Note: Due to IF Comp reviews and Yuletide, Currently Reading Wednesdays has been postponed to Sunday. We're really sorry for the inconvenience.

Currently I am reading various Lupin III specials and movies.

What? They got subtitles, they count. Bro I will fight you on this.

Anyway, here's what I watched:

Got those Loops on the brain )

Over here! (NSFW. Oh Japan, why must you disappoint me like this.) I can't wait until the series is out on Thursday, and we hopefully get some English streaming up.

Recently, as part of my anticipation for the official release of the new Lupin III series, I've been watching some scattered episodes of the third series, AKA the "pink jacket" series. Honestly? They're not that bad. A bit on the slow side, compared to the somewhat manic second series, and I've noticed a dip in quality in the second half, but still, not bad.

I even think that if this had been the series to make it to America first, instead of the second, things might have been better for the franchise over here; the animation, while still dated, is yards better than the second series, and the character designs are a little more to American anime fans' tastes. Sure, everything gets a little uglier after episode 25 or thereabouts, but then it's not like Adult Swim ever showed more than 25 episodes of the second series either.

More AMVs from my Youtubes. Gosh I hope I don't have to post anymore filler this week.

I can't think of anything good to post right now, so have some Lupin III AMVs.

Under a cut, just like last time )

(Note: I've only watched episodes 1 and 2 of the new series. Just in case you need to know.)

My hot take on the new Lupin III series is that it's pretty good! A rare (or at least uncommon) modern update that keeps the feel of the old while doing something new.

If you want more details than that...

Overall I'd recommend this one, especially if you're already a fan of the characters.
