You guys keeping up with Part IV? how you liking it? I'm waiting to watch it after I rewatch the rest of series 1 and 3. Alot of the early episodes from series 1 literally make no sense but I enjoy them. It just blows my mind how inconsistent they are.
>>
I've heard a few people say that "Lupin wasn't kid friendly till The Castle of Cagliostro came out" but the first part seems pretty fucking kid friendly. Is the second part darker or something?
>>
>>137582088
It was edgier the 1st half but It never goes that far so I don't know why people bitch about CoC. The episodes actually got better after Myazaki took over. Lupin became more charasmatic and had more heart, Fujiko became less of a useless whore, and zenigata became less of a dick and more of what he is today. Not the mention the later episodes were more fun and made more sense. He really made the franchise better than it would of ever been without him. If you really want an edgier Lupin, read the manga, watch the Fujiko Mine series or a few of the ovas.
>>
>>137581878
Reminder that Part II in it's entirety is coming out in the US this year from Discotek Media and you should go to there site everyday to watch for announcements and then preorder it as soon as it's up.

Fuck I love discotek.
>>
Favorite Series: First series but honorable mention to 'The Woman Called Fujiko Mine'

Favorite episodes: It's been so long since I watched them, time to look for a torrent!

Favorite movies/ovas: I actually liked CoC despite its sliiightly childish demeanor. But I also enjoyed Seven Days Rhapsody, The Secret of Twilight Gemini and Farewell to Nostradamus

Favorite Character: Daisuke Jigen

Favorite Jacket: Green, admittedly

Favorite Manga story: has been even longer since I read the manga.

The episode with Lupin in jail is my favorite from Series 1.
>>
>>137582720
It's a shame only the first 79 episodes have the amazing english dub.

Wish they could finish it.

Also i'm not paying over $100 for the whole series so it better be a good deal especially considering we can watch all of it online for free.
>>
>>137582836
that's my favorite also. It really shows the relationship between Lupin and Zenigata and how they think.

I'm not looking for edgier anything, I just don't understand how it's considered dark.
>>
>>137583084
Well for the 1970's it was edgy. especially considering animation was strictly for kids back then. It was considered the 1st animated Japanese show for adults because of the amount of death. I mean people are killed left and right. Not to mention all the sexuality. That's why it's considered dark.
>>
>>137582829
You have good taste. although most of those ovas are crap. besides CoC, I'd recommend Fuma Conspiracy, Gold Babylon, and Walther P38.

You've got silly scenes like that from the start, but didn't in the same episode (or was it in his debut) Goemon cut some guys in half?

Then you've got this moment from Lupin, where he threatens some guy at gun point to go back to the criminal world since he admired his abilities.

I can see how it's overall light though, even in the first 10 episodes, still, many of the dark comments like exist mainly due to the second series - you've got really goofy stuff, like many episodes about Lupin helping random people, Zenigata claiming a few times that Lupin never killed anyone or Goemon always just cutting people's clothes and weapons, never killing anyone... aside from the rare times when he did kill like a small child with psychic powers... .

And then in another episode you can get Lupin preparing a trap for a rival and laughing while watching him defeated and about to be blown up. The second series' tone could still get in the darker side for the franchise although those episodes were the minority.
>>
>>137583384
I'll look into them and watch them, I have a list of lupin junk and I'm trying to find the means to get all of them for safe keeping.

Just read the pycal episode from series 1 in manga form. It's actually better the show. In the episode Pycal kidnaps Fujiko and asks her for some shit she stole from him and tries to make her tell him by hanging her over a body of water.

In the original manga story he first tries to make her tell him by raping her. Then He fucks her a second time and she likes it. apparently they were a couple at some point.

I asked Sonny Strait on twitter if there were any plans for them dubbing Part IV. he said not "yet"

I really hope they use the blue look for future tv specials. Please. Just change up things visually.

It's so stupid that even one of the specials that was clearly using series 1 inspired designs had to use the red jacket colors.

>Lupin wasn't kid friendly

The anime was pretty dark and serious for what anime was like back then.

To say nothing of the manga where Lupin will rape and murder people on a whim.

Which one are you referring to? they used the green jacket for like 4 movies and 6 tv shows.

Part IV is getting a dub, but it will mainly be the cast from the Pioneer dub.

Even though I loved how funny it originally was back when it was on adult swim, I hope this new dub is closer to the Japanese.

>>137588844
Hope Michelle Ruff returns as Fujiko. She did some great acting in the Fujiko spinoff series. She's great in everything honestly. Man I can't believe this dub is actually happening. How was this not talked about it on /a/? This is huge news. I'm sure most people here starting watching anime because of the Lupin Dub, or Case Closed, or Trigun, or Bebop.
>>
>>137588998
Michelle Ruff's voice is sexy as fuck. I wish Bleach would return just so we can hear her do best girl again.

It say's Richard Epcar is directing the episodes and are recording now but it doesn't say how it's being released or by what? Is Funimation putting it out? pioneer? Will it be on toonami? direct to DVD/Blu Ray?

It's hard to decide when Lupin is the cutest but this is my order

5. the rest
4. Series 1
3. Fujiko's unlucky days
2. Walther P38
1. Cagliostro

I will say he looks weird as fuck in Dead or Alive. His eyebrows look real bushy. Almost looks like Evil Lupin from the Red Jacket series.

Blue Jacket series. Before that he had a generic thin build. Now he's pretty shredded in terms of his stomach. He has sexy abs.

Personally for me, it's:

5. Green Jacket.
4. Farewell to Nostradamus.
3. Cagliostro.
2. Part IV.
1. Fuma Conspiracy.
>>
Nostradamas is an interesting choice..

>>137590235
I recall that he was drawn with them in that second series episode where he gets kidnapped and sold for some guy's human experiments. Well, the late-70s low detail equivalent anyway.

Nah, you're wrong about that. They're quite unique. Name a single other character that can even hold a candle to Jigen, Fujiko, let alone Lupin. Goemon I can think of quite a few, but none of them are as cute.
>>137593791

They don't really have any, or it's negligeable to say the least. Whenever the side stories come on, they neither compliment nor deteriorate their characters, only highlight and reamphasize what they already are and always have been.
>>
>>137591504
Kinda. I do like those a lot, but to me it was very obvious that after chasing and being chased for so long, that type of attachment would come about naturally. So it didn't resonate as much when it was 'revealed.'

Best episodes I think correlate to the quality of Lupin's schemes. "The End of Lupin the Third" is the most recent one I can think of, where it's like "how's he gonna get out?" There are many likely scenarios, but the one that turns out to be true is so wicked, so clever and so cheeky that a) you never see it coming b) it's actually well thought out.
>>
>>137600893
Oh well, I probably wouldn't be able to play them anyway. Still, it'd be nice to have a game with the new cast. The last one was in 2010.
