About Lupin the 3rd Jigen's Gravestone DVD
By bringing her voice to West Doroa, the East Doroan singer Queen Malta hoped that she could heal the rift between the two countries in Lupin the 3rd: Jigen's Gravestone.
Instead, her murder on stage by an unknown assassin only served to increase the tension between the two countries. Already a country known for its incredibly low crime rate, East Doroa increases security in preparation for war--but security is nothing to the likes of super-genius thief Lupin III!
Still, when he and partner Jigen Daisuke swipe the Little Comet gemstone from an embassy in East Doroa, it's a little convenient that the police seem to know their every move. And worse, before they can even make their getaway, the pair find themselves under the crosshairs of a certain hitman--the same one that killed Queen Malta! Something's fishy, and in order to confirm his suspicions, Jigen visits the cemetery. There, he finds himself staring at his own gravestone. It's a calling card of the sniper, Yael Okuzaki... and no one targeted by him has ever escaped the grave! But why is he only after Jigen, and not Lupin? And things only get more complicated with Fujiko around!

This is NOT Castle of Caligostro, KEEP CHILDREN AWAY
by M.O.T.A. -
Lupin the Third once started out as a gag manga. If you consider theft, sex, and murder a gag (literally the manga had several doses of adult themes). This film comprised of two 25 minute episodes, is stylishly animated in the same fashion as 'The Woman Called Fujiko Mine'. It's also one of the more grittier interpretations I have seen since the 1st TV series in the 70's. The atmosphere halfway in is disturbingly eerie as a club of high class creeps watch a female oil wrestling with a mechanized human with giant drill genitalia while a piano plays a single note over and over. It's not for everyone, but watch it for yourself and make that decision.
