Hojo’s Cat’s Eye manga centers on three sisters who run a cafe by day, and are notorious art thieves by night. The manga ran from 1981 to 1985, and inspired two television anime seasons by Tokyo Movie Shinsha. The first 36-episode season aired between 1983-1984, and the second 37-episode season aired from 1984-1985.
The franchise most recently inspired the Lupin III vs. Cat’s Eye cel-shaded CG crossover anime. The anime debuted on January 27 worldwide exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. The new project celebrates both the 50th anniversary of the Lupin III anime, and the 40th anniversary of Cat’s Eye.
