The fourth season's opening credits is set in a jazzy cabaret performance:
Lupin performs some tricks with cards and balls, and especially on Zenigata
Jigen makes a split-second appearance
Goemon performs a dance in Japanese costume
Fujiko appears in various dresses
Zenigata takes part in a puppet show hosted by the gang... who promptly run away from him.
I'm not a huge fan of anime, but for some reason, I love Lupin. Ever since it premiered on Adult Swim back in January, I've gotten a huge liking for it. Plus, it's so darn entertaining!!!
The cool thing about this show is how Lupin, and company in each episode always encounter a bad guy who may have something involved with what they're after. Of course to add more trouble is the restless Interpol inspector Zenigata whose been after Lupin for 7 years. In between these factors is off the wall antics, sexual themes, and lots, and LOTS of cleavage(courtesy of Fujiko).
Overall I like the show. It's pretty appealing, and it won me over from day one. If you've never seen this show, I suggest you check it out. You may like it.
P.S. Fujiko is HOT for a cartoon!
