    I'm actually cool with Lupin, Part 1 getting an dub. I just like getting more Lupin dubs with the Geneon/Parts 4 and 5 cast.

    Urgh... Made the mistake of watching the Return Of Pycal special.

    It usually takes a lot for me to dislike a piece of the Lupin franchise, but that nonsensical pile of still shots, lousy early 00's CGI and naked ladies managed it quite easily.

    Episode 0 of Part VI aired. Farewell old man, you earned your rest.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Might be the three doubles talking but it was pretty nice to share a drink to Jigen. Now...

    Yep, it's gonna take a while to get used to the new Jigen VA.

    Dunno, he sounds a little like green jacket Jigen to me, which softens the blow a bit.

    I'm waiting for the dub anyway. Just like I did for series 4 and 5.

    The Japanese is great of course, and that's pretty much how I've seen most of the movies, but the Geneon cast is just SO good, they're my preferred group. Tony Oliver just IS Lupin, his is the voice I hear when I think of the character. Though he doesn't quite do the "in pain" sounds japanese Lupin does like when he touches something hot and goes "ya cha cha cha" but that is what it is.

    It is a real shame that cast has never done a Cagliostro dub, and presumably never will.

    I'm going to be waiting for Sentai's home video release for Part 6. I agree, the Pioneer/Geneon cast are so perfect for these characters.

    A bit into pink jacket all i can say is that it feels like a fair attempt at a revamp, constantly hampered by it's bizarre sense of style, meh music pieces and goofier feel. Like in the hands of a not coked out art director this could've turned out respectable. But i mean stuff has to change and evolve, and this is one way to go about it, but it didn't pan out. Gotta admire the balls to try something weird tho, and i mean it has so far had some alright eps. But Fujiko looks even more off than a Miyazaki episode, which is suprisingly distracting. Like she doesn't really have a nailed down look to begin with, but my mind cannot process this as a take on Fujiko, it feels like the designers weird OC tags along all the time y'know

    It is somehow worse on re-watch, despite me remembering this as being utter garbage to begin with. The CGI stabs my eyes and the there is literally nothing there to engage your mind. Not popcorn machine bad, but it is down there with the crap Lupins

    The fact that I can perfectly hear the "ya cha cha cha" says how well I was adjusted to the former VA line up. But I've only seen Cagliostro and from Fujiko sereis onwards, so...

    I watched a bit of pink jacket recently too...but later on, when I guess the art style gets even goofier. I was recommended episodes 30-40-something and most of them were actually decent. Except the one with the dolphin that wanted to marry Lupin.
    The art style is gross, though. Fujiko looks like ass.

    I'm kind of obsessed with the closing credits. There's a really strong nostalgic quality to it. The moment I saw it, I felt like I had seen it before in the 80s, though that seems very unlikely. I suppose it just *looks* like stuff I watched in the 80s. 84-85 was the pinnacle of that nostalgia for me. Not to mention there's a sign for 94.7 KMET "The Mighty Met" which was a real station in LA that I used to listen to.

    Oh god it gets worse looking? I'm at like episode 20 and it's not exactly a prize now.

    It is kind of weird because Lupin has always had kind of a goofy cartoony side to it, but at it's best it is kind of subdued, does real life cartoon make sense? Like there is for the most part a realistic enough tone to it all but people get blown up by bombs and walk away with soot on their face and all. But in pink jacket is kind of veers toward being just a cartoon. Dunno if that makes any sense just stream of thoughting it today

    I finished part 4

    Oh man I really enjoyed this series, definitely gonna check out part 5 as soon as possible then go see some movies

    The main cast is so damn enjoyable, and the premise of the story of a band of thieves who steal for the hell of it is simple enough that you can basically justify making this series till the end of time with different approaches to the story by different writers and keep it going as long as possible as long as the quality remains at a constant level and nothing to earth shattering happens

    Fair warning. Part 5 (and 6) is the same crew as 4 so the quality is pretty much the same, but if you branch out past that the quality is going to vary wildly as you see more of the franchise. Some of them are fantastic, some are awful.

    Most fall somewhere in the middle though. Series 4 is more or less the usual quality.
