    Another fun episode. It looks like the next one is getting back to the main plot.

    I was expecting Da Vinci to have done the same thing the Japanese scientist did, encoding his mind in writing form, rebuilding his mind based on random people's dreams is a bit crazy.

    It's too bad. It was a really fun watch and a breed of adventure that you don't really see in anime anymore. I hope it gets popular and they make Lupin IV.

    As for the last episode. The first half was a bit weird but seemed about right as far as everything goes and the second half showed they knew the characters even under their at times goofy exteriors. I liked both Rebecca and Nyx a lot (it's a shame Nyx kind of lost his part in the second half).

    Hope someone subs the two special episodes when they end up on the DVDs. Weird that Italy got those two episodes during the broadcast run.

    I wonder if blue jacket means any characters from Italy will return. Either way it's good news. I enjoyed that series quite a bit and if they do something similar I'll be happy.

    Here's the OP. They went for an interesting style for it, though the rest of the show should look more like part 4.

    The first episode was quite good. Not quite as kick ass as episode one of Part IV, but it was the strongest first episode so far for the season and set up the next one nicely.

    Holy shit, it's out already?

    Fucking sweet, thanks for the headsup, I was just gonna say that bot the OP and ED are not as good as Part 4's but then again those were the best of the whole series. Tough nut to crack.

    The episode was ace. And yeah part IV set the bar too high for the OP, but part V's is still quite good.

    Interesting idea to start the series. The series never really played with the idea of Lupin living in the modern world of social media and how that would affect the world's attention.

    The deep web stuff is also nicely on point. They've done their research.

    Starting the first episode with a Goemon team-up getaway was good. These guys shooting the shit while bolting from the cops is just too cool.

    I like how they've managed to add 70's/80's antagonists with a modern style.

    Lupin's getting cryptocurrency now. :kfam

    For real? I actually haven't seen all of the TV series, only Part 1 and Part 4, which I rewatched recently. Everything else was a bunch of movies/OAVs and specials. Didn't recognize any of the killers that showed up so far, it's cool that they're treading back and reusing characters.

    So gotta watch the rest of the Green jacket plus the Red Jacket and Pink jacket series.

    It's only a Scam if Lupin sends a card.

    Nah I mean aesthetic wise. They look like a bunch of Go Nagai or Osamu Tezuka characters. Hitmen fighting with fishing rods, chains, ect and taken very seriously as threats.

    OH. Okay, totally missed what you were saying, I suck dicks.

    But yeah, one thing that I really like about Lupin is that no matter they modernize the series, they always bring something straight out of its 70s roots.

    Ep 3 is out.

    If they keep this pace up this'll become some of the best Lupin ever. Part V is basically what most of the movies need. More runtime. Fucking Zenigata hasn't even gotten here yet.

    A really fantastic episode. I wouldn't say it's surpassed Part IV yet, but it's going in the right direction if it wants to be able to. I'm getting more attached to Amy too. She's no Rebecca but she's her own unique person, and fantastic in her own right and additions like that make the is another thing that makes recent Lupin great.

    I really love modern Lupin's tone and hope we keep getting more of the series like this one, IV, and the recent movies.
