It begins with a late night heist of a bronze bear statue, followed by the destruction of the Euro Tunnel, which lands Sir Archer's insurance company, Loyd Insurance, over seven billion pounds in debt. Despite this outstanding amount, Archer remains unfazed; convinced he can settle the affair by claiming the legendary Treasure of Harimao. Granddaughter Diana, almost as wily as her clever grandfather, decides to assist him. At first foils to each others plans, the Archers are forced to team up with Lupin and Company under a tenuous 70/30 agreement. But as the goal draws nearer, allegiances are changed, and it soon becomes a matter of who's playing who.

* AnimationBump: This special features possibly the smoothest animation of any ''Franchise/LupinIII'' related feature. Not a shock considering it was directed by the late, great Creator/OsamuDezaki. (an early entry in his long career was his run as a storyboard artist on [[Anime/LupinIIIGreenJacket "Green Jacket"]])

The plot centers around [[PlotCoupons three statues]], an aging billionare, and a hidden treasure. So it should come as no surprise that Lupin [[CaperCrew and his gang]] are out to claim it for themselves. This time, however, they may have met their match, as [[CulturedBadass Sir Archer]] and his granddaughter, [[DefrostingIceQueen Diana]], also have their sights on the treasure. As does The Neo Himmel, a group of neo nazis led by [[VillainousCrossDresser Herr]] [[PunnyName Mafroditte.]]
