About Lupin the 3rd Blood Seal of the Eternal Mermaid Blu-ray

Lupin the 3rd: Blood Seal of the Eternal Mermaid is an anime film directed by Teiichi Takiguchi.

An ancient seal of blood guards an immortal secret.

An Aquamarine gemstone, the Mermaid's Scale, appears in a secret, underground auction. The queen of the underworld (nicknamed the "Bearslayer") coerces the professional jewel-lifter Lupin into stealing the rock for her. Lupin swipes the stone, and quickly discovers not only that it's a forgery, but that the real Mermaid's Scale is part of an unsolved riddle that leads to transcending mortality! Soon, the "Bearslayer" is found murdered in cold blood! Her seemingly immortal young aide, Misa, is kidnapped by the arms dealer Himuro. The race is on for Lupin and his gang to locate the secret to eternal life... before it's used to send the Earth into a state of endless war!

Blood Seal of the Eternal Mermaid

by

An enjoyable TV Special but I have some gripes. The movie has two young sisters involved with the story and has a lighthearted, kid-friendly tone but there are a few moments of violence, murder, and gore that feel a bit jarring. I know the Lupin III series as a whole isn’t necessarily for kids but The Blood Seal of the Eternal Mermaid seems like it wants to fall on the “Castle of Cagliostro” side of things but has moments of violence that would seem suited towards the more hard-boiled 90’s TV Specials or the recent Lupin IIIRD movies.

The character designs and the animation look incredible. I’m sure a lot of that has a lot to do with the fact this is the first native 1080p Full HD special. Discotek’s blu-ray quality is without flaws and the packaging is good.

The new english dub by the Geneon crew is a welcome addition. I always love hearing them reprise these roles and would like more english dubs for TV specials that don’t have them.

Lupin Takes On.. An Apprentice?!

by -

This particular adventure finds Lupin III in a race for possession of a highly sought after gem known as the Mermaid's Scale which legends link to the secret of immortality. Along the way he is pursued not only by Inspector Zenigata (as always) but also by a young girl named Maki who is determined to have Lupin take her on as an apprentice thief - an idea that Lupin is none too fond of.

This special is notable for being the first of the series produced in high definition (and beautifully so) and features all of the trademark elements the series is known for. It is a bit more graphically violent than others (ex. impalements accompanied by spurts of blood) so some discretion may be required for certain viewers.

Features both Japanese and English audio and the box art is a a reversible mini poster. There's also a fun bonus feature that contains interviews with the Japanese voice cast as they recount their experiences and reflect on the legacy of the Lupin series as a whole.
