Story

Story

An action-adventure movie filled with laughter and tears! A new legend of Lupin starts here

The story opens with a scene at an auction where Lupin and his gang are about to steal a phantom gem called the "Mermaid Scale." As they chase after the legend associated with the "Mermaid Scale," they come to an isolated island in the Sea of Japan where an immortal woman named Yaobikuni is confined. They soon find out that a ruthless gangster Himuro is also after Yaobikuni's treasure. Eventually they are joined by two girls -Maki, who aspires to be Lupin's disciple, and Misa, who Maki considers to be her sister and who possesses mysterious powers. The story, already entangled with clashing motives, adds onto it a memory of Lupin the First and then runs nonstop to a climactic conclusion.
The story is packed with action - starting with Lupin and his gang's dramatic escape from an auction, a one-on-one sword fight between Goemon and Kageura, a skilled hit-man who uses two swords, until it ends with a fierce fight-to-the-death combat against Himuro on an isolated island in the Sea of Japan. The always alluring and betraying Fujiko as well as the intensely silly Zenigata will not let you down. You might even draw a tear or two when Lupin and Zenigata show a sign of true connection that they have between them. The qualities of what makes the show Lupin, with action, tears and laughter are all packed into this episode for your enjoyment.
Why Lupin continues his thievery ways, is a question that Lupin asks himself, and the answer should be the same as why we continue to love and watch "Lupin the Third." Let's watch Lupin closely as he begins on his journey into what will be his new legend.
