Lupin III Wiki

Daisuke Jigen's Gravestone (次元大介の墓標 Jigen Daisuke no Bohyō?) is the 5th Lupin the 3rd OVA released on June 21, 2014. It was released as the 2nd anime media from the Lupin the IIIrd Universe after The Woman Called Fujiko Mine.


By bringing her voice to West Doroa, the East Doroan singer Queen Malta hoped that she could heal the rift between the two countries. Instead, her murder on stage by an unknown assassin only served to increase the tension between the two countries. Already a country known for its incredibly low crime rate, East Doroa increases security in preparation for war--but security is nothing to the likes of super-genius thief Lupin III!

Still, when he and partner Daisuke Jigen swipe the Little Comet gemstone from an embassy in East Doroa, it's a little convenient that the police seem to know their every move. And worse, before they can even make their getaway, the pair find themselves under the crosshairs of a certain hitman--the same one that killed Queen Malta! Something's fishy, and in order to confirm his suspicions, Jigen visits the cemetery. There, he finds himself staring at his own gravestone. It's a calling card of the sniper, Yael Okuzaki... and no one targeted by him has ever escaped the grave! But why is he only after Jigen, and not Lupin? And things only get more complicated with Fujiko around!

In March 2014, it was announced that The Woman Called Fujiko Mine's animation director and character designer, Takeshi Koike, was directing an animated film that serves as a "continuation spin-off" to the TV series. Yu Kiyozono also returned to produce the film. Koike's fellow Redline creators Katsuhito Ishii and James Shimoji served as advisor and music composer respectively. The film was split into two parts and had a limited screening at the Shinjuku Wald 9 theater from June 21–27, 2014.[6] It was released on DVD and Blu-ray on November 28, 2014, with an art book included in the limited edition.[7] The 30-track soundtrack to the movie was released on December 10, 2014.[8] On December 21, 2014, Discotek Media announced their acquisition of the North American distribution rights to the film, which will be retitled Lupin the Third: Jigen's Gravestone for the American market. Their upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release of the film will include the company's first original English dub, which is being produced in cooperation with Bang Zoom! Entertainment.[9]


  • The gravestones of Lupin and Fujiko say "5st" and "6st" instead of 5th and 6th due to that the animators copied and pasted Jigen's gravestone and changed the numbers.
  • On Fujiko's gravestone, it says "FAMME FATALF" rather than Femme fatale.
  • In the film Okuzakis name is written "Yael", while the text during the ending song writes "Jael".


  • In Japan, this is classed as a 2 part OVA rather than a movie.
  • The Lupin the IIIrd title was used in the Japanese original, the English dub and the home video release of the Italian dub. For the French, German and the original Italian dub release used Lupin III (Lupin III. for the German dub).
  • The English dub does not dub the preview at the beginning of Part 2.
  • This was the first release rated for a BBFC certificate in the UK by TMS themselves instead of Western Connection, Manga, StudioCanal or Anime Limited. It also uses the International name rather than Discotek's Jigen's Gravestone[10].
  • The countries of West and East Doroa are based on West and East Germany. Since this takes place in the 1970s, it was before the unification of the two countries.
  • Goemon appears as a cameo in the Calamity File that Lupin gave Fujiko, it is his only appearance in the film.
  • The scene of Queen Marta's assassination bares strong similarities to the opera scene from "The Fifth Element" (1997) & Scooter's "Ti Sento." (2009).
