What are your thoughts on the new series?
Im an old fag so I used to watch it every night on adult swim when i was a kid
I recently saw a few episodes of the new series and I worry the producers are afraid to make any of the raunchy humor that made the show so enjoyable
Episode 20 was unbelievably boring
The others, not so much
I want to shag Rebecca so bad even if she's just a Fujiko clone
Rebecca must taste like cigarettes
>the producers are afraid to make any of the raunchy humor that made the show so enjoyable
It's 2016, people are easily offended nowadays
New Series is pretty good but I don't know what the fuck they're doing recently. Episode 20 was eh when ,usually, it's pretty entertaining and there's a Leonardo Da Vinci clone for some reason?
>tumblr hair Fujiko
>Episode 20 was unbelievably boring
I know senpai, It's because Lupin,Fujiko and Zenigata barely had any part in it and it was primarily about some old faggot and his car. What was the point? Usually episodic ones tend to be good.
So, is this Lupin a one-off thing or is there a possibility for more in the future? Since this series was made 30 years after the previous one even though Lupin is apparently really popular in japan?
>Im an old fag so I used to watch it every night on adult swim when i was a kid
Is this what's gonna pass for "oldfag" in Lupin threads?
I have to finish it, but i enjoyed what i've seen so far. I should make it an endeavor to get the soundtrack. Lupin music is always Elder-God Tier
It was on Adult Swim nearly thirteen years ago. Although, it really feels a lot shorter than that.
That said, I think oldfag as far as American fans should only be applied to the folks that were around for the scant amount of VHS releases in the 80s and 90s.
What's this I hear about Tony Oliver aka best Lupin dubbing the 2015 series?
>Play Smash Bros with friends
>10pm walk home
>watch toonami by myself
>pokemon comes on at 4am
Fuck....this thread has brought tears to my eyes. I wish I could go back to the 00's. Felt like I hit a fucking brick wall.
The early 2000s were nice, but I don't think I'd ever want to go back to them. Well, at least not the part of them where I thought I honestly looked cool in a fedora and trenchcoat.
Episode 20 wasn't that bad.
The car is also similar to the one that Clarisse drove in Castle of Caglisotro,
Not him, but Adult Swim rerunning the same 26 episodes made me fucking mad.
I like it so far.funny stories with small drama and then run away to a new town.
Some parts are kind of cool, but a few episodes are frankly awful or boring, like when the gang had to return a dog. Moemon was the only reason I watched that episode all the way through.
Visuals and character designs are pretty good.
>start new series
>Lupin gets JUSTED in the first episode
copy pasted from the "white whale" thread, maybe one of you anons recognizes this.
I never watched Lupin the III but about 12 years ago i it watched it on german MTV late at night. Don't know if it was a normal episode, a movie or an OVA but i remember some scenes:
>there were fighting with alot of soldiers in green uniforms. they killed many and there was a car/motorbike chase scene.
>the guy with the black jacket and hat (i think he is called Jingen) was trapped in a house and someone threw a grenade in there but he survived because he hid under a trap door.
>the gang tried to rescue a girl. the girl has watched the scene earlier and though jingen was dead (im not so sure about this part)
>at the end, they all board a space shuttle and fly to off to space with a shitton of money while credits roll in the background. The music in the background was electronic over which the word "Lupin" was repeated many times.
Guys who' watching the NEW dub of Part IV? It's the same guys who dubbed Part II 13 years ago. I'm fucking stoked. Tony fucking Oliver who was the best dubbed version of Lupin is returning along with Richard Epcar as Jigen and Michelle Ruff as Fujiko. This is fucking historic. The return of the best cast but now It's gonna be faithful to the Japanese script. God damn I'm so excited to see Tony's voice come out of the New Lupin's lips. I know they're recording now but anyone know of a possible release date yet? I will preorder the Blu Ray so damn quick
There's no release date as of yet, presumably because they're likely not even close to finished with dubbing it. I have my doubts as to whether it'll be released this year, but I'm crossing my fingers.
>What are your thoughts on the new series?
It's been quite a ride.
>Discotek is releasing the Blu ray/DVD of Jigens Gravestone with their dub of it
>Discotek is releasing the Blu ray/DVD of all the episodes of Lupin III Series 2
>A Dub of Lupin III Part 4 is being dubbed now and will be released on Blu ray/DVD
Is it the year of Lupin?
Italianfag here, and like many other italianfags, i watched Lupin in his every incarnation in all the the phases of my life, geez, even when i was a teeneger i still liked it.
But i have to say that new series gived me moments of boredom i never had for others Lupin's series or movies. You can see this series is made by Lupin's fans unlike a lot of other relunch, you can see how Blupin act like the "older" Lupin would act, same goes for the gang, even if i would have liked to see more from Jigen and Goemon instead of Fujiko.
Some episodes are really great, like the one with the old car (a very Red Jacket's plot) one of my favorite.
So what is the problem? Probably the new friends and enemies, Rebecca was unbearable, she should have stayed as a one-shot Lupin girl, instead of a recurring character.
James Bond was a cool concept, but wasted. And the final episodes anti-climatic.
But i wont say this is a bad series, it just have some low moments, but in general this new Lupin is enjoyable.
I think we can all agree that the 4th series Zenigata is the bast Zenigata we had in years. Best character.
I just want to see an episode of Part 4 in which he's throws on the green or red jacket and give us a throwback episode.
