I 'm Japanese and I grow up with Hayao Miyazaki's work.
I assure this film is the best film of Lupin the third altough Monky Paunch did not like it.
offcourse this is one ob the best of his total works as like "laputa".
It is not like "Kiki" "mononoke-proncess",but,this is his early work and he had best team for making this,Music,Mechanic Design,producer,etc when he made this.
You will find out the essense of fis talent, his tecnich and his story telling.
I think his best work are this film and "Laputa" ,you must see them!
