Lupin’s greatest treasure is his harem (from Stolen Lupin).
#canon also ships everybody/everybody
pretty sure this is the point in the conversation where she says “I see why I can’t be a part of the Lupin collection”
she knows what this is really about
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).
If anybody feels like putting together a shipping manifesto, here are a few resources from our archives.
Zenigata takes Lupin’s hand and offers to spend the rest of his life with him.
he proposes with a tiny handcuff ring
(Because I never properly submitted this, and it’s too fantastic not to share).
The Green Jacket shot is Lupin making a romantic dinner to woo Fujiko.
The Fujiko Mine shot, with the same blocking/scene composition, apron, and even recipe (probably, since they both involve peeled potatoes and a soup pot), is Lupin cooking dinner for Jigen.
Bless you, Sayo Yamamoto.
this is sweet as hell
sadly, Goemon never got dinner, just set on fire and shoved in a ditch. no wonder he never sticks around long?
Pops fundamentally misunderstands what Lupin meant by ‘tie me to the bed’ (from Dead or Alive)
#the eyebrow is all the context you need
is that suggestive toe-wiggling
Boundaries, Lupin. He only wanted to sleep handcuffed to you (from Steal Napoleon’s Dictionary).
after making sure they had the nicest room in the fanciest hotel, taking turns feeding each other steak dinner…at this point, we know the handcuffs can come off whenever Lupin wants them to. he stays, though, because Pops put so much effort into this
date arrest scenario, and he waits until Zenigata’s asleep to make his escape. that’s…that’s just sweet.
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
