Lupin the Third: A Woman Named Fujiko Mine [Aug. 10th, 2012|01:37 pm]
Anime In Your Face


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


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.

(spoilers for the whole dang show!!)

I really liked the portrayal of the characters in this. Especially GOEMON who is basically Mewd here. Lupin is great too, and this might be my favorite portrayal of him. They really play up the whole thrill-seeking aspect of his character here which I like.

I was also really worried they were going to go down the whole "oh Fujiko is this way because she has a traumatized past" route so I'm glad they subverted that in the end and it's just how she's always been.

I also really liked the episode that is just the Cuban Missile Crisis, like exactly. It was one of my favorites just because of how ridiculous and fun it was.

Also Jigen looks SO SCARY ALL THE TIME. It's GREAT.

I LOVED when she was like, "Um, I've ALWAYS stolen and indulged in sex." it's just who she is. I love her. But I still thought the end was sort of strange how it was so suddenly subverted, still great though

Omg that episode. I like when Goemon slices a missile in half. OKAY GOEMON

I like how the only person Fujiko actually had sex with was ZENIGATA. And then Oscar is like too jealous and goes crazy
