First Impressions: Lupin the Third: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna

Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine

Whoa. How retro and classy and 70’s styled can you go? The show focuses on master thief Lupin, as he meets a phantom thief who uses her body to steal anything she wants, called Fujiko Mine; and the duo sets up a rivalry straight away. Simple? Yeah. Classy? Easily.

With most anime looking the same, reusing modern sounds and modern BGM, Lupin III is a welcome break for almost any anime lover, and well…it’s classy! I don’t know quite how to describe it beyond that, in all honesty. It’s just so…different. In a good way, mind you. The old-styled graphics combined with the jazzy tunes and beat of the show just brings everything to life in a classy, funky way. I don’t think i’ll blog it, but i’ll easily be watching it.

MimiLupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine celebrates 40 years of Lupin, which spawned 20+ specials, 7 movies, 3 OVAs, and 3 older TV shows. And I am ashamed to say that I haven’t seen a single one of them, though I am impressed with this style. I decided to call upon one of my best friends, who is a big Lupin fan, to write a first impression. He’ll be here soon to add his expert opinion!
