the Last Job is the 21st Lupin the 3rd television special. It originally aired on February 12, 2010.

Synopsis

Has the intrepid Inspector Zenigata bitten the final bullet?

In the chaos following Lupin’s heist of a Buddha avatar statuette, Inspector Zenigata is mortally wounded in pursuit of the master thief. But Lupin’s not to blame; the maniacal supervillain Morgana intervened, swiping the Buddha figure, and sending “Pops” to his fate. Morgana is after the ancient power of the Fuma called Fujin, with the beautiful ninja Asuka also racing to find the secret to Fujin, but Fujiko Mine keeps reaching her hand into the pie and causing even more complications. What is Fujin, and who will wield its secret power?

Notes

  • The Last Job is the sequel to the manga only stories in Lupin III H Volume 1 and Lupin III M Neo Volume 5 that first appeared in the Lupin III Official Magazine. Since these were not translated and not as accessible outside of Japan, it meant that Morgana's backstory is not explained as well as André Maxim's motive against Jigen in the TV Special. It also explains more of Asuka's backstory.
  • The manga adaptation that appeared in Lupin III H Volume 1 had only adapted the scenes in the church and on the secret base, André Maxim also appears briefly between the two scenes.
  • It was the final television special that featured Gorō Naya as Inspector Zenigata along with Eiko Masuyama as Fujiko and Makio Inoue as Goemon however it was not their final performance. Their final performance was Lupin Family Line-up and it was Goro Naya's last ever appearance as Zenigata as he passed away shortly after.
  • Likewise for the Italian dub, it was the last role of Sandro Pellegrini as Jigen before his death.
  • Both Asuka and Maya come from the Fuma Clan. The clan previous appeared in Part 2 Episode 36 and The Plot of the Fuma Clan.
  • This was the last TV Special to be animated in SD, starting from Blood Seal - Eternal Mermaid they were animated in HD.
  • The US Discotek release was going to be bundled with a DVD copy [1] however this was dropped to Blu-ray only. This was due to poor sales of Blood Seal of the Eternal Mermaid and Goemon's Bloodspray. [2]
