After a diamond heist in Brazil, Lupin hides the gem in a doll and boards a plane headed out of the country. While on board, the doll is stolen by a little girl named Julia, whose nanny is none other than Fujiko Mine. Before Lupin can get the doll back, the plane is hijacked and the girl is kidnapped. The kidnappers are after the same thing that Fujiko is after - a book of Nostradamus prophecies hidden in Julia's father's tower. Lupin and the gang join forces to save the girl, get the diamond back, and discover the secrets surrounding the strange book.

There isn't much to differentiate this movie from the rest of the series in terms of originallity. However, this particular movie is the only one I know of where the main female of the movie is a kid. This forces Lupin to be a gentleman around her since he can't act his usual lecherous self in front of a little girl. All in all, the art is good, the storyline decent, and the characters work well together. A worthy movie in a long line of Lupin the 3rd titles.

Nonetheless, a major strength is the lack of an overarching plot; excluding the trilogy of movies related to the Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna series, one can watch in any order they desire.

On to the review!

Rivaling the quality of Cagliostro, this movie had nothing to envy. Its strongest ...

If you'd ask me whether or not I'd recommend this movie, I'd say "No". And if you ask me why:

A short answer would be: IT'S BORING. Go watch Cagliostro no Shiro or Lupin III The First. They're much, much better Lupin movies.

A long answer would be: There's nothing unique in this film. It looks like a failed attempt to market the series to a 90s western audience.

If you watched your share of Lupin, you might see that it's somewhat simillar in structure to Hergé's Tin Tin: A big mystery is placed on our protagonists' lap, which they slowly uncover it while outwitting villanous groups trying ...
