Animation Night tonight is gonna be a cross-section of the Lupin III franchise, v helpfully researched by my friend Elaine! Unfortunately I have messed myself up a bit by being off my meds so I have not been able to write the kind of post I’d want to on the history of Lupin.
At this point I think I’m going to have to resort to, Animation Night will still be going ahead at 7pm UK time on twitch.tv/canmom, and I’ll write my post sometime later! Hate to do this and don’t want to make a habit of it, but them’s the breaks this week.
Plan is to watch Miyazaki’s The Castle of Cagliostro, and Takeshi Koike’s recent The Blood Spray of Goemon Ishikawa (a sequel to Sayo Yamamoto’s Woman Called Fujiko Mine series we watched last week, which we may watch some more of), and if I can get them down in time, one of the films from the 80s or 90s like The Fuma Conspiracy or Island of Assassins. Hope to see you there anyway 😌
