No Lupin in this episode. I wonder if next is a Goemon episode.

DrFurball: You're right, she's doomed.

A lot of talknig in this episode. That's not a bad thing
but I'll need the translation to understand completely.

But the least I can say is : this is really a JIGEN episode.
Fujiko is a bit more minor in this one. Overall, I like this portrayal
of a somber but human Jigen with complex feelings.

In conclusion, I enjoyed it, though I thought it was quite short.

And anyone noticed the Cowboy Bebop allusion with the gunfight in the church ?  ;D
Time to play the game, time to get a chance !

New closing credits. I don't care for the style they're drawn in. They look too "animesque". I'll wait til I can understand it before I give a formal review. Still no comedy, though.

I think the gunfight at the church is more a staple of Heroic Bloodshed movies, which Cowboy Bebop took cues from.

Yeah, like there was this one shot of her in the new credits that made her head look slightly bigger than the rest of her body in that artstyle.

I was little underwhelmed with this one. I liked the episode, but I was hoping there'd be more action.

Still, it's interesting to see what kind of relationship Jigen had with this woman. I'd definitely like to know what they were saying throughout the whole entire thing to clearly understand the situation between him and his ex-lover.

Saw the gallery a few minutes ago. It's always amazing
the amount of detail in clothing, weapons and vehicules.  ;D

Plus, it seems Jigen has got another gun apart fromthe magnum, a Luger.
That's intersting since in the manga, he has a weapon looking a lot like
a walter 38 or a luger. So the magnum has an affective side, a story of Jigen's
lost love. That reminds me a bit of it's personality in the series 2.

And the episode ends again with a bang (except this time, it's a real gun).  :)
Time to play the game, time to get a chance !

I also noticed how the church theme in this episode was like Cowboy Bebop. Its like they're making references of it in this series. Which isn't a bad thing since Cowboy Bebop is inspired a bit by Lupin. Kind of throwing nods back and forth. I really enjoyed this episode, kind of shows why Jigen doesn't trust women. It looked like he was set up by one who he had feelings for. I hope after in the Goemon episode they remake how Lupin and Goemon meet, then go to Jigen and Lupin getting together, and in the end the four team up.

I also would like to say, I like how Zenigata is calm and cool in the first episode cause he thinks it will be easy, but then flash to the future and he's down and out of luck trying to catch Lupin. Practicly gone insane.
