The result was to change Lupin from a cartoony comedy to a gritty Film Noir and to have the main character not be Lupin but Fujiko Mine and with a great team behind this as well, it had alot going for it but did it pay off or was Lupin just grandpa anime? However, at episode 10 it gets weird. Both women have had their lives altered and manipulated. Sometimes it looks great but there are moments where it can be pretty stiff but to me, you can forgive alot in the animation department which isn't even that bad anyway if you have the art to back it up and man that's where the visuals truly stand out. The lack of main character development didn't affect me too much as I never expected any from the name. As Zenigata chases after Lupin, Fujiko chases after the ghost, Darenzo, and meets the real Ayan, who had been living underneath the opera house with Dorenzo.
The early stuff was a bit heavier, including some of the specials. However, with enough style in the name of art, people can and often do get caught up in it, describing style for the sake of style as brilliance in action. As any Lupin franchise fan knows, the history of the characters is volatile and trying to make any one back story canon will make your head explode. In a special room, Lupin explains the real events that occurred in the tragedy of Eulenspiegel and the process of brutally inducing mind control to little girls. A lot of people were put off by this - when you get to this point, let me assure you that everything is explained, save one detail, but that detail Oscar's resolution isn't really that important.
No amount of artistic imagery, beautiful visuals and jazzy music can compensate for bad writing, pretentious bullshit, and a middle finger ending. Benachrichtige uns erst dann wenn du all dies bereits vergeblich versucht hast. This was exactly what the series needed. But, as i said, the conclusion made it up for me. It certainly does sound cool and it gets the job done, makes you feel like you're watching a slick but gritty crime movie. I get the feeling the director justified all of the nudity for the same reason, on top of the otaku angle.
Much like the show itself, the art style feels very familiar but is very fresh at the same time. That said, a lot of people will find it pretentious, and I can;t blame them. I won't spoil the major elements of this plot, but all I will say is that the ending comes across as quite the surprising shocker yet makes sense once you put together the elements of the organization revealed from earlier episodes. In diesem Fall könnt ihr er es euch also auch sparen die selbe Meldung nochmal abzuschicken. The art and animations were eccellent. It's was made in 2012 but feels like the 70s, it's a Japanese product that has a very western look and feel to it, most anime fans are use to serial shows while this is mostly episodic, Fujiko Mine herself is a different main character than you would expect to see in an anime, you just don't see many femme fatales as the lead in anime but the show isn't just different for the sake of it, it all fits into the story. As much as i hate to admit it, this ending felt very appopriate and satisfying.
A constant with this incarnation of Lupin is always the eye-catching and stylish animation, and this ep is no exception. The whole show is about social outcasts and people's idea of how you should or shouldn't act. Oscar's just a creep, sure there's an episode where they get into his back story but the conclusion to all that makes me pity him more than feel sorry for him. The main villains here that are the owl people are all about control, they all dress alike, talk alike and want people to dress, act, and think how they want them to, everything about them is very orderly, they are everything our main characters hate Story: 9 Much like Cowboy Bebop, this is an episodic series with an overarching story-line and much like Cowboy Bebop, the stand alone episodes play into the themes of the overarching story-line. I told you it was gonna get pretentious.
On the other hand, Zenigata looks almost. Still, there were some good ones, and it was an enjoyable and unique experience. Also in the room lies Dr. Lupin is as funny, clever, and is as much of a jack ass as he always is and I love him for it. Simple~~ Can't say I liked it as much as I wanted to like it. I actually liked the fact, or rather didn't mind, that none of it happened to Fujiko, and that it was all just an elaborate detour from one of her usual heists. In fact the whole series could be seen as the journey of an independent and self-confident woman who successfully gets rid of an ultimately fake past inflicted on her.
Könnten wir diesen Aufwand mit unaufdringlicher Werbung alleine decken würden wir es tun. A lot will find it hard to follow at times - it is. Seriously, we all know that Fujiko is the dorobou neko that likes having sex or at least tease men in her favor. This one is happily the latter. Instead, it seems the fansubbers decided to go for the blind literal translation, which it's not a good idea for a language like Japanese, where context matters much more than English. This series, of all the Lupin series, is the closest to the manga. But the rest of the music was fantastic, Goemon's theme in particular, that flutey sound that has become as iconic for me as the main Lupin theme.
The antagonists represents the societal norms in some way. I don't think Fujiko was trying to mock Aisha in the end. Lupin even called her out on her cruelty. He was basically only there when they needed him to cut something. The music was produced by Shinichiro Watanabe and composed by Naruyoshi Kikuchi and while not quite as memorable as Yuji Ohno's music. The next day, Oscar initiates a plan to capture Lupin.
