Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine Episodes 7 & 8
Oops, I kind of didn’t really feel like blogging episode 7 on its own.
It was…. kind of disappointing.
Also, I’ve kind of had a crappy week, but things could be worse! Thank god it’s Thursday, amirite?
Sakamichi no Apollon was delayed because Martinman apparently has a family that he likes to visit. We’ll be doing a double episode entry later this week.
So yeah. Episode 7 was the Goemon episode I had anticipated for a while, but sadly it left me kind of bored. I even watched this episode TWICE and didn’t really feel anything about it.
It was mostly about Che Guevara and the Cuban Missile Crisis and I thought it was great how Fujiko and Goemon were just thrown in there to solve the situation, but man I hate politics! Even politics from years ago!
Yeah, I know. Game of Thrones is about politics but it keeps me entertained with the killings of everyone’s favorite characters!
So anyway, I honestly don’t have much else to say about Episode 7. I noticed that just like in Goemon’s first episode, they continue to misspell country names and change the names of politicians and revolutionaries. They completely changed Che Guevara’s name to Fiadel Kestro.
More highlights of that episode were:
Fujiko dressed like April O’Neil.
Goemon riding on top of a plane and slicing up some missiles!
And of course we got to see Fujiko titties.
So sorry to any viewers who may have been looking forward to my take on this episode. It’s hard for me to blog about episodes I didn’t enjoy. Anyone who read my Mirai Nikki entries would know.
Anyway, on to episode 8.
This episode made up for last week’s episode and really put me in a good mood. We had Lupin and Jigen working together, Lupin being domestic and cooking a homemade meal for him, a hot looking fortune teller (though old), Oscar trying hard to win back Zenigata’s respect, and last but not least…
The character of the day: A fortune teller by the name of Shitoto Chandler has had a lithograph stolen by Fujiko. The interesting thing about this character is that all of his clients had been victims of Lupin. Shitoto’s main job in his line of work is to predict the deaths of his clients.
At some point, Lupin sneaks into this guy’s car and has a little talk with him about his clients’ deaths. Just about every death had been planned by him, seeing as he had lost his power some time ago. Afterwards, when meeting up with Fujiko to buy back the lithograph, we see another element of the old fashioned Lupin series: disguises!
Probably one of my favorite parts of this episode was seeing Lupin and Jigen interact with each other. Lupin helps Jigen escape from arrest with a disguised moving truck. From there, they become the best of friends! Or at least, they start to.
And what’s an episode of Lupin without a pair of Fujiko titties to go along with it?
So, that concludes this week’s episode. I expected it to be about Zenigata, but it was more about everyone, minus Goemon.
I’m really curious about this Count Owl guy. I wonder if he’ll actually show up soon, or if that’s the only time he will bother Fujiko. I’m hoping for Fujiko to her revange though!
