Crossover DVD Cover: Lupin III vs. Detective Conan

Arsène Lupin III and amateur sleuth Shinichi Kudo, aka Conan Edogawa, become involved in an investigation into the death of Queen Sakura and Prince Gill of the kingdom of Vesparand. Conan’s best friend and would-be love interest, Ran Mori, is a dead ringer for Princess Mira. Shinichi (or Jimmy in the English dubbed version) Kudo, aka Conan Edogawa, is from Gosho Aoyama’s manga Detective Conan (aka Case Closed) and its anime adaptation. Philip José Farmer identified Lupin III’s grandfather, Arsène Lupin, as a Wold Newton Family member, and therefore this crossover brings Conan Edogawa into the CU. Lupin and Conan encounter each other again in the film Lupin III vs. Detective Conan: The Movie.

  1. I've never seen this. I remember reading a review of that was very negative, but whoever wrote this was big Lupin fan who hated Detective Conan. So his opinion is suspect. (I am personally a much bigger Lupin fan than Detective Conan, but he had a real hate going on it.)
