In this one, it's taken place in France. And there's a new thief in town who's doing some robberies and it's not Lupin. The thief is a girl who seems to be a copycat of Lupin. Zenigata got confused that it wasn't Lupin.
But when the real Lupin appears he pulls off the heist his way. But ended up getting kidnapped and ended up facing a mob. The leader gives him details on the "Bull's Eye" a sphere shape gem. It's a cursed gem, and those who try to steal it end up getting killed. Lupin is assigned to steal it for the mob boss, otherwise Fujiko won't live any longer.
Lupin accepts the assignment. So he, Jigen, and Goemon plan out to steal the gem. But Jigen and Goemon aren't doing for Fujiko. After Lupin steals it and left Jigen and Goemon behind to defend for themselves. They lost faith in him all because of Fujiko. What's more is the girl who's been copycatting Lupin also wants the gem for her own reasons.
It's all fun and humiliation for Lupin. I love this TV special so much. Probably because it has the right ingredients for a perfect Lupin anime to watch. It has the usual voice actors for the main characters. Great animation, character designs, story, and plenty of humor to chuckle about.
It's a must for those who are familiar with Lupin the 3rd. It's not in English yet, but it's very easy to find the fan sub of it on the internet.
