did you watched the complete series in japanese with english sub? In my language they changed a lot of dialogues. It's so frustrating Dx
At this point, we have seen everything in the original Japanese with English subs (though the quality of the subs has varied—-our pink jacket translation deserves special mention for incomprehensibility). It’s worth noting that we were introduced to the show through the Geneon dub of red jacket. Geneon is (in)famous for rewriting the script to make more contemporary jokes for Western audiences, as well as to poke fun at inconsistencies in animation or to lampshade recurring plot devices (bless them, most of these are given to Jigen: “lucky they’ve got these bullet-proof tables everywhere now” is a favorite).
We love the Geneon dub (especially since they often play up the queer subtext rather than write it out) but it’s always worth it to get the original dialogue. We unfortunately can’t speak to the accuracy of subs in any other languages—-followers, anybody got good sources?
This blog makes me so freaking happy and i swear to god if i end up with my ex boyfriend again and we manage to finish his jigen cosplay we're gonna take at least one smoochy pic just for you but thats all in due time you dont have to post this i just love this blog a lot
In the halls of anime history, there’s a duo well and truly ingrained as legendary partners: the Kirk and Spock of con artists, the Holmes and Watson of hallowed heist planners, two men so inextricably associated with one another that to mention one without the other is all but unthinkable. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Arsené Lupin III and Daisuke Jigen. No fan would question the unbreakable bond between the two. Any argument after that is only a matter of degree, time and place.
Now, when a series has been running as long as Lupin III, passing through the hands of so many formats and directorial visions, you can pretty much find fodder to feed whatever ship you like. Pick through long enough, and there’s a clip to suit your needs. This isn’t a matter of 26 episodes, or a few movies, or even a collection of manga volumes. No, we’re talking hundreds of hours of content perpetuating from the late 60s right on into the present day. And in light of that fact, we need to do a bit of structural housekeeping. Rather than attempting to analyze every piece of Lupin media, this essay will go more broad strokes with specific titles mentioned where applicable. It’s divided, for simplicity, into the following sections:
I. Three Jackets, One Gun: The Characters
II. A Wink and an Offer – Episode 0: First Contact
III. The Woman Called Fujiko Mine and Parallel Narrative
