Lupin III

The Sharpshooter - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Eric's men completely trash the clinic's lobby; in particular they tear down the "Accettazione" sign. However when they finally leave, the place is still completely messy but the sign can be seen in the background when the snitch is spared his life and gets up. (00:08:20 - 00:09:45)

2% Chance of Survival - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Despite not having taken a sip from the champagne flute yet, the level in the glass when Lupin says "To my very own Marie Antoinette" is lower than the beginning (when he said "a cigarette saved my life"). (00:20:00)

The Left Hand of the Magician - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Luca is looking at Fujiko in the tiger cage for his quasi-stepbrother's act, he is gripping the chain-link fence. The fence is drawn in a strange way, seemingly missing several sections, but besides this animation oddity, it is clear that his right hand is in one shot next to large vertical metal bar (partially covered by it even) but in a different position in the side view that follows.

Until Sunset, the Full Moon - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: The size of the brand on Elena's arm changes throughout the episode. When it's first noticeable and when later Zenigata points it out it is the size of an average band-aid, but in the close-up following the flashback it is way bigger, even factoring in the angle. (00:12:20 - 00:14:00)

2% Chance of Survival - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Lupin expresses his last wish for a smoke, and as Nyx holds him at gunpoint asking if he has any trick concealed in the cigarette, pay attention to the left wall of the room and how part of the plaster is ruined and exposes the bricks underneath. In particular there's a smaller patch of bricks between the upturned table and the back wall. When later Nyx walks away, there is no such thing and that part of the wall has a much larger part where the plaster has been stripped off. (00:17:00 - 00:18:15)

Until Sunset, the Full Moon - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: At home at the beginning of the episode, Elena puts out a cigarette. She is sitting on the left part of the couch, pretty close to the armrest. When Lupin appears looming by the balcony door, she is sitting in the middle part of the sofa, the line between two pillows has even been drawn. (00:00:50)

2% Chance of Survival - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When we first see Jigen on the cross, his shirt has one button left. They toss the bucket of water on him, and the shirt is now totally open. Later in the episode, when Lupin frees him, it's the other way around; the shot from the archway with the agent looking for Lupin shows Jigen in the background with the shirt open, but it's buttoned when his friend unlocks the shackle.

The Sharpshooter - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Zenigata walks away from the inspector, the Italian colleague is standing by the bench, which appears mangled by projectiles for roughly half its length, while it was damaged for a more extensive part before. (00:19:30)

Until Sunset, the Full Moon - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: The detective at the beginning of the episode shouts "Elena!" and grabs the second bar to the right of the decorated part of the gate. When he lets go, you can tell from behind that he is letting go of the closest bar. (00:00:30)

Until Sunset, the Full Moon - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: During the announcement that she is running for office, from Zenigata's point of view Elena is very far away, quite literally a dot in the horizon as if she were on the other end of a large city square, but in the reverse shot from her position, Zenigata is just the other side of a relatively narrow street. (00:20:50)

The Marriage of Lupin III - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Right after his old pals left Lupin alone at the wedding reception, Rebecca jumps at him from behind. She places both hands on his shoulders, but in the next shot she has just her left hand on his matching shoulder. (00:05:35)

The Sharpshooter - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Nino collapses (camera positioned behind Jigen's head) you can see a blood streak on his right arm as well as the left arm. In the rest of the scene he has blood only on the left arm. Moreover, when Jigen picks him up the puddle of blood on the floor has a different shape compared to what we see when he leaves doctor Livia to her medical duties. (00:12:20)

The Left Hand of the Magician - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In the buff acrobat's flashback/narration of Fujiko's seductive ways, she is pulling Luca in with the towel, but Luka is facing away from her in the first shot and towards her in the second. (00:05:40)

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 Marriage of Lupin III - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the bag with the crown is back in the hands of the 9 heads of the country, the strings are missing when the elder says "Sir Lionello, please take the royal crown back." (00:15:00)

The Marriage of Lupin III - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Lupin puts the wedding ring on Rebecca's finger. Right at that moment Zenigata barges in, and a very amused Rebecca begins cheering and jumping excited...with her gloves on. (00:02:30)

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)

Sammo Premium member

The False Play - S1-E2

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 Marriage of Lupin III - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the flashback of their first encounter, Rebecca holds the challenging note by Lupin differently between shots. (00:04:50)

The Left Hand of the Magician - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Fujiko opens the suitcase on her motorbike with the left arm, right arm, left arm, depending on the camera angle. (00:19:45)

Until Sunset, the Full Moon - S1-E7

Character mistake: Zenigata uncovers Elena's arm saying he noticed the mark when she was fighting "those guys previously." Which guys? Her assailant was just one dude. (00:13:40)
