Well, I’m glad to see my site doing well, even if I am only getting comments on one post! Guys, if there’s anything else I can do to make you stay here longer tell me! I even have the P3 soundtrack. So just tell us!

Unfortunately though, I have Prelims next week, mind you its only 3 of them but I will be “studying” so as per usual this site may be inactive, lol. But remember, comment on us or even just read our posts, anything will do!

Lupin III – Red vs. Green

Holy hell… after nearly a year of promising to review it, i finally get round to Red vs. Green.

Now, I’m a huge Lupin III fan (I blame Caslte of Cagliostro), i had to see Green vs. Red.

Lupin III has been seen all over the world. Singapore, London, New York. But none of these are the real Lupin III, just a bunch of phoneys impersonating him. As it turns out, there are literally hundreds of Lupins out there, all of them different but essentially the same as Lupin.

So here we are introduced to (I suppose) Yasou, a noodle chef who works for minimum wage in a decaying noodle resteraunt. Soon Yasou beomes obsessed with Lupin, begins dressing like him and soon things begin to spiral out of control.

Lupin on the other hand is looking for the Ice Cube, which gets a bit of screen time, but as far as the main focus goes it’s all about Yasou and Lupin. Plus the english dubbing on this was laughably funny (There’s an American character in it and his lines in English are hilarious, and they don’t even mean to be).

My biggest dis-appointment was the fact that it tried too hard to please. It was created for the 40th aniversary for Lupin III (since 1967. Yeah, it’s that old.) and to be honest, it felt way too much like fan service (It keeps using the Castle of Cagliostro’s theme song), and at the same timeĀ  it want’s to be distinguishable. None of Lupin’s partners in crime really have a major part in it.

I’d probably say this is only for the die hard Lupin fans like myself. But if you like the sound of it, watch some other Lupin III stuff first and then watch this, because it won’t really be that appealing.
