Does anyone know if Mokey Punch (creator of Lupin III) is gonna be at comic con? I heard that he goes every year.

Last I heard, he passed away several years ago. Like 7 if I'm not mistaken. I could have him mixed up with the voice actor that played Lupin.

If Monkey Punch were still alive, I don't think he'd be healthy enough to make a trip out of the country. He'd have to be like 90 years old by now.

I've been a huge Lupin fan since 1983 when STERN Electronics released the CLIFF HANGER Laser Disc game. After I beat the game I had to find where the cartoon came from. You can say it's where my love for anime originated. Yeah, I'm old skool anime.

Then it was the voice actor. Like I said, I was uncertain. One of them was like 90 years old and passed away 7 years ago.

Lupin's voice actor was 63 when he died not 90. no one died at 90, all the other voice actors are still alive and well.

Oy, Rupan!

You made the point. Crazy Bunta was wrong in his info. No need to pick apart every bit that is wrong.

Synopsis:
Monkey Punch is alive. Hope the Comic Con attendees see him if he's there.
