Lupin thread? Lupin thread. Episode 12 is out, first cour finale.
I like it a lot, many character driven episodes like Mine Fujiko but with none of the pretentiousness, red jacket-style goofy but serious when it needs to be. Also, overarching plot.
Shout-out to Italianbro for his hard work.
It's definitely my AOTY. It's definitely striking a strong balance between every tone that Lupin's ever had. It's adventurous and whimsical without being too soft or too goofy, and there's an edge to it without being overwhelming or bleak.
Last thing I ever spent money on that was anime related was Lupin DVDs over a decade ago.
This could be the thing to break my dry spell.
Netflix could surprise us. They always announce these licensing deals late. Like after the anime finishes airing in Japan late.
Lupin of all fucking things not being picked up for simulcast? There's something fishy going on.
So this is a shitshow to try and get subs for. Any helpful /a/nons know of a good subgroup doing this?
You know I really thought they were going to fuck up the series. Fujiko was a nice departure, but green/red jacket Lupin was the heart of the series. I happen to love everything Italian and frankly I think this series does a FANTASTIC job of bringing lupin into the modern times.
Would be the uncontested AOTY if more people had watched it. The lack of subs means there are hardly any threads though, but the music, animation as well as the overrall structure of each episode are fucking stellar.
It's good and fun but it feels like it could be better if it was more daring. The best episodes so far are Jigen's (the one with the doctor lady) and Goemon's (the one with the assassin girl).
For this one? Nah. They would enjoy the winks and references, but Lupin's always episodic in nature. This and Fujiko to iuna are the only ones that have had an overarching plot throughout the season.
Newcomers might not realize that though. In that regard, I think you're right.
Beggars can't be choosers anon.
I just thought we were posting Lupin pictures now.
I normally just do it to keep the threads alive.
Might as well post some pics just for the heck of it.
>Newcomers might not realize that though. In that regard, I think you're right.
Yeah, those are the folks that I am referring to. There are people that get interested enough to ask though.
Fuck off, Shittimatsu.
Thank you, awesome Itali/a/non for your hard work.
