Comment from the director Takeshi Koike
‘The movie will illustrate Lupin’s party’s early days faithfully reflecting Mr. Monkey Punch’s original work. They get together only when they share a mutual benefit, so they are just a group of rogues who have no real friendship between them or anything like that. Since the Lupin series is basically a story about bad people, I always aim to create a certain degree of suspenseful feeling. Please stay tuned for the untold episode where Goemon comes to join Lupin’s party.’
