Plot

Gentleman thief Lupin III is back and ready for his next caper unless legendary sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, has anything to say about it! When Holmes' longtime partner, Dr. Watson, is murdered, none other than Lupin tops the suspects list. With Holmes fast closing in, Lupin must prove his innocence and bring a shadowy organization called The Raven to heel if he wants to live to steal another day.

Characters

Arsène Lupin III — Lupin is the world's most wanted gentleman thief and grandson of legendary thief Arsène Lupin. While at first glance Lupin appears to be fun-loving, flighty, and perhaps even "goofy", his surface facade overcoats a brilliant imagination and a thorough knowledge of a hundred varying sciences. While he has been arrested and thrown in jail on a number of occasions, he has always managed to break out. His infatuation with women, and Fujiko Mine in particular, is perhaps his biggest weakness, as it often lands him in undesirable situations.

Daisuke Jigen — Jigen is a smooth gunman that accompanies Lupin in his endeavors and heists. Despite Jigen disliking Lupin's lust for women, he remains Lupin's loyal and reliable partner. Despite Jigen's gruff facade, he has an ironic sense of humor and genuinely enjoys participating in capers with Lupin and Goemon. Among Lupin's group, Jigen is the least apprehensive at taking human life. While he considers killing women and children taboo, he is willing to put down any man who offers a threat.

Goemon Ishikawa XIII — is the thirteenth generation of a renegade samurai bloodline, a descendant of the historical figure Ishikawa Goemon. Goemon has an extreme sense of pride in his abilities, and when he cannot accomplish a task, usually feels extreme shame and remorse afterward. Although typically a person of mellow aloofness, Goemon also has a deep admiration for beautiful women. If Goemon has a true weakness, it is that he readily trusts any beautiful woman that seems superficially trustworthy or innocent, often landing him into trouble.

Fujiko Mine — Fujiko is not part of Lupin's gang; however, she often participates in their exploits either as a partner or a competitor. Her principle tactic is to stick with Lupin and company until the plunder is made available then double-cross her colleagues. Frequently, she finds it necessary to betray Lupin to get close to the enemy, then after ingratiating herself into his trust will acquire the loot and escape. Due to her history with the group, Jigen and Goemon are often skeptical about working with her in fear of another betrayal.

Inspector Koichi Zenigata — Zenigata is an incredibly talented, yet often bumbling police officer who has made it his life's goal to capture Lupin III. Zenigata is widely respected among his fellow officers at Interpol as an expert criminal catcher. He was able to discover security flaws and took down countless gangs and criminals long before he met Lupin. However, he has failed to capture Lupin on several occasions and is often outsmarted by the master thief.

Albert d'Andrésy — Albert works in the Central Directorate of the Judicial Police, but has higher ambitions of controlling all of France. He used to be a thief and Lupin's rival but gave it up, stating that he had bigger goals. Albert displays a cunning and ruthless personality, as shown when he tricks Lupin into doing his dirty work for him by posing as a dead mentor.
