    Default Great Anime

    I thought I would make this thread to show you guys a really good anime I found not long ago. I assume some of you have heard of Lupin the Third before, which is an old but rather entertaining anime. This new anime, A Woman Called Fujiko Mine, is a revamp of the series but it takes a new spin on the atmosphere of the original. It takes place before the franchise of Lupin III began and focused mostly on Fujiko Mine as the main protagonist of the story. Its directed by Sayo Yamamoto who was previously known for her series Michiko to Hatchin. Also the music producer is none other than Shinichoro Watabane. As for the animation, it is very well done and memorable. The visuals are innovative with the use of sharp grainy lines and colors.

    The story is also quite good aside from some unanswered questions toward the end, and I could go on, but in all, the anime is a dark and more mature take on its predecessor and I definitely recommend it! I'm interested to know if any of you have heard of this before, because I only recently found out about its existence. After watching it I think its become one of my favorite animes alongside Cowboy Bebop and Kids on the Slope.

    Here's a trailer:

    Not sure if I'm thrown off by the dirty look, or not cultivated enough to appreciate it Either way, if you're ranking this alongside Cowboy Bebop it's got my attention.

    Heard of it but never really felt like watching, although since it's a Funimation licensed show I'll probably watch it.
    You should watch Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt.
    That shit is totally sophisticated.
    Really.

    I saw the commercials for it as well but decided not to watch it until some time ago. Don't know why I didn't watch it sooner.
