To answer the previous question: episode 98 from red is when pops dies ans lupin goes out of his way to steal his body and has a moment when it looks like he really is dead
you’re right, we forgot that episode (and it’s a good one all around)! still no tears, but we do get this little bit after Lupin says he needs to be at the funeral and the gang tells him it’s too dangerous
Hi! I just recently got interested in Lupin and I've been absolutely enthralled with LupinZenigata since I searched through this blog (thank you for that)! I know there have been plenty of instances where Zenigata has mourned Lupin's "death", but has anything like that happened vice-versa? I think it'd be really cute to see Lupin getting all choked up over Zenigata (as weird as that sounds).
It’s super rare to see Lupin actually get choked up over anyone’s death (real or faked). In the 2010 special The Last Job, Lupin does spend a little while believing Pops is gone, but it’s…really anticlimactic? We were disappointed, anyway, we think everyone should be crying over Zenigata.
The most you get out of him is some tears when Fujiko fakes her death in red jacket #119, and he’s unusually emotional over Goemon in #112. Maybe he usually “knows” that folks are really okay, or maybe he’s a cold-hearted asshole.
First, I love this Tumblr! I was hunting for Lupin III yaoi before tumblr, and it's a joy to see some people are trying to gather all the love in one place ;) One question... is there any doujinshi's you can recomend? Places to download/buy? (I'm mostly looking for anything that has Zenigata in it)
Thank you! Unfortunately we don’t know of any Lupin doujinshi available in English (we definitely asked about it at a recent con and received a resounding “NO” from the resident yaoi specialist). Probably your best bet is to make an account over at Pixiv so you can see all the good stuff in the Japanese tags. Any of our followers have recommendations / other sources?
I've had a rant building up, and I don't know who else to tell. Why does nobody like Red Jacket Jigen/Goemon? They're so supportive of each other, and they enjoy doing nothing together... and they don't ditch each other like Lupin dumps them. They seem like BFFs in that show and several specials, so where's their shipping manifesto? 0_o
We’ll admit to being major Jigen/Lupin shippers, but we’re also fans of this pairing, and there’s plenty of material to be had in all three series (and several of the films/specials, notably Tokyo Crisis and Columbus Files).
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
