On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum are joined by video essayist Shannon Strucci, as well as Doctor and Foxy from the SSAA Network, to talk about Monkey Punch’s original Lupin the Third manga, specifically in the form of the first Greatest Heists collection brought over by Seven Seas! Join us as we discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the manga and whether this collection is good sampler for people who may be new to Lupin! We also discuss how this new release compares to the original Tokyopop run of the manga from back in the day and which entries on the anime side of the franchise are or aren’t worth checking out! Enjoy!
