Lupin III Part II, also known as Shin Lupin III (New Lupin III) or the Red Jacket series, is the second Lupin III television series. After reruns made the first series a fan favorite, the second TV series was produced and set five years after the first series. Donning a red jacket, Lupin reunited with Jigen, Goemon, and Fujiko to resume their thieving ways. This series retained the comic tone Miyazaki and Takahata brought to the close of the first series. While the darker tones of the manga were left out, many of the manga stories were adapted into episodes.


Produced by the Japanese animation studio Tokyo Movie Shinsha, the series contains 155 episodes which aired between October 3, 1977 and October 6, 1980 on the Japanese television network, Nippon Television. Two feature films, The Mystery of Mamo and The Castle of Cagliostro, were released in theaters during the original broadcast run of the series.

The episodes, Wings of Death - Albatross and Farewell My Beloved Lupin, both directed by Hayao Miyazaki, were the first episodes of Red Jacket to appear in North America. They were dubbed by Streamline Pictures and distributed by Orion Home Video on VHS in 1993 and 1994, both under the title of "Lupin III: Tales of The Wolf". Both episodes were later bundled together on a single tape titled Lupin III's Greatest Capers. Twenty-six episodes of Geneon Entertainment's English adaptation of the anime aired on Adult Swim starting on Monday, January 13, 2003 (January 14, technically, since it premiered at midnight). Episodes 1–27 were broadcast on the channel, with the exception of episode 3. Currently, 15 Region 1 DVD volumes (a total of 79 episodes) have been released in the United States by Geneon Entertainment.

The series has the distinction of being the first anime series to be broadcast in stereo starting with episode 99 and intermittently to the end.
