Two jewels are the key to the ancient treasure of Yaobikuni. But legend has it that the only person who can find the treasure is one who can walk the path of death.

Alright, it’s my first review here (Yay!), so bear with me.

Since 1989, the creation, once a year, of a Lupin III TV Special has been kind of a tradition. Some of these specials were memorable, others were just average and some of them were downright terrible. In which category does this one fall?

The art and sound quality are better than what would expect from when it was made. I would recommend this for people new to Lupin and new anime, because it does a lot of showing the character's personalities with Fujiko being as useful as she usual is, and it's ...
