Lupin III

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.

The Marriage of Lupin III - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When the camera pans through some of the gossip columns involving the socialite bride of Lupin, the text is entirely in Latin (probably Lorem Ipsum filler). Obviously no Italian gossip magazine, or any mainstream magazine, is written in Latin. (00:04:20)

2% Chance of Survival - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: The fireworks explosions lack any depth and perspective, and are superimposed in a way that puts them completely out of place, in particular in the panning shot of the hotel veranda after the crown prince hightails. (00:17:50)

Season 1 generally

Factual error: Every episode in the first half of this series begins with the same phrase and the same map of the Italian peninsula. Said map though misspells, in a very Japanese way, the north-eastern city of Trento, wrongly appearing as Torento. (00:00:01)
