Heh, this movie is great! I've watched some of the Lupin III series and enjoyed it but when I tried the movies they were . . . well . . . subpar. I did enjoy Twilight of the Gemini, but I like the Lupin sereis better than the movies. Here though is the exception. The Castle of Cagliostro is the great combination of Hayao Miyazaki and Katou Kazuhiko a.k.a. Monkey Punch. Based Monkey Punch's works, Miyazaki has Lupin help the Princess Clarisse who is being forced to marry the Count Cagliostro. The reason for this marriage iiiiiiiiiis? Anyone? . . . TREASURE!! When the two goat rings are joined it forms a clue to uncovering the hidden treasure of Cagliostro. Also while investigating the catacombs under the Cagliostro castle Lupin uncovers a money forging operation. And of course the whole gang is here Zenigata, Jigen, Goemon, and Fujiko even though the film focuses more on Lupin than the other characters. What I like the most is seeing the blend of animation styles, of the traditional Kazuhiko's Lupin (for example) and Miyazaki's style of animation. I had first seen this movie at BAAF, Big Apple Anime Fest in 2003 and the whole audience would burst out laughing. For one thing that is humorous is practically every movement has it's own sound to it. Example, when Lupin is on the roof of the castle, he slips and starts running down the slope going faster and faster. When he gets to the end he jumps stretching to a split, there's this boi-oing sound. I can't explain it well, suffice it to say though that this is a must have for any anime collector.
