On one wiry night, Lupin encounter a mysterious man named Mamo Kyosuke. He claims to be be from the 29th Century. He tells Lupin that on March 31, 2874; Lupin the 13th destroy the Mamo Clan. And for that Mamo gives Lupin 4 days to live. Because on the 4th day Lupin will vanish from the face of the earth. Lupin finds this to be baloney, so he went to pull a heist with Jigen and managed to steal a golden statue, but then it vanished from their position. Mamo reappears and tells Lupin that he went back in time and prevented the statue from ever been modeled. It was a warning in what will become of Lupin, as Mamo can simply go back in time and kill off any of Lupin's ancestors. This really made Lupin freak out. The question is, who is Mamo really? And how can Lupin defeat him before the 4th day comes? Written by J LeGault
