Hemingway Papers is a pretty enjoyable early Lupin special.
9 October 2009 | by psychogoateeSee all my reviews

Lupin and the gang end up on an island where two tyrants are having a conflict, and a sleazy arms dealer is in the middle. That guy wants a treasure, and of course so do Lupin and Fujiko.

Jigen has a pretty interesting role in this, getting hired by one of the tyrants to infiltrate them and get revenge against a crazy mercenary, who he has a problem with from the past. They really play up Jigen's stoic badass nature in this, which is nice.

Goemon hears that a chest can't be cut by his legendary Zantetsuken blade, so it's his mission to cut it. He's funny and cool as always, the straight man to the more wacky things happening around him. Inspector Zenigata is entertaining in his few token scenes as well.

Fujiko has some entertaining dialogue with Lupin here, of course, their chemistry is classic stuff. They do some thievery in this, as you'd imagine.

There's a woman, Maria, who owns a bar on the island and has her own issues with the villains here. She's pretty cool, and is a fine guest star in this story.

Pretty much, the Lupin gang fight people, have some amusing interactions with each other, commit some crimes, and do some heroic stuff as well. This one doesn't stand out, but it gets the job done.

If you enjoy the Lupin brand of entertainment, this should be on your watch list.
