Lupin III Alcatraz Connection has a real good premise that being Lupin and the Gang are going up against a secret criminal syndicate that is trying to take over the world in more ways than one. Lupin aslo reveals the truth behind JFK's assassination.

The story had promise but it gets pretty confusing and complex but does keep you interested for the most part.

The animation is really good I truly liked it. The characters looked aewsome especially Fujiko who looked more like her appearance in Lupin part II.

Sound was good nothing that stood out to me thought

All the Lupin Characters are back. Lupin, Jigen and Fujiko read more
