GUESS WHO'S BACK.

I know next to nothing about this series, and I'm making this post rather hastily. There's a few things I've gathered though. The animation is gorgeous. It's a throwback to there series' 1960s origins (they even brought back the green coat). It seems to focus on Fujiko more than ever, so it's probably about Lupin's and her first meeting. It's pretty NSFW. The first episode just aired to day.

I'm not sure if it's just called Lupin III, or if it's called Lupin III: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna (The Woman Called Fujiko Mine). But there's an absurdly low amount of hype on the western front, as evident by the fact that I'm only finding out about the first Lupin III anime made in the past 25+ years the day that the first episode aired. That needs to change.

Re: New Lupin III Series

I need to see it! I love Lupin the 3rd. 40 years old and still exciting since nothing beats good old fashion cops and robbers. So how was the first episode?

Re: New Lupin III Series

Oh mybad. It is a good series, likely one of my favorites. Very over the top sometimes. There's one episode that the gang discovers Jesus Christ had a twin sister, who was born a vampire. No joke. And yet it still makes more sense than twilight.

Re: New Lupin III Series

Subs have been released for the first episode, as I understand it.

Will watch when I get home.

Re: New Lupin III Series

That felt more like a movie than an episode of a series, I'm impressed.

I'm not complaining, but there's a lot more titties than I had expected. Anime of the year for sure. The bodyguard's story was on par with last weeks episode, and I can't wait for more.

just watched the first episode.

completely blown away, the animation is stellar, lupin iii himself is hilarious, and his chemistry with fujiko really works

strong contender for anime of the year

This episode was an order of magnitude better than the less-than-stellar first episode—much, much better paced. Jigen got dat Denzel Washington swagger going on.

Is he being voiced by Kiyoshi Kobayashi? I believe I recognize the voice.

i'm guessing the next episode is gonna be for goemon
Episode 3 is dubbed "The Lady and the Samurai," so that's a pretty safe bet.

This weeks episode was absolutely fantastic. I loved everything about it.

Why is Jigen so swag?

But I'm definitely looking forward to what the series is going to do once its done introducing us to all of the characters.

Guessing we'll have a Goemon and...maybe a Zenigata one? But I look forward to the first Lupin and Jigen meeting.

I wasn't sure about this episode at first, but proved me wrong in the second half.

Another fantastic episode with fantastic visuals.

well it's usually part of goemon's character in lupin series for him to cut off people's clothes so it felt appropriate
