According to Dragon Ball Z.com: "FUNimation has acquired yet another smash hit anime called Lupin III. Lupin III is a classic Japanese series and is one of the most popular series of all time in Japan. In fact a popular Japanese magazine recently performed a major poll to determine the "Best 100 Anime" ever made. Lupin III came in second place! FUNimation is proud to have been chosen to bring this exemplary series into the English speaking world. Gen Fukunaga, President of FUNimation, had this to say about the series, "With movies produced since the 1970's and new movies (over 90 minutes each) being created every year for the last 13 years, we are in awe of the longevity of this terrific brand.""
