Harimao's treasure. It's worth over 8 billion dollars and it's seems like everyone's looking for it! But nothing's going to stop Lupin from the treasure this time. With his faithful companions Jigen, Goemon and Fujiko-- Lupin travels the globe, dodging bullets and Inspector Zenigata, to find the three statues that make up the key to the treasure.

Hermann von Diett was originally called Herr Maforditte (ヘルマフォーディーテ) a play on the word "hermaphrodite" (ヘルマフロディーテ). In the script, the character was going to have a child like voice. When it got to the production stage, the character was changed to Hermann von Diett with its pronunciation also changed and the voice to be of a woman.[4]In the credits, the character was credited as Neo Nazi Leader (ネオナチリーダー, Neonachi rīdā). The original name was kept in the International versions with different translations, Clyde Mandelin who was involved with the Funimation translation had used Herr Maforditte in the subtitles synced to the Japanese audio.

Translation Notes

  • In the original, Lupin says nothing when he backpedals to view the sculpture of the naked woman. In the German dub, he says, "Oh my, my, my, what's this?"


  • This was the first TV Special and the first intended role that Kanichi Kurita plays Lupin III after the passing of Yasuo Yamada.
  • Sir Archer owns an Aston Martin DB5 and a Walther PPK, both famously used in the James Bond series. The Special also references this however only in the Japanese original, since the English dub rewritten this to "every spy movie".
  • This is one of the few known Lupin animations where split screening is used throughout.
  • This was the last Lupin project that Osamu Dezaki had worked on and his last TV Special where he was the director. It was not his last project for TMS has he worked on two Hamtaro movies afterwards with his final work for them being Tottoko Hamutaro: Ham Ham Paradi-chu! Hamutarō to Fushigi no Oni no Ehonto.
  • The English release by Funimation had cut the credits and replaced it with their own, it is also one of their few releases that kept the Japanese Lupin III logo rather than the Lupin the 3rd logo that was used in the International masters. It is speculated that this special and The Secret of Twilight Gemini may have been acquired when the Chase Tracer name was considered.
  • When Funimation got the rights to the TV Special, originally it was going to be called just Harimao's Treasure. [5]
  • The German dub renamed Göring to Krang, a reference to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
