|Directed by Gizaburo Sugii, the talented director behind both the Street Fighter II movie and Night on the Galactic Railroad, and featuring memorable theme songs by fan favorite voice actress and singer Aya Hisakawa, Secret of the Twilight Gemini is a prime example of why Lupin III has remained one of Japan's favorite anime characters for 30 years!
Legend has it that the Twilight diamond is the key to a Moroccan treasure of immeasurable value. So when the international thief Lupin is given the Twilight in an act of faith, it's off to Morroco!
But what started out as a simple in and out jobs turns into chaos the moment Lupin steps off the train! Fighting factions, masked assassins, secret underground sects, a whip-yielding psychopath, corrupt cops, and the always determined Inspector Zenigata... they're all after Lupin. And they won't stop until he's caught or killed.
Not so much to tell, this film is not directed by Miayzaki, but still very pleasant to watch. Action,fun and misunderstandings. I think I shall change my mind about Lupin, I don't think I feel those films are so old, as I first thought.
