Zenigata arrives on the ship "Machine Gun Kelly", a casino on the water owned by the mafia, because Lupin plans on stealing the casino's money. Lupin and his gang manages to break into the ship's vault but was unable to escape with the money due to Zenigata's shooting. However, there was another purpose the ship had, one that Lupin was aware of; to search for a sunken ship filled with gold. Lupin managed to steal this data while he was on the ship, however, now they have to contend with Zenigata, the mafia, and a secret organization whose base is under Alcatraz, as they attempt to uncover the secret behind the organization and the sunken treasure.

OP1: “Theme of Lupin III” by Yuji Ohno featuring Akiko
ED1: “What’s the Worry?” by Yuji Ohno Trio featuring Akiko


Watched this cause Imaishi did the OP. That part is fun, the rest is pretty rote. Definitely don’t make this the first Lupin you watch.


I liked this film a lot. Not the best Lupin but, a solid one.

    “When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom? No! It’s when… they are forgotten.” – Dr Hiruluk, One Piece
