Title: Do These Look Familiar?
Post by: Robotech_Master on December 22, 2007, 06:13:52 pm
These are screenshots taken from the first GinRei special (from the Giant Robo anime series). In the anime, they're among a number of other still photos from Agent GinRei's file, detailing past exploits.

I think they might look a littleā€¦familiar (well, the first, certainly. The second may be just a coincidence, but it looks similar in pose to me to another shot from the same movie).

What makes it even funnier is that Ginrei's Japanese voice actress is none other than Sumi "Princess Clarice" Shimamoto.

In my own graphic novel, I include a parody of the same shot.  But that's not yet noteworthy.
On the other hand, that is a pretty cool reference.  Something that not even all Lupin fans would get.

God that is awesome. Just goes to show what an influence Lupin still is.

that first pic is undenyably taken from Lupin !!  ;D

i like it , it's one of lupin's most famous scenes (as recrated in the castle of coligostro i belive)

i always liked that part it always stood out for me ... was actually thinking they should re-do that part in newer TV specials !

thats pretty cool though , it's a homage to lupin ... lol she even has a walther p-38

Here's one more, also from the first GinRei OAV! Note what's going on in the right-hand side of the frame, and what's in the background.

And here's another. This may be reaching, but get a load of the guy in the blue jacket halfway out into the aisle right under Ginrei's arm, and the guy in the dark hat over to the left.

Every time this thread comes back to life, the title has me expecting that it's about Fujiko...    ;)

Well, the background in the first picture strongly resembles the Cagliostro chapel, and the priest's outfit is that of the Archbishop from Cagliostro.

There's a few references in Azumanga Daioh, which, come to think of it, I should try to finish watching soon.

In episode 8, in her dream, Tomo does a pretty good imitation of Fujiko when she screams out Lupin's name for no reason.

And in episode 20, Tomo mentions Fujiko again when explains that she grew her hair out the previous year to look like her.

She also mentions in the same episode that the wants to become an officer of ICPO.

All of this is indeed attention worthy and I believe that it would be worth the time to watch as well. As a matter of fact, Lupin is really a great anime and it is still famous in these modern times as well, just like a few more animes. In fact, it is indeed fun to watch and the characters looks great too. She is definitely the good looking and cute one. I have been watching it for a few times now.

Ask yourself how many anime series that began in 70s (or 60s if you count Pilot movie) is still a popular franchise today?
Not many. The ones I know are just two. Lupin and Gundam

Well, there's also Astro Boy.  And maybe Speed Racer.  But I really think of any besides those.

Wow, more Lupin and Cagliostro references. I can't believe it. I want to see these episodes. Also in reply to the first post up there, that second shot is quite similar to a shot of Lupin taking his diving suit off in Cagliostro. And since that other sequence is in direct homage to Cagliostro and the wedding sequence, I wouldn't put it past the animators that they totally ripped off the animation of Cagliostro for her disrobing her diving suit. I haven't seen animation stealing for myself, but I'm sure it's not the first time. XD
