Blood Seal - Eternal Mermaid is the twenty-second Lupin III television special. It originally aired on December 2, 2011.


An aquamarine gemstone, the Mermaid's Scale, appears in a secret, underground auction. The queen of the underworld (nicknamed the Bearslayer) coerces the professional jewel-lifter Lupin into stealing the rock for her. Lupin swipes the stone, and quickly discovers not only that it's a forgery, but that the real Mermaid's Scale is part of an unsolved riddle that leads to transcending mortality! Soon, the Bearslayer is found murdered in cold blood! Her seemingly immortal young aide, Misa, is kidnapped by the arms dealer Himuro. The race is on for Lupin and his gang to locate the secret to eternal life... before it's used to send the Earth into a state of endless war!
