* BaseBreaker: ''Secret of Twilight Gemini'' is a love it or hate it type deal for varying reasons:
** The most common criticism is [[DependingOnTheWriter the way it portrays Fujiko.]] Newer fans who're used to her being a ClassyCatBurglar, who's witty and Lupin's equal, didn't take kindly to ''[=SoTG's=]'' portrayal of her where [[MsFanservice she's promiscuous]] and [[SexyDiscretionShot sleeps]] [[SexWithTheEx with Lupin]] to persuade him to let her in for a cut of the treasure he's after. The irony being, Fukjio's characterization here, is actually closer to the way she was originally portrayed in the manga.
** Others simply didn't appreciate the sheer amount of nudity and {{fanservice}} present in the film, even though there's a censored version that [[DeletedScene removes these elements altogether.]]
** And, for some, it's a case of SoOkayItsAverage, when compared to the other films in the series; most notably, ''Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro''.
