather than adapting to left to right that was still a practice at the time.[2]

Similar to the Geneon dub of Part II, liberties were taken on its translation by changing the chapter names into references, changing lines into jokes, courser language or using 1960s beatnik talk however this varied throughout the run. There were also typos regarding translating character names.

Italian Versions

In Italy the chapters were published by Star Comics in the Orion series in thirteen volumes from September 2002 to September 2003. Like Tokyopop, the volumes were based off the 1989 Chuokoron-shinsha volumes publication that skipped ten chapters.

Between November 2016 and May 2017, Panini Comics in the Planet Manga series collected all the chapters in fourteen volumes with the ten unpublished chapters from the previous edition.

Fan Scanlations

The practice of fan scanlations is illegal and can lead to the arrest of any perpetrators. However, as for 2022, Lupin III didn't received a complete translation in English so fan scanlations is the only source to read the manga entirely.
