My Introduction to Lupin The 3rd.

I am annoyed that Netflix only has the Streamline Dub and not the Manga Dub, especially since the Voice Direction/ Scripting feels Particularly Dated for Me and this is one of Bob Bergen's Weaker Performances as Lupin IMO (David Hayter's Lupin Deserves more Love in my Eyes).

Thanks for leaving this comment, otherwise I wouldn't have known it was on Netflix!

David Povall was really great as Zenigata though.

@GreenGoblin75 Povall's Zenigata sounds too Suave and Refined in the role for my Liking. I found Kevin Seymour's Gruff and Boisterous Gruff and Boisterous rendition to be more Entertaining.

I'm a bit torn between dubs.

I greatly prefer the vocal characterizations of the Streamline dub (save for Goemon) but prefer the script and acting for the Manga dub. Either way, they both have their positives.

I find it funny how Kirk Thornton voiced the general in the original Streamline dub but got promoted to the big bad himself in Manga dub. To be honest I do prefer McConnohie since he was more age appropriate (at the time it was first released).

I'm neutral about the Streamline dub; it's not bad, but it's not anything outstanding either.

I do have issues with the Animaze dub for cranking up the profanity too much, but overall I quite enjoyed it.

It is quite interesting to know Hayao Miyazaki had worked on a Lupin III film. The Manga dub surprised me more that I thought. I enjoyed hearing the likes of David Hayter (Though I never imagined him voicing Lupin), Dorothy Fahn and Kirk Thornton in the newer dub.

@Fulgore2005 Yeah, I really enjoyed this movie as well. This was actually Miyazaki's first, long before he made Studio Ghibli. There's something about this film that is so old-fashioned and entertaining that I find so darn priceless. Amusingly, I didn't know that Solid Snake did Lupin at first. But hearing the differences between the two roles is rather amusing. The only dub I heard in its entirety was the newer dub, which I liked a lot except for the overdone profanity, which I felt was too unnecessary for a lighthearted film. The Streamline dub I only heard in clips but it didn't sound too bad at all.

@JTurner That's exactly how I felt about the Manga dub. A bit too much profanity, but a great voice cast. Doughary Grant made an excellent Zenigata, Hayter did a great job as the ore serious Lupin, and Bridget Hoffman did a wonderful job of voicing Clarisse d'Cagliostro. (Which, IMO, was one of my favourite damsels-in-distress.)

@JTurner In the newest DVD/Blu-ray release of the film, they apparently created a "family friendly" version of the newer dub where they replaced a lot of the profanity. I haven't heard this for myself, so I'm not sure if the replaced words sound fake, but I thought you might be interested to know anyway.

@PsychicVoiceSpy I actually DO own the newer version in question, and I did sample it. To be honest, I'm kinda fifty-fifty. Sometimes the replacement lines work, other times they don't. It's not the fault of anyone involved, though; some of the actors who voiced these characters have long passed (R.I.P. John Snyder). Perhaps because of my familiarity with the Manga version over the years, I've learned to tune out the profanity and just enjoy it. While I applaud the attempt to wash out the profanity, it DOES have its pitfalls.

I also sampled parts of Streamline's previous dub. To be honest, I'm neutral about it. There are some performances that I thought turned out great, but it doesn't strike me as better or worse than the Animaze dub, only different. It's a LOT more talkier than the Animaze one, though. Which I'm kinda neutral about, because honestly, it doesn't bother me either way. I dunno, I have to see more of it to decide, but so far I'm more partial toward the Manga dub since that's the first time I saw this movie.

@JTurner John Snyder is still alive.
said at 11:49 PM on Thu Feb 25 2016
@Redeye64 He is? I didn't know that. I wonder why they weren't able to bring him back to replace Jigen's lines for the dub edit?
said at 5:38 PM on Fri Mar 25 2016
@JTurner You're probably thinking of Dougary Grant (Zenigata from Manga Entertainment's dub) who did pass away a couple years back. I'll never forget his Tessai of Ninja Scroll...
said at 6:19 PM on Fri Mar 25 2016
@Redeye64 Oh I already know about Grant/Seymour (R.I.P.), I was just surprised that John Snyder was still alive. For some reason I thought he had passed on too. Guess I was mistaken, heh. My bad. :(
