Trivia

The producers of this Lupin OVA, in an attempt to cut costs, replaced the entire established voice cast (Yasuo Yamada, Eiko Matsuyama, Makio Inoue, Kiyoshi Kobayashi and Goro Naya) with also well-known but less expensive actors (including Toshio Furukawa, best known from "Urusei Yatsura" (1981)). Due to very poor communication, Yamada (the voice of Lupin III) was led to believe that Monkey Punch himself was responsible for the slight. Although Yamada et al returned to their roles with the next TV special, relations between the two (who over the course of the Lupin III production history had become good friends) would remain permanently strained until Yamada's death in 1995.

Delightful and Goemon-centric fun!
27 July 2004 | by (Washington DC, USA) – See all my reviews

If, like me, you think Lupin III's gang are just as engaging characters as the master thief himself, this is definitely one of the movies for you. Like 2002's "Episode Zero: First Contact", which tells the story of the gang's first meeting from the viewpoint of Jigen Daisuke, this story is focused on another member of the crew, the enigmatic samurai Ishikawa Goemon. About to marry, Goemon finds his bride and her dowry both abducted by the Fuma ninja clan, and must--with the help of wedding guests Lupin and Co.--battle through all obstacles to get her back. I'm biased here, as deadpan Goemon has long been my favorite member of Lupin's crew, but I honestly think there's enough Lupin hijinks here to keep his fans happy as well. Car chases galore and the dogged but humane determination of Inspector Zenigata keep the energy high throughout. If you like animated martial arts action, though, this is the primo Lupin movie for your collection, as Goemon is the star and fights several terrific sword battles. Extra-cute character designs and fluid animation by Tokyo Movie Shinsha add to its charm. A real treat.
