The name of the Fuma Clan Boss was never revealed.
The first Lupin III anime to feature Zenigata's family.
Lupin provided Murasaki his red jacket from the second tv series to wear throughout the majority of the OAV.
Wasn't officially titled as Lupin in the US until 20 years later.
When the Fuma are exposed to the hallucinogens, Lupin's face reverts into what he look like in the Red Jacket series, Miyazaki directed episodes of the Red Jacket series, Pink Jacket series, & Secret of Mamo.
The idea of Zenigata beliveing Lupin died in a ship wreck was originally intended for the opening of Secret of Mamo.
According to the staff members, the most difficult part of this OAV was coming up with the right ending.
According to Yasuo Otsuka, Fujiko was originally going to be the one to get married in this OAV, but one of the script writers suggested having a different and younger woman besides Fujiko. Goemon ended up being the character to get married to this woman since the writer agreed Lupin can't be the choice of the groom if he's not marrying Fujiko.
The reason why this OAV takes place in Japan was because the staff members felt it would be easier to get inspirations for the locations by simply taking road trips to certain countrysides of Japan rather than spending so much time in trying to get photos and research of outside countries.
