This Summer Goes to the Thieves
He’s fearless, crafty, and elusive… the grandson of the great Phantom Thief Lupin. Inheriting all of his grandfather’s skills as a thief and then some, he’s Lupin III. This summer, Shun Oguri is Lupin in his first and greatest heist!
The prize is the world’s most beautiful heirloom
In 48 B.C., Julius Caesar gave Cleopatraa diamond necklace as proof of his love for her. Over the centuries, this necklace became a legendary and highly-coveted treasure and symbol of ultimate beauty dubbed the Crimson Heart of Cleopatra (C.H.C). Inlaid with a ruby Red Diamond, the necklace was complete. But since ancient times, nobody has owned the two pieces together.
Lupin’s gang takes on rival thieves and dark powers!
In possession of the Red Diamond is the Navarone Security Company, Asia’s largest security firm, under its shady CEO Pramuk, who also rules the Thai underworld. Meanwhile, the necklace is owned by Thomas Dawson, who rose to notoriety as former partner of the Lupin the Phantom Thief, Lupin III’s grandfather. While Pramuk and Dawson eye each other’s halves of the Crimson Heart, Interpol Inspector Koichi Zenigata vainly pursues them both, but is eluded at every turn. When Dawson moves to anoint Lupin III as next leader of The Works, a syndicate of thieves under Dawson ’s sponsorship, it sparks an uprising by Lupin’s rival in the group, Michael Lee. Eventually, Lee’s mutiny leads to the death of Dawson, tipping the scales of power in the thieving world to Pramuk and paving the way for him to steal the necklace.
Impregnable Security System “Arc of Navarone”！
Pramuk holds the C.H.C. in a massive security fortress dubbed the “Arc of Navarone” located on an uncharted, heavily-guarded island. As inheritor of Dawson’s last will, Lupin III recruits Daisuke Jigen, Fujiko Mine and Goemon Ishikawa to help him penetrate the Arc of Navarone and steal back the treasure. But is it a death trap? And what tragic fate does the treasure portend? This summer, Lupin III begins his first and greatest heist!
