TOONZONE, WHAT DOES THE SCOUTER SAY ABOUT HIS ANGER LEVEL?!
Don't make him angry. You won't like him when he's angry.
Lupin: What? But I didn't give her that book...oooooohhhhhh.
To be continued...
Nix went Super Saiyan
I apologize, apparently her boy friend was Abdul Alhazred.
They're not going to pull that "first letter of each line" trick, are they?
Zenigata's gonna blame Lupin for this, isn't he?
You know, you really shouldn't drive angry...
Not the bees!
Wait wrong movie.
Or it'll say something like BE SURE TO DRINK YOUR OVALTINE.
Checking somewhere, it looks like the letters said...."-IGZAMIA TE-"
....okay, so it's likely Italian, and unfortunately, I don't know Italian.
We are apparently starting on the actual arc, a first for Lupin considering the heist of the week format we are used to.
That fight scene with the animation change, it made me think of The Animatrix for some reason. Additionally, I think Nyx watched Bebop's return last week and tried a little of the bloody eye himself... obviously got it off screen. Of course, it's a theory.
I did like that the whole trio including Fujiko were together. I miss the times all three guys aren't together as that's when I tend to enjoy the show the most. The storylines involving a certain character when you don't see the other(s) throughout except for maybe one scene are still good to me, just prefer seeing all three together - even if not with Fujiko. I anticipate more episodes in the future where some of the guys don't have any to little screen time but I'm sure to continue enjoying the episodes.
I saw these episodes loooooong before Toonami aired them in the US.
What was with that animation change? And why do so few of the Italian characters have accents when everyone in MI6 does?
British accents are easier for Americans to imitate than Italian (see Caesar Zeppeli).
I thought that this episode was pretty good. Rebeca smoking that much was kind of weird since that would make it much more difficult for her to be physically active. She was kidnapped really easily, but she's is a relatively new thief up against secret agents. I was not expecting MI6 to torture her, but at least they didn't play it in a fanservice kind of way. That it both a weird and sad compliment to give a torture scene.
That animation during Nyx's fight was just weird. It was almost giving me Samurai 7 flashbacks in terms of being so sudden and jarring. I kind of figured that Lupin was disgusting himself as the leader of MI6. With how tight their security was, it was the best way to get Rebeca out of there. He did seem more caring about her than usual, or maybe it was because he kept referring to her as his wife. Nyx being upset about a bomb placed at his house was understandable, but I didn't think he'd turn into a berserk monster over it. That was surprisingly intense.
While the book did come from Rebeca's only love, I couldn't blame Lupin for assuming it was based on some thrills kick. That has been Rebeca's motivation all this time, so it feels a tad late to give her something deeper than that. I almost forgot that this was a two-parter. It felt kind of weird considering how the show has been primarily episodic and the whole Dream of Italy plot hasn't been brought up for awhile. Overall, it was a pretty good episode.
Funny how after we were discussing Rebecca was feeling rather childish in "The Lovesick Pig", this episode comes along and gives her some motivation. There's depth under what I can only assume is a facade: she isn't entirely doing this for the thrills. She wants to know why her boyfriend went mad. It makes her a bit in depth, and Casandra Lee's performance was touching.
Although I would not recommend seeking answers to mysterious books. That sort of plot ends up with someone getting eaten by Cthulhu.
