Unfortunate about the hands and feet.

That does seem to be said around here fairly often. Hands and feet must either be particularly hard to draw, or many artists must just not focus on them enough (having absolutely no artistic talent whatsoever myself, I certainly couldn't say which).
You don't have to any artistic talent to realise that poorly drawn hands and feet will effect any aesthetic judgement of artwork.

Oh. I'm not saying anything about that. I'm just talking about how the fact that it seems to happen so often that there's a problem with the hands and feet must have some sort of cause. It seems likely that it's either rather hard to get them right or that many artists just don't focus on them enough. Having no artistic talent, I can't say anything about how hard it is to draw hands and feet.

However, it's quite true that you can have no drawing ability yourself and yet still be able to recognize a poorly drawn picture.
Even some of the major artists have stumbled. Horiguchi Yukiko and Kuroda Kazuya have difficulties with drawing proper hands and feet.
there's nothing wrong with stylization and exaggeration. after all, that's what comic and manga illustration is all about. If you see that as a "problem," there are more serious "flaws" in the head, eyes, nose, mouth, hair, and all anatomical proportions.
the hands are large, but they are quite expressive and very very well drawn. it's a great pic whether you happen to appreciate the cartoonist's stylistic choices or not.
It is difficult to tell between deliberate exaggeration, and inexperience.

To me, it isn't aesthetically pleasing.

Well, the typical drawing style for Lupin III isn't one that's exactly designed to be aesthetically pleasing.
