Lupin VS Conan Scores 19.5% Rating

Lupin and Conan score high with Japan.

I don't know if you remember this from back when I was doing the listurday feature, but most anime doesn't exactly score high percentages of ratings. The top shows tend to get in the 4-15% range, and those shows are long-running kids' fare like Doraemon, Chibi Maruko-chan, Pretty Cure, and more recently Shugo Chara!. I'm separating these from Sazae-san, who almost always takes the top spot around 20% and is kind of a special case.


While the Lupin vs Conan epic collaboration is also geared towards the family-friendly sort of audience, its 19.5% rating is pretty significant. (Last week's top-ranked show, for comparison, was a Chibi Maruko-chan special, which got 17%; the week prior had Sazae-san at 19.8% and Chibi Maruko-chan at 13%.


So, congratulations to Lupin and Conan! Now we just have to wait and see if someone (FUNimation, most likely, since they have Case Closed and eight of the Lupin movies and specials already) snatches it up for a quick US release. I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

Fun show, over all.  They once again made Lupin too nice, but then I was expecting it.  I was a bit surprised by the amount of Fujiko fanservice that made it into the special.  I was also surprised by how bad the animation was.  There were a lot of short cuts and off model character shots.  I was expecting better given that it's a TV special and not a regular episode. 

Dig Deeper into Lupin III

Created in 1967 by mangaka Monkey Punch, the wildly successful Lupin III features the "gentleman thief" Arsène Lupin III. Lupin III is the grandson of Arsène Lupin, the fictional lead character of Maurice Leblanc's French novel series, published in the early 20th century.
