Lupin III is incredibly popular in Italy and has a huge fanbase. In homage to this fanbase, much of this show is set majorly in Italy; the series was broadcast in Italy in August, two months before the official broadcast; and two episodes of the show are bonus episodes exclusively for the Italian audience.

This is Kazuhide Tomonaga's eight collaboration on a "Lupin III" anime, but the first one that he's directing; he had previously served as a storyboard artist and animator on his other seven Lupin works.

Previously features have shown Arsène Lupin III as either acting ruthless and cold-blooded (in tribute to his manga version) or cheeky and comical (a more toned-down and childish version). Kazuhide Tomonaga aimed to fuse these two differing sides of Lupin into one rounded character; this will be the first time this has happened with Lupin.

The opening credits pays homage to the introductions from previous "Lupin III" features:
  • the main cast are introduced within framed vignettes, as in the opening credits of Lupin the 3rd (1977)'s first season
  • the shot of Fujiko riding her bike comes from her introduction in Rupan sansei: Pilot Film (1969) and the closing credits of Lupin the 3rd (1971)
  • the shot of Fujiko in the shower comes from the first episode of Lupin the 3rd (1977)
  • the shot of Goemon Ishikawa in the bamboo forest was taken from his introduction in Lupin the 3rd (1971)
  • the shot of Lupin and Jigen in their Fiat is a homage to the title sequence of Lupin the 3rd: Castle of Cagliostro (1979), where they were on a journey to a new adventure.
