When Lupin heads to the kingdom of Zufu to pilfer its treasure, he incurs the wrath of its psychotic ruler General Headhunter, who places a dead-or-alive bounty on his head that many intend to collect.
Lupin and Jigen sneak into the country of East Doroa to steal its valuable treasure the Little Comet. The country has fortified its border after a singer named Queen Malta got assassinated in the neighboring country of West Doroa upon visit. Despite the civil war brewing between East and West Doroa, Lupin and Jigen still go ahead, but during the heist Jigen almost gets killed by a renowned sniper named Yael Okuzaki. It is said that Okuzaki prepares graves for his targets before executing his kills - and he has prepared a grave for Jigen.
Yael Okuzaki's appearance is based on Karl Lagerfeld, a German fashion designer who wears white suits and dark glasses. See more »

Identical suits, really?

"Lupin the IIIrd: Jigen Daisuke no Bohyo" is the next installment in the Lupin III franchise, based on the manga by Monkey Punch, which was first published in 1967. This film is the continuation of the 2012 "Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine" television anime series. The plot, like most Lupin III stories, seems simple. Lupin and Jigen plan to steal a diamond from the country of East Doroa, which has a conflict with the neighbouring country of West Doroa. However, what seemed like an easy job for the duo got complicated when they discovered they were the targets of a famous assassin. Directed by Takeshi Koike, the film has a beautiful animation style and fast pacing. It is aimed at a more mature audience and is quite entertaining. A definitive must-see for the fans of Lupin III.
