I'm in front of the Ueno Tower Building.

As of 11pm, nothing suspicious

has been found here.

The people around are watching anxiously.

At 8.05 pm today,

A message saying, "Tonight at midnight

was sent to the building.

The police still haven't

identified the sender...

A bomb?

Give me a break.

That's scary, right next door.

midnight is approaching.

10 seconds to midnight.

- What the hell?

- Fireworks?

What's going on?

- What's that?

- E- Explosions?

Confirm the situation.

Yes, sir!

What was all that about?


- The security's switched off.

- What?

- Hurry and check!

- Yes, sir!

The 2nd floor Gallimard painting!



The fireworks at the next building

were launched using a timer.

I see.

It was a prank after all.

But why do something so elaborate?


There's a report from

the Tokyo Empire Museum!


Through here!

The Gallimard painting

exhibited here has vanished.

What's this?

I've taken the treasure

"I've taken the treasure, Lupin the 3rd"?


Lupin the 3rd?

D- Disaster!

He's here.

- He was missing, so...

- Ambulance!

Yes, sir!

The international phantom thief

Lupin the 3rd has finally reappeared.

He stole a Gallimard painting

worth 1.5 billion yen

from the Tokyo Empire Museum...

Security guard Hattori Takashi-san

interrupted his escape,

and was apparently killed in the struggle.

The MPD have released a warrant

for Lupin the 3rd's arrest

on suspicion of Hattori-san's murder,

and a nationwide manhunt has begun.


Police HQ

Lupin the 3rd has finally

reappeared in Japan.

As you know, Lupin the 3rd is

an international master thief.

MPD Division 1 Superintendent



However, there are

no photographs of him

and we have no knowledge

of his real face.

This time, he sent a bomb threat

to the Ueno Tower Building

so security would be relaxed

in the neighbouring museum.

He then entered using the PIN key,

distracted the guards with fireworks,

and cut off the security.

During that time,

he stole a Gallimard painting

worth 1.5 billion yen.

But while making his escape

he encountered security guard

Hattori Takashi-san,

and killed him in a struggle.

The surveillance footage is fragmentary

but records Lupin's movements.

Above all, we must catch him.

This despicable criminal, Lupin the 3rd!

You're making a big mistake.

This troublemaker...

Who's that?


Who are you?

My name is Inspector Zenigata,

of the International Police.

MPD International Investigator

Zenigata Koichi

- Inspector Zenigata?!

- Ah~ That's you.

I've heard rumours.

What brings you here?

What "big mistake"?

Where there is Lupin the 3rd,

there is Zenigata!


...this is not Lupin's crime.


What makes you think that?

The culprit this time killed someone.

Lupin is certainly a thief,

but he'd never commit

such a senseless murder.

I see.

But even Lupin,

confused by the guard's

sudden appearance,

- might kill...

- I have...

I have devoted my life as a detective

to arresting that man.

Outrageously distracting

the guards with fireworks.

That is certainly like Lupin.

But it's only "like" him.

That it reached the point of murder

is evidence this wasn't Lupin's work.

I see.

You're a full-time Lupin investigator.

I don't know for sure,

since you're often overseas,

but from what I hear

I seems Lupin has escaped you

every single time.

Well~ I won't deny that.

Lupin is a formidable opponent.

But this case has

nothing to do with Lupin.

I can smell it...

The stench of a rogue

using Lupin's name.

We can't let him get away with that!

Right, everyone?!

Shall we throw him out, sir?

In that case,

I'll let you conduct

your own investigation.

Thank you very much.

You'll need subordinates.



- Yes, sir.

- Yes, sir.
