Quotes

[opening sequence]
Fujiko Mine: Now, stop everything you are doing, allow your heart to race, and look at me. Theft is not to take something away or break something. It is a special crime, an elegant vice; it is an amalgam of secrets, felonies, mischief and fear. Just like Wuthering Heights' Heathcliff, I'm defined by my all-consuming passion. Stealing is a sexy prison from which there is no escape. Its psychological foundation is... unknown. Who is the slave? Who is the master? Is God watching her, has God ...

The most boring thing I have ever suffered through in my life
2 February 2017 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

This is not Lupin III.

If you came here expecting hijinks, hilarity, high energy, and happiness in a cheerful caper comedy you are most certainly NOT going to find it. This series is dour, depressing, downbeat and, honestly, really freakin' ugly to look at. Shadow detail is achieved by the animators rudely pencilling in charcoal lines across the characters and backgrounds and it looks HORRIBLE as well as frequently not matching the lighting of the scene. It also reboots the history of the characters and has them meeting and learning about each other so don't expect Lupin, Jigen, Goemon, and Fujiko to pull off a big, happy heist as a team while Inspector Zenigata bumbles after them in this 13-episode bore. The plot is a confusing, senseless mess, the characters are all wrong, the dialogue is stiff, grim darkness is abundant...it's the complete opposite of what you want from a Lupin III series.

Not even the popular theme tune made it. I realize that Yuji Ohno is getting very old these days but the music they use in this show is wrist-slittingly dull. The show's opening number even begins with Fujiko ordering "Cease what you are doing!" Take that advice and switch it off. This series is an insult to Lupin III. Absolutely horrible.
