A young lady named Vivian is desperate for fame and fortune - so desperate that she is willing to become the latest conquest of Lupin III (in terms of being robbed only, of course!). However, Lupin dazzles her so much that when a paper interviews her about him, she stutters and makes mistakes. As a result, the paper prints that the grandmaster of thieves Arsène Lupin III stole a cat that eats pencil shavings, and now an outraged Lupin must now protect his reputation by locating such an animal and stealing it. Joining the chase is the brothers Butcher and Bucky, who wish to beat the great Lupin by getting to that animal first... if even such an animal exists. Written by Tenchi
