I’ve never seen a Lupin show before, so I had no idea what to expect. But I liked it.
Ok, so the story isn’t much. Lupin’s a thief and he steals stuff while announcing it beforehand. He’s an amusing character, but simplistic. The female lead is a seductress. Even worse.
But damn, this show just oozes style. I think they’ve outshafted SHAFT in SHAFTiness. It makes me feel nostalgic, and I haven’t even watched the original to feel nostalgic about!
The action is tense and engaging as well. Lupin pulls ridiculous stunts like surfing on a giant rocket-propelled statue. He has quite the sense of humor as well, what with playing a ghost after being executed!
I’ll stick with this, but I’m not going to blog it.
