After years of failure, Zenigata has announce to Lupin that the ICPO has permanently pulled off him off of the Lupin case. His new orders are to take down an international organization called Shot Shell which smuggles weapons and war vehicles. Lupin decides to help Zenigata out on his new case. But Interpol hired an ex-mercenary named Keith Hayden to rub out Lupin and his comrades. From Russia to Hawaii, expect yourself to see a level up on the Lupin TV movies.Written by
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 »
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 »

This was delivered to me this morning...
[holds out a notice]
Arsene Lupin III:
"Detective Zenigata: today, July 23, as of tweve o'clock noon, you are hereby dismissed as Chief Investigating Officer of the Lupin Task Force." Dismissed?
That's right! From this moment on, I'm not responsible for the arrest of you and your little cronies!

Oh, my life is falling apart! But after chasing you for twenty years and not having a single conviction, how can I blame them?... What...

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.
