The False Play - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: Jigen is checking out a magazine after Lupin accepted the mission from Brozzi. The article under the picture is a real article (including real names) that talks about a different kind of story (high level corruption and permits), even if at least it is about Mafia, which fits the episode's theme.

Factual error: The "evil looking guy" as Zenigata calls him, asks to his subordinates which team is the one he has an interest in. They say it's "Inter Roma", which is not the way the club is called at all (Inter is a different team from a different city). The anime is using real names all the time and the logo of the actual AS Roma team is right there on the stadium billboard, so it's not a made-up name for copyright reasons. (00:03:40)

The False Play - S1-E2

Other mistake: Lupin is playing chess at the computer, and he wins, as a full screen message shows. It's odd though, since the CPU has a much higher score than he does (by almost three times). Also, the interface contains a "Restor" button, with an obvious typo. (00:10:10)

The False Play - S1-E2

Factual error: Brozzi asks for Lupin's help saying that the final of the Coppa Italia elimination tournament is in 3 days. He just played a game winning the semifinals, though; there is not, and never has been, such a small interval between the final stages of the cup. (00:06:20)

The False Play - S1-E2

Factual error: The move Brozzi uses to score the final goal in his hat-trick is illegal; in soccer you can't climb on someone's shoulders to get an edge in a header, even if the person is a teammate. On a marginal note, the players he encounters in the box have names of real players at national level, but in completely different positions (Vieri and Toni were not defenders). (00:20:40)

The False Play - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The SUV with Leo and Mondini crashes into the wall; a rock and several handfuls of soil fall onto the roof. In the wider angle there are a couple of rocks and no dirt and terrain. (00:15:55)

The False Play - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Brozzi approaches Lupin in the bar, Jigen distances the glass from his lips before the first cut, but the glass is up and tilted towards his mouth in the next shot. (00:05:05)

Continuity mistake: Brozzi fills the glass past the point of overflowing, and sips from it. In the next cut, the glass is already half empty. That's some potent sucking. (00:06:00)

The False Play - S1-E2

Factual error: The Coppa Italia trophy raised by the winning team at the end of the episode looks nothing like the real one. (00:21:00)

The False Play - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Lupin shows the Mondini file to Jigen, the text is mere Lorem Ipsum filler. (00:10:40)
