Synopsis

In this adventure, Lupin III tries to erase the files about him in the world police network. He finds out about the Ultravirus, a computer virus that controls all others and its location is only known by a little kid. Meanwhile, he steals the Statue of Liberty to look for a diamond the size of a football that is said to be hidden somewhere in it. Apparently, the diamond and the ultravirus are somehow related...

I'm writing this purely for the Lupin fans. If you haven't seen Lupin III read the reviews there instead.

Story: Although not as good as some of the other specials, leagues better than the next few specials (save Hemingway Papers). The plot is a solid heist. Exactly as the title says, steal the statue of Liberty (there is a diamond hidden in it).

The catch is that Lupin's moments are being predicted by a computer. Or at least, that was the intention, the plotline is dropped quickly. The rest of the special is computer related but it is more of Michael hacking than Lupin being predicted. read more

I went into this anime special as a loyal Lupin fan, watching it strictly out of loyalty and not expecting much at all. Boy was I surprised! For an animation made in 1989, it was such a delightful treat and easy to see why it sparked annual Lupin specials from then on!

ANIMATION: It's hard to believe this was made in 1989, technically part of the pink jacket series (thought Lupin wears red, as he does in most specials). The DVD/BD release's animation is better done than a lot of stuff released today. Many of the animation sequences seemed to have quite a bit of detail, read more

Lupin III: Bye Bye Liberty Crisis from 1989 is the first annual Lupin TV movie special, which they've continued doing every year since. Unfortunately, starting that great tradition is pretty much the only good thing about this particular Lupin tale.

It starts out with Lupin retired, slumming it, watching TV. Pretty different way to start a Lupin story, and it does lead to a fun reuniting with Lupin and his gunslinger sidekick Jigen. Their classic characters, and their great dynamic together are one of the bright spots of this story. These characters are classic no matter what.

Pretty much, this has one of the more nonsensical Lupin read more
