Behind every great man, there is a great woman.
A cult has become the target of Lupin III's latest heist but he might not be the only one after the treasures that their leader has kept hidden. It seems the alluring lover of the cult leader may just be a thief herself and more than capable to handle Lupin in the race for the treasure.
But in this chase to outsmart the other, this little game takes a twist for the unexpected when Lupin has set his sights beyond the cult's treasure to the female thief herself. Her name, Fujiko Mine, and Lupin may just be a little infatuated with this femme fatale beauty. What he doesn't know is that behind her wily charms lies a greater tragedy at hand.
This is the story of how Lupin III, the greatest thief of his generation, met his match in Fujiko Mine.
