About Lupin the 3rd The Castle of Cagliostro DVD
In Lupin the 3rd: The Castle of Cagliostro, in the twilight of his career, master thief Lupin the Third's latest and greatest caper has hit a snag. What should've been bags of cash from a national casino turns out to be expert counterfeits! Together with his partner-in-crime Jigen, Lupin heads to the remote European nation of Cagliostro to exact revenge.
Not everything goes as planned; the two encounter Clarisse, a royal damsel in distress being forced to marry the sinister Count Cagliostro against her will. Saving her won't be easy, however, as Lupin and Jigen - together with Lupin's unpredictable ex-girlfriend Fujiko and the swordsman Goemon - must fight their way through a trap-filled castle, a deadly dungeon, and an army of professional assassins! Can Lupin rescue the girl, evade the cuffs of his long-time nemesis Inspector Zenigata, and uncover the secret treasures of The Castle of Cagliostro?

Ratings & Reviews
An absolute winner without question
The best of the Lupin movies I have seen, at least the Manga dub anyway. The Castle Of Cagliostro is one of those movies that you can watch again and again and it will not get tiresome. Some people say that John Snyder's aka Ivan Buckley voice makes Jigen sound old, but I think that deep gravely rough voice is spot on for Jigen. Anyone can enjoy this movie, I knew nothing about Lupin the 3rd before watching this movie and became a fan immediately, and I'm not a fan of Japanese animation, but this movie is an absolute winner without question. It deserves 6 stars, but I can't give but 5.
