This was another one of those "okay" Lupin III TV specials as this one focuses on Lupin and his group trying to track down the whereabouts of his family's lost treasure while being chased by military members of the US and French government seeking it out for financial gain. The major characters, minus Fujiko, get their roles to fulfill in serious and comical points in the special, and there are points where I did snicker at some of Lupin's antics with Zenigata such as a rather elaborate disguise where the two switched places with one another. Otherwise, the plot to this mostly plays out as your typical Lupin III flick, minus the "Lupin movie gal" getting any major role to play, and has a surprise twist to what the treasure really is. It's a decent time killer for Lupin III fans, but far from being a memorable entry in the franchise.

Avoid 1 1 1 1 1 Midnighter [series:261#94]
Easily the worst anime I've ever seen, Lupin III caused me to not watch anime for a week afterwards. I simply hated this one. The art is inferior to "Inspector Gadgit", the "story" was cliched when it was even evident, the character designs made me want to either cry, or vomit, or both, and the dialogue was worse than 24 hours of nails on a blackboard. In short, this was a complete peice of shit, and all of you Lupin III fans out there have lost your credibility in my eyes (for what THAT'S worth)
Avoid this if you have any standards. Hell, Avoid this if you haven't any. Just avoid this like the plague.
