Many people are falling prey to a suspicious new religion. Lupin III infiltrates this group, hoping to steal the treasure their leader keeps hidden. There he lays eyes on the beautiful, bewitching woman who has the leader enthralled. This is the story of how fashionable female thief Fujiko Mine first met Lupin III, the greatest thief of his generation.

there are major spoilers within, so watch your stepCollapse )

All in all, it's a dazzling Lupin adaption in terms of style. Fujiko is wonderful, and the ending of the show is what saves it. Whether you're a Lupin fan or not, it's definitely worth a viewing if only for its fantastic art direction.

Here's the NSFW opening:

Do you like Fujiko? Do you like Fujiko's boobs and butt? Do you like naked girls in general?

If so, then THIS IS THE SHOW FOR YOU

This show was really good. I have never watched much/any Lupin III stuff, except Castle of Cagliostro, but this show's style (and length of only 13 episodes) enticed me and so I gave it a try and really loved it. It's about Fujiko (surprise!!), how she meets all those colorful characters and her past. It's fun but I found it really interesting and even dark at certain points. Also, she's naked at some point in almost every episode. And if she isn't naked, there's likely to be another naked girl instead. I'm talking like full frontal nudity here. I love how she just doesn't care though. "Yeah, I'm naked, SEEYA LATER"

I liked the story overall. It almost reminded me of Cowboy Bebop in how most of the episodes could be standalone but there's an overarching plot, and the last two episodes are where shit gets real. The episodes aren't AS episodic in this show, but I do like how they aren't necessarily directly related to each other. I like that way of story telling - just a little bit is revealed at a time. It's nice.

I think I liked the first half better. I feel as though towards the end shit just got REALLY bizarre and... I don't want to say too much because I think everyone should just watch it. It's very good, and while I do think it was strange towards the end, I still really enjoyed it. Also, there was planning out for later events from the beginning which is always nice to find out.

GOOD SHOW. GO WATCH.
