Anime Spoiler-Free review: Lupin the IIIrd Goemon’s Blood Spray

Rightstuf synopsis

Everything Must Return to the Soil

A yakuza boss hires Goemon Ishikawa, a modern day samurai, to protect him aboard his cruise ship casino. Everything goes sideways however when a terrifyingly powerful man— the so called “Ghost of Bermuda”— shows up to put world-famous thief Lupin in the ground… right when Lupin’s trying to rob the very same ship! With his employer dead in the ensuing chaos, Goemon’s honor is at stake, and the only way to preserve it is with blood.

But this opponent is like no other, and to make things right, Goemon may need to sharpen not only his sword, but himself as well! With a little help from Lupin and Jigen, of course. It’s crimson and steel in Takeshi Koike’s newest Lupin film, Goemon’s Bloodspray!

Warning: Even though this is a spoiler-free review, I might mention moments from the first film Jigen’s Gravestone. Throughout the review, I am going to assume you watched that movie.

Anime Spoiler-Free Review: Lupin the IIIrd Jigen’s Gravestone

Rightstuf synopsis:

By bringing her voice to West Doroa, the East Doroan singer Queen Malta hoped that she could heal the rift between the two countries in Lupin the 3rd: Jigen’s Gravestone.

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 Jigen Daisuke 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!
