Feel free to talk about this week's episode here.

Also, feel free to start new threads in here as appropriate for future episodes as I may not be paying attention or available to do so!

Very good episode, things are starting to get very interesting(not like it wasn't before). The convo between Ami and Lupin was cute!

Things get in serious gear with this episode. Lupin goes full-on celebrity camera hog, which is a good strategy to wear out the public, BUT it won't stop Marco Polo from sending out assassins.

LOL at Jigen hearing web rumor of he and Lupin as lovers. 

Lupin protecting Ami is sweet. And also awesome, it's not often he gets provoked into being a real frowning badass.

Those assassins look really kooky (especially the fishing dude), but it's vintage Monkey Punch style so that's okay.

This second episode is continuing the nice streak started by ep 1. I loved how Lupin turns situations in his favor,
with unforseen consequences however.

Good commentary on today's use of technology, social media, and how our behaviour is being altered by it.

The banter is VERY good! I mean I am surprised of how lively and 3-dimentional the trio sounds! Speaking of which,
Goemon is far better used in those 2 episodes than in the whole of part IV!

Nice knack at the fujoshi ship too, though it didn't please everyone.

And it is good to see the franchise refusing to pander to lolicons, as illustrated by Lupin's outraged reaction at Ami's suggestion.

Speaking of Ami, she is like the logical evolution of shut-in computer specialist children. They really go all the way in that department
and I am curious about how her personal arc will unfold.
Time to play the game, time to get a chance !
