Storyline

Lupin has his eye set on a set of unique photographic plates, which hold the key to an ancient treasure dating back to the Edo period. These plates are in the keeping of Michael Suzuki, a multi-millionaire who is about to open a water park in Tokyo. Unfortunately, two of his partners aren't in good condition at the moment: marksman Daisuke Jigen is suffering from a toothache that impedes his aim, and swordsman Goemon Ishikawa has had his prized sword stolen from him... and in Suzuki's collection! Meanwhile, Inspector Zenigata must reluctantly deal with Maria, a journalist assigned to report on the Lupin case but who would much rather report on Suzuki. However, she holds a dark secret to Suzuki's past that he is prepared to hide at any cost. And just what is the secret hidden within the plates? Written by Q. Leo Rahman

One of my favorite Lupin TV movies.
7 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently watched this on DVD.

And it was flipping awesome! Every minute of this Lupin movie was action packed! The animation is great, the story is great, and even the additional characters are great too.

This is also the first time they have Inspector Zenigata playing a bigger role.

It's all taken place in Tokyo and has a lot to do with this new Aquapolis resort and a young woman named Maria who has a connection with the owner of Aquapolis, Micheal Susuki.

Has all the good stuff you'd expect from a good Lupin TV movie.

i highly recommend this to all the Die-Hard Lupin Fans.

I give this a 8/10.
