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

A unique Lupin TV movie
27 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dulune, a dying old-time thief with life support has given Lupin a a small diamond, called the Twilight Gemini that's a key to opening a legendary treasure in Morrocco. Dulune asks Lupin a favor in seeking out the treasure for him before he departs from this world.

After all the years Lupin's had with Dulune, he couldn't refuse a request from an old friend when it involves treasure. So he heads towards Morocco only to be tracked by a group of Assassins and a tribe that want the treasure for themselves. And will kill off anyone who gets in the way. With the help of Lupin's friends and a group of rebels, this won't be as boring of an adventure as it turns out to be.

I didn't get why some people hate this one so much at first. And I kept hearing it was the worst Lupin TV movie of all time. But I can tell it's because it focuses on Lupin a lot and very little screen time on his comrades than the previous ones. Besides that, I think it was very good. It had allot of funny parts, action, and had more nudity in any Lupin anime.

This is a fun and enjoyable movie to watch. You can't get anything wrong with Lupin the 3rd.

Those who like Lupin the 3rd can check this one out. If you're not sure whether you'd like or not, just rent it and see.
