The Castle Of Cagliostro (Japan 1980)

Rating: ****
Director: Hiyao Miyazaki

By far the best of the Lupin III series, and one of the best anime films I've ever seen. Hiyao Miyazaki directs as Lupin, Goeman, and Jigan set off to claim the fabled treasure of Cagliostro and run into a heap of trouble with a kidnapped princess and inspector Zenigata on their heels. Great story, great animation, great characters, and just a lot of fun. The English dubbing is surprisingly good, thanks to the folks at Streamline Pictures.
