Comment:
Lupin III began as a parody of a novel series by French author Maurice LeBlanc, creator of the original Arsène Lupin. This led to legal problems, as Monkey Punch did not seek permission to use the name Lupin from the estate of LeBlanc. The estate decided not to seek legal action against Monkey Punch, on the condition that the use of Lupin was to remain in Japan.
To compensate for this legal issue, anime licensors released various Lupin III titles under different names. Streamline Pictures' releases had Lupin renamed "Wolf." AnimEigo released two films as Rupan III. In France, Lupin was known as "Edgard de la Cambriole."
In the early 1990s, the Lupin name went into public domain, thus allowing the use of the name on the anime franchise outside Japan.
