With a pretty slick looking package that will tempt a number of fans, Kadokawa is reminding folks to get their orders in for Lupin the 3rd: Daisuke Jigen’s Gravestone. The release is scheduled for November 28th, 2014 where the Blu-ray edition is priced at 7,800 yen while the DVD gets a limited edition release at 6,800 yen that mirrors the Blu-ray release and a regular edition DVD priced at 3,800 yen. The release will come with a 100page book that details into the visuals for the film with interviews with the cast and crew. On disc extras include two audio commentaries with one by the cast and one by the staff.
The film, animated by TMS Entertainment, is an interesting one because it’s set to be a spinoff of the 2012 TV series Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine. The feature is directed by Takeshi Koike, who served as the animation director on the Fujiko Mine series, based on the script by Yuuya Takahashi.
Plot concept: Lupin and Jigen infiltrate East Doroa to capture the secret treasure Little Comet. Queen Malta, a singer from East Doroa, was just assassinated in neighboring West Doroa, resulting in a tense situation at the border. The duo successfully steal the Little Comet, but a sniper tries to take out Jigen during their getaway. Jigen faces a powerful foe named Yael Okuzaki, an assassin who prepares graves for his targets before executing his kills. It is said that no one has survived after Yael Okuzaki makes a grave for that target.
