Recap / Lupin IIIS 1 E 6

Rainy Afternoons Are Bad

One rainy day, Lupin and Jigen are brought to Fujiko by a mysterious man who calls himself Happy Meal. He happens to work for a mob boss known as the Weasel, who hides a secret that had been unknown even to him for six months. Following a surgery, he had his memory wiped, and his memory is due to return soon. Naturally, his caretaker, Fujiko, is interested in this secret, and so is Lupin. Unfortunately, just before his memory was to come back to him, the Weasel suddenly dies of a heart attack. Lupin and Fujiko almost get killed by an assassin who worked for the Weasel, who reveals that the body will soon be burnt, much to Fujiko's dismay. To complicate things further for Lupin, before the burning Zenigata intends to perform an autopsy, as he regards the sudden death as suspicious. It is now up to Lupin and his gang (both the regulars and the guests) to retrieve the secret before the body is delivered to the police station for the autopsy.
