THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I thought the title of the special would have made this a great watch, but in the end it was a moderate Lupin experience.
The new female character was a lot of fun because she acted so much like Lupin, copying his "old man" and I enjoyed the thought that she was Lupin's daughter.
Still an average experience.

She seems to have Lupin's nose, at any rate. It would also explain why this famously lecherous character never tries to put the moves on her and his "teaching you a lesson" bit with his fake gun.

This wasn't tops, but it was better than the last few specials, so I kinda liked it. Decent cross-cutting action sequence in the finale, where even Fujiko has a henchman she has to beat up.

I liked this one. Lupin was stolen so he could be tricked with the Bull's Eye into guiding the villain to his collection, huh. A pity it doesn't exist, he is totally in it for the thrills. He left Goemon and Jigen behind to save Fujiko, but she was using him only to be also used in the end. lol Becky, the daughter of his old partner, was cool too. She wanted revenge for her mother, and I'm usually all for it, but it was nice of Lupin to not let her dirty her hands with that corrupt Interpol chief. He is going to pay dearly for his crimes either way.

And I like how Becky saw Jigen, Goemon and Fujiko as the true "Lupin Collection." They aren't objects, but they are definitely irreplaceable treasures. It was really cool of Jigen and Goemon to save Lupin while being still mad at him back at that casino, and even Fujiko was pretty cool and fought again like in the last one. This time there was even an enemy for her just like there were ones for Jigen and Goemon, and their fights were pretty cool too. A pity that village was damaged like that though, it was a beautiful place. But at least Lupin paid for the repairs, and no real treasure was lost. Fujiko really tried hard to protect those counterfeits though. xD Welp, nice one.

It's nice to hear "superhero" again; very underrated lupin theme.

Lupin hiding inside a puppet of himself was a new one unlike the good ol jump on the bed to get a piece of Fujiko. Her fight towards the end was hilarious btw.

Noice special with another female addition for a change of pace.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake and 957 brought the salvation
