Seven Days Rhapsody is a good time with the Lupin gang.

Lupin wants a giant diamond, and he helps out a teenage girl along the way. Plot isn't what makes Lupin great though, it's the entertaining dynamic between the classic characters.

Lupin and Jigen have a lot of fun "best friends" comedy in the beginning, including a hilarious scene where they play with puppets. This is contrasted by them then taking opposing missions, and having a conflict of interest. Lupin and Jigen always have a great dynamic, and there are some nice twists to it in this one.

Lupin III: Seven Days Rhapsody

A rich girl hires Lupin to help her steal a diamond from her father.
Fujiko hires Goemon to help her steal this diamond.
A friend from Jigen’s past hires him to help steal this diamond. (hmm I wonder if Jigen’s friend is actually evil and is going to betray him in the end 🤔…)
But this mcguffin is no ordinary diamond...
Also Zenigata is chasing Lupin from country to country. Keeps getting close but always missing by that much 🤏

Its an entertaining fun time.
The gang is split up at the start but come together in the end to give the bad guys their kamuffins.
