LUPIN THE THIRD, THE WOMAN CALLED FUJIKO MINE
No of episodes:- 13
Genres:- Action, Adventure, Comedy, Seinen
Studio:- TMS Entertainment
Lupin III is a series that has been running for multiple decades and is a major influence on Western anime today. And I wanted to see atleast one Lupin anime.
So for my first Lupin III show, I saw the one surrounding Fujiko Mine.
Except the final few episodes, this show followed an episodic layout with various different heists and noir-like stories whilst having a more darker feel than I imagined.
From what I saw, I loved those darker tones this show had with its story. The first few episodes were great since the action was a lot of fun, whilst the heists were great, but it slowly dipped in quality as time passed.
The final few episodes had a story but were bizarre and kind of hard to get at viewing.
Overall, the episodes were good but it could've been better.
From what I saw, Lupin's main characters are awesome.
Arsene Lupin III is a cool character with a lot of charm, a perfect main character for a noir show.
Fujiko Mine is also a very interesting character who has a really crafty, cunning personality with using her best assets, her looks, to complete her heists.
Daisuke Jigen was also a very cool character that really felt like a badass at times.
There was some development with Fujiko but I would've liked more.
Art & Animation (9/10)
Such a breath of fresh air compared to most shows today.
The art is dark yet gives off such old-school charm that my eyes were captivated by it.
The characters looked great (Fujiko looked hot) and the action was awesome too.
Amazing OST that just fits this show's appeal. And the voice acting was great.
But the OP was... strange. Wasn't a fan of that unique approach.
It was fun and different but the slow middle did drop this score.
I wouldn't mind seeing another Lupin III show after this. This was good.
