Thoughts on the new Lupin III TV series (The Woman Called Fujiko Mine)

Hiatus Announcement: Deadlines are approaching fast so I’m really busy at the moment. I’ll be back hopefully on the 15th I posted my season preview a little bit later than usual this season, because I was waiting to see if any other series were announced.

Steins;Gate episode 25 (DVD/BD special)
