Anime: Lupin III Bye Bye Liberty Crisis

The very first in the Lupin III Yearly Specials, a series of Made For TV Movies produced by TMS Entertainment and NTV. Bye-Bye Liberty Crisisnote  first aired in Japan on April 1st, 1989. It was also dubbed into English and released in the United Kingdom by Manga Entertainment in 1996 under the title Goodbye Lady Liberty.

Lupin has decided to give up his life of crime when he finds out that all the police computers in the world can predict his every move. Still, Jigen comes with a proposition for one last job, which involves stealing a large diamond called the Super Egg from the Statue of Liberty. However, when they are later joined by the young computer whizzkid Michael and the lovely lady Isabelle, who hides a lot more than she lets on, and an evil organization called the Three Masons is hot on their trail, they start learning of a terrible secret that might cause The End of the World as We Know It.

It was one of the only bits of the Lupin III franchise that got released in the UK, but not in the US. Thankfully, Discotek Media (who've already released a few entries in the franchise) announced that they would give the movie a DVD release in the US, including the english dub.
