Lupin III Thread
Anime of The Decade will soon be upon us.
I kinda wish they kept the designs from Jigen's Gravestone, although these new designs are fine too.
Lupin episode zero is a pretty good starter movie. It explains some of the back story for the characters. But Lupin movies are like Bond movies, they are always good and it doesn't matter if you have any idea about the series.
Lupin Series 1 and 2
Castle of Cagliostro
The Last Job
Daisuke Jigen's Gravestone
Dead or Alive
Island of Assassins
and more that I don't feel like typing.
The continuity of Lupin III is all over the place. First Contact is just ONE version of their origin. It's Jigen's story about how they met. There's no true origin or continuity to the series.
Fujiko Mine was good, but it wasn't based on Lupin which i very much disliked.
But that being said now we're getting a real Lupin anime it makes a GREAT lead in to the real event.
So we only have to wait weeks
Are you saying there is only fucking WEEKS until this madnass hits /a/?
>implying anyone's going to sub the Italian version
I mean, didn't it take people ages to sub Wakfu, and even then it was far cry from quality anime watchers are used to?
I'd prefer to wait for the Japanese version.
What's your favorite Lupin episode?
Mine is One Chance for a Prison Break.
I seriously doubt it, Italy must have their own fansubbing community and there's no reason for Italian speaking people doing English fansubs outside this one instance. Not to mention that Italy has relatively low % of English-speakers.
Some time ago I wanted to watch some French and Italian movies, most of them did not have any subs despite being few years old, and those which had were translated very badly.
Many Italians follow English releases because they are often faster and there are much less Japanese-to-Italian translators than Japanese-to-English, resulting in many series not having Italian subs.
Italians also like to reciprocate help received, and at least one or two are going to translate the series in English, though they might leave timesetting\editing\etc to "locals"
>But Lupin movies are like Bond movies, they are always good
You just have bad taste.
No since the original team behind the first Lupin anime is working on it so it'll be more instyle of the first anime than Scooby Doo Red Japan Lupin and Nolan Green Jacket Luin.
I want to get into it, but I don't want to watch that ancient old stuff. Is there a newer season which doesn't look like it's made with camera obscura where I still kind of get introduced to everything?
You made me curious about the italian Lupin OPs, so I went ahead and googled them.
I have no idea what they're saying, but they're pretty nice, truth be told. I think it's all of them.
you forgot the first Italian opening:
It's even in English, so you should be able to understand what generations of little kids were listening during lunchtime or afternoon snack break. On national television.
I think it would have been fitting for The Woman Called Fujiko Mine
Why aren't you raping her soul?
Yep, the first opening.
I think those who chose it as opening weren't really good at English...
start by visiting the home of Maurice LeBlanc in Etretat, Normandy. Then you might be ready to read the first Lupin stories, and on your way to someday watching the anime.
if you're lucky.
Don't forget training every day with your top hat, monocle, cape and cane ensemble.
I've been doing it wrong all this time. I better arrange a visit ASAP.
Better get to practicing your jiu-jitsu, faggots.
Depends on your tastes, tbh. Yasuo Yamada will always be Lupin to me.
It's in every single Lupin thread. Might as well roll with it.
Just making sure I wasn't missing out on anything by watching it in English.
I grew up on the english dub and now I find it uncomfortable if Lupin's voice is different.
Actually made it kinda hard to watch Cagliostro at first.
There being a shitton of different English language voices for Lupin III is pretty much par the course. If lack of consistency is a problem then you probably should watch it in Japanese.
In Lupin's universe, he's the reason why the Mercedes-Benz SSK is a rare car.
So people actually dislike Castle of Cagliostro? I can understand if it's not your favorite, but thinking it's bad is just plain wrong to me.
It could just be my nostalgia factor, but I saw that movie when I was 12 and I still think it's fantastic. I showed it my younger siblings when they were about the same age and they loved it and it got them into anime and Lupin.
This gonna be some Ken-sama shit but bear with me.
I was a little too old for it, so when Naruto got started I kinda missed the whole wearing the headbands and ninja running everywhere trend.
But I was still susceptible to that kind of shit. So Cowboy Bebop's airing on TV, I'm desperate to find something else like it, I stumble upon Lupin, I'm hooked, I wanna live this. I start studying the Gospel according to Lupin III.
I start getting in shape, I gotta be the kind of guy that run and climb distances while carrying loot and be able to brawl with thugs. I told the guys at the gym I was going to college in a sketchy area(not totally a lie) and wanted to be a little prepared. Sure, I ain't gonna stop bullets but it wouldn't hurt if a guy comes at you with a knife or tries to just smash and grab.
I got fucking tailored sports jackets. Some in more neutral colors but I did get a maroon and a green one. I didn't take up smoking though. E-cigs weren't that big yet, and Drive wouldn't be out for another decade so something like toothpicks or something else never came to mind. I grew carefully maintained sideburns. I bought an airsoft Walther P38. I bought my best friend a fedora. He never wore it.
This wasn't an everyday thing, I didn't have money for that kind of wardrobe every day. People thought I was in an amateur ska band or something, but it did grant me a lot more self-confidence.
Green vs Red hit too close to home.
Well, if we're doing this. Around the time Lupin was airing on AS, I started dressing and acting like Jigen and was even seriously considering learning how to use a gun.
But that wasn't appropriate for a 14 year old girl so I stopped.
Girls in suits is my fetish
I think it has become cool not to like Castle of Cagliostro now. Now that everyone knows it is the mostly popular and highly regarded Lupin movie.
Personally, it's just not my favorite. My favorite Lupin movie is The Mystery of Mamo. However, Castle of Cagliostro is still a great and gorgous film and I'm gettin' that shit on Bluray.
I have a soft spot for Krillin Lupin thanks to the old Lupin streams.
Get out from under that rock, son.
Lupin who? Nothing but us cute girls here.
