Following that reverse, Miyazaki and Takahata were invited by Yasuo Ōtsuka to adapt and direct Monkey Punch ‘s Lupin the Third Part I ( 1971 ). Unfortuntely, the series suffered from a depleted audience viewership. Despite the broadcast ending after half a year, it served as the blueprint for subsequent spinoffs. Utilizing their experience from the fail Pippi project, Miyazaki, Takahata, Ōtsuka and Kotabe produced Panda! Go Panda and its sequel ( 1972, 1973 ). Miyazaki was in bang of screenplay, scene fructify, art, original pull back, etc. Miyazaki then transferred to Zuiyo Eizo ( late Nippon Animation ) with Takahata and Kotabe, where they produced Heidi, Girl of the Alps in 1974.
