Lupin III is a rogue to make any father rogue proud, but not if that father, recently escaped from prison after being presumed dead for years, thinks his son is a scurrilous imposter, and that son is stunned by the fact that his father is alive. Craftiness, skill and a taste of tail definitely run in the family.
And the Lupin family gets large when he finally encounters the samurai Goemon, a warrior who feels he can learn more from this master thief than from his own master; and into the ranks of the Lupin clan comes his arch rival Fujiko, though he'd be best advised to watch his back - especially when his life becomes a random and suspicious string of preposterous events.
Lupin gets the feeling he's being toyed with for someone else's sick amusement, almost as if his world was being captured and cartooned in sequential panels...
