Trivia

This TV special was something of a gamble. The ratings for the Lupin TV specials were steadily declining so the producers decided to shift the tone from the light hearted romps of the previous films to something akin to the violent action films of the early 90's. The gamble paid off and the success of this film led to several subsequent Lupin TV specials. See more »

Goofs

At the begin of the movie you can clearly read the word "Polizia" on the cop's cars, but instead the policemen wear the carabinieri uniform. See more »

A whole new look for Lupin the 3rd.
11 July 2005 | by emasterslakeSee all my reviews

After signaling a burglar alarm, Lupin and Jigen had to avoid the swarm of police cars. They hid themselves at an old building where they discovered that Zenigata was accompanied by the police who were ordered to let the Inspector handle it alone. Lupin & Jigen suspect that it was a trap. But it was no trap as Zenigata went towards them to announced that the ICPO has taken him off the "Lupin Case". In other words arresting Lupin is no longer his assignment. More sad and sympathetic than Zenigata was before. Lupin decides to help him out. As it be boring in not having "Pops" chasing him around.

Later both Jigen and Lupin learned that Zenigata's new assignment is shutting down an arms merchant/war smuggling organization called "Shot Shell" which is well known in the Black Market. Which is what Lupin decided to do, by negotiating with this secret organization. Not only that but the replacement for the "Lupin Case" is an ex-mercenary named Keith Hayden, who's orders are to rub out Lupin and his comrades. Will Lupin successfully reprise Zenigata's role for Interpol, and will he have a winning chance in defeating Keith? I consider this Lupin TV movie to be higher level than the first 4. As the character designs, and animation style differ from the previous ones. Especially when Fujiko looks more sexy than she did in the earlier TV movies.

Voyage to Danger is a highly recommended anime for those who appreciate Lupin the 3rd. It has Action, explosions, humor, weapons, bomb shells, Submarines, and some unexpected parts too.

My rating is 8/10 just cause it's one my personal Lupin favorites.
