Storyline

Internationally famous thief, Arsene Lupin the Third, receives half of the large diamond known as Twilight from old crimeboss Doruune. Doruune tells him that if he finds the other half of the diamond in Morocco, they will lead him to treasure. Lupin and his gang (Daisuke Jigen, Goemon Ishikawa, and Fujiko Mine) head to Morocco, but get caught up in the middle of a conflict between the government and Gelt rebels. Both sides want Lupin, but no one wants him more than his 'old friend' Interpol Inspector Kouichi Zenigata, who has pursued him to Morocco... Written by Thanos6

The Secret of Twilight Gemini is a nice Lupin special.
4 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lupin sets off for Morocco, looking for a legendary treasure. His only clue is an interesting jewel that an old man gave him. It's a nice different location for Lupin, with the desert and that hot exotic feel.

One interesting thing about this movie is that Jigen has a much smaller role than usual, generally being in a different place than Lupin. On one hand their classic dynamic together is missed, but it is a change of pace. Plus, this way, Lupin can focus on the ladies...

Fujiko rules in this. Throughout the entire feature she is seducing Lupin, and us viewers. Then there's Lara, the damsel of this particular tale, and she's quite likable. This one has more nudity than any other Lupin anime, which is a fun distinction to have.

There's a very entertaining effeminate ninja guy who's the best villain in this, and naturally he has some great fighting with Goemon, as well as some fun scenes with Fujiko. Inspector Zenigata of course is also on a warpath here, in fine form.

Pretty much, this is a smooth ride with Lupin. The plot is average and there are some slow spots, but all in all this movie is a real pleasure. Enjoy.
