Lupin the 3rd vies with a trio of thieves known as Cat’s Eye (sisters Hitomi, Rui, and Ai Kisugi) and a group of arms dealers called Faden for a triptych painted by the siblings’ father that bears the key to a treasure once sought by the Nazis. Ryo Saeba stands nearby as Rui picks up Hitomi and Ai in her car. This film brings Tsukasa Hojo’s manga Cat’s Eye into the CU. Ryo Saeba is one of the protagonists of another series by Tsukasa, City Hunter, which has had several crossovers with Cat’s Eye.
This crossover is one of hundreds included in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, to be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2 by Win Scott Eckert!
