I've got to say, The Woman Called Fujiko Mine is probably my favorite piece of Lupin III media, at least outside of Castle of Cagliostro (which is mostly because of the pure craftsmanship of the film). You'd think that if somebody tried to make a Lupin series a commentary on sexual politics and feminism (which I don't go that much into in the video, mind you), they would fail miserably and the show would be a laughing stock of the franchise. But no, it's very formidable. It may take a couple of viewings to really drive home how good it is, but when it does, it does it hard. I was glad I took this opportunity to talk about it.
