This time Lupin is after 500 tons of gold bullion that used to belong to the House of Romanov, the last rulers of the Russian Empire. His only clue is a code in an old book that a cipher machine has broken down to the words "Bank of Liberty." As always, whenever Lupin's involved, the situation gets complicated. This adventure takes him through the USA and Russia, with loads of action and classic Lupin-style escapades along the way.

The villain is a flashy one in this, Rasputin. A crazy monk with a gimmick where he pokes his finger into various orifices on people's faces, like their mouth or nose. He's a read more

From Russia With Love deserves special recognition for being quite possibly the most bizarre and ridiculous Lupin III TV special ever animated.

It's difficult to explain in just a few words how much weird stuff happens in this movie that feels like it belongs in some offbeat comedy anime like Excel Saga or Pani Poni Dash instead of the Lupin adventure they're actually showing up in. Lupin yanks off a woman's top in the opening scene for no reason. Mobsters play with dolls and paint their toenails for no reason. Fujiko tells a bunch of big rig truck drivers that the loves smelly unwashed men for read more
