Okay, I loved Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna. Honestly, it was great. The art, the story, the characters, the fact it’s the first Lupin III anime series IN TWENTY FIVE YEARS. It would be awesome if the same people who worked on this series did another one, let’s be real.

Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna is a prequel of sorts to the Lupin III series. It focuses on Mine Fujiko, her past and how she meets Lupin, Jigen, Goemon, and Zenigata.

I thought most of the series was going to be episodic, but it turned out a lot of the episodes had an impact on the overall plot throughout the 13 episodes. It ended up feeling like a mystery anime a little bit, with Lupin trying to figure out what was going on with Fujiko’s past. The one thing about the story I did not like was the cop out with Fujiko. In the end, we really don’t learn much about her past which was a little annoying after so many episodes thinking you had. The surprise twists were cool, which did make up for it a little. I also enjoyed that the series catered to a more adult audience. There were jokes and Lupin being Lupin, but overall the series was pretty dark which I liked a lot.

Now the art! The art was my favorite thing. I absolutely loved the manga-inspired stylistic art that was used. The dark shading worked well with the dark themes and made everything look super creepy. It also had a 60s/ 70s feel to it which, obviously, works perfect for the series. I heard a lot of people say it was distracting when the series started, but I think after a few episodes you get pretty used to it. The animation was also amazing, the action sequences were amazing, everything was amazing.

Watch Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna. Especially if you’re a Lupin III fan. It’s dark and beautiful and although the story had a few set backs for me towards ending, everything else was great.

Ikoku Meiro no Croisée was really delightful to watch. The story is adorable and it’s fun to watch Yune adjust to life in Paris, as well the Parisians adjusting to Yune. She’s so adorable that you just want to squeeze her until she pops. It’s a general slice of life anime, which is one of my favorite genres. There is some humor but just “DAW THAT’S SO CUTE” kind of humor. The character designs and general art was a really nice mix, I think. You get your typical moe character with Yune, but then you get the super realistic backgrounds with it. It really made the show more interesting to watch.

There were a few things that I got tired of by the end of the series, though.

  1. Yune’s constant need for Claude to accept her and to belong. This was fine at the start of the series when Yune was new to Paris and her and Claude didn’t know each other, but this shit was still happening in episode 12 and I was bored of it. The second thing I didn’t like has to do with the first. And I think if we had less of 2 we wouldn’t have to deal with 1.
  2. Claude’s constant dick moves to Yune because he has daddy issues. Again, this was okay at the start of the series when Yune and Claude didn’t know each other. But still getting butthurt at Yune because she wants to help by episode 12 is just silly, and actually seems a little forced to me. Okay, I get it. You watched your dad die when you were young. That sucks balls. But Yune is a little girl who just wants to help, and you know this about her. WHY YOU GOTTA BE MEAN TO HER, BRO?

The end of the last episode was cute though, and Ikoku Meiro no Croisée was a good watch, I think. I would actually be pleased to see a second season pop up.
