Germanfag here. Still remember the time when it used to air on mtv. It's pretty much what really got me in anime.

Haven't seen the new movie yet though.

I thought it was great. Koike's style is one hell of a treat, and I love it when Lupin uses the Walther. As much as I'm enjoying watching the Red Jacket series right now, I really miss the gun fights from the Green Jacket series.
>>
It's pretty fucking good. Hence why /a/ doesn't talk about it
>>
I'm not watching it out of spite.
>>
>>118027345
For what?
>>
>>118026243
Didn't know subs were out. Guess I'm a baka.

>>118027345
But Mari Okada has nothing to do with this one.
>>
This part was genuinely creepy. Greased-up Fujiko was a nice touch though.
>>
>>118026664
What is it with German OPs and techno?
>>
Downloading it now. I'm excited.
>>
>>118026832
I haven't watched it yet since I didn't realize it was subbed. Why is it in 2 files?
>>
>>
>>118031167
It was the 90s.
>>
>>118033867
It's two, 26 minute episodes.
>>
>>118033963
Thanks, dang, I thought it would be longer. Still hype though.
>>
Is that Live Action Lupin movie out yet?

I wanna watch it.
>>
>>118034147
I haven't heard anything about it.
>>
>>118026243
The anticipation and the wait were well worth it.
>>
>>118033894
So I remember watching Lupin back on Adult Swim.
What's the difference between the green jacket series and the red jacket series? Which came first if I wanted to download all of Lupin?
>>
>>118036227
The green jacket series. The Lupin series can be confusing if you incorporate the idea of continuity a little too much.
>>
>>118036227
>What's the difference between the green jacket series and the red jacket series?
Green Jacket came first and it's generally more serious in tone than Red Jacket. Green Jacket Lupin was a suave James Bond type lady killer while Red Jacket is more of a lovable goofy oaf. Green Jacket episodes were more straight-laced and filled with action while Red Jacket were more campy fun in vein of Hanna Barbera era shows. Both are good for different reasons but Red Jacket is more well known. Not sure what the new Blue Jacket era will bring but Jigen Gravestone made me excited for more with the new TV anime next year.

Green Jacket is the first series from 1971. Red Jacket started airing in 1977. Both are availible on BakaBT. Green Jacket is a bit darker. For instance, Lupin and the gang have no problems with killing people (at least in the Oosumi directed episodes). Red Jacket is a bit more slapstick, and characters are more likely to shoot guns out of hands or cut off peoples cloths than kill them.

Green Jacket is closer to the manga.

>>118033894
My big regret is that the Lupin series itself has a "non-continuous" storyline so it's really hard for me to watch it, cuz you know, there's nothing to keep me going. Monster of the Week-type stuff just isn't too good for those who like genuine character building and plots, I think.
>>
>>118036760
With Lupin's length, I think that'd be a problem. Long running series that try and keep a continuous narrative tend to not be so good.
>>
>>118036964
Legend of Galactic Heroes? I read a lot of really lengthy book series and they do just fine. I'm not critiquing Lupin, just saying that it's style unfortunately is not something I can maintain interest in.
>>
Aside from the asspull explanation for how Jigen avoided being shot in the head, it was pretty great.
>>
I, too, did not know that subs were out. I should've RSS'd this. I'll watch now, thanks. Underwater's the only option, right?
>>
Proper manga scanlation never. I'm disappointed that no one wants to scanlate fucking Lupin.
>>
>>118037381
As someone who knows Japanese, I imagine that there's probably no good, HQ raws for the whole series.

There is, for a while now.

You sure about that? Those look suspicious to me.

Good lighthearted story. Great action and visuals. Fun music. I loved it.

I was suspicious of the weird bubbles and text formatting, but that may just be because of how old it is. I can't think of any other explanation.

Anyway, seems easy enough, I dunno why no one's picked it up.
>>
>>118037912

Your "suspicious" comment confused me so I just posted another page. I don't see anything wrong with the bubbles myself.
>>
>>118037827
>>118037632
I have all of the Tokyopop releases. I could take that translation and apply it to the raws. I don't know Japanese, so that'd be all I'd be doing.
>>
>>118026243
Lupin is all about randumb things but fujiko anime series ruined lupin movie series reputation.
>>
>>118037967
They're horizontal and doubt fit the text. I mean look at that guy saying "ちがう・・・?"? Instead of one vertical bubble, it's a plain circle that the word barely fits in. Same for the next line he speaks. And the top right bubble has a lot of empty space, which is uncommon. Again, it's probably because manga standards were different when Lupin was written.
>>
>>118038019

While that would be nice (not all of the TokyoPop volumes are scanned), TP's translation itself seemed iffy.
>>
>>118038138
Yeah, that's certainly true. Too bad there aren't any better options in English.
>>
>>118038180

Well, it's not like it's going to be scanlated anytime soon. Your offer would be nice. I see you in pre-2000 threads often enough, or if you can post a torrent on Nyaa when you typeset them, that'd be nice.
>>
>>118038283
>or if you can post a torrent on Nyaa when you typeset them
That I can do. I'll start doing it after this week. I'll be off from college for a month for winter break, so I should have plenty of free time. Are the raws up on Nyaa?
>>
>>118026243
Is it a new series? I can't find any new info on it
>>
>>118038557
It's a new special, Lupin the IIIrd: Jigen Daisuke no Bohyou.
>>
>>118038613
Ah so it isn't the one debuting in Italy?
>>
>>118038718
That's next year.
>>
>>118038718
yeah thats still happening.
Also that end credits Mamo easter egg showing up was all kinds of great, i would totally watch a remake of that movie in this style, god damn.

In a few minutes.

Did the Blue Jacket era start already?
>>
Who knew he had such expensive tastes?
>>
>>118039081
With this movie. A new TV series begins next year in Italy
>>
>>118039183

Which movie? Daisuke Jigen's Gravestone?
>>
>>118039223
Yes. It's the beginning of the Blue Jacket era
>>
>>118039118
All that mafia money had to go somewhere.
>>
>>118039298

Alrighty, guess I'll jump into the new era with that.
