The Secret of Twilight Gemini is a nice Lupin special.

Lupin sets off for Morocco, looking for a legendary treasure. His only clue is an interesting jewel that an old man gave him. It's a nice different location for Lupin, with the desert and that hot exotic feel.

One interesting thing about this movie is that Jigen has a much smaller role than usual, generally being in a different place than Lupin. On one hand their classic dynamic together is missed, but it is a change of pace. Plus, this way, Lupin can focus on the ladies...

Fujiko rules in this. Throughout the entire feature she is seducing ...

No magic in this story, and it the gang is doing what they usually do without going out of the realm of their characters.

As much as I enjoyed this, I take off points for queer coding. There's a non-binary villain that gets called some derogatory terms. In all of Lupin not a lot of non-binary or non-heterosexual people appear, but it seems that when they do they have to be villainous. Taking off ...
