| Lupin is back for another joyride.
Angel Tactics is an outstanding anime adventure starring those lovable criminals, the Lupin gang.

It starts off in fine fashion with Lupin and co. infiltrating Area 51, stealing a potentially alien artifact, and escaping in a UFO for good measure. Much like a classic James Bond opening, it's over the top and a lot of fun, plus here it does tie into the main plot as well.

This time the Lupin gang are up against an all female terrorist organization, the Bloody Angels. They want the artifact from Lupin, and it leads to an engaging story with some nice twists.

Lupin, his trusty sidekick Jigen, his sexy accomplice Fujiko, and his swordsman buddy Goemon all are in top form in this. The fun dynamic between the characters is front and center, and each character has a female terrorist to deal with as well. In Lupin's case, we get an unexpectedly tender story out of it.

Of course Inspector Zenigata is on their tail, and at one point he even flies a fighter jet equipped with missiles! He has some great one on one scenes with Lupin as well, very effective stuff.

Pretty much, this has everything you can ask for in a Lupin tale. Great comedy, cool action, and some solid drama, starring a classic cast of lovable characters. Done with style, terrific animation, and a very cool jazz soundtrack by Yuji Ohno.

Without giving away the story, I'll just say that this is a terrifically done anime that left me very satisfied. Lupin fans or newcomers, check this one out.
