The Man They Called a Magician - S1-E2

Plot hole: Lupin was knocked out by Pycal when he shot him with a gun at point-blank. On the other hand, the 'shield' he used was strong enough to not even budge when Jigen's gun and several machine-gun shots would hit, and sustained the impact of an anti-tank rocket, so the dampening powers of the chemical are pretty inconsistent. It's also completely impossible that it works as shown, unless it also coats the mouth, the nostrils, the eyes.

Is Lupin Burning... ?! - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Lupin catches red-handed a guy who wants to mess with his racing car. The item he tries to use to pour something in the tank has some letters in the first shot, no initials in the next. (00:01:35)

Farewell My Beloved Witch - S1-E3

Other mistake: The professor gets killed by Stern's machine gun, but he was inside the plane and the plane suffers not a single bit of damage. A stray bullet can go anywhere, but at least one of the other bullets should have hit the fuselage.

Farewell My Beloved Witch - S1-E3

Plot hole: Lupin was captured by chance, and he did not plan for that, nor he seemed to have previous knowledge of Stern's appearance, but he escapes regardless using a Mission Impossible-like perfect mask of him. He also somehow kept his own blazer, tie and shoes underneath the uniform and boots he stole and wore. (00:16:00)

Farewell My Beloved Witch - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Lupin is sitting in the prison cell listening to Stern's proposal, he never moves but his butt still rests on a different spot almost each time - look at the tiles, and how sometimes he's precisely within a single one, other times he's between two. (00:15:00)

Farewell My Beloved Witch - S1-E3

Other mistake: In the first part of the episode, the Third Sun is purple when in the hand of the characters in close-up, and pink in the field. Different shades of pink, some quite dark, but never the same shade as the close-ups or even close.

Farewell My Beloved Witch - S1-E3

Audio problem: Lupin finds Linda in the flowerbed and eventually asks her what the flower known as 'Third sun' is. Her mouth starts moving, but the audio of the girl's answer comes with a significant delay. (00:08:20)

The Man They Called a Magician - S1-E2

Other mistake: Despite falling unconscious at the bottom of the sea in his car and being rescued by Jigen, with Pycal within range since he got out of the car at the last moment, somehow Lupin gets to Pycal's home before he does, setting up a bunch of tricks in advance too.
