I've been feeling a bit better these past few weeks, so I have more motivation and ideas for videos. In this part of the review, I wanted to get a little more philosophical about the anime I'm covering, even if it is a colorful and silly series like G Gundam which doesn't exactly lean on sophisticated thinking and understanding. Sometimes even the dumbest and simplest things can jog the brain. And I wanted to be a little more creative about how I covered this.
Of course, I also had to acknowledge that I actually have the Devil Gundam in Penguinopolis' lower levels. It's used to protect the colossal city-fortress with its self-repairing nanomachines.
Episode 23, "The Memories of a Beloved Witch"
Synopsis: Lupin and the gang are confronted by Mattea, who utters a phrase that sends Lupin into a seemingly hypnotized state.

While Zenigata questions Mercedes, Jigen and Goemon are forced to turn to a surprising source of information to find their colleague. Lupin journeys to the mansion he grew up in and finds himself face-to-face with his "mother". It's not a sweet reunion!

I'm back, people! I usually take January off, but I happened to need February off, too, because of mental health issues. It's one of the reasons I'm tackling my very real existential crisis in the opening bit of this video and probably throughout this season. But most importantly, I'm back to reviewing anime, and wanting to cheer myself up, I picked G Gundam, because it's a deliriously fun show by that master craftsman Yasuhiro Imagawa (who you may remember is one of my favorite anime directors).
Episode 21, "Welcome to the Island of Bubbles"
Synopsis: When the Lupin gang are forced to make a stop at a small town after a heist because the bridge is busted, they get drawn into the imaginary love stories of a girl named Muru. Can Lupin find the famed Mermaid Fish to impress Fujiko? Or is the art of love too illusive? It's an old fisherman's tale.
Episode 20, "Two Terrible Ladies"
Synopsis: Fujiko encounters an old thieving partner, Amelia, who she recalls her troublesome past with. The two decide to team up once more to infiltrate the Church Ayon, a cult whose treasure could be worth their while. But as usual with Fujiko and people like her, things aren't quite what they seem! Is everybody's favorite backstabber going to get a knife in her own rear? It's a new adventure that will have you shouting, "Dayvee!"
