The less popular of the early TV specials
4 August 2006 | by emasterslakeSee all my reviews

Most people considered this one of the weakest of the Lupin the 3rd TV specials.

But it ain't too bad. It's directed by the same guy who did "GoodBye Lady Liberty" and "Hemmingway Papers".

In New York, Lupin steals an old fashion car which he'll use to compete in an old car race along with Jigen. The race is from Madrid to Paris. And the grand prize is Napoleon's Dictionary. Lupin wants that Dictionary because it contains the location of his family's precious heirloom.

But it won't be easy with an army of commandos hired to track him down and Zenigata like always trying to catch Lupin.

This one may not be the best one but it does have it's moments. Animation is the same as it was in the other old TV specials. It'll surly be available on DVD.
