Lupin is such a beloved character. How did it feel taking on the project?
Takashi Yamazaki: I’ve been watching Lupin since I was a child, and I’ve adored him as a character so I was truly cheerful, yet in addition in light of the fact that the brand has been finished by numerous incredible chefs and makers, similar to The Castle of Cagliostro, that I felt a great deal of pressing factor; particularly on the grounds that I was managing moving into [a] new medium, which is [Lupin’s] first CG 3D liveliness, so I was somewhat stressed and energized. However, I would not like to lament not doing it; rather, I needed to do it and think twice about it instead of not take it!
As a child, I lived in the open country yet I stayed with my family members in Tokyo – when I was in grade school – and that was the point at which I initially saw Lupin on TV, and unexpectedly they had Fujiko [Mine] in the shower, and I was truly astonished! I’m similar to, ‘goodness, in Tokyo they have these tasteless shows, and what an unnerving spot Tokyo is.’ So that was the point at which I initially met Lupin. Yet, [though] I was watching the TV arrangement as a child, I think when it hit me large was the point at which I saw Cagliostro. It truly affected me in light of the fact that [while] I was watching [Lupin III] nonchalantly on TV, I didn’t watch it in the theaters and I didn’t actually appreciate it from the start.
