A great Lupin III special
15 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like The Fuma Consipracy (I haven't seen that one), this special centers more around Lupin's samurai partner, Goemon. A Chinese mob boss challenges Lupin III and co. to retrieve a dragon figurine from the bottom of the ocean inside the Titanic. The fact that Arsene Lupin is enough of incentive for Lupin to go get it, but without the mob boss' backing. His adversaries include Chin Chin Chou (the mob boss), the ever persistent Inspector Zenigata, and even Goemon and his long lost childhood friend. There is plenty of action and humor which you come to expect from the franchise. Now for the dubbing: Sonny Strait does a good job as Lupin, despite the fact that it's pronounced "Loo-pin" (The appropriate pronunciation, "Lu-pahn", couldn't be used because of issues with Maurice Leblanc). Christopher Sabat supplies his typical gruff "Piccolo" voice as Jigen, perhaps the closest one to resemble the TMS dubbers. Everybody else does a good job. All in all, definitely a worthwhile outing from Lupin the 3rd.
