After pulling off a heist at a Swiss Bank, Lupin is celebrating with Fujiko over a bottle of champagne – that is, until she tries to ditch him in the middle of the evening, snatching away a set of papers from the pile of loot. Fujiko then reveals that she only told Lupin to rob the bank so that she could get her hands on The Columbus Files, a document that points to the whereabouts of Columbus's greatest treasure: The Columbus Egg. However before she can say more, the pair is interrupted by a gang of armed men who also want the files. Rather than let them fall into enemy hands, Fujiko destroys the papers, claiming she has memorized them; however, she then falls off a cliff and loses her memory. Now, with the only clues to the treasure inside Fujiko’s mind, Lupin must keep her safe, find a way to unlock her memories, and find the treasure first!

When a series of murders involving police officers occurs, chaos erupts within the police headquarters; and in an attempt to keep the citizens calm, the police decide to bury the case in the shadows. Soon, however, tragedy strikes yet again. This time the killer is after Officer Satoh; he is shot in front of Ran, who promptly develops a case of amnesia and can’t remember anything – including the face of Satoh’s attacker. With the perpetrator now on the loose, Conan must now protect Ran at all costs, and bring this case out of the shadows and into the light!

While the main plot of these two feature length anime are somewhat different, and Conan is more family-friendly, both focus on the world of crime. Though Conan is trying to solve a crime and Lupin is attempting to commit one, both have a similar feel to them. Both have interesting plot twists, and equally over-the-top action sequences. Also both Columbus Files and Captured in Her Eyes see the central female protagonist suffering from amnesia, and in both cases, recovering their memories is the key to the situation. If you enjoyed one, then it's well worth checking out the other.
