Zenigata arrives on the ship "Machine Gun Kelly", a casino on the water owned by the mafia, because Lupin plans on stealing the casino's money. Lupin and his gang manages to break into the ship's vault but was unable to escape with the money due to Zenigata's shooting. However, there was another purpose the ship had, one that Lupin was aware of; to search for a sunken ship filled with gold. Lupin managed to steal this data while he was on the ship, however, now they have to contend with Zenigata, the mafia, and a secret organization whose base is under Alcatraz, as they attempt to uncover the secret behind the organization and the sunken treasure.

The story takes place in America and has connections to American history. One of of our most infamous events is being put into the plot in this one, the JFK assassination. The art and sound quality are stanard for when it was made. The characters are their usual selves, which is always fun! It had a good bit of comedy around some very serious situations, and watching Lupin outsmart people and work with Zenigata always makes me laugh!

The story was average, and not memorable. The reason Lupin was stealing the treasure was stupid, too. But, it was fun while I was watching it.

This one is great for people who are newish to the franchise. The (non-main) characters are less exaggerated and it even takes place in America.

STORY: You have to watch it really closely right off the bat, which is great. Not for plot purposes, but to catch the gang in disguise. I loved that about this special, that for the most part the gang has read more
